Yoga Studies, Yoga Teacher Training,
& Continuing Education Courses
2020 marks my 20th year as a yoga teacher based in Southern California. I founded Full Circle Yoga's Teacher Training in 2012 and have trained over 40 yoga teachers. The curriculum is a trauma sensitive, accessible, breath-centered practice grounded in Patanjali's yogasutra inspired by the teachings of TKV Desikachar. Graduates of the program are competent and confident to teach small groups and individuals in settings as varied as parks, schools, wellness centers, homes, studios, and community centers. The program exceeds Yoga Alliance's standards in ethics and mentorship, which puts yoga teachers in the best position to safely and confidently teach
regardless of age or ability.

What graduates have to say...
"I was supremely impressed with my training experience at Full Circle Yoga. The modular program is intelligently designed in such a way that trainees are exposed to the material at a reasonable pace and able to take the time to really absorb all the various concepts in a meaningful way. Reading and journaling assignments are provided throughout the program that invite personal inquiry and reflection on one's own values, goals, and purpose--which I feel are at the heart of an in-depth yoga enrichment and training journey. Instruction on yoga philosophy is based on historical texts, and material is provided in a multitude of ways to meet the needs of a variety of students, including reading, lecture, powerpoint presentation, movie screenings, and guest speakers...I could not be more pleased with my experience with this training program." Kristy Cronkrite, Yorba Linda, CA
"My favorite text was from module 2, Cyndi Lee's Yoga Body, Buddha Mind. It read very smoothly for me, and I found it easy to connect with her easy to read style. The fourth module was structured and set up well to get us to act/talk and function as a yoga teacher. I enjoyed collaborating on the sequences and then practicing them as a group. From this training, I have the confidence to hold a safe space for others and to structure a class well." Kristin Daniels, Ladera Ranch, CA
"Tonight I taught a student with Parkinson's. Without your guidance and co-teaching your Ornish group (from Dr. Dean Ornish's Cardiopulmonary Lifestyle Reversal Program], I never would have been able to adapt for him. Thank you from the bottom of my heart." Lisa Lind, Orange, CA
"I signed up for yoga teacher training because I knew I wanted to help others. It was truly the best decision of my life. Kristen is a passionate, caring and warm teacher and her knowledge knows no bounds. She taught the obvious [subjects of] anatomy and the history of meditation, pranayama, and yoga, but also made us think about ourselves and our lives on a much deeper level. Because of Kristen I am a better human being and live a much healthier lifestyle. I am living my dream of teaching pranayama, yoga and meditation! Thank you Kristen and Jeff for providing a wonderful, compassionate and lovely studio. You're a hidden gem in Yorba Linda!" Diana Zavala, Long Beach, CA
