The Integral Yoga Institute of New York will host a hybrid 200-Hour Integral Yoga Hatha Teacher Training from July 10 – August 16, 2023 (Mondays and Wednesdays: 9:30am–1:30pm E.T.). This is a hybrid training offering options for both online and in-person classes. Participants may select to complete the entire training online, or as a combination of online and in-person experience. Monday classes are hybrid and Wednesday classes are online. All classes, both online and in-person, require live attendance for successful completion of Module 1 and for participants to be eligible to continue with Module 2 for the 200-hour teacher certification.
For over 40 years, Integral Yoga’s internationally respected training program has been continually developed and refined to meet the personal and professional Yogic needs of our participants. We provide a wide reaching foundation preparing trainees to develop their knowledge and personal practice of Yoga, and the essential skills for teaching Yoga. Graduates receive both a practical and a philosophical understanding of the full scope of Yoga teachings and practices.
Module 1: Yoga Immersion Program
“Yoga” means “union” in the ancient Sanskrit language. It is a perfect description of the Integral Yoga system which synthesizes the various branches of Yoga into a comprehensive lifestyle system. The aim is to promote the harmonious development of every aspect of the individual. The results are subtle, profound, and measurable. The six branches of Integral Yoga are powerful tools to encourage wellness and self-mastery. Trainees will refine and deepen their personal practices based on an exploration of:
- Hatha Yoga (physical postures)
- Raja Yoga (psychology of mind)
- Karma Yoga (selfless service)
- Bhakti Yoga (devotion)
- Jñana Yoga (self-analysis)
- Japa Yoga (mantra repetition)
Module 1 encourages you to deepen your own practice through the study of Yoga as a complete lifestyle science. You will be immersed in an experience of living Yoga for personal and spiritual development. The curriculum includes asana and basic anatomy, pranayama, meditation, philosophy and study of sacred texts, and other traditional Yogic practices.
Upon graduation from Module 1, you will discover your personal practice has become firmly established and well grounded, and you will have the option to pursue 200-hour teacher certification by continuing your studies with Module 2: Yoga Teaching Essentials. More information and registration here.
