Utah Yoga Teacher Training
Welcome to Yoga Assets - a yoga teacher training program that will powerfully enhance your personal yoga practice and provide you with the tools you need to become a confident and successful yoga teacher.
If you're reading this page, you're likely researching yoga teacher training programs and looking for one that best suits your needs.
Maybe you're unsure if a yoga teacher training program is right for you at all. You're just interested in gaining a deeper understanding of yoga, but have no intention of teaching.
Either way, you are welcome to join in our trainings.
The late American author and poet Maya Angelou once said "We are all teachers whether we know it or not".
When you're living a life of intention, peace, gratitude and personal power - people can't help but to notice. You become a positive influence on those around you. You become a teaching presence in the lives of others by your very actions...by the life you live.
Intentional or not - you are a teacher.
First and foremost, it's about developing your personal yoga practice. It's about going beyond the studio experience and developing a personal philosophy as to "what yoga is" for you.
By exploring the foundations and philosophies of yoga universally, you will become open to the possibilities of how yoga can serve you in living your best life.
The core premise of the work we do at Yoga Assets is to empower you to Teach Yoga Everywhere. No matter the environment; one person or one-hundred; yoga studio or fitness center; workplace or church; rich or poor; incarcerated or educated...it makes no difference.
Upon completion of our 200-hour Yoga Alliance accredited program, you will have the tools and the foundation you need to confidently share your yoga practice any place you want - with anyone you want.
What separates Yoga Assets from the traditional studio environment is that we want you to begin sharing your yoga practice sooner rather than later.
German author and philosopher Johann Wolfgang von Goethe is credited with many wise observations regarding human potential. He said "Treat people as if they were what they ought to be and you help them become what they are capable of becoming."
Within the Yoga Assets community, you are considered a teacher from day one. You are a teacher in development. You are at the beginning of ongoing process of learning, discovering and sharing your yoga practice.
Yoga Assets is a transformational yoga teacher training program. We actively engage students in developing knowledge, skills, critical thinking and communication techniques. We expect our students to be in action, actively practicing their new skills and sharing their knowledge as the curriculum progresses.
The late author Stephen Covey broke it down like this:
How we learn and retain

Upon completing your 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training requirements, you will receive your teacher certification that will be recognized by Yoga Alliance.

The term yoga has been used for several thousand years. But the last 50-years has brought more diversity and interpretation than ever before. You could even say that the last decade has accelerated the modern interpretations of yoga to be hardly recognizable in light of its traditional roots.
It is here, in the evolving nature and dynamic traditions of yoga that you will find the uniqueness of this course led by Denise Druce. Denise will expose you to this diversity and help you interpret their meaning and purpose. She'll help you understand their common thread and identify where paths diverge.
Denise served as the head of Yoga Teacher Training at the University of Utah and was a member of the faculty for Exercise and Sport Science for 15-years, teaching students, fitness instructors and athletes.
