The House of Yogi- March-July 2021 Yoga Teacher Training
Expand Your Knowledge + Deepen Your Practice + Learn to Teach with Rachel Schaerer

As Rachel evolves so does the content of each course.  She likes to see where the group takes it in some contemplation and conversation to make it a more fluid and rich experience for everyone!  We meet every other weekend and the week’s between, you will have practices/homework to read, journal, meditate.  She spritzes in fun quizzes throughout the program to test your knowledge and keep your mind sharp. 
For those who aren’t interested in the teacher certification but still long to delve deeper into yoga, we offer an opportunity to sign up for individual sessions (each weekend is a session).  We’ve had many requests for this opportunity and are happy to now offer a unique yoga program that does both! Reach out to Rachel at to inquire.

The House of Yogi’s highly regarded 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training in San Diego will equip you with the knowledge, skills, and practice that you need to both deepen your practice and confidently share yoga with others. Throughout this practical and comprehensive training we will focus on the fundamentals of anatomy, sequencing an intelligent class, hands-on assists, yoga history, finding your voice as a teacher, and more!  Rachel  likes to call the program an inside out and outside in course.

Nicole Mullins – Working with the Yoga Wall

Nicole has been a physical therapist for over 20 years and has worked in private clinics, hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, and outpatient clinics, exposing me to a wide array of orthopedic, neurological, and complex medical conditions. She prides herself in being able to meet your body where it’s at each day and develop a specific treatment protocol to meet your individual goals.

It’s important to Nicole to stay as educated as possible on the body and I’m constantly taking courses to enhance my knowledge base. Here are my current certifications and qualifications:

  • MPT or Masters in Physical Therapy – 6 years of formal schooling and am board certified to help heal your physical injuries
  • C-IAYT or Certification from the International Association of Yoga Therapists – Certified and trained to help you use yoga therapeutically to heal your ailments (most yoga teachers are only qualified to teach poses, not do therapeutic bodywork).
  • E-RYT or Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher – Teach yoga instructors how to take their classes to the next level and help their students heal therapeutically.
  • Visceral Manipulation – Identify and treat subtle restrictions in the body that lead to your pain.

Combining physical therapy, yoga, and visceral manipulation allows her to access the wisdom in all three modalities and offer a unique and comprehensive approach to healing.
