200HR Teacher Training

Taos, NM | July 2024

Lead by Erin Kelly & Alexis Yauch with Stevi Gongora & Anthony Difiglio


Join the Authentic Movements team for a 20 day, 21 night 200-HR Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) in the magical mountains of Taos, New Mexico and all the yoga one could ask for at Hyperslow Retreat Center.

This training will be led by head teachers, Erin Kelly & Alexis Yauch.

They will be joined by, Anthony Difiglio (strength coach and meditation) and  Stevi Gongora (anatomy & creative sequencing).

An intimate and community building experience, this YTT is the perfect setting for those wishing to start their yoga teaching experience, as well as those looking to revive their practice or delve deeper into their teaching and asana. And remember, teacher training isn’t only for those looking to teach! It’s also a great opportunity to hone your personal practice and body awareness.

Come flow with us as we plant seeds, tend to our gardens, and work our way into the complex, but rewarding world of yoga. Upon completion, you will be able to register as an RYT-200 with the Yoga Alliance, and start your journey as a yoga teacher, if you so choose. Days will be full, but gratifying, and what better place to immerse yourself with the ancient healing properties of this magnificent land surrounding you?

The 19 day, in-person intensive constitutes 165 of 200HRs for your Foundational Yoga Teacher Training.

Based on our extensive experience, we believe that certain content is best delivered before and after our in-person gathering. We’ve thoughtfully gathered approximately 10-15HRs of preparatory work in advance, reserving the remaining content for your post-Taos journey.

Once the in-person intensive comes to an end, you’ll carry the communal inspiration home with you as you work through a few guided assignments to apply and cement the teachings to your personal needs and style.

Upon completion of the assignments, passing the final exam, and acceptably demonstrating an understanding of the training pillars through your full practicum, you’ll be awarded your 200HR Yoga Teacher Training Certificate that can be registered with Yoga Alliance if you wish.

Once your application is accepted and your spot secured, expect pre-work package and future training details on January 15th, 2024. If you’re accepted after this date, you’ll receive your pre-work package via email within five business days of confirming your registration and deposit.

We are eagerly looking forward to the opportunity to work together on this journey and cannot wait to welcome you to our community!


This training is open to ALL-LEVELS, however some proficiency in yoga (asana) practice is helpful in order to make the most of your time with us. We will be spending quite a lot of time on the mat, and discussing/practicing teaching, so we suggest at least one year of regular yoga practice for all applicants. Not sure if you’re the right fit? Email us!

    Note: This training is a sober event. We ask that all attendees refrain from drinking or drug usage (including marijuana) during the full course of the training dates.
