200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training
If you’ve been wanting to enhance your knowledge of the physical postures of yoga, or simply been desiring greater insight into the underlying philosophy behind the poses and an understanding of how to translate that to each moment in life, you’ll find answers in our 200 hour yoga teacher training.
Our yoga teacher training is designed for those who want to share yoga with others in a studio setting as well as those who personally desire a more comprehensive understanding of yoga. You’ll learn details of the physical postures as well as how to take your practice off your mat. Even if you don’t intend to ever teach a yoga class, you’ll expand your awareness of the many ways the principles of yoga apply to everyday life and help you be more the person you want to be. And if you think you’d like to share the experience of yoga with others, we provide you with the information and experience you’ll need to lead a class safely, creatively and authentically.
We offer one of the most innovative, diverse and practical 200-hour yoga teacher training programs in the study of yoga. Our extensive curriculum draws on both traditional Eastern philosophy and conventional Western science in a unique approach that offers answers for those who desire more meaning in their demanding and confusing lives. We offer an array of teaching perspectives from specialists in their fields. You’ll learn not just the names and anatomy of the poses but how the underlying philosophy can translate to everyday life and bring unprecedented calm and authenticity to your every moment and interaction.
Urban Yoga is proud to be an accredited school of yoga through Yoga Alliance.
