Yoga Education Programs
Welcome! WildSide Yoga has set out to offer the most thorough and traditional yoga education programs in Orange County!
Rather than being lectured to, we form a collaborative environment and build towards a communal style of learning. This method is conducive to a creative learning process in which we have the freedom to steer our trainings into the direction of most interest to the participants while meeting Yoga Alliance's standards. While we stick to ancient Vedic traditions by placing a strong emphasis on Yoga Philosophy and one's meditation practice, we are not confined to the teachings of any specific tradition. Instead, we will study and draw from all lineages and more importantly, take those principles and apply them to real-world applications. With an eclectic knowledge base of the many facets of yoga, participants will be able to develop an organic affinity to their areas of interest to develop or advance their teaching style.
After completion of any of our teacher trainings, you are considered a life-long student of the program and are welcome to attend yoga philosophy sessions at no cost to you.
Check out our extensive offerings below and see if one of our programs is right for you!
Payment plans are available. In order to receive the early registration discount, participants must give a $500 non-refundable deposit by the dates indicated for each program.
