Our Yoga Teacher Training program has been training teachers and changing lives since 1981. The training provides a strong foundation for personal and spiritual development, as well as the skills necessary to become a confident, knowledgeable Yoga instructor. Whether you want to teach others or take your own practice to a deeper level, this training will provide you with an authentic experience of living Yoga.
Integral Yoga uses an inward, spiritually-focused form of Hatha Yoga to lead students to an experience of inner peace and greater awareness. To prepare teachers to lead students inward, our Yoga Teacher Training program offers a balance of theory and practice on a broad range of topics. Graduates are certified to teach Beginner Level Hatha Yoga and are qualified to register with Yoga Alliance as a RYT-200.
