"Yoga… it is a living process that changes moment by moment, watching when we eat, how we eat, when we walk, how we walk, what we say, and how we say it. All these things must be present in us and we must be passionately interested in them all."

~ Vanda Scaravelli

About Us

Namaste' USA Scaravelli Yoga Teacher Training is a Yoga Alliance Registered School serving the North Dallas area.  We offer both 200 hour and 500 hour certification programs.


Our mission is to assist all students in their goals, whether to expand and deepen their yoga knowledge and practice or to become teachers themselves. In this way, both our local community and the wider world participate in and share the rewards of Vanda Scaravelli's unique insights into yoga practice.

We provide students with a comprehensive foundation in all aspects of teaching yoga. This foundation covers experiential, practical, and theoretical aspects of Yoga and its potential to bring about holistic transformation.

History of Namasté USA

Namasté USA Yoga Teacher Training is a Yoga Alliance Registered School serving the North Dallas area and offering 200 hour and 500 hour certifications. We have prepared many highly qualified yoga teachers who now teach yoga in many cities and states across the country as well as internationally.

Originally an affiliate school of Namasté International, Namasté USA was founded in 2003. Our roots extend through the lineage of Krishnamacharya, B.K.S. Iyengar, T.K.V. Desikachar, Vanda Scaravelli, and ultimately through Irene Beer, an internationally known yoga teacher and private student of Vanda's.

After working on her own with Vanda’s system, Irene developed a teacher training program, Namaste' International, together with her husband Bill Beer, M.D., and brought the training to Texas. Namaste' USA's co-founders Carol Stall and Vicki Johnson, worked closely with Bill and Irene during their trainings in Texas, and eventually founded the current Scaravelli-inspired yoga teacher training program to carry on Vanda Scaravelli's teachings here. Namaste' USA Yoga is currently the only teacher training school in the United States offering a focus on Scaravelli style yoga.

In 2010, Vicki Johnson retired from co-ownership of Namaste' USA Yoga and the school is now solely owned by Carol Stall. Vicki still participates in our community activities and continues to support the work of the school from behind the scenes.
