BYS Online 200-hr Teacher Training

Winter / Spring 2023




Ame Wren


Sara Basile


This training begins with the intention of being an intimate, dedicated and resourceful program. In addition to the many hours you will spend with Ame, this training also offers an opportunity to study with many of Boston and beyond’s finest teachers in a small (virtual) setting. There will be ample practice time, outside study & mentorship and abundant practice teaching. Expect to learn and grow a lot. This program will give you the tools to offer a well-informed yoga class to any student regardless of their background while also deepening your understanding of personal practice, on and off the mat.

Training hours will happen synchronously on Zoom. In addition to the hours we spend together, there will be homework and a study pod commitment (one meeting/month). We hope that by crafting our time together as a live experience, we will create a community virtually. 


To graduate, students must showcase their completion and understanding of the material covered in the training. This is done by completing all hours and outside assignments as well as passing a final exam. Graduation is not guaranteed. This training is registered with Yoga Alliance and exceeds the YA requirements for a 200-hour yoga teacher training.

This program is directed by Ame Wren and supported by the exceptional Boston Yoga School faculty.


As part of your training, you will receive a comprehensive manual, google classroom folder and a membership to Ame's Union classes for the duration of the training.
