November 21-28, 2023


This course curriculum is created by our lead teachers and founder, Kayla Nielsen (1,000 hour RYT). And Parham Neal-Pishko (RYT 500).

The Metamorphosis is a hybrid model 200-hour YTT that provides 46 hours of online content, plus 8 days of in-person training. You can expect to enter a student and leave a teacher with an intensive curriculum focused on foundational principles of sequencing, cueing, anatomy, philosophy, and the craft of teaching an anxiety practice in a modern world.



Our mission is to elevate the quality of teaching across the world, in an effort to spread the practice of yoga in a safe, effective, and accessible way.

This experience will provide 200 hours of intensive training, practice, and self-practice. We are accepting a maximum of only 16 students to ensure everyone has ample practice teaching time, feedback, and assistance with all of our teachers.

This course is registered with Yoga Alliance and will provide certified accredited hours upon completion. Please note you will only receive the online modules, course handbook, and coursework once you pay for the YTT in full.

10% of the proceeds from this retreat will be donated to our Sponsorship Program. Not only will you be investing in a life-changing experience for yourself in a beautiful location; but you will also help provide this same meaningful experience to those who might not otherwise be able to afford it, as well.
