       “I am beyond grateful for this journey and could not be more happy with this decision. There are no words for describing what I’ve experienced and learned. I have grown so much on my inner spiritual journey. My attitude towards life, all beings and myself has changed. I see life with different eyes now. I recognize beauty everywhere and I am able to see what is instead of what was or could be. All the facilitators did such a great job. They supported and encouraged us every time. They embody their own experiences and they truly live what they teach. They hold the energetic space throughout the whole course and they offer a safe space for healing and sharing. They cultivate the energy of wisdom, love and acceptance. They made this journey both: steady and easeful. 🙂 The facilitators guided us along all lessons we had to learn and prepared us in an authentic and professional way for all our assignments we had to teach throughout the course to become a Yoga Teacher. I felt seen, heard and guided all the time, by the facilitators as well as by this wonderful community we created. Thank you to all teachers for guiding me through this Sacred Path.” ~ Namaste, much love & light.

We view yoga as a spiritual practice, as a path to self-realization, union, bliss, conscious connection, deepened awareness and mindful living. Throughout this process we explore different paths to Union including movement, song, dance, chanting, ceremony and more! In this journey, we embody yogic living, fully immersing ourselves in the experience of living and breathing this practice on and off our mat with our beloved community as our unwaivering support system. This path asks for dedication, discipline and courage to look deep within to uncover our truth and our own authentic connection. Without our daily distractions, habits and patterns, a new way of perceiving the world is revealed.

  • The Sacred Paths Yoga 200hr training exceeded my expectations of a virtual online program during COVID-19! Darin, Lacey & other facilitators made this experience extremely engaging through carefully selected materials, topics and discussions. This is just the beginning of my journey as a yoga practitioner but I felt I was given ample support, encouragement & resourceful content to help me grow in the yoga space & community. I would definitely recommend Sacred Paths to anyone looking to get their YTT as it blends spirituality & asana to make it a living breathing practice. Thank you again for this opportunity & cannot wait to meet you both in person, Darin & Lacey!

  • This Teacher Training that I received from Sacred Paths Yoga, make me stop, turn around and see that was another world alive, the Spiritual World, that I discovered through Yoga. I came to this training to learn more about yoga poses to get physically fit. But I found something more deeper, physical and Spiritual development. Also the combination of videos and live meetings make me to open my eyes and beyond. The videos gave us the information needed. The live meetings brought us (all peers & Teachers) togetherness, be able to express our thoughts, concerns, feelings and our questions to be answered when needed.

  • Sacred Paths came into my life at a moment when I was feeling lost and had no real path to follow after failing what was my original plan for living but with which I wasn’t completely comfortable. Maybe it was fate, destiny or pure luck, but I ran into an advertisement of Sacred Paths YTT, which I had been wanting to do for quite some time but never seemed to have the resources or time to do it. This online opportunity was heaven sent & I fell into an awesome group of teachers & fellow students who helped me not only deepen my practice of yoga & learn about sequences, communication in a class, history & philosophy, but also reconnect with life & a deeper purpose for me. The scholarship helped me be a part of a group for which I will be forever thankful and created a community that will last far beyond when the course finishes. Thank you Lacey, Darin & the rest of the wonderful family at Sacred Paths Yoga & I will be looking forward to seeing you again in the future for an actual in person experience

  • The online 200h ytt of Sacred Paths Yoga was one not to forget easily. It was powerful! It took a bunch of energy and I was willing to give it because of all that was shared. An amazing amount of knowledge and materials with respect for all styles and backgrounds of yoga. In this way I was able to choose and become the teacher that I am now. Through the live classes and the space held by the lovely, supporting and respectful teachers, there was still a sense of connection even though it was online. I feel ready to take my next step on this yoga path!

  • SPY's online yoga teacher training came very serendipitously into my life--I'd always wanted to get certified as a yoga instructor but could never carve out the time to attend one in person. I'm so glad I was able to do this in our virtual world--not only was I able to deepen my yoga practice during quarantine, but I was able to build a beautiful & international community of other yogis! Darin & Lacey & the entire facilitator team did an amazing job translating all the spiritual and practice lessons to a virtual environment, & made us all feel connected. They were all so generous with their time & their feedback, helping us all on our individual % collective journeys.

  • I recently took the Sacred Paths Yoga Online Teacher Training. I have always wanted to take a Yoga Teacher Training program to help deepen my discipline and self practice, and this online program came at the best time.  I was drawn to Sacred Paths because they have a strong focus on understanding ancient medicines within the practice of yoga. And I was not disappointed!!! I highly highly recommend the Sacred Paths Training program whether online or in-person. Even though my program was online and I have not "personally" met any of the other students - the amount of connection, community, support and love that was received was second to none. The teachings were vast, and I felt like they gave a very real understanding of the cultural roots of yoga and the different styles of yoga. Each facilitator brought forth all their own unique wisdom and experiences from their practice, which was incredibly insightful. And the shaman and medicine wheel teachings just added this layer of depth and transformation to the practice.
    I do a lot of Energy Medicine in my day to day life and studying ancient medicine modalities - but this course felt like it was this golden thread that woven all my existing teachings together. It also gave me more fundamental tools to use with my clients and in my own life and practice to bring depth and transformation. I think one of my favorite teachings that came from this program was this idea of soften - soften into the poses, soften into the practice, soften into the medicines, soften into the self, and soften into our healing. Nothing in life has to be harsh, invasive, and full speed ahead. Sometimes the greatest transformation takes place through the lens of love, compassion and soften into the experience or practice.
    I'm very grateful to Darin, Lacey and the whole team at Sacred Paths Yoga!!! Thank you for the most amazing experience, and the wisdom you have blessed me with. I will forever hold these teachings in my heart.

  • The 40 day program was just what I needed. It was immersive, their teachers were spot on, we studied through the 5 elements and the virtual course was perfect for learning, growing and finding a place within the yoga community. I highly recommend Sacred Paths to everyone. I'm very impressed and pleased with my first experience and I'm teaching everyday since the first week or so in the course, so the enthusiasm has not stopped. I'm on fiya!!!  Just like our element. Love it and so grateful!

  • All of the facilitators were there every step of the way, daily live classes on Zoom were welcoming and interactive, many new friends made along the journey! Because it was from home I was able to integrate the teachings into my daily life as we progressed through the content. Now that the live portion is complete there is still time to complete the course content at your own pace (for me just the final assessment), and it is very flexible. All of the live classes are recorded and all content is available to access indefinitely so there is the option to work through all the content again if desired. It was overall a fantastic experience and highly recommend!

  • Sacred Paths Yoga provided me with the teachings, tools and knowledge to expand my own yoga practice. I gained self-confidence as I step into my own authentic and true self. The lessons and teachers provided a wide variety of topics, ideas and perspectives that I look forward to exploring in more depth as I continue my yoga journey. Although the course was online, there was still a wonderful sense of community among my peers. I would highly recommend Sacred Paths Yoga teacher training for those individuals interested in exploring the connection between body, mind and spirit and for those interested in bringing the practice of yoga off the mat and into their daily life.

  • The Sacred Paths Yoga Online 200hr teacher training program was incredible. Lacey & Darin are a husband and wife duo that have surrounded themselves with soulful and knowledgeable teachers to lead the courses. All of the teachers were outstanding guides with so much meaningful content and insight. This was an impactful spiritual journey as well as a physical and metal learning space. I can't say enough good things about this course. The whole time, I was thinking how reasonably priced the course was for the amount of coursework, knowledge, and inner perspective you get out of it. It came at the right time in my life and I am so grateful that I not only completed a yoga teacher training course, but that I took it through Sacred Paths Yoga! I am forever grateful to them and this experience!

All teachers bring in their own voices, viewpoints and expertise; they have in common their love for yoga, their passion to bring it into the world and their commitment to deliver high quality classes. The curriculum offered a great combination of practice and theory, in this way contributing to a solid and strong foundation for aspiring yoga teachers.

  • I was blessed to attend the online 200-hour training which was a life transforming experience. I was guided how to be an inclusive, nurturing, informed yoga teacher and how to explore and cultivate my own spiritual journey. Even though the course was online this did not dampen the experience, I was able to form friendships with my fellow practitioners by attending the immersive live classes and partaking in the Facebook group. Doing the training online allowed me to make my home into a personal spiritual sanctuary and fit the studies in around my day to day life. The curriculum is fresh, extensive, and inspiring. The ancient philosophy of yoga is taught alongside important modern topics such as ethics, trauma informed language and cultural appropriation. As a disabled, plus sized, BIPOC female student I felt extremely safe, comfortable, and included in the training. Modifications and props are included and encouraged in lessons and asanas which further made the course accessible. The teachers on the course are passionate and full of enthusiasm making the lessons engaging and motivating. I completed the course in 40 days which flew by, and I would sign up for a further course no doubt. I feel grateful and honored to have studied at Sacred Paths Yoga.

  • Sacred Paths Yoga is a wonderful school and I can highly recommend it for YTTs but also other courses that they offer. The wealth of knowledge the founders and facilitators have, the way they transmit that knowledge, the breadth of the content of the YTT as well as the way they hold space for the student is amazing. They have put a lot of thought and work in the online version of the YTT, to the point where for example they explain assists and alignment cues so clearly that the feedback I received from my first live student was that my assists were spot-on and super helpful - and that came only from learning it through the videos! The 40 days I got to spend with SPY and all the facilitators was life-changing, and I feel they prepared me the best way possible to be a yoga teacher, being able to offer a safe space and in-depth knowledge to my future students through the wholesome education I received from SPY.

  • The training through Sacred Paths Yoga was excellent, The course content flowed and followed a wave through the elements with spiritual and practical lessons in tune with this flow. It was thorough in its teaching of anatomy, spirituality, shamanism, yoga history and experientially preparing us for teaching. Although the course was online, the intimacy, connection and sense of community was wonderful; I felt like I found my soul tribe. All of the facilitators were knowledgable, supportive and inspiring. I felt rooted in the yogic process when I completed and it brought me in tune with myself and my gifts. What a joy it was to train and to now be part of the Sacred Paths community

  • I came into my training with Sacred Paths Yoga not really sure what to expect. For a few years I had been interested in taking a teacher training course but never had the time or funds, so when I hit a career rut I decided to take the first step to finally putting myself first and found SPY. I never imagined I would gain knowledge in so many different subjects but more surprising than that was how much I learned about myself. It changed how I view my body, my surroundings and current lifestyle, and the earth and her people. I left my training feeling ready to take on what this next chapter offers and fully equipped to help others find fulfillment through yoga as well. I'm already excited for the next time I can join SPY for another training!

  • Sacred Paths Yoga Teacher Training is a great experience any time. However, it was especially powerful at the beginning of the pandemic. When the rest of the world was shutting down, SPY did a hard pivot and created a meaningful and interactive online program. Instead of feeling isolated and alone, they created a community where our group could come together and grow. Hoping to do one of their in person trainings in the future. Darin and Lacey are kind, hard working and amazing people.

  • 'Sacred Paths Yoga guided me on a beautiful journey of self discovery.
    Darren and Lacey were patient, understanding, and always available to support me.  The course was in depth, personalized and connected with my spiritual journey which is exactly what I needed in order to move forward. Everything was very well paced and I was given the time that I needed to complete my personal journey to becoming a certified yoga teacher without judgment or pressure. Through  Sacred Paths I connected with my abilities and the inner strength to succeed that has been dormant within me for so long, and I have no doubt that this will continue with me moving forward.Highly recommended YTT training with a beautiful personalized aspect which goes above and beyond.

  • I can totally recommend Sacred Paths Yoga School. I am beyond grateful for this journey and could not be more happy with this decision. There are no words for describing what I've experienced and learned. I have grown so much on my inner spiritual journey. My attitude towards life, all beings and myself has changed. I see life with different eyes now. I recognize beauty everywhere and I am able to see what is, instead of what was or could be. All the facilitators did such a great job. They supported and encouraged us every time. They embody their own experiences and they truly live what they teach. They hold the energetic space throughout the whole course and they offer a safe space for healing and sharing. They cultivate the energy of wisdom, love and acceptance. They made this journey both: steady and easeful. 🙂 The facilitators guided us along all lessons we had to learn and prepared us in an authentic and professional way for all our assignments we had to teach throughout the course to become a Yoga Teacher. I felt seen, heard and guided all the time, by the facilitators as well as by this wonderful community we created.

  • This was such an amazing school and program! It was actually the first one I came across and felt so drawn to it, and now I see why. The course layout was so thought out and flowed so fluidly. And the teachers are so knowledgeable. I absolutely love the wisdom each teacher brought into the program. Lacey and Darin really put their hearts into this program and it shows.

  • Sacred Paths Yoga was such an amazing experience! It was truly a healing journey. Lacey and Darin, as well as the other facilitators, offered a safe and healing space filled with positive energy and vibrations. The material was taught thoroughly and in a way that could be comprehended easily. They made the online platform feel like it was in person. I felt welcomed and accepted in a way as if I had known the teachers and the students for years. It felt like family. I gained so much more than I ever could have imagined in this training and I am thankful beyond words for the gift that Sacred Paths offered to me. I have and will continue to recommend Sacred Paths Yoga as the go to place to receive YTT.

  • I am very grateful I am for this program. It has given me more faith in myself and made me realize what I really want to do. Before this program, I would have never thought I could open my own business but now my goal is to open a health & wellness business focusing on a holistic approach to nutrition and overall health. And of course, I will be offering yoga and pilates classes. I am very happy with my growth and the knowledge I have gained from the program. I really did not want to do yoga online, I had plans to do my 200hrs in the Netherlands and had everything including my flights place. However, it just did not feel right. I can not explain it, but deep inside I know it was not for me. That changed when I came across Sacred Paths website, something about the way I felt while navigating the site made me feel safe. I didn't think doing a ytt online would be practical or eye-opening but this program was beyond. Thank you so much for allowing me to have this incredible experience!

This 200hr Yoga Teacher Training program is open to practitioners of all levels and abilities, from beginner to advanced. We offer modifications and variations of the poses so you can cultivate a practice that fits your needs and so that you can teach classes that are accessible to all populations. We encourage you to establish your own personal yoga practice by attending classes or workshops leading up to the program.

Prior to the training, we recommend that students practice along with our online videos several times per weeks to prepare the body and mind for the journey ahead. We will break down these sequences in depth during the course so it is advised to become familiar with them.

We invite you to set intention, with an open heart and mind, to fully commit to and embrace the yogic lifestyle during your training and beyond, to let go of expectations and to fully surrender to the experience.

This course is not only developed for those who are called to become yoga teachers, but also for those who have intention to deepen their own practice and knowledge, to become embodied yoga practitioners, to step into a spiritual journey of soul and to heal, reveal and awaken.

Sacred Paths is for the spiritual seeker, the worldwide traveler, the inspired and the adventurous yogi
