Centered City Yoga, established in 2002 by D'ana Baptiste, is the fruition of a dream. D'ana was deeply inspired to create a place where people could practice yoga together in a friendly, clean, fun and welcoming atmosphere. The studio is often likened to that famous T.V. "hangout" where everybody know your name, sans Norm (and the beer, of course.) It's a place where friends meet, where everyone feels included, and where families do yoga together. As soon as you enter the doors of CCY, you will feel like you have found a sane and safe corner of the world.
Centered City Yoga is well known for it's incredibly talented, professional, and devoted (both to yoga and to the clientele) teachers, none of whom take themselves too seriously. They all genuinely love teaching yoga, but don't take their identity from teaching. Centered City Yoga instructors are first and foremost "regular people.." dads and moms, musicians and mechanics, doctors and dancers, artists and attorneys. They teach yoga not to define their lives, but because they have seen the good it can do in their busy and full lives, and hope to share those benefits with you.

Then you'll learn how to sequence a class and deliver it confidently. Upon completion you will be certified at the 200 hour teacher level.

500 Hour Training $3,900
Those of you who want to discover your authenticity, your unique message, and your innate intelligence will love this training. Of course you'll learn how to teach the poses; however the emphasis of these extra 500 hours will be on the deeper, more esoteric aspects of yoga, and how to infuse each class you teach with these deeper practices. The yoga sutras will serve as the backdrop for your studies, so the ultimate intention of this 500 hour program is to connect with your Self, your classes, and ultimately the Grace inherent in all beings. Your sessions will help excavate your own potential, as well as teach you how to bring to light the potential in others. Be prepared to study not only the poses, but more importantly Union (which is the true meaning of Yoga.) Upon completion you will be certified at the 500 hour, yoga leadership level.

is an in-depth look at how yoga supports and may speed up the healing process, and how you (as the yoga therapist and teacher) may contribute to the increased well-being of each of your clients. The emphasis of these specialized 1000 hours will be on the more therapeutic gifts of yoga. You will discover not only ways to address the physical body (with adaptations, specific sequencing, etc) but also ways the yoga poses and deeper practices can address the emotional and mental bodies. Special attention will be placed on working one-on-one with private clients; however this information is also very helpful for those of you teaching in the group setting. The ultimate intention of this 1000 hour program is to further your own journey of rediscovery, learn how to support others in their journey, and contribute to raising the vibration of your community. Be prepared to experience the purest form of yoga-our intention to resonate at our highest vibration together.
