Our 2023 300 HR Teacher Training will run from January 8-June 30. Enrollment closes on January 2, 2023.
This course uses a variety of class structures and teaching throughout the week to educate and apply course material. Students will meet with their designated mentor and small group once a week. These meetings will cover sections of the manual, posture review and adjustments, sequencing, group projects and special topics. Each group will work together throughout the duration of the training to create and complete a Karma Project to benefit the local community. Additionally, each student will complete a Final Project of their choice designed to choose and prepare a specialty to advance your teaching and career path.
During the week all three mentor groups will meet together on Wednesday evenings for philosophy and practical study led by assorted faculty. These will occur on zoom or in person at our La Cienega Plaza (LCP) location. On Thursday evenings the entire group will meet to practice large group teaching with the lead mentors at the LCP studio.

Originally from Iowa, Laura began her yoga journey in her home city, Ames, in 2006. Laura’s yoga practice began with physical curiosity, injury management, and a love for deep breaths. As the practice deepened, she found the mental clarity, spiritual, and emotional growth that grounded her into developing a life long love for yoga. After receiving a BFA from the University of Illinois, Laura moved to Los Angeles and began her yoga teacher trainings. She received her 200 hour certification from Yogaworks in 2014, and continued her teaching education to receive her 300 hours through Yogaworks in 2016. After teaching public and private classes around Los Angeles for 8 years, Laura found a home at Red Diamond Yoga. Laura teaches yoga to help each practitioner find balance from the inside out. She enjoys teaching bi-annual Yin Yoga Teacher Trainings and 200 and 300hr Trainings at Red Diamond. When not in the practice room, you can find Laura experimenting in the kitchen, day dreaming about plants, and cuddling with her puppy Kiwi.

Sara became devoted to yoga on a trip to India in 2008. The teachings of the Guru from Sri Ved Niketan Ashram in Rishikesh led her to a new level of peace she’d never known before. When she returned to the states she began practicing at Yoga to the People in San Francisco and did her first 200hr there. She taught for YTTP in New York and ended up training with Sri Dharma Mittra for her 500hr certification in 2012. Dharmas Life of a Yogi training deepened her understanding of and commitment to yoga. Since Dharma’s she’s done another 500 hours of certified training. Through it all the practice of yoga has continued to be a life raft in the sea of uncertainty and changing currents. A life raft of remembering that we are the soul, the witness. When she teaches, Sara aims to guide her students into a closer relationship with their bodies, breath, minds and ultimately the human birthright of deep inner peace.
