$1,999 for a 10-week yoga teacher training course ($3,000 value)
The 200-hour training course—designed for both aspiring teachers and students seeking to deepen their practice—runs from February 27 to May 11. Training focuses on Vinyasa yoga, though it also includes introductions to styles such as Ashtanga, Kundalini, Iyengar, Bikram yoga, and yoga for kids. Lectures are spiritually influenced and incorporate teachings on yoga sequencing, posture dissections, anatomy, and philosophy. Students also get the opportunity to teach a yoga class at Zen Yoga Garage.
Zen Yoga Garage
Zen Yoga Garage is about more than just a sweaty yoga workout. It's about reminding you to be present in the moment, whether that moment involves a tricky stretch or a daily social interaction. The studio's experienced registered yoga teachers offer fun, casual classes that link yoga moves with the steps of ballet or the exercises of boot camp. The Hot Buddha class is especially popular among returning students, who rave about the detoxifying effects of stretching in a room heated up to 105 degrees. For a more relaxing experience, head to one of the two onsite massage rooms, where zen-like therapists get rid of knots by rubbing them or thinking at them really hard.
