The Intermediate Teacher Training course provides you with the opportunity to upgrade your teaching skills, deepen your practice, and expand your service by learning how to teach an Integral Yoga Level 2 class.  Develop your connection to the Integral Yoga community as you meet and spend time with other Integral Yoga teachers, share your experiences and ideas, and find creative solutions to challenges encountered in teaching.

Through this course you will be introduced to intermediate-level asana and variations, as well as pranayama and meditation practices. Deepen your knowledge and understanding of Raja Yoga through study of the Bhagavad Gita and strengthen your grounding in the universal teachings of Yoga philosophy.

Through insightful mentoring and feedback, your teaching skills will evolve beyond the basics to lead your students to a deeper and more profound experience in their practice.

Meet the Trainers

Swami Asokananda

Swami Asokananda, a monk since 1973, is one of Integral Yoga’s foremost teachers, known for his warmth, intelligence, and good humor. His teaching comes out of his own practice and experience, since he has absorbed the wisdom of his guru, Sri Swami Satchidananda, since the age of 19. While he enjoys sharing the practical wisdom of the Yogic philosophy (especially that of the great Indian scripture the Bhagavad Gita), he also loves his practice of Hatha Yoga and is one of our primary instructors for Intermediate and Advanced Hatha Yoga Teacher Training. In the past, he has served as the president of Satchidananda Ashram–Yogaville® and Integral Yoga® International; he is currently the president of the New York Integral Yoga Institute.
