Training Programs

Yoga Shakti’s Teacher Training Program and Advanced Yoga Studies is intended for yoga practitioners who seek an understanding and internal experience of the traditional and authentic aspects of yoga.  From the philosophy, practices and underlying concepts of yoga to the history of the ancient Vedic and yogic culture, the course has been designed to help students develop not just into well-rounded yoga teachers, but internally balanced human beings.  Through a process of self-discovery, students learn to incorporate the subtleties of the yogic teachings into their daily lives, enabling them to build inner strength and experience glimpses of the self-realization that is the true gift of yoga.  Yoga Shakti’s community oriented and supportive environment establishes a solid foundation upon which the internal yogic journey can flourish.

Our training is divided into two programs – foundational and advanced. Completion of both will allow graduates to  register with the Yoga Alliance at the 500 Hour level.  By the completion of these courses, graduates will not only have learned about yoga, but have become better yogis: human beings capable of being balanced, happy, free and accomplished.  Graduates will also have access to further study tools, mentoring, and assistant teaching opportunities to hone their skills as instructors.  The curriculum’s emphasis on experiential education and practical application, rather than memorization of information, ensures that graduates are as prepared for a successful teaching career as they are for a successful yogic life.

The 200 Hour program provides a solid foundation in the structure and practice of poses and prepares the student to teach.  Over the course of the six month, 200 Hour program we build on this foundation and delve deeper into more advanced class sequencing, workshop development, and further study in the anatomy and physiology of yoga.  We also explore the more subtle teachings of yoga with Sanskrit, chants and mantras, pranayama and meditation. CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS…

The 500 hour program offers an additional 300 hours of training designed for further your study after graduation from our 200 hour program. This training allows teachers to develop their creativity and intuition in the teaching process as well as further their knowledge of the physical and spiritual aspects of yoga. The goal of the training is to facilitate the development of exceptional yoga teachers capable of applying their wealth of knowledge of the physical, theoretical and experiential aspects of the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of Yoga to effortlessly and confidently take students into the journey of their practice. Through the invaluable training of the internal practices of yoga, pranayama and meditation, you will have the tools to grow as a yogi and the training to share that amazing journey and inspire others. Special guest teacher, Master Yogi Jnana Nanda Bharati, will join us for specific aspects of the training and transport us to experience yoga as the ancient seers intended. CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS…
