Our Program

Founded in 2006, Alpha-Omega Yoga Training is one of the top and most authentic training programs in Texas. With nearly 500 graduates in the United States and abroad, our program is training tomorrow’s leaders in the yoga community.

Our 200 hour Yoga Training Programs is perfect for seasoned teachers, devoted practitioners, or those who are new to the yoga practice. When you become established in Yoga, you begin to feel the peace and tranquility that permeates throughout your life, which shines through the virtues of the teachings.

For those teachers or practitioners who have completed a 200 hour program, our 500 hour training provides the opportunity to further deepen your practice, integrating advanced knowledge of philosophy, ayurveda, anatomy and asana.

Our program is based on authentic yoga practices of India. Combining these ancient practices with modern teaching techniques, we provide you with a solid foundation for your personal and professional practice of Yoga.

Our core training encompasses Hatha Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga (Eight Limb Path), Vinyasa, Yin and Kriya Yoga. Our practices of asana and pranayama incorporate the core principles of the Hatha Yoga Pradapika, the ancient text for yoga. Students are encouraged to develop their own teaching style, finding inner freedom and expression of their true selves.  The yoga training program is designed to transform you physically, mentally and spiritually, providing you with the skills you need to go out into the world and share this wonderful practice with all.

Once your training is complete, Alpha-Omega provides you with a mentor, available to assist you as you navigate through your yoga journey.  We also provide continuing education programs throughout the year, providing you with opportunities to continue deepening your practice.

Testimonies “What students have to say about Alpha Omega Yoga Training”

Joanna Rains
 “Alpha Omega’s teacher training is awesome! Sheri and Laura are extremely knowledgeable and are able to provide a very hands-on and personal learning experience for every student. Yes, yoga changes us physically, but going through the 200hr teacher training changed me more emotionally and spiritually than I could have ever imagined. Thanks so much…and I’ll see you soon in the 500hr!”

The first time I stepped into a yoga class a couple of years ago, I knew I had stumbled onto something good.  I was fortunate enough to have two amazing teachers in my local gym that not only sparked my interest, but also helped me to continue coming back and work hard at my new found interest.
I quickly understood that yoga was much more than the classes were allowed to offer. I started to explore the idea of a teacher-training course and did my research.  One of my teachers mentioned Sheri and felt she was a perfect fit for my continued journey.  She was right in so many ways, not only does Sheri fully emerge you in the yoga lifestyle, but also she lives it and is an inspiration.
Her 200-hour monthly course made it so easy to fulfill my desire with a full work schedule.  I looked so forward to my weekends with my yoga buddies and Sheri and have an immense sense of satisfaction in having completed it.
As I walked into Sheri’s back door the last day of my classes I noticed a stone on the ground near the door.  It reads, ‘Life is a journey.’
I smiled and realized this was not an ending, but a perfect beginning to the journey of bettering my life through yoga.
Thanks Sheri.

“If you are looking to get your teacher certification and intend to have your entire view of yoga expanded into a deeper, more spiritually, mentally and physically life changing philosophy, under the instruction of a true yogi with a gift for teaching, this would be a good choice of studio. And if in the meantime you are interested in making incredible friendships, being humbled everyday by the knowledge and compassions of your classmates and instructor, and experiencing a think-tank of openness and acceptance towards each other’s thoughts, ideas, and experiences, then once again you have found the right place. I came into this four week experience expecting to learn about yoga, and by the end had learned that yoga taught me more than I could’ve ever imagined about myself.”

Alpha & Omega Yoga Instructor Training was one of the best choices I could have made in my life. Before enrolling, I had a strong interest in the practice yet mild understanding of Yoga and its philosophies. Sheri changed this from day one while making a vast amount of information comprehensive and fascinating. Every day was transformative and I am empowered and humbled by this experience as I know it is just the beginning of a blissful journey. Sheri goes beyond merely training Yoga instructors. Her dynamic curriculum thoroughly equips us to instruct and heal others while practicing the Yogic lifestyle so that we may be the change we would like to see in the world.
Ken Tichelbaut
“Offering both a strong grounding in the spiritual path of yoga as well as the instructor-led techniques for each pose, Sheri is able to guide and mentor students of all levels on their pathways toward becoming proficient yoga teachers. Through her generous spirit and deep experience, combined with well tested teaching materials, anatomy, breathing, poses, and the rich history of yoga, Sheri has developed a professional approach that is both cost and time effective in creating certified yoga instructors.”

I’m sure everyone has heard testimonials about how yoga has changed their life. From the Beatles, on. So I could go on about how yoga has changed MY life. I discovered yoga, in my middle age, as a group exercise instructor. It helped my through a nasty divorce. It helped me become a better fitness instructor. And then I started leading the classes. But until I met Sheri, it was mostly exercise. I had been going to workshops, trainings, classes – everything I could find – to enhance my practice, and to become a better instructor. But until I met Sheri, I was still a fitness instructor. Sheri gave me the knowledge and understanding of the principles of yoga, and more importantly – Sheri gave me the tools to becoming what I can be. The journey that I began with her this year has started me on a whole new path. To being a great instructor. To recognizing the light in others. To finding the love and peace within myself. Namaste

Sheri’s agenda is to make yoga available to everyone, not to promote a studio. She works very hard to make her teacher training affordable. Her 200hr teacher training showed me how that as a teacher, I am given a gift and to humble myself by sharing it with others. Through aryuveda and the eight limb path she taught me the beautiful lifestyle change that yoga has brought to my life. Her love and passion to teach us had touched my life forever. Can’t wait to go back!

The Alpha omega Yoga training was truly a great experience. Not only did I learn a lot about the philosophy of yoga but a lot about myself as well. Sheri’s training and instruction is very precise, and easy to understand. Sheri cares a lot about her students and will help wherever she can to make sure you are comfortable with your training and have the confidence to be a great instructor.

I have always known that the yoga is a gift to the world, sensing that it is much like a family or warm light, accepting with kindness and patience. I knew that when the time came for me to begin a personal journey into yoga, that it would be life shaping. This began from the moment I walked into Alpha Omega Yoga.

I met Chidanandi Sheri Cherokee in 2007 at an asana class in Dallas and practiced with her for a couple of years consistently. Even after I moved out of the city and carried on with my life as a professional cyclist, I never lost sight of what she taught me in those classes. The seed had already been planted. Six years later, with an interesting twist of circumstances, I was led me back to working with her in her 200 hour fast track program. I found it very fortunate to not only have come full circle back to where I began in yoga with her as a teacher, but also lucky to work one on one. The experiences there will be available in every moment of my being. The teachings at Alpha Omega have set the foundation for what has become a new existence in my life. The material we covered, the meditation, and studies were all remarkably enriching. This format is now carried on within my daily life.

Since I have left, the teachings I learned will develop with daily practice and grow in every area. The way that I view the world has altered. I feel an ease and sense of calmness, patience and joy that I was less in tune with before. I begin each morning with practice and find it carries with me throughout the day. Absorbed in my inner spirit, thoughts, and physical health, then branching out into the relationships with others. I can only imagine what more is to come. It is an education that has become the most important I’ve experienced. What a gift to be able share this with others as well.
