Participating in a yoga teacher training will transform your practice and empower you to teach. It’s the beginning of a lifestyle and a career rooted in service to helping others. This 200 hour yoga teacher training is a unique blend of Hatha and Vinyasa Yoga.
Your instructors Autumns Adams, RYT 500, Founder of Ambuja Yoga and Toni Larson, RYT 500 founder Barefoot BLISS Yoga are both like-minded in life and in their teachings.
The training will take place at Yoga Indigo, a gorgeous downtown studio in beautiful Bend, Oregon. Nearby Drake Park provides outdoor walking trails, which allow us to take our classes outside when called. Autumn and Toni are passionate about training students in a fun, creative and playful way. They bring a very easy and welcoming energy into their teachings and teach in a way that helps all types of learners thrive.
You will be empowered and encouraged to teach in a way that aligns with your authentic self. You will receive a strong foundation in alignment, anatomy and sequencing, so you can design classes that both you and your students will enjoy, whether they are more restorative or powerful in nature.
Beyond our in person training you will have access to monthly group mentorship calls with Autumn and Toni.

Your Oregon 200 Hr. Yoga Teacher Training Instructors
Autumn Adams E-RYT 200, RYT 500, YACEP
Autumn founded Ambuja Yoga in 2014 as a way to not only share her love of yoga, travel & adventure but as a way to cultivate intention, courage and grace in her students. She hopes her students will leave with a feeling of purpose and with the ability to invite their intention into all aspects of their lives.
Autumn encourages her students to be conscious creators… to have the courage to take risks (both big and small), to listen deeply to their body, to their gut, to their heart and the grace to “roll with the punches” on this messy path we call life. Learn more about Ambuja Yoga by reading this letter from Autumn, founder of Ambuja Yoga.
Toni Larson E-RYT 200, RYT 500, YACEP
Nature moves Toni and touches her heart. She practices yoga to stay grounded, happy, healthy, balanced and connected to Spirit. This keeps her doing the things she loves most in life. All things rooted in love, this is the recipe for life.
Her teaching provides a relaxed atmosphere. She is a believer in sustainable yoga and teaches with a very real and down to earth style. Recognizing that each person’s body, range of motion, strength and energy is different, she creates a unique and playful space so students can approach their practice with wisdom, courage and most importantly unconditional love. Toni has been teaching yoga for over 7 years, a Retreat Leader, Shamanic Mentor and is the Founder of Barefoot Bliss Yoga.
The best decision of my life. Back to Nature Retreat last July ignited that beautiful spark in me spiritually. I’ve never felt so liberated and good about myself. Then I signed up for the 200hr YTT just this August. Autumn and Toni are such wonderful and inspiring people I met in my entire life. I learned so much about yoga and the in-depth aspect of it. There was so much more to it than the asanas we see everywhere or on social media. I’m so grateful to be a part of Ambuja Yoga’s events. I’m already thinking of joining an upcoming retreat soon. Much love and respect to you Autumn. ❤️❤️❤️
Rosalee, Back to Nature Yoga Retreat 2017 & 200 Hr. Yoga Teacher Training 2017
Thank you for everything you did to make this retreat happen. I appreciate the energy and effort you put into both manage logistics and to create a safe and positive space to build community. I’ve grown in awareness of myself and my desire to find community and serve others and I appreciated the sense of community created by shared practice and intentional encouragement by our lovely instructors Autumn & Toni.
Meghan L., Back to Nature Yoga Retreat 2017
I loved Autumn & Toni. So caring, genuine and patient. This is my first yoga retreat and I’m new to yoga. You both made me feel so comfortable and welcomed. The only suggestion I have is to add one more day. I feel like this was/is life-changing for me. I honestly feel and believe that I am enough, I do enough and I love myself. I learned to be kind, gentle, and patient with myself.
Linda B., Back to Nature Yoga Retreat 2017
Autumn and Toni your pure selves reflected in your teaching. I had some deep realizations this retreat about some of my relationships. The spiritual aspect added to this retreat was absolutely amazing. I also cannot wait to bring the new knowledge into my own classes to best assist/guide my students safely. Sustainable yoga! I have so much gratitude for this place, retreat, community, both Autumn and Toni I thank you both for all that you are and all that you shared.
Taira S., Back to Nature Yoga Retreat 2017
