The Sage Roots Apprenticeship is a Yoga Teacher Training Program taught by Brooke Sullivan & select guest teachers through The Wild Temple School of Yoga + Herbal Wisdom.

Yoga Alliance certified, this uniquely deep teacher training includes 850+ hours of practice and study, methodology, science, philosophy, and theory. The entire program is comprised of 100hr. modules, Tantric Hatha Yoga immersions rooted in Ayurveda & Vitalist Herbalism.

Modules are typically offered as 3-month immersions meeting weekly in The Wild Temple Classroom in Grass Valley, California. We also have a new Online School with the 200hr & 500hr programs being offered annually.

Additionally, once or sometimes twice a year, Wild Temple Yoga goes abroad, typically to India, for an intensive two-week yoga retreat covering the material of one of the advanced 100hr. modules.

“The Wild Temple is a shining gem in a very small town. A community of like-minded, wholesome people who are looking to make deep connections. The Wild temple School has brought me the knowledge to walk the earth with confidence and self-awareness. One of the main focuses of these rich teachings is “sukham and sthira,” or steadiness and ease. I have come to know that having these attributes as teacher will bring your students closer to comfort. The Wild Temple School has given me a solid foundation to share my knowledge of yoga with others. It has given me the confidence to teach, and the awareness to guide others deeper. I highly recommend all of the programs this school has to offer. And the director, Brooke Sullivan, illuminates every person she comes into contact with. She will give you a window into the infinite depths of your mind, body and soul.”
