Do what you Love.

Whether you are looking for a way to learn the Hot26 class so you can practice at home or on the go, or you are searching for a new career, this training will give you the foundational knowledge necessary to build a strong, effective practice that inspires others and attracts a strong student base.    


In training, you will meet students of all physical levels and be able to learn from each other’s different body types, flexibility levels, strengths and injuries.  You will learn to look at each posture from different angles and understand how yoga works in your body.  You will learn the correct alignment, modifications and benefits of each pose in detail.  


While delving deep into your own physical and spiritual practice, you are also supporting the journey of those you are in training with.  There is an incredible group dynamic that is created in each training as each group becomes a family with lifetime friendships and a support network of fellow yoga warriors.  Upon completion of your training, your yoga family will expand as you embrace your students, fellow teachers and community.


Once you have completed your training, you will officially be eligible to register with Yoga Alliance as a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT).  Becoming a yoga teacher offers the freedom of self-employment as well as the flexibility of teaching locally or internationally.  Yoga teachers can be found in all walks of life- from the elementary classroom to the celebrity sports scene. 

 Now is a better time than ever to become a yoga teacher.  Millions of people throughout the world are waiting for the benefits that yoga can bring to their lives- and you have the opportunity to share it with them as a well-informed, professional and capable yoga teacher once you graduate from the Hot26 Yoga Teacher Training Program.   


Yoga teacher training is a transformative experience that will benefit you and those you come into contact with for the rest of your life.

The RYT200 class through Hot26 School of Yoga was thorough, in depth and well rounded. Would recommend this training to anyone interested in teaching or deepening their own practice!

Hot26 ran a beautiful teacher training program. The teacher is extremely knowledgeable and experienced. Myself and my peers learned immeasurable amounts not only about yoga, but about ourselves and how to create happier, more aware versions of ourselves. I can't think of a time in my life where I learned so much in such a short period of time (8 weeks, 200 hours). I'm so excited to bring what I learned at Hot26 to other yogis I meet along my journey.

I am so happy I chose to complete my yoga teacher training at Hot26 School of Yoga with Emily Henderson. The course was informative, enlightening and covered a multitude of topics around yoga. Emily's knowledge and expertise were thorough and I am excited to do more teacher training with her in the future. Thank you, Hot26 and Emily for making this such a great experience.

I have trained at various schools for various trainings. Hot26 School of Yoga offers one of the most comprehensive and thorough yoga trainings that I have ever experienced. I was able to open my own studio just a few months after graduating from the 200HR course. If Hot26 ever offers an 800 or 1,000 HR training, I will be there!

This course exceeded expectations! Emily and all of the teachers and staff at Hot26 provided an amazing experience and learning environment. There isn’t a single negative comment I have for the course content or the instructors. The content was fluid, and Emily facilitated amazing discussion into each focus area that went beyond just flipping through power points. She is a master of the 26 series and gave me a deeper understanding of each posture. I cannot wait to take additional teacher training courses at Hot26!

I took the RYT 200 class in the Spring of 2020, during COVID-19. Emily’s organization and comfort with an online platform made her program seem like it was always an online school. I say this as a compliment because I had access to material, lectures, and Emily without feeling like I was in fact 1,600 miles away from Puyallup, WA. I was mentored, my questions were answered, and I was in part of a new yogi community. In no way did I experience less of an education or a watered-down version of an RYT 200 training. Her professionalism is above par. Emily is passionate about yoga, but her course empowered me to create a lifestyle where yoga fits in and thrives within my own life and practice. I learned that yoga goes beyond the mat at the HOT26 School of Yoga. I am stronger; I have a better sense of my yoga journey and most importantly, I can graciously accept with the challenge of bringing yoga to others with the same care and compassion I learned at Hot26 School of Yoga. I’m walking away with a tool that will continue to shape and grow with me for life; that is invaluable.

Hot26 School of Yoga’s 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Program was a great experience. It was a friendly environment where I was supported, challenged, and encouraged to find my inner voice. It was no judgement and accepting no matter my yoga skill level and experience. It gave me a new perspective and insight into myself. It has taught me things about myself that I never acknowledged before. I was already on a healing journey before I came this training. Truly It was the perfect time for me to heal from my past. Words can not express the lightness that I feel. This training ignite a life long passion for practice, study, and teaching Yoga. Thanks Emily!

This training beyond exceeded my expectations!  It has been one of the hardest, challenging, emotional, and rewarding times of my life.  There may have been times where it didn't feel like it, but it turns out it was exactly what I needed in my life.  Emily's patience and compassion is so encouraging.  Her deep knowledge and passion really shines through.  I'm so happy I did it and encourage anyone who wants to know more about yoga and life in general to sign up.

Yoga has always been an interest to me.  I would practice it every now and then but it was never a constant.  Since taking my Yoga Teacher Training I have been able to practice yoga daily and it has truly changed my life.  I have been able to stay more present in everything that I do, recognize my emotions, and be more in tune with my mind and body at every single part of my day.  I notice when I miss a few days of Yoga now.  I love how I have gained more strength, flexibility, and awareness of my limits.  This training goes so much deeper than just the 26 postures and two breaths.  I thought that Hot26 was so boring when I first started doing it, but since coming to school at Hot26, it is my favorite yoga.  You can truly see the improvements in your body with practicing regularly.  This Hot26 Yoga Teacher Training has been such a blessing and I'm so excited to keep on practicing and improving my mind and body.  Thank you to everyone in the Hot26 Program that has helped me and my teacher training skills.  Thank you to my classmates for making this such a memorable experience and thank you especially to Emily for all your time and life lessons you have taught to our class.  It's been such an amazing journey watching everyone grow into even more amazing human beings than they already were.  You have been the greatest life coach I could ask for.  Thank you Hot26 for everything!

I believe the practice of yoga and what it includes is Emily.  The environment she creates and builds around her proves this.  She walks, lives, and breathes within this philosophy.  Thru this students engage them selves and learn new perspectives.  The program gives an excellent foundation for yoga.

I came into my training expecting to learn postures and Sanskrit, but what I got was so much more.  I received the tools to begin looking inward, to heal myself of wounds long since passed that simply lived in the back of my mind.  I made new friendships that I will never forget and I found myself open to more giving relationships after my own selfishness and competitiveness was revealed to me.  I am working on becoming more humble and a better version of myself using the 8 limbs as a guide down the correct path.  Thank you so very very much!

This has been an incredible journey, and I know it has only just begun for me.  The training has provided me the foundation I was looking for, from improving my postures, to self-reflection, from understanding my skeletal limitations, to listening to my body, from self-discipline in learning my dialogue, to perseverance.  I have appreciated everything this training has to offer.  It wasn't easy, but it has been very rewarding.  From the bottom of my heart...thank you!

Best training available. I was able to teach a 90 minute Hot 26 class on the day of my graduation. I was also given enough business guidance and information to open my first yoga studio just 6 1/2 months after graduation. Take this class!!!!

Puyallup, Washington

John Jensen

I knew I'd learn a lot coming into teacher training. I never thought I'd be prepared to teach a full 90 minute class, even with a decent personal practice. Emily was able to train me how to do just that. Not only to give accurate, concise instruction to my students, but also add depth to my own postures as well. 10/10 would recommend.

Becoming a yoga teacher has been one of my dreams for years, and I had tried previously to sign up for a TT program only to have it fall through because I couldn’t cover the full price before it started. I ended up losing a lot of money in the process without ever stepping foot in the training. In continuing my search for a better TT I looked for one that was YA certified, affordable, and I could leave knowing how to actually teach a class. When I found Emily‘s training I had almost enough money to cover the full cost, but nothing left over for my bills that month. When I talked to emily on the phone for the first time, I explained my situation and that I would have the remainder for her the next week. I also let her know that I couldn’t be there the first two days so maybe I should just wait until the next TT? She replied “No worries! just pay what you can and we can schedule make up days whenever you’re free. Let’s just get you in training!” That took an immense weight off of my shoulders! Throughout our training Emily continued to be just as patient and supportive, as well as knowledgeable, and answered any question we had with a reference to some book she read. She trailed off on intimate and heavy conversations with us, handled all of our meltdowns, crazy conflicting schedules, and endless stupid jokes with patience and understanding. Not to mention I left the training feeling confident I could teach a full class. I couldn’t have asked for a better TT experience! Outside of training not much is changed. Emily has helped guide me through teaching every step of the way, offering me a spot to teach real classes right after graduation, helping me to further my education whenever my schedule allows, and making a personal payment plan that works for me. Not to mention I’ve gained lifelong friends and a permanent yogi family in the Hot26 community! I was completely set up for success from the beginning, and will always be grateful to Emily and this program. You don’t have to wait until you’re “completely ready”! Take a chance and you won’t be disappointed.

My training at Hot26 was amazing. Emily is very effective in describing the information in a way that anyone can understand. She has an abundance of knowledge and shares it appropriately to help students implement the material. If you are looking for a quality learning experience, one that will more than prepare you for instructing yoga, Hot26 School of Yoga is the place to attend. Emily has a great teaching style; she keeps it interesting, relevant, and fun.

What a great experience! I feel very fortunate to have found Hot26 School of Yoga when I did. Emily is a great instructor. Very knowledgeable. Very personable. She was always there to answer questions- anything! It was just Rebecca and I so we received a lot of attention/energy. I think more so than anywhere else we could have gone. Emily was also very flexible with both our schedules, working full time. The biggest thing I loved about this school is how I felt walking through the door every class- it was like a weight lifted from my shoulders every time. Like coming home. 🙂 Thank you Emily! You’re the best! Keep up the great work. Anyone wanting great training should come to you!

For me this experience brought me peace.  I have a new and better was of seeing people, experiencing them, and a better understanding of life.  We all have or own story.  We are the only ones that can change that story.  Understanding, love, peace, serenity, relaxation.  I must take care of me.  Thank you Emily!  It has been an amazing journey.  I am so glad it was with you!

I didn't expect that this training would affect me as it did.  I always had a passion for yoga but the Hot26 Training made me have an even greater respect for the history and tradition of yoga.  I also met the best people who I now consider really close friends.  What I have gained from this training is more than a certification.  In a time when I needed guidance, Emily was there supporting me and encouraging me.  I couldn't have asked for a better experience.  Hot26 for life!

I came to teacher training thinking I was going to learn only about the postures, but Emily has taught me that yoga is so much more than just exercise, yoga is a lifestyle.  I have gained more knowledge than I ever thought I would- this training has not only given me the tools and confidence I need to be a great teacher, but to live my life in optimal health and be a better person.

I knew I wanted to be a teacher as soon as I had taken my 1st few hot yoga classes- but it was so expensive! A couple of my yoga teachers had told me about Emily's training and one day she was taking class at the studio I was taking class at and we spoke. I knew immediately that I wanted to train under her. She even worked out a payment plan for me. I knew that I wanted to be that positive and encouraging influence to others like my instructors had been for me. As I've gone through the training, I have learned so much about myself- I've not only learned about yoga- but I've gained tools that can help me to become the person I really want to be.
