Ready to take a big step forward with PURE Yoga Texas and PURE Yoga Institute? Want to simply deepen your knowledge and broaden your practice to Baron Baptiste "Journey Into Power" vinyasa yoga?

Over the last three years, the PURE Yoga Institute ("PYI") has conducted an intensive, 9-week, beginner's hot yoga teacher training in Austin, Texas. After well over 500 curriculum hours of instruction and practice, 100% of our graduates completed their mentorships and are teaching hot yoga in Austin, Chicago, Dallas, Florida, New York, and Virginia. All PYI graduates are now Original Hot Yoga Association ("OHYA") Level 1 Certified Teachers. We have always emphasized quality over quantity.

This year, we have built an alliance with our friends and fellow teachers, Albina and Roger Rippy, to co-sponsor a Registered Yoga Alliance 200-hour Teacher Training to the PURE Yoga Texas community. 100% online. We believe this builds a foundation for our trainings and class offerings for years to come.

Roger and Albina, both with E-RYT 500 certifications, have been leading RYT-200 hour beginner and RYT-300 hour advanced Yoga Teacher Trainings since 2008, graduating several hundred trainees who now teach yoga all over the world. Roger and Albina co-founded and co-produced the Texas Yoga Conference from 2010-2013 in Houston, TX with peak attendance of 2000 yogis and currently co-curate the Taos Mountain Yoga Festival at Taos Ski Valley. Over the years, Roger and Albina have led over 8,000 yoga classes to over 125,000 students, grounded in the Baptiste Yoga and Forrest Yoga vinyasa yoga styles. More importantly, Roger and Albina have a track record of giving back to society, from youth outreach and juvenile justice programs, to training teachers for the Africa Yoga Project in Kenya.
