Teacher Training

The Nirguna Yoga 200-hour Teacher Training is an in-depth, comprehensive, and transformational yoga training program with an emphasis placed on mastering, both physically and through teaching, the Nirguna Yoga vinyasa sequences. Working from Nirguna Yoga’s comprehensive manual, trainees begin practice teaching on the first day. Trainees will have an opportunity to hone their skills and gain experiential teaching knowledge through a variety of exercises designed to help them master the essential elements of teaching, including:

    •  effective use of class dialogue and orchestration of voice
    •  applying principles of alignment
    •  class sequencing and theming
    •  use of safe and effective hands-on adjustments
    •  seeing and understanding the physical and energetic structure of the body
    •  working with injuries
    •  modifying yoga postures to address individual needs
  •  continued development of a supportive and dynamic commanding presence in your class

Also covered at the 200-hour level are: philosophy, meditation, Sanskrit, physical anatomy, subtle-body anatomy, and pranayama. A strong emphasis is placed on the study of ethical living as presented by Master Patanjali in the Yoga Sutra.

The 200-Hour Nirguna Yoga teacher training is for both seasoned and aspiring teachers, as well as for dedicated yoga students who wish to deepen their practice and further their understanding of yoga.

In order to achieve certification, trainees must to our satisfaction complete and submit all homework assignments, attend every session of the contact hours during the actual immersion program, achieve a passing grade on both the written and oral exams given during the contact hours of the training, and complete all of the assignments given during the training where applicable. Trainees who complete and who successfully meet these program requirements will receive a certificate of completion and the ability to register with the Yoga Alliance at the RYT-200 Level.

The 2019 teacher training is not yet scheduled.  Contact us if you are interested and we’ll keep you in the loop!
