Shanti Yoga and Ayurveda 2018 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training

January 19

Learn to teach yoga and deepen your practice with this foundational 200 hour yoga teacher training program. This course is ideal for serious students of yoga and aspiring teachers.

The Shanti Yoga and Ayurveda 200-hour in-depth yoga teacher training is a 6 month long intensive program in which Larry, Shiya, Jessie, and guest lecturers will lead you as you learn and develop the skills, tools, knowledge and compassion to teach safe, energetic and empowering yoga classes. The training provides a blueprint for incorporating the physical, psychological, spiritual, and mystical aspects of yoga into modern life, without losing sight of the universal goal of the practice: liberation. Emphasizing interconnectedness and a non-dualistic view of life, this training will help you to dive deep into the practice that awakens within us a need to act compassionately and support all life on Earth. Participants will gain the skills to confidently achieve those goals for themselves, as well as the ability to teach others how to live in harmony.

This training program explores yoga philosophy and scriptures, ayurveda and applying ayurveda to teaching, Jyotish (Vedic Astrology), history of yoga, introduction to anatomy, practice teaching sessions, study groups, mentor guidance, some quizzes , midterm and final tests, and all aspects of the Shanti Yoga and Ayurveda Vinyasa practice.

We offer this training to help deepen your practice and to provide an opportunity to teach at the studio. You will graduate with all the tools needed to lead class if that is your intention.
