The 200-hour Uttara Yoga Teacher Training will guide you to embody the spiritual and physical teachings of yoga and skillfully and joyfully teach you how to guide others.

This program offers a unique and solid foundation for students and teachers who wish to increase their knowledge, skills and confidence in teaching yoga; deepen their living practice of yoga; and advance upon their spiritual path. This in-depth teacher training draws upon the streams of Hatha Yoga, Tantra, Kriya Yoga and Ayurveda, as well as the art of skillfully teaching the Santana Dharma (spiritual disciplines designed to awaken us to a life of joy, health and purpose). We will work together to create a sacred space in which all levels of student can participate and study the deeper teachings.
