300 hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training

Kim Dawes and Britney Rudolph have joined hearts, hands, and minds to co-facilitate White Lotus Home's 300hr Yoga Teacher Training. We are welcoming twelve, 200hr yoga teachers on a journey of renewal and inspiration, both personally and professionally. 

Over the course of a year, you will embark on a journey from head to heart. You'll be asked to deepen in your role as a yoga practitioner and teacher. By doing this and going within your own heart space, you gain wisdoms to share with your students in a way that helps them grow and evolve.

This journey reveals advanced teaching methodologies, yoga philosophy, the nuances of trauma and overall wellness. More than ever, people are in need of the ancient healing modalities of yoga, and this curriculum makes sure you graduate feeling confident in your gifts and abilities.


Throughout the year, you will have intimate sessions with lead teachers Kim Dawes and Britney Rudolph. Kim will guide you through the weekends of advanced teacher content and host the visiting instructors. Prem Sadasivananda will walk you through the beauty of yoga philosophy in monthly Zoom sessions.


In October, Kim and Britney will host our 3-day teachers' retreat hosted in Yellow Springs, Ohio. During the retreat we focus on embodying ancient yoga wisdoms in your daily life, connecting with nature, and uncovering your higher duty as a yoga teacher. As we learn to hold ourselves to a higher standard of teaching, we steward yoga forward in a way that is reverent and intentional.


Our team of visiting instructors share their knowledge during the weekend immersions. Anna Furderer teaches you the nature of the addictive mind and how to use yoga as a will-power aid.

We are incredibly experienced in holding space for others while providing you with ample tools to add to your yoga teacher toolbox. By year end, you will feel confident in addressing your student's physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs.

Although this is a hybrid training program (virtual & in-person) it is highly encouraged you attend in-person as often as possible to gain the most from your experience and investment. The virtual Yoga wisdoms sessions with Prem are hosted through Zoom. Attendance is required as you will learn best in person.

"I am forever grateful for the 200YTT experience that I had with Kim. I deepened my knowledge of yoga, and made great friendships along the way. I now have the opportunity to teach others, and help others on their yoga journey."


"White Lotus Home 200YTT helped me open up and connect with myself spiritually, mentally, and emotionally. Now as a yoga teacher I'm able to help people gain that connection with themselves as well."



"Going through 200 hr YTT through White Lotus HOMe at Grace Tree Yoga Studio was a HUGE turning point in my personal growth and learning more about myself. We learned the basic philosophy of yoga and had a lot of opportunities for leading a yoga class, which I personally needed. I would recommend this to anyone who is thinking about doing a YTT."


"The YTT 200 at Grace Tree Yoga Studio and White Lotus hOMe was a wonderful experience. I had no idea what to expect, and I truly enjoyed every moment. The weekends flew by as we spent class time with Kim, Britney, Jill, and Kristen. Each teacher had their own style and was genuine, prepared, and knowledgeable. Their love of yoga and consistent practice of the 8 limbs was very apparent. They were always open to discussion and questions, never rushing to cover material. Throughout the training, I was encouraged to be myself, use my voice, be creative, and trust the process. Following their lead, I now feel very prepared and excited to teach my own class. The studio itself is a warm, peaceful, and welcoming space. It has a special place in my heart, and I look forward to continuing my practice at Grace Tree."
