Training Space

We limit the space in each training program, so that you receive the personal and academic care needed for your best outcome.  To maintain a personal relationship between the trainer and trainee, as well as trainee to trainee, Big Rock Yoga Teacher Training is limited to a total of 12-15.  We believe that this provides an in depth relationship with the trainer and particpants needed for the most powerful experience, learning, and transformation. Enrollment for 2019 is OPEN NOW 

Style of Training

The  Big Rock Yoga Teacher Training is both a traditional and non traditional yoga program designed to empower you both on your mat and in your life. While deeply rooted in the philosophy of traditional yoga, our program is demystified to give you access to a full transformation of body, mind, and soul. And, from this self discovery you will have the tools to empower others on their mat and in their life. We strive to teach, lead, and inspire you to realize a life that consists of what is most important to you! 

" I wasn't sure what to expect when I signed up for teacher training, but what I received was far more than I could have ever imagined.  Teacher training allowed me to see the possibilities that life has to offer, that being vulnerable is ok, but most of all it taught me that allowing yourself to feel is a miraculous and healing process.  I am truly grateful and blessed to have this experience." ~Jessica O., Russellville, AR

"Big Rock Yoga Teacher Training is so much more than just curriculum and yoga instruction. Wendy Cook is masterful in guiding students through a holistic journey of self-exploration and discovery. I particularly enjoyed the writings and discussions, where we regularly evaluated our beliefs and opinions in an objective, non-judgmental format. The yoga practice on our mats mirrored this practice of acceptance for ourselves and others.I am now eager to share my yoga knowledge with my students while being an example of the peaceful life that can be had by truly living in the present." ~ Illene "Gogo" S., Batesville, AR
