200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training

Excellent for New Students And Certified Instructors Alike.

Our 200 hour yoga teacher training offers Yoga Alliance certification as well as an opportunity to deepen your own practice. The program is excellent for those taking their first teacher training because it includes grounding in the essentials of practice and philosophy that underlie all yoga. On the other hand, many of our participants are already teaching other yoga styles.  These experienced teachers often tell us that taking a teacher training in Kali Natha Yoga has deepened their understanding of all forms of yoga and prepared them to teach more deeply.

Residential and Weekend Programs.

We offer both a 200 hour yoga teacher training residential program in two 10-day modules, and a weekend 200 hour yoga teacher training intensive series that includes one weekend a month, for  six months. In either format, the 200 hour teacher training program adheres to the standards as set out by Yoga Alliance, requiring one hundred eighty contact hours and twenty non-contact hours. A contact hour is an in-person classroom hour in the physical presence of a faculty member.

Training is divided into five educational categories.

The 200-hour yoga teacher training curriculum incorporates training hours that are divided into the following educational categories: Technique Training, Teaching Methodology, Anatomy, Yoga Philosophy, and Practicum. A minimum of seventy-five contact hours are Technique hours, with a focus on Kali Natha yoga asanas, pranayama, mudra, mantra and meditation. Guided practice of the yoga asanas and techniques, as well as training in how to teach them, are equally emphasized.

Includes yoga philosophies.

A minimum of twenty contact hours are designated Philosophy hours. This includes the study of yoga philosophies, including teachings from Ma Jaya, yoga lifestyle, and ethics for yoga teachers. The study of Ma Jaya’s book The 11 Karmic Spaces is introduced in the 200 hour Yoga teacher training program. The relationship between the teachings found in the 11 Karmic Spaces book and the practice of yoga asanas is emphasized.

Includes practice teaching.

A minimum of five contact hours are designated Practicum hours. This includes practice teaching. This 200 hour yoga teacher training program gives the trainees considerable time and practice to actively teach hatha yoga asanas and Kali Natha Yoga asanas alike.
