 2 Days Until Our 23rd 200-Hour Teacher Training Term Starts!


Write us at info@avalonyoga.com if you want to enroll early in our next term, which starts in October. We sell out early every term and must turn many students away. Click here or on the poster below for information on one of the only university-level (and strictly science-based) Yoga Teachers Training Programs in the world.

Who are Avalon Teacher Training students? A few examples from the new term: A developmental geneticist from Beijing, now at Stanford; two exchange students from Moscow; a much published and world-known Stanford immunologist and another molecular biologist; two lawyers and a CPA looking to enrich their lives; two graduates of  conventional Teacher Training Programs now looking for rigorous world-class training; and other students (from at least ten countries!) equally interesting. The exceptional quality and diversity of our students is one key to Avalon's growing international reputation.

At Avalon All 'Community Classes'
Are Free - No Strings Attached!

Community, from the Latin communis,
"Common, public, general, shared by all"

Sharing with the entire community is central to Avalon's values. We take the progressive humanistic goals of yoga seriously.

In line with those values, each week throughout the year we offer a wide
range of Free Classes to Cancer Patients and their families (two special classes each week), to Seniors and anyone recovering from injuries, to Kids age 7+, to Teenagers, and to the General Public - with no strings attached.

Our weekly free classes often draw 20+ students, and they  keep growing in size and getting better month after month.

Saturday Night at Avalon!

After the last class ends at 7:45 pm, we're always happy to keep Avalon's doors open on Saturday nights for free yoga practice, informal socializing, or anything else creative that anyone wants to do until the last person leaves.

We have a long series of FREE community events planned in that slot in 2014. When we don't have an event scheduled, we are always ready to donate our space for any event in that slot that reflects the progressive political, humanistic, and artistic values of the Studio.

Do you have a creative idea about how to use Avalon on Saturday nights? If you do, stop by and talk to us at the desk, or write us here.
