Did you know that Cloud Nine Yoga has been an RYS (Registered Yoga School) with Yoga Alliance since 2002? That is RIGHT! We have over 25 years of specializing in one thing: Training Yoga Teachers. It has been our focus and we are known worldwide for it. Many studios and yoga schools have followed in our footsteps – and many others have consulted with us to build their curriculum based on our system.

Train with the founder of Cloud Nine Yoga School, Erika Faith Calig, E-RYT 500, our Lead Instructor with 30 years teaching experience!

What is IMMERSION training? It is time to focus and immerse yourself in Yoga – outside your everyday common activities. Most of us need to disconnect so we can regenerate, reboot, and change ourselves. Several days of devoted Yoga practice, workshops, and nature classrooms can initiate beautiful shifts for us on the inside. A concentrated effort to learn amongst a community with an expert teacher is priceless in obtaining new levels of personal mastery and self-discovery. Our core curriculum – whether it is workshops, a 200 RYT certification course, or Advanced Training for existing teachers – is designed to bring the techniques, teachings, philosophy, and practices straight into your heart and soul. Immersions condense learning into a compact amount of time, provide a supportive environment for the retention of information, and plenty of space to integrate and absorb what you take in. Training directly with a Lead Trainer who has decades of experience is powerful; yet even more so when they are kind, wise, respectful, and full of integrity. We sprinkle in some really fun, light-hearted group adventuring (such as hiking and/or other optional outdoor activities) throughout our days together to nourish the kid in all of us. Yoga Immersions with Cloud Nine Yoga School are a sacred time-out-of-time to fill your cup until it runs over! It’s a space to leave behind the routines of everyday life to focus on spiritual renewal, deepen your knowledge of yoga practices, and do the personal healing you need in an inviting community setting.

We have at least TWO 200-hr Yoga Teacher Training Immersions scheduled per year.

We also have SEVERAL 300-hr Retreats or Workshop Series Immersions per year.

We love to host WORKSHOP Immersions that are open to all practitioners.

Most immersions are on the beautiful island of Kauai, but we also run our programs in Hawaii, California, Iowa, Nevada, Colorado, and New Mexico!
