This program is approved by the Yoga Institute of Mumbai, India, to train instructors and promote a unique system of teaching Yoga philosophy. Classical texts such as the Yoga Sutras, Bhagavad Gita and Upanishads are utilized, with interpretations to suit a western culture when appropriate. This program emphasizes the "living of Yoga" and thereby brings personal transformation to those who are ready and willing. We believe that those individuals who live their Yoga make the best Yoga instructors. The YogaLife Institute programs are certified programs of the Yoga Alliance at the 200/500 hour level.
Enrollment is ongoing and the cost of our program is comparable to many other programs in the area. For more information, contact The Yogalife Institute New Hampshire at 603-969-8968, or Email Us.
