Registered Yoga Teacher Training Program - RYT200

Samyoga Institute provides a yoga teacher-training program approved by the Yoga Alliance at the 200-hour level. It prepares the practitioner to teach classes in a variety of settings and to a wide range of populations.

Samyoga Institute incorporates and integrates the vast body of therapeutic wisdom, which has been studied, practiced, and taught by Yoga practitioners throughout the ages. It draws from a wide range of traditions, all of which can be traced back to original source materials. At the same time, it seeks to create an understanding of this wisdom so it is applicable and useful for “householders” in the 21st Century while documenting its therapeutic value through modern science.

This program is open to anyone with a basic foundation in yoga (at least six months of a regular practice) and is especially suitable for anyone interested in a “whole person” approach to teaching and practice. Students will experience the elements of Yoga, Ayurveda, and Meditation, including asana, pranayama, mudras and mantras, body awareness, deep relaxation, guided imagery and yoga nidra while learning how they can be woven together in a way that maintains the integrity of the traditions while making yoga accessible to all. Students can complete this training program in ten months with weekend classes held monthly. It includes an internship under the direction of a professional mentor.
