200 Hour Teacher Training Program

pam quote photo

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.

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.


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 (the year-long program begins the first month you attend seminar) and the cost of our program is comparable to many other programs in the area.
