Welcome to The Yoga Underground

The Yoga Underground is Utah’s only Taṇhā Yoga studio. Taṇhā Yoga first developed with deep Ashtanga roots, but has grown to include expressive and creative Tantric flowers. Our classes combine the poses and fluid transitions of Ashtanga with the expansiveness, soul-searching, and grace inherent in Tantra. Taṇhā means “having a thirst for living,” and our classes are designed to ignite creative self-expression, leaving you feeling strong, light-hearted, open-minded and optimistic. TYU was founded in 2010 to further spread the vision of the late and beloved Larry Schultz, Bad Man of Ashtanga; Larry’s playful and fun-loving attitude toward yoga inspired TYU owner Brittany Andrews to open her studio with the goal to revolutionize the human hearts of Utah County, one downward dog at a time.

Praise From TYU Teacher Training Alumni

Alexandra

The teachers are amazing, the classes are glorious, and they’re always doing something fun. If you want to do yoga or already practice a lot go here. Seriously. You won’t regret it.

Rosa

My favorite part was the teacher, Brittany. Thanks to her I feel comfortable to express myself just like I am, with no judgment or feeling awkward because I don’t fit in somebody else perspective. I mean when people introduce themselves all have a mask to protect their insecurities. To not look vulnerable, so don’t get hurt. So Brittany Andrews create the space to feel comfortable with your self and you don’t need masks, you are in a safe respectful environment and are not at risk to be hurt.

Peter

I love YTT because it helped me understand how I was benefiting from my yoga practice. Before my YTT the feelings of well-being kept me coming back to TYU and practicing. Now I have an increased understanding of where those feelings come from and I’m capable of creating that environment and experience for those I teach. I’m confident that the course can and does work for all types of yogis — whether they are new or seasoned there is a lot to learn in the material and lots of opportunities to apply those teachings.

Maisie

My favorite thing about YTT at TYU was making new friends on my very first day!! As soon as I arrived I felt so welcomed — but we were all so quiet at first which I think is hilarious because by the end you couldn’t get us to stop talking! We all worked really well as a team, which made the learning environment very easy and natural. I feel like we were able to gain a lot of information in a such a short period of time. Best of all this training really taught me how to be one with myself, which is kind of what it’s all about. I couldn’t imagine doing my training anywhere else.

India

My YTT was INCREDIBLE! I learned a lot about yoga, (obviously) but I also learned a lot about myself and my love for this practice. I walked away with a smile on my face, because I knew that what I learned was only a little bit of so much more that I could learn. My YTT was the best thing I could’ve ever done for myself and I highly recommend it to people who may be thinking about going down that path. Thank you Brittany for being such a positive, gracious, funny soul in my yoga journey and for helping me grow more genuinely as a person.

Krista

My favorite thing about my YTT experience through TYU was the inclusion and focus on balance of core skills necessary to realize the full benefits of a regular yoga practice that can be tailored to fit individual needs. I felt the material covered was relevant and current and loved learning and discussing origin and history as well as techniques and benefits of physical, mental, and spiritual yoga. I feel that the training provided the tools necessary for application of the lessons learned and direction for continued learning and growth.

Megan

I recommend yoga teacher training to everyone whether they are super into yoga or not because my experience was life changing! Not only did I expand my yoga knowledge but I expanded myself as a person. The Yoga Underground has a culture of leaving people better than they found them. In the yoga teacher training that philosophy and experience is intensified to such a beautiful level. I have become a better person because of my training and learned so much from the experience. The things you will learn are so valuable that you don’t want to pass up the opportunity. You don’t have to be at any certain level to do it. It’s something you will not want to miss out on.

Jamie

200 hr YTT training at The Yoga Underground was such a fantastic experience! I loved yoga before I attended, I thought it would be fun to learn more about it and how to teach a class. I didn’t realize how much I would enjoy the class and the energy Brittany brings to it. The class not only met my expectations but has opened my mind to so many possibilities of being apart of the Yoga teacher world. I am so excited to continue this journey.

Erika

Yoga Teacher Training at The Yoga Underground was life-changing! I looked forward to it everyday and didn’t want it to ever end. Not only did it strengthen my own physical practice and my ability to teach, but I found that my relationships were strengthened and I had more direction and clarity everyday. I loved Stephen Nibley’s meditation classes and have had many opportunities open up to me since applying the things I learned from him. I can’t recommend YTT at TYU enough! It was completely transformative-emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.

Jocelyn

Yoga teacher training at the yoga underground was a most inspiring yet natural experience. In learning how to care for others as a yoga instructor, it seems I’ve also learned how to care for myself. The tools I’ve gleaned from this training are invaluable to me as a future instructor, a caring friend, a healer, and a human being. Teacher training has blessed my life and I’m so glad I choose TYU. Seriously though, it rocked. And rolled. The knowledge gained was perfect in creating a solid base to which we could mold our classes in our own individual way, in a safe, constructive environment. I’d do it again in a heartbeat.

Holly

Certifying with The Yoga Underground was truly a beautiful experience. Going into the process I worried if I would be ready to teach successfully in such a short 5 week time period. I finished this program not only capable but with ability and excitement to continue on my journey. The teacher Brittany brought professionalism, fun, and an abundant amount of passion and connection. This is a fantastic opportunity for everyone.

Christian

Teacher training at Yoga Underground was amazing. It did wonders for my personal practice and understanding of yoga, and it helped me learn to be a better teacher. Brittany is an amazing instructor. She is knowledgeable and passionate and caring, and I feel blessed to have had the chance to learn from her and become her friend. Teacher training was a beautiful, transformative experience, and I am profoundly grateful to have taken part in it.

Amber

YTT at the yoga underground is by far the best place a person could go to deepen his or her personal practice or become certified.. Or both! there is a balance between learning the physical practice and the ideas/origin of yoga that creates a great foundation to continue learning from. By the end of YTT, I felt excited and ready to teach classes and confident that I was trained well enough to know what I’m doing. And the place just has great vibes. 🙂

Carson

Last summer I did yoga teacher training with Brittany at the Yoga Underground and it was one of the best months of my life. I learned so much, not only about yoga, but about life and myself. I went into teacher training not knowing for sure if I really wanted to teach or if it would just be a way for me to improve my practice. Well, my practice inevitably improved, but I also found a LOVE for teaching and spreading the happiness, peace, and physical and mental strength (that comes from yoga) with others. Brittany is one of the most amazing people and teachers that you will ever meet with the biggest heart. She will provide you with the knowledge, confidence, and strength that you need to vastly in improve your yoga practice, as well as your ability to spread all that awesomeness to others through teaching. Your life will absolutely improve by doing yoga teacher training at the Yoga Underground. Definitely recommend it!

Hilary

I would recommend the training to anyone. It was more than I expected in multiple ways – I came away feeling confident in the teaching foundation I had received and also felt like I just learned so much about life and myself and others. It was so fun and truly life changing and so so worth the investment!

Alex

I signed up with the yoga underground to do my teacher training because of the comfort I received taking classes there. Brittany goes above and beyond to make sure you feel loved, important, and like part of the Yoga Underground family. I graduated with such a large understanding of yoga and an even bigger understanding of myself. I would highly recommend this program to anyone, even if you aren’t looking to teach. You will not be disappointed.

Michelle

My favorite thing about the training at the Yoga Underground was how flexible Brittany is about things. I had a work event that made me have to miss a week of the training, and she was so accommodating and allowed me to make it up, and that’s how she always was about everything. She didn’t stress about formalities or strict rules–she just wanted to make sure you learned what you specifically needed to be the best teacher you could be.

Beth

Obviously, if you’re willing to pay the tuition price for YTT, you’ve already decided that the certification you’ll get will be worth the money you’re investing. I came to that conclusion when I enrolled, and then was SO SUPRISED by how much more YTT benefited my entire life. I feel like YTT should be re-named, “How to Win at Life.” Not only was I given instruction, resources and opportunities to learn how to become a competent yoga instructor, I also gained an entire set of skills and understanding for how to up-level my life by about 10 notches. In addition, the studio fosters a welcome and inclusive environment and I gained important friendships and connections that are very important to me.

Marianne

YTT was so many good things all squished into 5 short weeks. I reached so many of my physical goals with my personal practice and reached spiritual goals I didn’t even know I had. I got not only a greater love of yoga but a greater love of those around me and myself. Thank you Brittany for the life changing experience!

Chongsuk

I loved 200 YTT so much!!!!! It was great to learn about lots of adjustments and right poses. I have been doing wrong whole time on some poses!! lol. It was amazing time to learn and grow in Yoga. It seemed busy but at the same time it was so relaxing. Thank you so much!! You are a great teacher!!

Ashley

200 hr YTT training was so much more than I expected. I was humbled and grew so much as a person both on and off the mat. I love how Brittany teaches because yoga is about so much more than just your body. She challenges your thought process so you become closer to self love and acceptance. Through mindful movement you learn how to take the lessons you learn within her class and apply them in all you do. My group of ladies were amazing and taking this course was the best decision I could make for myself.

Noel

Honestly, getting this certification has changed my outlook on life and how I want to be as an
individual. When I signed up for certification, I thought I would just learn how to teach classes, which I was so excited about! However, I’ve learned more about yoga, the world, and myself than I could have ever imagined! I wish everyone could have the opportunity to go through Brittany’s certification process. I truly believe the world would be a better place for it!

On top of all of the amazing things I learned, I’m proud to say I’m leaving training feeling very confident in my abilities to teach a class and help others live more mindful lifestyles. Plus it was so fun!! I definitely want to get my 300-hr through TYU!! Loved every minute of it!

Maddie

When I first saw the rave reviews for the YTT at the Underground, I was skeptical about
how anything could possibly be that awesome. However, it turned out to be as awesome as
promised and more. Brittany is an incredible teacher who cares so much about all of her students and helping them become the best they can be, both inside and outside of the yoga studio. I learned a lot about yoga, but perhaps even more about myself. The training helped me realize my authentic self, and it taught me how I can use my strengths to benefit other people as I teach.

Kaydren

My favorite thing about this whole experience was how much trust and support I felt from you, Brittany, and the women in our group. It was an environment where I could express myself and grow. Sometimes when you asked us to do something I would think “there is no way I can do that.” Or, “this is going to turn out so bad!” and then after we did it I would feel so awesome! The feedback was so helpful, and I always felt so grateful that you even believed I could do that in the first place! By the end of the training, I had a clear vision of what direction I wanted to go, how I can continue to improve, and what some of my strengths are.

Natalie

Honestly literally every day was my favorite, I am not kidding Brittney! Off the top of my head sitting here typing this, one of my favorite parts was when Alex came in and analyzed out personalities, it was so interesting to hear his point of view on all of that. Being someone who is already obsessed with astrology and thinking about why people are the way they are, it was so interesting to hear a different point of view on how people are the way they are and why some people don’t get along, or why some people have so much anxiety! Also, doing so much yoga led by you was amazing, the consistent practicing has made me more flexible and all around better at yoga and I am very thankful for that!

Praise From TYU Teacher Training Alumni

Amelia

I had my 200-hour training on my list of goals for years, and it only took me a few moments at the Yoga Underground to realize that this was where I wanted and needed to spend my time learning and growing. Not only did I learn how to sequence a beautiful class, I learned how to use my voice, adjust and guide people in positions, teach breathing and meditation, how to use music appropriately in classes, and so much more. However, the greatest thing I learned was that my own yoga journey is just beginning! There are so many things that I needed to be taught a firm foundation on, as well as several things that I was pushed to on an advanced level as well. I was only practicing yoga a few times a week before my training, and now it’s motivated me to practice every day! On top of that, I was teaching full classes just a week after my training. You can look forward to becoming comfortable teaching almost immediately and also a teacher that people love! Brittany and the Yoga Underground is an amazing place to be. I would suggest this training to anyone and everyone. If not for the purpose of teaching, but the sole purpose of finding something special inside of yourself.

Desi

My YTT experience isn’t something that can be summed up in a short paragraph or a few sentences. It was an experience that inspired me to evolve into a beautiful version of myself that I have come to admire each day. I learned the skills and confidence to teach a class by the end of 4 weeks, as well as carry out that confidence in the real world to pursue what I truly love. Brittany does an amazing job at showing each person that walks through those teacher training doors how to love themselves through the journey of YTT because it’s not an easy walk through the park. After YTT I felt like my understanding of yoga took leaps and bounds of growth and I understood the culture of yoga, the development, and how I can apply it to my own individual self. YTT has been on of the greatest experiences of my life because of the culture that Brittany has created in her classroom, it’s something you can’t put to words. I encourage everyone to try a class and if you are wanting to pursue teacher training, to ask Brittany about it and have a conversation with her! You will be able to feel exactly what she has to offer just by being around her.

Julia

If there was another definition under leader, Brittany’s name would be there. She is an exceptional leader. She is right there with you the whole time helping you to understand, embrace and apply yourself, the Asanas, and yoga philosophy.
 
Doing my yoga teacher training at The Yoga Underground was one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life! I will definitely be going back to her for more training! The environment Brittany has created is beautiful. At The Yoga Underground I feel centered and free.

Ariana

I took Brittany’s training in September, 2015. I actually had missed the start date, but was informed by Brittany that she would catch me up and that I could still join. Yoga teacher training was something I had aspired towards for a couple years at that point, yet even still, I was intimidated that I wasn’t ready or good enough. However, Brittany gave me no excuse not to jump in head first and begin, and even after the first day, I began to see my body and emotions begin to heal in a way that they had never been before.

I have looked and researched into many yoga teacher training courses from Salt Lake to Provo, and I know this sounds cliche, but I honestly could not have picked a more magical program. What I wanted from a program, that I wasn’t quite satisfied elsewhere with, was that I wanted more than just the yoga poses, adjustments and Sanskrit names. I wanted the philosophy. I wanted a taste of what it FELT like to consider the true 8 limbs. This may sound selfish, but I wanted a program I could find healing and empowerment in for myself that I could emanate and share, because that is what yoga has always meant for me. It has always been a savior in my low moments.

Brittany tapped into a way of understanding that yoga CANNOT be digested, lived, or expressed without self-love and actualization, and it is clear that through her program, she made it her mission to unravel that within us more so than just giving us facts to recite and perform. What I loved the most is that she invited a host of numerous experts and educators who specialized in everything from recovery through meditation, balancing chakras, yoga expression through dance, anatomy and physiology and the science of how to get in touch with our truest temperament type based upon our phenotype. It was so unique.

To simply say that Brittany created a wonderful teacher training program would be an understatement. Honestly, it is a place of healing, of letting go, of holding on, of creating, of spreading wings, of trusting, and of flying. She cultivated Yoga Chikitsa in its most true and beautiful sense. I hold this experience close to my heart and would recommend it to all I love!

Deidre

Teacher training at the yoga underground is a thoughtful fusion of yoga instruction and inward reflection. The small groups create a very open and social atmosphere while also allowing for times of quietness and contemplation. Before training started I was expecting a physical challenge. While I did get stronger, the greater challenge was to slow down, be still, and think about who you are and where you want to be. This type of spiritual guidance expands beyond yoga practice and can be relevant to many other aspects of your life and inner self. Gaining a deeper understanding yourself will help you to better connect with others and be a more effective teacher. My favorite thing about Brittany’s training is how individuality is strongly encouraged as you find your own teaching style and voice. I feel equipped to create flowing, unscripted sequences and cultivate a space with a warm, welcoming atmosphere for all levels. I highly recommend training at The Yoga Underground, it is an invaluable investment and an experience you will cherish.

Maude

The Yoga Underground offers an incredible 200 Hour Teacher Training. The training accepts varying levels of experience, which allowed me to participate and excel in the program despite having little background. The Yoga Underground cultivates a positive, outstanding environment in which I was able to be inspired and motivated to learn and grow. I love this training because it helps you become an actual yoga teacher. After helping to master foundational concepts, poses, build a personal yoga philosophy and improve on your practice, Brittany capitalizes on developing good teachers. This sets the training apart from many other options. I had the opportunity to teach consistently. Although it was scary at first, it expedited my growth and gave me confidence to teach a real class. Brittany is engaging and makes everybody feel comfortable and capable–a feat that she has successfully achieved at the Yoga Underground.

Shari

I was so impressed with the description of TYU teacher training that I flew to Utah and spent one whole month absolutely absorbed in this delightful, daily immersion program. I loved every minute of my training. Brittany is an immensely gifted teacher. Being in her classes opens up possibilities and feels life giving. Her infectious enthusiasm and “can do” attitude on the mat make you feel like you want to try anything and aspire to whatever is the next level for you. I instantly loved the open, high flying and yet down to earth feel of this studio. Everyone was accepted at the spiritual/physical level they were on and it was a beautiful experience watching everyone thrive and improve. With such a small group, we were able to get to know and provide encouragement for each other. We were taught and then given many opportunities to sequence and teach classes and receive valuable feedback as we grew in confidence and ability. Brittany kept everything alive and fresh by mixing it up and bringing in knowledgeable resources from the community to expand our knowledge of meditation, chakras, street and mandala yoga. We went out into the community and enjoyed yoga in the beautiful outdoors, a visit to BYU to learn from the resident physical trainer, even a day trip to Salt Lake City to attend classes at different yoga studios to broaden our horizons. It was highly evident that Brittany puts her all into her teacher trainings, expertly and magically weaving together all of these different elements seemingly into the very fabric of my being so that at the end of the training I felt different from when I first started. My month in Utah flew by and I left feeling charged up and empowered with the experience, skills, and confidence I needed to teach and share with others the life giving skills I was privileged to receive. I highly recommend this teacher training to anyone and everyone who is interested in transformation. The Yoga Underground rocks!!!

Holli

My yoga teacher training experience at the Yoga Underground was absolutely priceless. Brittany is an incredible teacher, and is an expert when it comes to building creative sequences and crafting an effective class. I learned so much from practicing with her daily and gleaning from her wisdom and experience in our class discussions. Her curriculum is designed to give her students fundamental knowledge base in Ashtanga Yoga while also providing a wide variety of experiences, allowing each student to find their own individual direction in the broad world of yoga. Each day of training was enlightening, educational, and so much fun!

The two most valuable things I took away from her training were 1) the teaching experience — Brittany is skillful at teaching her students how to teach, and provides many opportunities for them to practice teaching in the training; and 2) the confidence to be an authentic teacher. Brittany has a gift for helping people discover their voice as a yoga teacher, encouraging them to “own” their individual style and strengths that they bring to a class. With these two skills, I felt confident pursuing teaching opportunities immediately after receiving my certification. My current students often comment on how much they enjoy my style of teaching and approach to yoga — I give all the credit to my training at The Yoga Underground!

Alison

I’ve wanted to do a yoga teacher training since I graduated college four years ago. While I loved the idea, I was also so intimidated, thinking I needed to be a certain type of person, have a certain type of body, or even have reached a certain level in my yoga practice. After a friend did her training with Brittany at The Yoga Underground, she convinced me I could do it. After the first day, all of my fears dissipated. Brittany’s program welcomes all levels and all types. Her curriculum is designed to help you better know yourself so that you can be a more effective, authentic teacher. The program is so well-rounded; I not only gained knowledge about Ashtanga yoga and how to better my own practice, but also learned life-changing lessons about meditation, teaching techniques, and methods to better know and understand myself and my students. I love that Brittany focused so much on us becoming the type of teacher we naturally are, not trying to fit any kind of stereotype or expectation.

The teacher training at The Yoga Underground completely changed my life. Once I finished, I had the confidence and knowledge I needed to build my own sequences and teach classes, but most importantly I’ve enjoyed better health, less stress, and honestly a more joyful life. I cannot say enough about this program and the passion, love, and fun that Brittany so naturally brings to it every day. You will not find a more compassionate, positive environment to deepen your practice, increase your self-knoweldge, love, and awareness, and transform you into a yoga teacher.

Danni

The Yoga Underground not only gave me the required 200 hours(and then some) for my teaching certification, it literally gave me a new lease on life. I found a fresh sense of self, healthy body, and a clearer mind. What I gained during training is something that money cannot buy. In terms of knowledge, in terms of practice, this studio is unparalleled.
There isn’t a distance I wouldn’t travel to in order to participate and attend The Yoga Underground Teacher Training Program. There are very few times in life, very rare breeds of teachers, whom one is fortunate enough to be touched by as a student. Brittany is, and forever will be held in my highest regard. She represents all that was, all that is, and all that will be true in this practice.

Whatever your hesitation, stop. Whatever the excuse, dismiss it. The Yoga Underground will change your life in every way possible. Brittany has one of the oldest soul’s of anyone I have ever been blessed enough to meet. Her intuitive capacity for teaching and exploring remains a mystery to me. All that I know is that I am by far, a better human for being around her. As a teacher, I have never appreciated another student until taking her training. She is the very definition of unconditional love.

Thank you. Thank you on so many levels for pushing me, for holding me, for making me stand on my own two feet. You have given me the tools to not only teach, but to hone my craft. To love my own practice, to love my own habitually incorrect alignment, to breathe, to focus to forgive. Every day on the mat is another chance. A chance to try again. You have given me the strength to pursue, to engage, to believe in my inherent passion. Brittany, this is a debt that can never be repaid. This life experience is unmatched.

Thank you Brittany. Thank you for seeing the lump of clay that I was before you, and for allowing the process to mold me. You will always be my North.

Gabe

The words “amazing” and “life-changing” are often overused or misused nowadays. However, when I say these words to describe yoga teacher training at The Yoga Underground I mean them in their entirety. It was life-changing. I live my day-to-day life differently now because of what I learned. I have grown to understand, love, and accept myself better. I have less stress and anxiety and I am an overall happier person. Brittany is an amazing teacher and has created a curriculum that caters to all kinds of people. She knows how to connect and encourage you in the ways that will best help you. I went into teacher training thinking I would only learn about how to teach yoga but I came out of it with a different and improved perspective on living. I would highly recommend this training to anyone.

Chanelle

My training at the Yoga Underground was incredibly uplifting for my mind, body, and spirit. Brittany is a deep well of knowledge and gladly answers any questions about any aspect of yoga teaching throughout the course. I got so much out of the YTT program. I have heard of students who graduate from other teacher training programs and feel that they don’t actually know HOW to teach. They feel clueless when put in front of a group of students. I left the Yoga Underground’s program knowing full well how to teach any group of students from start to finish. The program goes in depth on certain topics such as poses, breathing, and mindfulness, while also covering the basics of teaching yoga, which many other training programs often leave out. My favorite thing about the course was that Brittany, The Yoga Underground’s studio owner and extremely educated and trained yogi, teaches the entire 200-hour course, aside from a handful of days in which she hires outside professionals to come in and share some valuable information on their area of expertise. She is dedicated to seeing her YTT students succeed!

Valerie

I am so glad that I decided to certify with the Yoga Underground–Brittany is in it not for the money, but for the yoga, and it shows in everything she does. Her passion and creativity really drive the whole certification process from start to finish. Right after finishing the course, I started auditioning for yoga teaching jobs, and I have never once been nervous or intimidated, something I have Brittany to thank for. She makes sure that every student has ample opportunities to practice teaching full classes and gives feedback on how to improve. Beyond all that, though, is the new sense of being in the world that I have. My mindset will truly never be the same, and it is thanks to Brittany for opening so many new worlds to me!

Abigail

Brittany’s advanced teacher training at The Yoga Underground was transformative and effective. Being in a smaller group allowed each of us to explore our questions and go into a deeper investigation of sequencing, cueing, and adjusting. Weaved into all of this was the foundation of yoga philosophy and how to make it practical, including and especially off the mat! We were shaped into better leaders – not just teachers – by taking on valuable projects and sharing them in the community. I treasured the time forging close connections and building relationships. We rallied together and supported each other with encouragement and feedback (and lots of practice!). Having a mentor who cares about you and facilitates experiences that inspire you to flourish is what makes this one of the best YTT programs out there.

Wowowow. Brittany’s YTT is life changing. I learned so much in just a short amount of time. I cannot even put into words how much I love the other trainees involved and how much love I have towards Brittany. I wish that I could hang out with all of them everyday. Brittany made the environment feel so safe and I felt as though I could be 100% myself all of the time. I went home every night from class so excited about all that I had learned and couldn’t even wait for the next day to come around. During the training, I was able to learn more about yoga, meditation, and most importantly, myself. I truly learned how to love myself and how to make time for myself to do the things that I love to do. I feel as though this training opened a whole new world for me and I truly feel like the Universe is helping me get to where I am supposed to be. If you are looking for making life long friends, learning more about how to connect to your true self, and looking to become the biggest badass really ever, this teacher training is for you. I love the studio, the other trainees, myself, and Brittany Andrews times infinity.

It’s hard to say what my favorite thing was in YTT, because I loved it SO MUCH! I signed up for this yoga training thinking I would just learn about yoga teaching—and I did– but the education and opportunities for deepening my understanding for my personal practice as well as learning more about my self-improvement and spiritually was unexpected and unparalleled to anything I’ve completed.

I love yoga so learning so much about it was my dream. I loved learning more about mediation—this was something that I really didn’t know much about prior to beginning. And I completely love the hands-on approach to teaching and how much teaching practice we got while going through the program. I could see the growth in myself and others from the first week of teaching to the last.

Brittney is an amazing instructor. I love the practical (instead of ideal) approach she takes to yoga. She helps everyone to feel that they can come as they are and that we are enough! Also I admire how she helps people to feel good about the practice they just did—in spite of whatever their body had to offer that day—and that she taught us to consider that as we are leading our classes.

Learning about how to teach different personality types was something that I’d never even considered, but it makes such a huge difference.

I also love that she keeps the classes pretty small so that we get a lot of individual attention. And I love the type of people she attracts to this program. The group dynamic was warm and welcoming and encouraging. I hope to stay in touch with everyone from the class!

Mara

Wow. wow. wow. What an amazing experience. I made so many deep friendships these past 5 weeks. The atmosphere for learning could not have been any more loving and supportive. These girls are friends for life. Brittany is amazing at encouraging the best parts of yourself to shine. She is always positive in her teaching. She gently nudged all of us to do so much more than we thought we were capable of! I left the 5 week training not only confident to teach my own classes, but also excited to do so! I got my first teaching job less than a week after leaving! She explains the business side of yoga so well. Brittany is a wealth of knowledge from her many years of travel and education. She has taken all the best things she has learned and put them into this course so that we don’t have to go on our own ten year journey to learn it all; Thank you, Brittany.

Carlyn

My all time favorite thing about my training was that it gave me confidence to be me. I enjoyed how we were taught to really look within, find who we are, and our own journey of happiness and peace.

Jordan

Yoga teacher training at The Yoga Underground was a pivotal experience in my life. It helped me develop skills, habits, and a perspective that has not only benefited me in my personal journey, but has also helped my students in theirs. Brittany is a gifted instructor who makes the process fun and engaging. I would do it again in a heartbeat!

Rachel

I absolutely loved learning about both the philosophies and the mechanics of yoga. I feel confident in structuring a class, and I also feel a lot more knowledgable and mindful of my own yoga practice. I’d highly recommend YTT through The Yoga Underground to anyone who might want to become an instructor, or just anyone who wants to deepen their love and understanding of yoga!

Julianna

Teacher Training at The Yoga Underground has been one of the highlights of my life. I loved every second of it. The meditation and personality recognition classes should be mandatory for all people to learn to live more well-rounded lives. Everything we talked about opened me up more than I thought I could be and it helped me become a better version of myself.

Stephanie

I loved how in teacher training we didn’t just learn about asanas and Sanskrit, but we learned about ourselves and our emotions. The training was well-rounded and that not only helped us teach yoga, but also enabled us to navigate life more fully and meaningfully. Brittany did so much more than show us how to teach a yoga class!

Marisa

Teacher training at TYU was an amazing experience. Not only did I learn a lot about the physical practice of yoga, but I gained emotional and spiritual insight as well. Brittany structured the training so that the pace was quick but with a fun and encouraging atmosphere. If you’re thinking of doing yoga teacher training, do it here!

Bay

My favorite thing about teacher training at The Yoga Underground is the community that was built between myself, the other trainees, the teachers, and other yoga practitioners. Everyone is friendly, non-judgemental, and supportive. With a community like that behind you, you can do anything in yoga or in life.

Holly

Certifying with The Yoga Underground was truly a beautiful experience. Going into the process I worried if I would be ready to teach successfully in such a short 5 week time period. I finished this program not only capable but with ability and excitement to continue on my journey. The teacher Brittany brought professionalism, fun, and an abundant amount of passion and connection. This is a fantastic opportunity for everyone.

Kate

Teacher training at The Yoga Underground was more than a certificate for me. Being my second teacher training I wish I would have made it my first. Thank you, for the priceless knowledge and experience. Thank you, for the skills, the laughs, and the confidence.

Chelsey

The Yoga Underground training was so awesome. With the small class size, it allowed Brittany to be able to help us one on one in learning about and perfecting our practice. I cherish the friends and new memories that were created and the experience that I now have.

Alex

All I can say is that Brittany’s training was like eating poprocks. It’s full of surprises, delicious, and makes you feel like a kid.

Teri

Teaching training at The Yoga Underground was one of the best things I’ve ever done for my practice, my teaching, and myself. I learned so much and enjoyed every moment.

Jyll

If you’re considering taking the 200-hour yoga training, The Yoga Underground and Brittany are a fantastic choice. The program is a life-changer in confidence, mental health, and physical well being. You are never to old to improve!!!

Brianna

Brittany was a wonderful instructor. Her energetic personality made learning easy and fun. Her hands on approach to teaching yoga was incredibly efficient. This course is well worth your time!

Callie

My favorite part about my YTT experience at the Yoga Underground was the self confidence it gave me. Those five weeks allowed me to see my body from a new and beautiful perspective. I’m so grateful for this training!

Becca

My favorite part of my YTT experience was my mental and emotional journey. I have learned to love and be proud of who I am and who I am becoming.
I’m also in love with Brittany because she’s the best teacher ever and her dog is the cutest. 😉

Elizabeth

I loved my whole YTT experience. I really liked how the classes were small so we all felt like we really got to know each other. It was such a good experience to be able to learn how to help my mental and physical self as well as help others!!

Marisa

My favorite part of the YTT experience was getting to know all of my classmates better. We all had different skill levels and were able to help each other out from different angles of experience. Having yoga as a common ground between all of us was the perfect setup for magic to happen in the studio!

Emily

YTT taught me about being a yoga teacher but literally changed my world. I loved the life long connections made and the knowledge I’ll be using forever! So thankful for Britt! cheezzzy but true.

Chongsuk

I loved 200 YTT so much!!!!! It was great to learn about lots of adjustments and right poses. I have been doing wrong whole time on some poses!! lol. It was amazing time to learn and grow in Yoga. It seemed busy but at the same time it was so relaxing. Thank you so much!! You are a great teacher!!

Kathleen

My favorite part of this course is how it had a completely non-judgmental space. A safe space, to be our true authentic selves without viewing anyone as better or worse, but I see that happened because of you, Brittany, you didn’t put yourself on a pedestal which allowed us to feel as though there was equality, even among teacher/student relationship. Beautiful. Thank you for everything!!

Sheree

There were so many things that I loved. I think one of my favorite things was the bond that was formed by the group of women in the training. We continue to talk and stay in touch. The friendship and support will last a lifetime. There is nothing more powerful than a tight group of women that love and support each other.

Megan

My favorite thing about my training experience was learning about meditation and yoga philosophy. This training was so healing, deep and meaningful to my soul, going way beyond learning the ananas. I loved spending time connecting with the many beautiful souls at the Yoga Underground studio. I can’t thank you enough for this opportunity and for creating such an all-encompassing experience!

Tejan

My favorite part was how quickly we got into teaching each other. I was really scared at first but I believe that it helped me out way more than it would have if we waited longer to teach. My other favorite part was the ladies and the lasting friendships we all earned. I think we got really lucky with our group of ladies and I am so thankful for that.

Why choose TYU?

From Owner, Brittany Andrews: – My trainings are kept extremely small and intimate, we take 4-12 people at a time. In my opinion, students deserve a lot of individualized attention when participating in this kind of program. Most programs will take upwards of 25 students, and I think that renders that specific program generally ineffective. – You will learn how to sequence AND teach a class! It’s surprising how many trainings leave these very important factors out…my method involves learning teaching principles and hands-on adjustment principles from the very beginning. And you’ll get lots of teaching practice, with such a small group. – The training can get as advanced as you’d like it to be — working on basic poses? Great! Looking to nail that handstand? Fantastic! Focused on flexibility? Excellent! I don’t divide my trainings into levels, because I think that’s highly unnecessary and frankly a waste of your money. (Can’t you tell I’m an savvy businesswoman? Ha.) I am happy to work with the students in my trainings, regardless of the “level” they happen to be at the moment. – Once you’ve completed the training, you are welcome back for any subsequent trainings, free of charge. – Lastly, I participate in 100% of my training. It’s my favorite thing in the world. A lot of head instructors “outsource” the majority of their teacher trainings to other instructors, but when you sign up to train with me, you’re training with me.
