Come home to the wisdom of your Temple Body. Bring your full presence into the moment and into your breath. On your journey of embodied feminine leadership, you will experience Temple Body Arts® approach to yoga through the lens of the Five Fold Path and working with archetypal energies, the feminine mysteries, and your womb wisdom. Temple Body Arts® Yoga explores ways to move and align your body to support your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual growth. 


While honoring the wisdom of traditional yoga practices, Temple Body Arts® empowers you to Awaken your Graceful Warrior. Claim your space in your Temple Body and Divine Purpose.

Allow your authentic essence to shine as you find new ways of moving and expressing yourself on and off the mat. You are a unique fingerprint of the divine. Your Temple Body is the bridge to express your infinite creative potential. You are invited to Live Artfully, on purpose co-creating with the divine as you follow your Highest Yes. 


You are invited to awaken your infinite potential through divine alignment, and authentic expression on your evolutionary path. In Temple Body Arts® Yoga, we focus on the journey and how we show up in each moment rather than being solely focused on the goal or destination.

Practice with Us

we begin to practice at 31 mins



At the heart of Anusara Yoga are its life-affirming principles of “Opening to Grace” and “Aligning with the Divine.” When Sofiah experienced this principle, she heard a voice that said “This is your Yoga.” Temple Body Arts® Yoga infuses this philosophy into all of its practices.

Temple Body Arts® Yoga honors the myriad of roots and lineages that have walked this evolutionary path and prepared the soil for us to Live Artfully. 


Our Temple Body Arts® Yoga Teacher Training focuses on exalting women’s empowerment and spiritual freedom. We recognize women’s cyclical nature and wisdom, and therefore, we will address how to teach and lead a yoga practice that recognizes the particularities of female anatomy and honors women’s cycles.

You will be encouraged to consider how your yoga practice may differ throughout our unique seasonal rhythms, from the onset of menarche to pregnancy and after birth, in your mothering years, or during the transition to menopause and thereafter. This perspective will translate into exploring and cultivating conscious awareness and respect for your own monthly lunar cycles.

Also, with the roots of Temple Body Arts® Yoga incorporating expressive healing arts and dance therapy, you will learn to weave expressive and organic movement throughout the practice, giving opportunities to explore your yoga off the mat and into dance. 

Yoga & Social Justice

yoga is a powerful force of social justice

Participants will be encouraged to explore the intersections between yoga and social justice by exploring yoga’s great benefits on the soul, mind, and body, specifically in calming the nervous system and addressing some of the effects of long-held trauma in the female body due to systemic racism, sexism, ableism, and other forms of oppression. It is because of this understanding that our training is trauma-informed.

This training will empower you to use yoga as a powerful tool for transformation, both individually and for the collective; you will also be encouraged to become compassionate teachers who create inclusive and empowering spaces for diverse populations.

At the RYT-200 Level Training, we offer the foundation and roots of yoga through embodiment, teaching, and leading. Within asana practice, we focus on physical, mental, and spiritual alignment within each posture.

You will learn the Temple Body Arts® Yoga Signature Flow, the Five Fold Path and the art of teaching as you begin to guide others into the feminine mysteries. 


Are you interested in learning more about yoga at its roots beyond the physical practice?

Experience the power of ceremony and ritual to set intentions for the way your life unfolds. Claim your sovereignty and step through the multi-dimensional portal of the practice of yoga. Through mantra, meditation, dance and asana, we’ll weave beauty together, beyond the mat.

Are you curious about the asana practice?
Although dance is blended into this YTT, you will also leave with a solid understanding of Vinyasa class structure. Sun Salutations, key poses, and mini sequences will be covered extensively. You will also learn hands on assists and how to safely offer assists and adjustment to your students.

Do you feel ready to step into the role of an embodied feminine leader?

Practice finding and expressing your voice with a supportive group of women as you clarify and crystalize what your unique offering to the world looks like. Through peer teaching, communication exercises and group sessions we hold space for you to practice the art of leadership and divine feminine embodiment.

Do you feel called to move and dance, but have no dance background?
Movement is our birthright. No dance training or background is necessary to find your flow. It’s not about being “good at it”. We dance to get out of our heads, connect with our bodies, and find the freedom that comes with movement. 

Do you desire to stand out as a Yoga Teacher and Embodied Feminine Leader?

This training offers so much more than just your regular 200 HR Yoga Alliance Teacher Training, we not only cover all that you need to be a Yoga Alliance Teacher, but so much more with Living Tantra, Divine Feminine Leadership Skills, Social Justice and Inclusivity, Magnetic Marketing, Goddess Embodiment, Expressive Healing Arts and Dance.

Do you desire to deepen into the feminine mysteries and learn more about the power of your womb and your cyclical nature as a woman?

This training is for women who were born with wombs. Even if you do not have a physical womb anymore or do not bleed, you are still welcome here to learn how to align your cyclical nature with the seasons and the moon. You will leave here empowered to design a yoga flow depending on where woman are in their own cycle.
