This training speaks intelligently to the traditions and skill sets necessary for infusing your life with intentionYoga is more than deepening your asana practice. We believe yoga is a portal that awakens and connects you to a more meaningful life.

Each detail of our 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training is designed to support you through an epic journey of self-inquiry, hard skill building, and strengthening of your total health and wellness knowledge. You will graduate with skills to lead with wisdom and integrity both on or off the mat.

PROGRAM STRUCTURE + CURRICULUM

Namaste’s 200 Hour Program is broken into two 100 Hour Modules, to be taken sequentially.

MODULE I: IMMERSION

Students will immerse in their own practice and the study of yoga. You will read classic yogic texts, discuss philosophy and the origins of the practice and how these values can be applied to modern living. You will also dissect asana alignment, learn the foundations of the physical practice and how to a create safe and sustainable practice. Expect to log a lot of hours on your mat, both at the studio and at home.

MODULE II: TEACHER TRAINING

In this Module, you will build on the foundation created in Module I and begin to look at the practice of yoga through the lens of the teacher. You will learn about sequencing, curriculum building and modifying practice for various types of practitioners. You will also learn translatable skills of public speaking, articulating verbal cues and holding space. You will discuss ethics and bring to life the pillars of yoga philosophy. Ample space will be given to practice these skills in the safe environment of your peer class mates. Expect to continue your studentship on your mat as well as enter the classroom as an observer.
