By Rachel Lubich Yoga
Immerse on your yoga Journey
2018 SPRING YOGA Training: March 22 - May 24
Location: San Diego, California
We welcome you to be a part of an unforgettable and enriching experience as you deepen your yogic knowledge. Students will create a solid foundation based upon rich and ancient yogic traditions, while learning how to navigate within the realm of modern yoga. The intention of our program is to create knowledgeable and independently thinking yoga practitioners who are prepared to teach upon graduating, if they choose. Our training is unique and designed to maintain a steady pace with the majority of your studies completed in-person during our shared hours together. We feature weekly “yoga labs” on Thursday evenings which will include guided asana practice where exploration, participation, experimentation and inquiry are encouraged. Thursday Yoga Lab is designed to be an engaging experience to help you deepen your personal practice while applying your newly expanded knowledge as a teacher.
This training will cover all required Yoga Alliance standards to ensure you are wholly prepared to earn your certification upon completion of the program. This includes immersing students in their practice for personal growth as a practitioner and learning how to share this knowledge in the seat of the teacher through personal observation, applied techniques, and practice teaching. The scope of this immersion will include study of asana, pranayama, kriya, mantra and meditation. Additional topics will include teaching methodology, hands on adjustments, anatomy and physiology, philosophy and ethics. Upon completion of all syllabus coursework and attendance of all YTT workshops, you will earn your 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training certificate!
Since our program is Yoga Alliance certified, you will be eligible to register as a certified 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) with Yoga Alliance once you graduate. Space is limited to ensure a healthy student-teacher ratio. Take time for you and transform!

Rachel Lubich Bio
Rachel is always increasing her yoga knowledge via courses, teaching & practice - Read about her experience!
I am a lifelong student committed to the study and sharing of yoga. With nearly 4,000 hours of teaching experience spanning over the last 7 years across multiple cities within the United States and abroad, I have absorbed many teachings from various communities I have been involved with. My studies and teachings have taken me to Costa Rica, where I earned my first teacher training certification and first began teaching yoga full-time, Philadelphia, San Diego and Austin.
Although a vinyasa teacher by training, I do not confine myself to one style or definition of teaching. Rather, I draw upon my life’s experiences, both on and off the mat, to help students discover their own definition of Yoga. My vinyasa classes are inspired by my personal practice, one consisting of intelligently sequenced, creative movement and the process of patiently listening to my body. Whether I am teaching a restorative or vinyasa class, students can expect to find their focus, explore their strengths and weaknesses, laugh and feel well balanced.
I have studied extensively under the guidance of KPJAYI Authorized Level II teacher Liza DeGaitano at her private home-studio, first in the advanced Tripsichore style, and later Mysore Ashtanga Vinyasa. I was fortunate enough to earn a position assisting morning Mysore with Liza as my mentor to enhance my hand-on adjustment knowledge within the Ashtanga technique, and gain experience tailoring my approach on different bodies and abilities. While I have opened my mind to absorb from local teachers and their intuitive and learned knowledge, I have also studied with notable teachers Richard Freeman, Mary Taylor and Leslie Kaminoff.
When not teaching, I love eating avocados, listening to classic rock on vinyl a little too loud, exploring the wilderness no matter the season, and just trying to be a really good human being! Additional information about Rachel, her yoga education and experience can be found on her website.
Dave Garza: Anatomy & Physiology
Dave has been practicing massage professionally since 1994 and instructing yoga students, massage therapists and other health care professionals since 1997. Studying physical anatomy continually helps his understanding of our mind body unity, and is a main driving force motivating the classes he facilitates.
A long student of yoga, Dave has completed teacher trainings with Mathew Sweeney (Ashtanga) and Mark Whitwell (Ha-Tha yoga) Dave has drawn his most influential guidance and inspiration from anatomy workshops by Leslie Kaminoff, David Keil, Erik Dalton and Tom Myers, and of course, years of experience through practice.
Dave is a board certified with the NCBTMB (National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork) and a certified Myoskelatal Therapist with the Freedom From Pain Institute. Dave maintains a full time massage practice in San Diego, Ca. If Dave is not doing bodywork, yoga, or teaching, he spends time on his mountain bike, engaging in often lengthy philosophical discussions, and lying around the floor.

Rachel Lubich YTT Testimonials
"Rachel Lubich has designed an incredible environment to "re-learn" yoga as it applies to personal practice and as a blossoming teacher. I had been practicing yoga for about 5 years before yoga teacher training, during which I relearned everything I thought I knew. YTT was something I considered for years after the realization that yoga was a life sustaining practice for me. At about the same time this seed of consideration was planted, I began practicing with Rachel, who became instrumental in the advancement of my spiritual, mental, and physical journey on and off the mat. Yoga with Rachel transforms; she lives and breathes yoga and everything it embodies. Her presence breeds confidence to try anything (with an element of FUN) and this was the confidence that brought me to immediately sign up for the training when she announced it. Now that I have done the training, it is confirmed that there is no one else I would have chosen to lead me through the journey. Through YTT, Rachel created a container of shared space that allowed for close examination of our yogic foundation as YTT students, being allowed a safe place to strip away what no longer was serving us mentally/physically/spiritually, open to growth, and grow into an instrument of yogic knowledge ourselves (as teachers). She was able to beautifully strike a balance of thoroughly reviewing philosophy, yoga as it was in the past/how it is/what it is growing into, postures, anatomy, alignment, sequencing, identity development, and so much more than can be reviewed here. A well, Rachel was able to weave in elements of spirituality that I have always looked for in other practices. The entire process was thorough, intentional, intense, and ultimately, transformational. An adventure in-itself- as students we never knew what gifts we would walk out of the "classroom" with. Rachel carries with her an extraordinary balance of energy, giftedness, motivation, play, and guidance. She is an incredible mentor, one who possesses a deep well of knowledge and wisdom. She is truly unlike any other! I am infinitely grateful for the opportunity to study with Rachel as one of her 1st YTT students. It was truly one of the best life decisions I have ever made, and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a way to positively enrich, grow, and potentially complete your life. I am an open heart for anyone thinking about studying under Rachel who wants an account of what it is like to be one of her students and delve into the YTT journey." -YTT Graduate
"I found Rachel’s YTT program to be a most amazing and tour-de-force experience! In these fast-moving and fun 200 hours, Rachel’s creatively designed course balanced our training in asana, meticulous alignment, sequencing, and anatomy with an in-depth understanding of underlying philosophy, Sanskrit, meditation, beautiful chanting, and even a beach seva afternoon. Colorful lectures by Rachel, an innovative class manual, and a generous sprinkling of practical teaching sessions ranging from traditional Ashtanga to improvisation and an hour-long final class, together sparked creativity and vividly conveyed the deep knowledge Rachel imparted. This YTT provided ample tools to dramatically improve my personal practice and understanding, while allowing me to develop a very personalized teaching style. Rachel was an engaging, thoughtful, highly knowledgeable and patient mentor throughout. I most thoroughly enjoyed and immensely benefited from this transformational journey – truly a one of a kind and unforgettable experience!" -YTT Graduate
