Why choose Spanda® Yoga Teacher Training?


We write the resources other people use. Our faculty is comprised of experts skilled in sharing their depth of knowledge. Dr. Schmitt's doctorate is in education; she's  been teaching yoga for over 40 years and training teachers to do the same for over a decade.

Our lead trainers have taught thousands of hours of classes and workshops to all sorts of populations. Our faculty clinicians, MDs, PTs, OTs, RNs, Dipl. Acs, E-RYT500s, are senior practitioners in their respective fields.



We're the opposite of a diploma mill. We get to know you, your aspirations, your goals. We're here to support your learning with appropriate resources and experiences that grow your knowledge and skills in things that interest you.

With us, you won’t need to compare apples and oranges like in programs that stitch together incongruent and inaccurate made-up yoga. Spanda® Yoga is rooted in a time-proven yoga lineage of systematic practice handed down over thousands of years.



We’ll guide your artistry in designing safe effective applications of yoga through whatever formats you choose. You can teach vinyasa flows, traditional classes, specialty populations, creative fusions . . . your imagination is the only limit.
