Ancient Wisdom for Modern Practice

Our intention is to share the integrity of the teachings of Yoga in a way that are relevant and supportive of the modern student. As we share the practice of yoga and the art of teaching we have a deep place of reverence for the practices of yoga which have withstood the test of time for thousands of years. It is through this weaving of the history, alignment, science and sacredness that you will be given a platform to understand the teachings in a meaningful and fun way.

Our goal goes above and beyond the average Yoga teacher training, giving you the skills to be a strong effective and heart centered leader. You will be supported in doing the healing work that will create the space for you to embody the teacher. Through Sadhana support, personalized coaching, and subconscious belief clearing this teacher training will go deeper than the postures.

We will support you in the business of yoga, finding your niche, aligning your heart centered marketing and offerings in a way that will enable you to really share with the world and connect with those you are meant to inspire.

Thad Malik

Thad’s first adventure into Yoga was in 2007 while attending Central Michigan University. Seeking to improve his mental and physical health Thad was drawn to Yoga & found himself returning again & again. Yoga provided much more than Thad ever expected & he discovered a profound connection with his Spirit through Yoga. Thad completed his first 200-hour yoga teacher training course at Yoga Shala in Prescott, AZ in 2011. Thad would later own & manage the Studio for several years. He would study and experience many styles of Yoga with renowned teachers and artists of all kinds in the coming years. After loss and heartbreak and eventually becoming disenchanted with the business of yoga, Thad set out to India in search of something more. Through many trials & tribulations India embraced Thad and taught him much. He would return to India again in 2017 as a guide for Naropa University Students. He is quite sure there are more India expeditions to come. There have been (and continue to be) many people who have influenced & inspired Thad’s Yoga practice over the years. Right now, Thad is focusing on connecting with the Guru within each of us and present in all moments, remaining forever a Student to the Ultimate.

What our students are saying

“Where do I start. When I first decided to go on this journey, I prayed to the Creator I would be led to teachers that could help me get direction on my Yoga journey. My blessing were answered and more. The love and care they treated all of us with was inspiring. They raised the personal standards and responsibilities we hold as yoga teachers. For me they bridged the gap between my past and my yoga future. Not only did they appeal to my spiritual side, they vastly increased our technical knowledge of yoga. Because of this training I feel comfortable teaching this beautiful practice to others. I will never forget the people or the events that occurred during this training. For me this experience was life changing. .” - Cory

Although you work hard the entire time, you also play hard. #gratitude" - Hannah
