Tell me and I'll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I'll understand.     ~Old Chinese Proverb


The path of yoga is an infinite, life-long journey. Teaching yoga allows you to share your beliefs, thoughts and actions, creating a life of integrity and authenticity.

Kaia Yoga offers many different training opportunities. There are several 200 hour sessions scheduled throughout the year.  This is a program created by Stan, Gina and Charles with an emphasis on vinyasa (breath and movement connection), intelligent sequencing, alignment, practical mindfulness and loving kindness. We have been offering 200 Hour courses since 2006.



Since 2011, we’ve offered a 500 Hour Yoga Alliance Program, the first of its kind in Connecticut. There is also Kaia Kids Yoga Teacher Training, designed to help kids find their inner yogi. Additionally, we have smaller yoga teacher trainings for prenatal, yin, restorative and meditation. So whether you’re a yoga student seeking to deepen your practice or a teacher looking to further your commitment, there is a training for you.
