There is a lot of emphasis on Yamas, Niyamas, Pranayama, concentration, meditation techniques and mindfulness. This comprehensive curriculum also includes Yoga philosophy including Yoga Sutras, Bhagavad Gita, yogic lifestyle and ethics, yogic diet, basic ayurveda, anatomy and physiology for yoga teachers and practitioners.

Beginner to intermediate level practitioners are welcome to take this course as well. Your teacher training journey with us is as much about deepening your own practice and individuality as it is about gaining the skills to teach others.
