200-Hour Yoga Alliance Certified Program
October 19th-November 14th, 2020
iLa Yoga Studio, Wenatchee Washington
Our program takes an in-depth look into inquiry-based movement application through the practice of yoga. Designed and developed by Bridget and Dakota Shae, founders of iLa Yoga®, it is accessible to all levels of practitioners. This training empowers each student to find their yoga, creates a safe and welcoming space to learn, and delivers comprehensive knowledge and tools needed to begin the journey into teaching.
Finding and sharing your truth requires tapping into the innate teacher within. Our program delivers tools to access that truth by laying the foundation of a technically sound practice, layered with the invaluable ability to tap into the inquiry of being.
This approach to teaching lends to more than just the cookie cutter regurgitation of cues in a standardized flow, but rather the ability to teach from a place of inner wisdom.
In addition to our core teachings, this training also covers yogic elements designed to enhance and empower you and/or your teachings as your lifelong journey through this practice unfolds. Some elements covered include: meditation, flow of the breath and body through vinyasa, relaxation techniques, sequencing, chanting, business of yoga, playlist development, communication techniques, and lots more.
An innovator in the field of inquiry-based learning, Bridget is a leader in encouraging students to find their truth through the practice of yoga. Bridget co-founded iLa Yoga™ in 2012 and is the Director of iLa Yoga™ School, accredited by the Yoga Alliance. She and her partner, Dakota, lead trainings and retreats around the world.
Bridget has been a student of the practice since 2003, and began teaching in 2008 having studied with renowned teachers including Don and Amba Stapleton, Kevin Courtney, Thomas Droge and Donte Qunine. Bridget teaches a diverse array of practices, and shares her knowledge as an expansive approach to healing. Her studies and commitment to the practice have led to original inspirations, methods, and practices, delivering students with the ability to tap into their inner wisdom and find their own path through this ancient practice. Bridget has taught thousands of students from around the world including Europe, the Middle East, Central America, South America, North America, and recently led one of the first legal teacher training programs in Saudi Arabia.

With a focus on practical application, Dakota’s teachings center around a whole system approach to achieving optimal health and wellness. Dakota co-founded iLa Yoga™ in 2012 and is the Assistant Director of iLa Yoga™ School accredited by the Yoga Alliance, alongside his partner, Bridget.
Dakota’s launch into the vast domain of yoga began in 2006 stemming from an interest in exploring peak physical performance. As a lifelong athlete, he found undeniable physical benefits from a regular practice that, over the years, has evolved into a daily discovery of what is needed to live a happy, healthy life. In addition to his yoga practice and education, studies in breathing techniques, ice therapy, meditation and endurance training have generated a diverse outlook on being well. From this approach, Dakota uses the practice of yoga as the main vehicle to awareness in discovering what practices are most beneficial on any given day. His teachings offer the opportunity to bring about radical self-care and change through the practice of awareness and consistent practice.
A calm, yet passionate demeanor, contribute to the vibrant and inspiring teacher that he is. Dakota cares deeply about equipping each of his students with the tools they need most to live their best life.
