Join Nikki Vilella and Kevin Courtney in New York, NY, for an extended teacher training program inspired by the Wanderlust Festival experience. As at our festivals, you will be treated to world-class yoga instruction, live music, and a journey of self-discovery and exploration. You’ll immerse yourself in a community of like-minded and inspired yogis dedicated to daily practice and learning. Your in-depth training will conclude with a charitable seva project, a chance to give back to the local community.
Our vision is to create an outstanding training — one that produces inspiring teachers with strong teaching skills. The Wanderlust Teacher Training will give aspiring teachers a bedrock of knowledge and also offer seasoned practitioners the chance to deepen their practice. We don’t expect everyone who completes the 200-hour training to become a teacher, but whatever your path, the Wanderlust Teacher Training will guide you toward your true north.
