**********SOLD OUT! STAY TUNED FOR FUTURE TRAININGS IN 2019!**********
This experience is intended for those feeling called to teach yoga and those simply seeking to deepen their own personal practice. Combining the wisdom in ancient yogic teachings with a modern understanding of anatomy and physiology, this training explores yoga as a framework for personalized health in the most holistic sense – how to use one’s own mind, body and soul to awaken to your best Self!
You will learn to truly share the teachings of yoga; rather than recite sequences, learn to observe bodies, deliver skillful instruction and create an inclusive environment for discovery. Perhaps, more importantly, you will transform in the process through self-study, tuning into your intuitive wisdom and cultivating tools for bringing your yoga practice to life off the mat!

“I completed a 230hr Yoga Teacher Training with Kat in October of 2017 and the experience was nothing short of life changing. Kat’s patience, humility and humor creates a safe space for students to explore themselves as well as their yoga practice. My training with Kat, Sara and Jill gave me the confidence to teach yoga as well confidence in myself and my ability to be a calm, positive person in every aspect of my life.” – Michelle
“One of my favorite things about Kat’s YTT was her ability to create an open, nurturing, safe space to learn and facilitate students’ growth. She’s honest and keeps it real with her own journey and goals as a human, teacher, and facilitator which encourages her students to do the same. Kat is a gifted teacher whose teaching style is full of wisdom and inspiration. At the same time, Kat encourages the idea of always maintaining a “student” mindset, even as a teacher – growth and learning new things are always encouraged and never finished. I graduated from YTT feeling fully confident in my abilities as a teacher. I am incredibly grateful for the situations that aligned and made it possible for me to take this journey with Kat.” – Barb
“Going into the anatomy portion of training, I was excited to learn something new, but also intimidated by my lack of knowledge and the vastness of the topic. Jill’s positive and upbeat energy on day one made me forget about any insecurities I had. She presented a lot of detailed material in a very approachable and understandable way. I appreciate Jill so much for her amazingly fun personality and the wealth of knowledge she has. She is a great asset to the PALM + PINE training team!” – Barb
“My journey in yoga teacher training with Kat Soper was nothing short of life-changing. Kat’s extensive knowledge, individual attention, and unique ability to push you to live at your greatest capability is what makes her teacher training program above all others. Her passion for yoga is undoubtedly apparent in each conversation, lesson, yoga class, etc that she leads. I am deeply grateful for having completed my yoga teacher training with Kat- she is an inspiration for all. Her wealth of knowledge mixed with her kind moral compass makes her an exceptional guide through training as well as life as a whole. The lessons and work I did throughout training will be ones I forever return to throughout my entire life. Life-changing indeed.” – Lindsay
