There are 9 modules available to study at your own convenience, you can find the immersions and trainings in the main calendar below.

What is the difference between an Immersion and a Training?

  1. Immersion: 3 day modules that are designed for all levels students and teachers alike.
  2. Training: 3-5 day modules trainings specifically designed for teachers or teachers in training.

Do these modules count toward anything?

What is Chromatic Yoga?

Developed by Matt Giordano, Chromatic grew from the desire to build a system of education for yoga teachers with community as a core value. Chromatic Yoga is not only a place to learn and grow as a teacher, but also a way to surround yourself with supportive, kindhearted yogis around the world. Community is one of our greatest sources of inspiration, and as Chromatic teachers we support one another and pull from one another’s strengths, which collectively enables us to have a greater foundation of knowledge to offer our students.

 

Chromatic Yoga is a community of yogis, movers, health enthusiasts, learners, supporters, and transformation seekers, who approach life and yoga from a place of Gratitude, Courage, and Curiosity. Self Awareness is both the goal and the way. Through breath, body, and mind, Chromatic Yogis seek to expand into their own potential. Step by Step, Action is key to maximize expansion and minimize wasted effort. No goal, vision, or dream is too big when you practice Gratitude for where you are now, have the Courage to move into the unknown, and readiness to take the small steps (Action) toward your potential.

“Chromatic training with Matt is one of the best things I have done for myself as a yoga teacher. Matt has created something special; teachers from all around the world gather and learn together, not only from Matt, but from each other. Everyone in the group has different strengths and it encourages discussions and learning opportunities based on the different view points.”

Anthony Tomasi
