Teacher Certification requires completion of all classes, lectures, assignments, quizzes, community classes, and final reflections.  Graduates will participate in our internship program by teaching donation-based classes to support the community.


What students are saying - "I cannot express how much yoga teacher training changed my life. It changed me. I am forever grateful for making the choice to be curious and diving deeper into the yoga teachings. You never know what will show up, but I can assure you, you won't regret it. If you are just a little curious, and feel that this may be the moment, take the leap and allow yourself to grow, to expand." -Celeste Peixe.

Dasha Mahavidya Master Module Immersion
With Claire & Karen 

January 11-16 2023

Join us for a 6-day/5-night immersion in nature in Blowing Rock, NC.  This is the inaugural offering at Moon Rising Retreat Center.


In tantra the highest seat of self is the divine feminine. The Dasha Mahavidyas are the Ten Goddesses of Transcendent Wisdom which represent the devotional path in her 10 wisdom goddess forms. The goddesses are radiantly powerful archetypes who oversee a range of cosmic processes. The goddess forms challenge us to look deeper and represent different aspects of Self. The teachings of the Dasha Mahavidyas are the oldest form of sadhana and are shared as secret teachings within the tantric path. These sacred teachings lead to clear perception, increased intuition, and great evolution of oneself, connecting us to our most authentic power.


Students will receive initiation into an advanced personal sadhana for 100 days, invoking the qualities of the Dasha Mahavidyas into their lives, through wisdom of form, fundamental qualities of each Goddess, the chakra, and mantra associated with each goddess.
We become the goddess as her power comes to work through us.


This course will be led by Sattva Yoga Master Teachers Claire Zovko.

The immersion will include lodging and two (2) vegetarian meals a day. 


Module Requirements:

To receive the Dasha Mahavidya personal sadhana student must have a dedicated mediation and yoga practice for a minimum of one year to take part in these evolutionary teachings.



Shared Room - $1,599 

Private Room - $1,699

Private Room w/ Private Bath - $1,799 (1 remaining)

When I met Claire and took her Yin class for the first time, I knew Lighthouse Yoga was the place where I belonged. I immediately felt a loving connection with her. Seeing her was like seeing a piece of myself. Her energy is contagious and graces all those who she comes into contact with. I rapidly fell deep into the practice and just kept yearning for more. Claire recognized I was ready for teacher training when I had not fully seen it in myself. Yoga teacher training was life changing for me. Its helped me embrace who I have always truly been, allowed me to see my spiritual gifts, educated me on how to heal, and guided me towards my life's purpose. I could not be more grateful for Claire and the experiences I have received and achieved through Lighthouse Yoga. Lighthouse is not only a studio but a place where family comes together.

-Clara Suarez

A few years ago, I was waiting for the perfect invitation to complete 200-hour yoga teacher training. My intention was so that I would be qualified to teach yoga for 12 step recovery (Y12sr). When It was announced that Claire Z would be leading a 200-hour training, I knew that was for me. I liked Claire and her compassionate no nonsense approach to teaching. I turned 70 during the training and cannot put into words the impact training had on me and my life. When an opportunity arises to be in a class or group gathering with Claire, I jump on it because I trust Claire implicitly and depend on her for my safety and security and health. Whatever she does, it is with enthusiasm, great detail and an immense open heart. This includes the trip I took with her to Peru and subsequently to India. While the weather and altitude in Peru were not my best friends, the experience as a whole was growth filled and nourishing. I learned about self-care and appreciate the detail and attention Claire put into our trip. Anywhere Claire teaches, I feel confident to follow. Take the leap!
