Next Horizon Functional Yoga Teacher Training

About us




“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”   Marcel Proust

Our Next Horizon as yoga teachers is to continue along our path of discovery, reveling in the journey, and deepening our awareness. From this place, our perspective can shift to embrace a broader understanding of how to serve others through functional yoga and conscious movement.  Cultivate more effective skills in critical thinking, focused assessment, and expanded compassion as applied to anatomy, bio-mechanical movement, and yoga philosophy.

Experience learning from three powerful teachers – guiding you to live your yoga practice so you can teach with more integrity, wisdom, and passion.  Bea Doyle, Martha McQuaid, and Ted Cox combine their individual strengths and life experience into this potent 300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training program – creating a sustainable, comprehensive, no-nonsense approach to functional yoga.

Join our community of like-minded individuals who are committed to serving others and embracing a more authentic life.

YA RYT 200 certificate is a prerequisite for students seeking the YA RYT 300 registration.

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
