program goals

This training will prepare and certify you to:

  • Teach inspiring, breath-centered vinyasa yoga group classes to a wide variety of clientele, from beginners to advanced, in many different environments (studio, corporate, gym)
  • Create private yoga sessions with awareness around specific needs, injuries, conditions, and environments
  • Have a basic understanding of and ability to teach a Yin yoga class
  • Have a working knowledge of the most common issues presented in students today (low back, neck, feet/knee/hip, pregnancy, stress, etc.) and how to work with and address these conditions in a compassionate and therapeutic manner
  • Offer informed, compassionate, and instructive hands-on assists and adjustments
  • Have a solid understanding of anatomy and physiology in yoga and daily life
  • Study the breath and the mind and the relationship between the two to deepen your personal meditation and pranayama practices, and from this knowing, teach
  • Utilize yoga philosophy to build compelling, inspiring yoga classes and use it as a tool for personal growth
  • Hold space for your continued personal expansion and the personal transformation of others


Prepare for this experience by resting, taking care of yourself, practicing regularly, slowing down a bit if possible and addressing all obligations and outside commitments before you arrive. There is a lot of material to cover in 3 weeks. Get started on reading assignments and start building a journaling practice. You will be asked to keep a journal during the course. You can start with as little as 5 minutes a day. Just get in the habit of free writing and letting whatever is inside you come out on the page.

Reading and practice assignments, as well as a teaching demo and final in-person evaluation (on the final day or days or remotely) will round out the program. Karma (service) hours will be required after the program. There will be occasional assignments and you can miss no more than 4 individual sessions during the training.

By the end of this program, you will be a new person. Expect to leave relaxed, physically stronger, emotionally and mentally balanced, and re-invigorated, with a clear vision on how to live your best life and shine your light into the world.


You will need the following books for the program. Prepare by familiarizing yourself with them in advance of the program start. Bring them to the training with you.


In a few words, Lola was truly an amazing teacher, and I felt that from the beginning. She was patient, wise, extremely intelligent but also caring and lovely. She held space for all of us in a unique way and taught each one of us how to grow. I seriously could not have imagined a better experience.
Thank you so much for this experience, not only was Lola amazing but Anamaya holds a special place in my heart. I hope to go back there soon and hopefully one day teach there all I have learned in this yoga journey, where both Lola and Anamaya have such special meaning.

Lola is a phenomenal teacher who truly knows how to meet you where you are regardless of your experience. She creates space for both the novice and experienced student to make the class as challenging as they like. After studying with Lola, I feel much more comfortable assessing what I want out of a yoga class and a yoga instructor. She has set my bar quite high and for that I thank her deeply. It’s helped me understand what it means to truly say you are a yoga teacher. THANK YOU LOLA ;)

If you seek a yoga teacher who can properly teach you the asanas with gentleness, attention to detail, patience and constant encouragement, then you will love Lola Rephann. Lola is a gifted teacher. She has introduced me to my body in a way I never knew possible. I wanted a spiritual teacher who could introduce me to the essence, the fullness, of yoga, not the fancy world that yoga has become in some circles. I found her. Lola has helped me to enter the spiritual life through my physical body.

Lola is obviously very seasoned, well educated in yoga, and understands that each of her students is on their own journey.
