About Shambhava Yoga ™ Teacher Training

We believe that yoga teacher training should be a life-changing experience. One of the first yoga schools in America, Shambhava Yoga™ has always emphasized that becoming a great teacher means becoming a great student. You don’t just learn how to teach yoga here, you learn how to deepen your practice and grow. Shambhava Yoga’s 200-hour, 500-hour, and specialty certifications are registered with the Yoga Alliance.

 

The journey begins with the 200-hour Level 1 yoga teacher training. The first half of the training builds the foundation. The curriculum includes the basics of safe and effective asana practice, anatomy, teaching methodology, and an in-depth study of 45 fundamental asanas. The second half of the training digs deeper and includes training in hands-on assists, verbal cueing, and more. Meditation, ethics, philosophy, and teaching styles are topics explored throughout the training. Through meditation, you lean to reach deeper inside and teach from a place of clarity and depth. When the training ends, you will have the tools you need to bring the practice into your life, and to help others do the same.

This training is for those seeking to attain the skills and knowledge needed to become a Shambhava yoga teacher. For those who wish to deepen their own knowledge of the practices of yoga, and not receive a teaching certificate, please discuss this option during the interview process. This foundations course is the basis for the 500-hour training and a prerequisite for Level 2 320-hour training.
