About Inspiration Yoga Institute

Inspiration Yoga Institute in nestled in the quaint town of Alachua Florida. Reconnect with nature. Our school is surrounded by hiking and biking trails, crystal springs, and many opportunities to find peace and serenity with the earth. The beach is just a few hours away. Be in nature, make heart to heart connections with community, enjoy pure and whole foods, all which help you embody oneness with the self. We are here to provide a nurturing environment and help you embody your most INSPIRED self.


Our teacher training is based on the desire to serve others. Making the decision to become a certified yoga teacher allows you to create a life where your work and spiritual practice can become one. Students from Inspiration Yoga Institute have found they are able to transform their original reason for beginning yoga into an intention to strengthen their spiritual practice. There is an intention behind every action we take in life. Pure intention is fundamental not just in yoga but to your entire life. It is our belief that with intention comes transformation. Connect to a deep source of inspiration as you gain the ability to guide others into theirs.

Richard and Krista are the co founders of the Inspiration Yoga Institute. They began teaching together in 2008, their synergy brings together the teachings of Yoga and Ayurveda. The creation of the Inspiration Yoga School is a dream come true for both of them, a place where you may learn a holistic approach to life based on the ancient principles of Yoga and Ayurveda.

Philosophy and Teaching styles

The journey in life is long. Inspiration Yoga Institutes certification programs give you the tools to grow in both you personal and professional life. The elements that create Inspiration Yoga Institute is our desire for personal relationships and an atmosphere of family and love. Our small and intimate school allows you to not only learn to become a yoga teacher but to learn to become your most complete and full self. We celebrate each meal, each moment and each student.

Our course includes the study of teachings asana, meditation, pranayama, anatomy, yogic anatomy, yogic history and philosophy. You will also learn about yogic diet and lifestyle, and Ayurveda. The program includes 200 hours (180 contact hours plus personal study.)


Daily meditation is a requirement of this 200 hour yoga course. Meditation teaches us to stop identifying with the body. Meditation is one of the Five Principles of Yoga. It is the practice by which there is constant observation of the mind.

It requires you to focus your mind at one point and make your mind still in order to perceive the 'self'. We feel meditation and daily journaling is essential to the training course. In the silence of the self is where you will cultivate your deepest inspiration to teach others.
