Trainees will also learn how to instruct different levels of practitioners, address individual bodies, and integrate valuable yogic wisdom into their teaching. After completion, participants will be eligible for 200 Hour RYT designation with the National Yoga Alliance. 


Rooted in two holistic systems of yoga, ParaYoga and the Himalayan Tradition, this training aims to empower participants with an understanding of ancient yoga theory, as well as modern mind-body science.  ParaYoga is widely respected for intelligently sequencing yoga postures and breath-work to yield specific physical and energetic effects. The Himalayan Tradition is one of the oldest living traditions of yoga still vibrant today. Both systems emphasize the importance of meditation in contemporary life.
