A Program Built on Integrity, Inspiration, and Leadership

Yoga is, like the universe, vast and ever-expanding. There is not just one way to “do" yoga. Yoga is not just a type of exercise we fit in once a day, to cross off a list. It is a field of infinite knowledge.


Our Yoga Alliance Certified 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training program is designed to reflect exactly that: to show you the many doors of the yoga world. Once you’re finished with the program, you’ll have significant clarity regarding which door you’d like to open next.


You're probably searching other teacher training yoga programs right now, which is great!

What makes Ohana's 200-hour program so different?


Ohana's 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training program is Yoga Alliance Certified, distinguished, highly intentional, and led by two women who whole-heartedly believe in the lifetime practice. We are not here just to talk the talk, but to also walk the walk.


There is a creative spark inside each of us, waiting to be inspired. This yoga teacher training program is designed to stir what inspires you uniquely. As the program illuminates the many doors of the yoga practice, you will get to know what interests you most. Through this self-exploration, you are able to step closer to your purpose and what gives you meaning.


Leadership is so much more than standing in front of others and sharing your vision. Leadership is the embodiment of energy through example. We believe yoga is more than just a physical practice, but a conscious-forward lifestyle that allows you to access your deeper layers of awareness through the direct experience of doing it and feeling it — every. single. day.

We’ve planned incredible industry collaborations that give us goosebumps just to think about and the leads who are a part of this program are incredibly knowledgeable, experienced, and are truly living out their passion.

Alyssa founded Ohana Yoga + Barre just over 4 years ago. She has lead a vast amount of yoga teacher trainings since then and has found each experience to be even greater than the last. "To me, training students to become teachers is all about opening doors... doors of perception, doors of awareness and doors of intuition as there is no 'one way' to do anything. Commit to the process of embodying the intersection between logic, morality, intellect and heart. And do it in a supportive environment that doesn't require your perfection, but encourages your curiosity."

Social Media Manager, 200 E-RYT, Vedic Meditation Padawan, Soon to be published poet

What People Are Saying About Our 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training

"I signed up for YTT not to teach but to deepen my yoga practice and reconnect with my spirituality. These 8-weeks were an amazing journey shared with newfound friends that I'll stay in touch with for years to come. If you're looking for something more in life, YTT might just be what you've been searching for. Make the commitment, you'll be glad you did!"
- Katie J.

"My YTT experience at Ohana informed me so much more than my yoga practice. It helped me continue to point my trajectory towards a more intentional and personalized lifestyle and career path. I've made deep connections that have lasted for years and found a wonderful sense of community with the other teachers I trained with. If you are considering the program - go for it. It will be one of the best investments in yourself that you could make."

- Kelly B.

"Ohana means home and the moment you walk into the studio- you feel at home. Alyssa and team have created a studio with amazing yoga and barre classes- fabulous instructors and an environment that is welcoming. I completed the 200-hour yoga teaching training last year- and the experience was transformative. Ohana is one of the finest studios in the country."

- Colette T.
