the craft of teaching yoga in rome, italy

The Craft™ of Teaching Yoga in Rome, Italy, is a five-week immersion into the Craft. Our program is an interlocution between artistry, yoga philosophy, introspection, and self-realization. Employing yoga’s rich history alongside practical teaching methodology, the Craft empowers trainees to lead a creative, musical, and meaningful vinyasa flow. The Craft enrolls practitioners to be an active participant on the mat, and in their lives, with expanded self-awareness, purpose, and presence.

The Craft explores four overarching themes that guide us through the training experience. These meta-concepts enrich our relationship with ourselves and our interactions with everything in our lives. Through the felt experience of each concept, we increase our capacity to lead as yoga facilitators. We awaken, we flow, we expand, and we integrate. We emerge from this training transformed, yet closer to our selves than ever before.

adrienne & eric


We are two liberated souls enraptured by the wonderment of existence. We craft our every day lives through the lens of yoga philosophy, and we co-create an environment with our students that reveals the wisdom in the ancient texts: you are already whole. We allow our students to experience this simple, yet profound, fact through radical embodiment, rich discussion, and the practical application of lessons. We share yoga asana, ritual, contemplation, breathing techniques, and our connection to nature to guide our students in The Craft. We cannot wait to explore the vast inner landscape with you.


I, Adrienne, am an Indiana-girl living a life I never thought possible. Some say I am a pioneer in the fitness industry, but I’m just a dreamer fiercely dedicated to living with purpose and heart-felt intentions. For the longest time, I sought happiness outside of myself. I kept shifting and changing everything about my external environment in hopes that my inner world would feel better. Through yoga, I long-last found the peace I desired. I remembered my perfection, and by loving myself entirely, I became empowered to share my lessons with others.  The yoga philosophy and teachings are my confidant, a trusted friend that illuminates my shadows and pushes my barriers beyond comprehension into pure potential and expansion. // adrienne’s website

Eric Rabena

I, Eric, live by the philosophy that I can only live my life to my limited capacity allowed by my experience. That is, the potential of my circustances of my life are mere constructs of my past, present, and thoughts for the future. Thusly, I practice never to take things personally because I understand that everyone has different expectations of the world. And it is for this uniqueness that I dance and revel in the varieties of life. I say, the commonalities we identify within our relationships are comforting and familiar, indeed, but finding inspiration in diversity is what paves the road to self-expression. I yearn to share yoga because it illuminates my path as a sentient being, and I am humbled and inspired, grateful for my life of learning and love. // eric’s website

 a few testimonials


The Craft changed my life!

It's more than a training to become a yoga instructor (that's a given), it's the opportunity to grow as a human, living on the edge of your skin: body, soul & mind. I made incredibly close friendships & dug deep within myself to push beyond comforts & into potential & take creative risks.

Adrienne’s creative vinyasa flows are passionate, embodied & empowering for everyone. The classes are accessible while still offering a challenge to strengthen & stimulate the mind. Do it, just sign up already! It will be more than you anticipated a training could be.

-Ashley Zimmerman, Spring 2017


hands down the training I would choose

I served as a mentor during The Craft in 2017. As an RYT 500, if I were to start my training over again, this is hands down the training I would choose. The quality of teaching that emerges from this program is incredibly impressive. I feel lucky to have been a part of this beautiful training.

-Chelsea Bird, Spring 2017


So yes, do it. Absolutely.

I was in The Craft in winter/spring of 2017.

You should choose this YTT program if you meet the following:
1. You want to learn from some of the best instructors in Seattle
2. You want to expand your yoga network and make wonderful, supportive friends
3. You crave a safe space for personal development, challenge, and recreating the lenses through which you see yourself and the world

You will receive all of the tools you need to learn how to teach a gorgeous vinyasa class, be supported through the program's mentorship component, and make lifelong friends in the process!

The Craft of Teaching Yoga is THE program to choose! 

I completed my 200 RYT program in April of 2018 and began teaching immediately. But learning to teach a class is a small part of this training - the work is about going deeper with the self and uncovering our veils. The reading each week continued to awaken our minds and guide us to go deeper into this journey. In this program you have the opportunity to learn from other guest yogis allowing exposure to other learning styles and perspectives. 

The structure of the program is laid out in a way that it flows so perfectly with the learning and progresses seamlessly. Our weekly rituals were my favorites part of the week and something so sacred to each kula. The levels of support from your buddy to mentor and family and from Adrienne in Eric allows for each individual to be supported in a way that is unique to them. 

The most miraculous part of this journey for me - I went over 160 days migraine free, the longest I have ever been free from migraines in over 30 years. This work is good. Allow yourself to experience it!

Taking the seat of a student requires humility and spiritual bravery. It means tuning into yourself to develop the spiritual–stamina and flexibility to confront and understand your limitations and biases to endorse a life full of compassion and self-love. This self-love is a love that heals, sees holistically, and gives unconditionally, necessarily broadening your scope of understanding for the benefit of all living beings.
