This one-year program is for dedicated Yoga students interested in deepening their personal understanding and practice of Classical Yoga, and would like to join a strong Yoga community. Half of the participants go on to teach, while the other half join to expand their personal sadhana (practice).

The YogaLife training program connects Yogic concepts to daily living so that you can be at your best through the stresses and challenges of modern life. The language, concepts and applications are clear and accessible to beginner and advanced students alike. Yoga is a theory-practice continuum. Theory remains gray without practice, and to help students practice meaningfully, we teach the theory behind what we are doing - not merely anatomy and physiology but also the spiritual-philosophical underpinnings of Yoga.

PROGRAM OVERVIEW
Our goal is to help guide you to learn the skills necessary to practice yoga completely and teach yoga effectively. The process of becoming a Yoga teacher is a personal journey, not to be entered into lightly. It requires a desire for introspection and inquiry. As you use the teachings of Yoga to better understand yourself, you begin to realize the teachings in daily life. A personal relationship and experience of Yoga are essential components of a realized practices that can be authentically shared with others.

In this program you will learn how to develop a daily yoga practice along with teaching skills. Teaching is not required for participation in the program, many people join just for their own personal development, but most do go on to teach or share yoga in some capacity with others. This a personalized program including:

One-to-one mentoring;

A Monthly seminar takes place on Thursday or Saturday. At the start of the program you will have a choice whether Thursday or Saturday is a better fit for you. Seminar includes Yoga technique, teaching methodology, anatomy and physiology, philosophy, and practicum opportunities (note: teaching is not a requirement of the program);

Understanding and practice of Classical Yoga, including Hatha (physical), Raja (meditation), Karma (work and actions), Bhakti (love and devotion) and Jnana (knowledge and wisdom);

Understanding and practice of the 8-Fold Path of Yoga: daily observances and restraints (yama and niyama), Yoga postures (asana), breathing (pranayama), sensory mastery (pratyahara), concentration (dharana), meditation (dhyana) and cognitive absorption/higher consciousness (samadhi).

and . . . Monthly workshops.

Creating Space for Yoga

By Tracey Miller

Jen Bukowski completed YogaLife Institute’s 200 hour training program and is a certified yoga instructor. She lives in Chester, NH with her husband and three kids in a 288-year-old farm house.

jen bukowski quote photoJen took yoga classes on and off for many years, but she never thought about being an instructor. But when her dental hygienist told her about her experience with the training program at YogaLife Institute, it planted a seed in Jen’s mind that she wanted to grow. But, with three kids three horses and a mini donkey to take care of, she had to wait until the timing was right. Two years later when they decided to sell the horses, life opened up and she was able to commit to the 200-hour training program.

Jen said she wasn’t sure if she wanted to teach, but what she really yearned for in her training was exploring the lifestyle and philosophy of yoga. Her focus was on self study and self realization.

In the past, the yoga classes she attended focused more on the technical aspect of the poses, but at YogaLife, they look at the spiritual aspects of yoga. “The instructors gave me a safe space to address what is holding me back,” she said. Yoga has taught her to trust herself and explore her boundaries. “I am loving the benefits of living yoga, which go way beyond just doing poses.”
