The Wanderlust Teacher Training program is for experienced yogis and genuinely curious practitioners alike. Whether you want to become a yoga teacher or deepen your practice – this is an opportunity for you to join a tight-knit community committed to self-discovery and personal transformation. Inspired by our festival experience, the Wanderlust Teacher Training offers direct, ongoing access to outstanding mentors and guest scholars.

Our modular curriculum is designed to fit your schedule. You may choose to complete the training all at once or take one 50-hour module at a time at our Wanderlust Yoga studios, partner studios or in a striking natural setting before a Wanderlust Festival. Wherever you study, you’ll benefit from our unique digital resources, including pre- and post-training online courses.

The Wanderlust Teacher Training’s core mission is to produce inspiring leaders with strong teaching skills. We don’t expect everyone who completes our Yoga Alliance® certified 200-hour training to become a teacher, but whatever your path, our training will guide you toward your true north.

Our pre-training program is designed to prepare you for each module. These 25-hour self-study courses include video lectures, reading assignments, teaching exercises, and recommendations for your personal practice.

Modules I – IV

Led by Wanderlust Mentors and featuring Guest Scholars, each of our four modules covers 50-hours of in-person training – everything from anatomy to philosophy to practice teaching. Students may take modules one at a time and in different locations.

See Upcoming Trainings for the full schedule.



Our 100-hour post-training program includes access to six additional online courses taught by Wanderlust Scholars (master teachers), the opportunity to upload your own teaching video and receive feedback from Wanderlust Mentors and fellow trainees, new sequencing ideas, fresh playlists, and a place to plug in to a charitable seva project. Our goal is to offer you support and community throughout your journey.



Modular Curriculum

Use our modular curriculum to customize your learning experience by location and Wanderlust Mentor, and according to your personal calendar. Take all four modules together at a Wanderlust Yoga studio or partner studio, or start your training journey at a Wanderlust Festival and continue it in your hometown.

Our staff of Mentors are highly regarded teachers who will guide you through every step of your training. You will also learn from our Scholars – specialists on specific topics and renowned, inspiring individuals in the yoga community – who have written sections the training material and will join you for portions of your training. Meet our Mentors and Scholars.



The Teacher Training Manual

In addition to the personal guidance you will receive from your Mentor, we’ve created an in-depth training manual (digital + print) as an exceptional learning and reference tool for both during and after your training. A broad range of Wanderlust faculty – including leading scholars in the community and talented photographers and artists – have collaborated to create a resource unlike any other.
