Come and initiate an effortless flow of wisdom, so that teaching becomes not so much a simple regurgitation of what has been learned, but a sharing from ones own experience and an inner place of connection and peace.

Meet Stephanie Crochet, certified RBY Trainer and lead assistant for this training

A Los Angeles native with French and Tahitian roots and a deep passion for living life authentically and to its fullest, I embrace my joie de vivre and graciously share it with those I love, my yoga community and random people I come into contact with.

When I took my first teacher training in 2012, it was never my intention to teach yoga full time.  However, after completing 500 hours of training through the YogaWorks method with my mentor and teacher Kia Miller, it was obvious that I would leave a very cushioned corporate job as a successful recruiter to pursue my passion in teaching.  Since then, I’ve devoted my time to studying and practicing yoga, having traveled to India many different times to complete another 300 hours of training with Radiant Body Yoga. I love reading yogic texts, experimenting with different breath and meditation practices to truly understand what works for my body, mind and spirit.

While rooted in the YogaWorks training where I learned about proper alignment of postures and safe sequencing, my style of teaching is influenced by the trainings I completed with Radiant Body Yoga.  My intention as a teacher is to help students fall in love with yoga beyond the postures; to embody yoga off the mat; and to use these ancient practices to live an authentic life.

What Others Are Saying...

lotus outlined in purple

I had the privilege of being instructed by Kia Miller for my yoga teacher training, which proved to be nothing short of life-changing.

Kia has a profound amount of knowledge about yoga--as a philosophy, a physical practice, and spiritual path. But more importantly, what I took away from our 4 weeks together was being in the presence of a woman who exemplified living a yoga-centered life. It is one thing to "learn the facts of yoga," and another to watch someone walk its path. I want to be like her when I grow up!

Patrick Leslie

The Radiant Body Yoga Teacher Training in India was more than just a 200 hour teacher training, it was a life changing experience.  Kia’s passion for yoga is infectious. Her approach of masterfully combining the physical and more subtle elements of yoga is potent and creates a powerful practice. She is an incredible person to have learned from.

Julianne F.

Besides being a superb asana teacher, Kia is an incredible spiritual being and amazingly knowledgeable about all those aspects of yoga seemingly strange to the beginning practitioner. Her way of introducing the sacred into one’s practice is subtle, gentle and wonderfully intriguing. I will always remember her philosophy sessions, which gave me a glimpse of her depth of knowledge, and left me to my own aspiration of truth and pursuit of god. I feel honored to have had the opportunity to study under such a competent and inspiring teacher.

Julia K.

"Kia is at once an approachable and radiant human whose devotion to a higher power shines through her smile and her words. She shares with her students an energetic quality that not only engages them in the physical aspects of yoga but also draws them into the metaphysical. Her devotion to the philosophical underpinnings of this practice are evident in her discussions of the sutras, the subtle body and other topics in philosophy. Kia’s wisdom is abundant in these areas, but she is also a self-professed student who learns alongside her students, always keeping an open mind and considering alternative viewpoints. Her genuine love of teaching and learning as well as her compassion for all human beings make her an extraordinary teacher and one that I am privileged to have had. I am excited for any student who will learn from her!"

Jill Bergman

"Kia is a master. Her depth of knowledge for the physical and subtle aspects of yoga go beyond words.  She lives and breathes the yogic life.  Her path is one of devotion, dedication and love which she has infused into every moment of this beautiful training. "

FAQ

What if I have to leave the program after I have started?

We understand that sometimes life happens. In the unfortunate event that you are forced to withdraw during an active training program, you will be missed! Refunds for active trainings are processed on an individual basis, and are generally prorated based on the length of time spent in the program. When circumstances permit, we can also discuss the possibility of transferring you to another program. Please email [email protected] with questions.

If I am pregnant, can I still apply?

You are more than welcome to apply and enroll, but we do not recommend it. Whether or not you are new to yoga, this may not be the best time to dive into something as intense as motherhood and a yoga teacher training program all at once. We pack a lot of movement and activity into the program, and both yoga training and pregnancy require many demands of your body. To do both could be very stressful, physically and mentally. We recommend revisiting the possibility once your baby is born and you are feeling the support to be away from family. If you do enroll, please consider the timing of your delivery, as you will be held to the same attendance standards as students who are not pregnant.

If I am injured, can I still apply?

A: Injuries are addressed on a case by case basis, but if it can be safely managed during training, then yes. Most of us have an injury (minor or major, emotional or physical) when we embark on the yoga journey. A vital part of teaching yoga is learning how to make modifications and/or adaptations for individuals with injuries. Throughout all of the practice sessions during your training, modifications are offered and anatomy is discussed. Please email [email protected] to discuss further.

 

Is there any homework?

Yes, there is homework. There are also regular quizzes to ensure that everyone learns the essentials and is prepared for the final exam.

Do I need to read all the books before the start of the program?

Please do you best to read as much as you can before training starts.

Will I have to write papers?

Yes, there are homework essays. If English is your second language, please know you will receive full support and extra assistance to help you through.

What kind of certificate will I receive?

Yoga Alliance 200-Hour Certificate
