The Integral Yoga Institute of New York will offer a hybrid (online and in-person options) for participation in Module 2 of 200-hour Integral Yoga Hatha Teacher Training from Sunday, September 08 2024. The pre-requisite for joining this module is successful completion of Integral Yoga 200-Hour Teacher Training Module 1: Yoga Immersion Program. A written entrance exam covering the material learned in Module 1 will demonstrate applicant’s readiness to continue with Module 2. Teachers who have already completed a 200-hour teacher training are welcome to audit Module 2 without the requirement to complete Module 1. If you are a certified teacher interested in auditing this course, please email [email protected] with a copy of your 200-hour certificate.

Module 2 provides experienced Yoga practitioners with the skills and knowledge to teach Hatha Yoga with confidence, clarity and compassion. Participants learn how to organize and lead Yoga classes in various settings, both online and in-person, and for diverse populations. Workshops in teaching methodology, ethics, and professional development will prepare trainees to establish themselves as professional Yoga instructors upon graduation.

Trainees will refine their knowledge of Yoga and develop essential teaching skills through the exploration of:

  • Asana, Kriya, Pranayama, Yoga Nidra and Meditation theory
  • Practical applications of anatomy and physiology
  • Teaching methodology
  • Safe and effective cueing, assists and adjustments
  • Introduction to Yoga for special populations
  • Sanskrit language for Yoga teachers
  • Participation in Satsang and Kirtan
  • Ethics of teaching Yoga, informed by study of Yama and Niyama
  • Setting up your practice as a professional Yoga instructor

Throughout Module 2, trainees will be engaged in regular practice teaching sessions, receiving individual, personalized feedback and guidance from the trainers. These practice sessions offer step-by-step preparation for the final exam, which is teaching the full Integral Yoga Level I class to your peers. Upon successful completion of both Modules 1 and 2, graduates will receive the 200-Hour Integral Yoga Teacher Certificate, and will be eligible to register with Yoga Alliance for the RYT 200 designation.

Graduates interested in teaching at IYI will have the option to continue developing their skills through a mentoring process with senior teachers. Teaching opportunities through IYI will be available to those who excel during the program. More information and registration here.
