The quality of the curriculum itself is really high… I was really impressed with how the program was structured so that we got deeper into our practice at the beginning, learned about proper alignment, did some sequencing, and then some practice teaching. By the end, I really feel like I could put a class together…
…it was worth every penny for me, and I think even if you don’t really want to be a yoga teacher it’s worth it. - Doug

Kava Yoga is not affiliated with Yoga Alliance. We believe the Yoga Alliance currently functions only as an expensive directory of yoga teachers and studios. It exists to serve itself. Teachers and schools pay an annual membership fee to be listed in their teacher directory, and receive no other direct benefits from the organization. Kava Yoga does not hire yoga teachers based on their listing in the YA directory. We audition teachers, investigate the depth of their training and verify that they teach at a high level of integrity. No other organization that we know hires teachers based on their listing in the Yoga Alliance directory. In years past we have not been satisfied with the quality of accreditation offered by YA because they have proven time and again that they will certify any school that can fill out a form, pay hundreds of dollars in fees and claim to be a yoga teacher training school. There is no quality control, no visit to the school, no integrity in the accreditation process. We guarantee that Kava Yoga’s curriculum is set above the rest; we take Yoga and the training of Yoga teachers extremely seriously. Yoga studios in Long Beach and other cities have complimented Kava trained teachers for their knowledge, professionalism and well-rounded teaching. If you want to see the 2-1/2” Training binder every participant receives during our training, ask us and we will walk you through it. Yoga Teacher Training is a big investment of time and money. Make sure you find one that meets or exceeds your standards.
