Yoga Students and Teacher Trainers Adjusting Yoga Posture

Top 9 Reasons our Teacher Training is Super Special

9 Reasons our Teacher Training is Super Special
(we tried to keep it to just 5, but couldn't...)

1. Real Skills- Our students graduate ready to take the seat of the teacher. Cambio ytt gives you all the tools you need to step into teaching a safe, well-sequenced, and inspiring class.
2. Support- Cambio faculty and teachers provide consistent and supportive mentorship. You are never alone on your teacher training journey - you are supported by an expansive community of experienced and caring teachers who are truly invested in your growth, plus you have a personal mentor.
3. Experienced Faculty- We’ve led 23 trainings…not to mention extended teacher training, which has been ongoing since 2013! We understand that teaching students to teach is a whole other thing than guiding yoga classes. Our lead teachers have been teaching since at least 2011 and have been a part of faculty since at least 2013. All YTT teachers must successfully complete extensive internship programs.
4. Designed for the Learner- Cambio owner and YTT director, Amber, has her masters in teaching, so this training is designed for the learner. Don't expect boring lectures! Our curriculum utilizes a wide variety of techniques to facilitate interaction and discussion, as well as to address different learning styles.
5. Accessibility- One of Cambio's guiding principles is that yoga should be accessible to all. In that spirit, our teacher trainings are welcoming and accessible to anyone with a sincere desire to grow. Our students - and teachers - come from many different walks of life and yoga backgrounds, and that diversity is part of the richness of our community.
6. Community- Cambio ytt students are immersed in a culture of mutual support and friendship. Whether you are a long-time yoga practitioner or brand-new to the practice, your sangha will help you through the challenges and celebrate your successes.
7. More than Poses- While learning a ton about alignment and the purpose of poses, our students also learn about other aspects of yoga through experiential workshops like chakra nights and book club.
8. Real class experiential learning- We put our trainees in our actual classes to get experience during training. It’s not as scary as it sounds and the pay off is huge in both practical experience and confidence!
9. Insight into Special Considerations - Our trainees gain understanding about how to work with beginners, adaptive, and prenatal students.

New Yoga Teacher

Finding Your Way as a New Yoga Teacher by Nikki Arnone

This week on YLP guest blogger and resident Cambio teacher Nikki Arnone shares some insights and advice for new teachers. I can say when I first began my teacher training I was unsure of my own ability as a teacher and my self-doubt far exceeded my confidence but as I have seen time and time again leading teacher trainings, when one overcomes these fears they find that teaching right from where they are, not from where they would like to be, will be of service to someone somewhere right where they are. So please enjoy Nikki's deeper reflections on the trials and tribulations that come along with the terrain and as always if you would like to guest blog for YLP contact Austin at This email address is being protected from spambots.

A Blog on Love by Suzanne Mariska

What’s the first thing you think of when you hear the word “love”?

What if you think about it for a few moments more? Do you think of different things? People, places, ideas, emotions, activities, spiritual beliefs, symbols, actions?

Love is many things.

Yoga Living project Presents: On Shanti Shanti's Cold Depression Workshop from Friday, July 15 by Renee Nicole Rudolph

This week guest writer and Cambio instructor Renee Nicole Rudolph shares her words on our recent visit from one of our favorite yoga teachers.

On Shanti Shanti's Cold Depression Workshop from Friday, July 15


On Friday, I attended the Overcoming Cold Depression: Penetrate the Silence of the Soul Workshop, presented by Dr. Shanti Shanti Kaur Khalsa and hosted at Cambio Yoga and what an honor it was. For years I suffered from cold depression. I was tired, angry, frustrated, and the level of my anxiety was indescribable. Sure, I knew I was probably depressed and sure, I really thought anxiety was to be expected--better get used to it I often told myself.

Yoga is a way of life and should be accessible to all.


Community is important. Everyone is a valuable member and we are here to serve our community.


Everyone is perfect just as they are. Everyone has their own path and is at a different point in life.


From physical abilities to beliefs, everyone is at the right place at the right time.
