250-hour Hot Power Vinyasa Teacher Training



To launch future leaders on a journey of self-discovery through a deeper connection to a personal yoga practice while learning the skills to teach yoga and transform the lives of others


What is E.L.I

We believe in a yoga teacher training curriculum that delivers accessible, high-quality education through multiple learning formats, providing anyone who is committed to doing the work the opportunity to uncover their personal strengths and get up to something bigger than themselves. 

Diverse and deep learning to cultivate expertise in both teaching and leading is the core foundation of our cumulative 1250-hour YTT course curriculum. Beyond teaching yoga, our YTT programs provide a transformative experience through leadership development, personal inquiry and growth, clear communication skills, and deep listening allowing you to experience the tools of yoga; asana, inquiry, and meditation, and apply them beyond the studio walls into your personal life, relationships, aspirations and career.


Evolution Learning Institute (E.L.I.) led its first 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training in 2009. Since, E.L.I. has successfully completed 32 Cycles of our foundational 250-Hour YTT certification program and produced over 550 Graduates.
