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.

“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.

Integral Yoga 200-Hour Teacher Training, Module 1: Yoga Immersion 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 growth. The curriculum includes asana and basic anatomy, pranayama, meditation, philosophy and study of sacred texts, and other traditional Yogic practices.

The six branches of Integral Yoga are powerful tools to encourage wellness and self-mastery. You will refine and deepen your 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 provides the fundamentals you need to skillfully cultivate your own practice with an understanding grounded in the science of Yoga.  Deepening your personal practice is the first step to becoming a certified Yoga teacher and our modular program is designed to guide you every step of the way.  Module 1 is ideal for Yoga enthusiasts and dedicated practitioners seeking to become immersed in the living tradition of Yoga.

Upon completion of Module 1, those interested in pursuing 200-hour teacher certification recognized by Yoga Alliance may continue the journey to Module 2, Yoga Teaching Essentials.  This modular training system allows you the flexibility to pursue certification at your own pace, with options for both online and in-person learning experience.
