Overview


Whether you want to deepen your own practice, learn how to share the gift of yoga with others or are already a yoga teacher desiring to continue your studies on this path, our comprehensive training programs offer the tools you need to take the next steps on your journey.  
All of our YTTs are Yoga Alliance approved, which is the registering body for yoga schools and yoga teachers.  Yoga Alliance sets the minimum standards that programs are expected to meet through practice and theory within a teacher training course. Once a student completes a training with a Yoga Alliance approved school, they are then eligible to register with Yoga Alliance as a certified yoga teacher. SchoolYoga Institute has been offering Yoga Alliance approved teacher training courses since 2002.


Basic 200 Hour Certification

We teach Sadhana Yoga: The Yoga of Spiritual Practice using the curriculum and facilitators of SchoolYoga Institute.   SchoolYoga Institute honors all traditions of yoga and has incorporated that into the 200-hr teacher training program’s two foundational sequences - an Ashtanga-based Vinyasa Flow and a Sivananda-based Hatha Flow – that together will allow students to develop any style of class they desire to teach.
