Yoga Integrated Science™ raises the bar for yoga teacher training.
We believe that Yoga Teachers have a great responsibility. Yoga injuries and malpractice cases are real and prevalent in the exercise industry today. Our 200 and 300 hour yoga teacher training programs provide teachers in training with a deeper understanding of the anatomy and bio-mechanics of yoga.
Our weekend long courses meet once a month. Individual workshops are appropriate for anyone wishing to gain a deeper understanding of their own bodies and practice.
Our 200RYT, 300RYT or 500 RYT structured coursework and program have all been approved for submission to Yoga Alliance®. Yoga Integrated Science teachers in training learn to understand and apply the latest scientific research in anatomy, biomechanics and yoga philosophy to the art of yoga practice.
Any of our Teacher Training Courses can be taken a-la-carte for personal interest or for Teacher Certification with RYT. Our next course is starting soon –Submit your application to begin the conversation today.

What our Students are Saying
“I hardly know where to begin describing my experience with Yoga IS… The 200 Hr Teacher training literally changed how I personal train clients, prepared me to teach others their yoga practice and how to become stronger inside and out and be kind to the body. The instructor, Lauren Eirk presented the class in such a way that it was relatable to women and men with lots of ego. After her teaching I am proud to say I have a yoga practice and that I educate my classes as she has taught me. Best money I’ve spent for personal growth ever!”
Michael Bowers, RYS Virginia Graduate 2013
“The yoga I.S.® RYS 200 hour Teacher Training Program is absolutely life-changing, and has changed the way I view myself and my prospective students. I think less in terms of flexibility and more in terms of skeletel structures and anatomies to accept and nurture, less in terms of pretty instagram pictures and more in terms of real yogic philosophy. The combination of yoga IS founder’s Lauren’s no-nonsense knowledge and teaching with master instructor Donna O’Bryan’s gentle and inviting style is a powerful one; you will leave this program changed, grateful and more knowledgeable than you could have imagined! Get ready to Shine!!”
