Yoga Teacher Training

Have you been dreaming about finding a new, rewarding career? One where you can help others find a better quality of life, enjoy a flexible schedule, and create an ideal work-life balance?

Salute to the Sol invites you on a new journey to find fulfillment in your daily life and career as a certified yoga teacher. Our immersive training program is certified by Yoga Alliance, the largest nonprofit association representing the yoga community with over 7,000 Registered Yoga Schools (RYS).

This immersive 200-hour course prepares and educates you for a new beginning, nurturing your passion and love of teaching. Coursework will take place every weekend over the course of five months starting July 2022 at our home base in Key West, Florida, at the newly renovated Green Pineapple Yoga Studio on world famous Duval Street. The training will be led by owner of Salute to the Sol yoga and E-RYT Yoga Alliance certified instructor, Rebecca Schwab-Talpas.

This class is for ALL levels. You don’t have to be an experienced yogi, super flexible, or be able to do fancy poses to take this training. All you need is time, commitment, and a huge heart for yoga practice and people. The rest will fall into place and deepen at the pace that works for you!
