Sendatsu means leader or guide in Japanese, and Sendatsu Evolution refers to your transformation from being a bystander to your life to becoming the leader of your life. Sendatsu Evolution is a 200 hour multidisciplinary yoga teacher training that empowers you to facilitate change in your life and to inspire others to do the same.
The life cycle of a leader is a four step process: Initiation, Cultivation, Maturation and Separation. Self-study is the thread that weaves each step together.
The process begins with your initiation to the program and the lifestyle of svadhyaya, or self-study, in order to tap into your innate potential and expand beyond prior self-limiting thoughts and actions. Initiation creates the foundation for cultivation of new information and tools that are rooted in the Yoga Sutras, 8 Limbs of Yoga, Anatomy & Physiology, The Chakras, Ayurveda and Ethics. Your maturation involves putting tools into practice, creating and composing your own classes that honor your authentic voice and message. Finally, your separation includes a graduation ceremony and redefinition of the leader you’ve become throughout the training.
By the time you reach graduation, you will have created a manual to guide your teaching, be able to teach Vinyasa, Hatha, Yin, Restorative and Yoga Nidra, and be empowered as the leader of your life and able to inspire and shed light on that potential in others.
We know that the evolution towards becoming a leader is difficult–if it weren’t, everyone would do it! We are committed to providing you with the personal and professional resources to support your growth. Lead teacher, Leah Zaccaria, is a Yoga teacher, tax expert, and the owner of shefayoga Venice, shefayoga Roosevelt and hauteyoga Queen Anne. Your evolution as a teacher is enhanced by working one-on-one with Leah as well as with her expertly trained teachers from shefayoga Venice. Additional teachers to be announced soon.
Training will be held Saturday through Friday at shefayoga Venice. Unlimited yoga at shefayoga Venice during your training will deepen your personal practice as you cultivate the professional skills to become a fully empowered teacher and leader.

The sendatsu evolution training program was a beautifully intimate and connected experience. I didn’t just deeply connect to others within those few months, but I was brought back to myself. I’m so grateful to have had this opportunity cross my path, I couldn’t imagine any other way to start off my journey through yoga!
I’ve struggled with self-confidence and self-worth for as long as I can remember. However, having graduated from the Sendatsu Evolution 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training, I’ve never felt more confident in and sure of myself. The program helped me find my voice and the confidence to not only stand up as my authentic self at the front of a studio and teach a yoga class but to also show up as my authentic self in every aspect of my life.
Sendatsu teacher training was intense but so rewarding! I not only feel prepared and ready to start teaching yoga, I have transformed my relationship with myself through my practice thanks to the elements of self study that are part of this program. This program brings creativity and authenticity to every session making it such a unique experience. Not only is the curriculum great, but you learn and grow alongside some of the best teachers.
