Shri Yoga’s 200-hour Teacher Training blends excellence in technical instruction with a philosophical foundation that emphasizes a deepening connection to one’s own inner being as the source of awakening and transformation.

We view the path to becoming a yoga teacher as one of self-discovery–a path that will inspire you to go deep into your experience of yoga as a life practice, challenge you toward refined awareness and precision in asana practice and empower you with the skills needed to share the gifts of yoga with others.

Our unique and highly-regarded Yoga Alliance registered program (RYS-200)  is designed to immerse you in your own study and practice of our alignment-based, heart-centered hatha yoga in an atmosphere that sparks insight and understanding. Each student is guided step by step in all areas of effective  yoga teaching.
