Yoga translates as unity. Life is ever-changing, as are we. The true essence of yoga is an ongoing exploration and quest for unity. As we change, our needs change also. As the world changes, what our students need also changes. It is one thing to remember a sequence and teach a safe and effective class, but you must continue to do the work of personal development.
As the science and spirituality of yoga evolve, it is essential to remain a student of your craft and continually seek new insights and wisdom. An advanced professional yoga teacher stands out as a community leader, a healer, and a creative force.
In this 300 hour immersive course you will have the opportunity to assist, to create sequences, and to amplify your healing art in class. We will emphasize the importance of the art of touch, the art of teaching, sequencing, and finding your voice. There will be a strong emphasis on Yoga Therapeutics and how to view all yoga as a form of therapy. This lens will transform your teaching and truly give you the tools to be a space-holder and healer.

Ancient Wisdom

To guide the process of personal transformation we explore ancient texts such as the Yoga Sutras, Bhagavad Gita, Shamanism, Buddhist scriptures, and Native American texts. Using each of these paths as a portal, we will tap into our own source of creation and expression. Through our personal investigation and experimentation in the vast landscape of the sacred, we come to experience the wisdom and truth of these texts through personal reflection. These ancient discoveries live as wisdom to guide our actions in this world; learning enough to confidently share these teachings with others is a sacred gift.
Our trainings are arranged in four cycles, following the four cardinal directions based on the Shamanic Medicine Wheel. We ask the guardian spirits to guide a cycle of release, understanding, growth, and finally, empowerment. Together we create a space that reveals our wisdom within and accelerates the realization of our life’s purpose.

A Day in the Life

During this advanced 25 day training, we ask participants to embrace all aspects of the yogic lifestyle, such as observing a vegetarian diet, living free from the distractions of other substances, and moving away from the internet and unnecessary communications with the external world. We ask for your dedication, commitment, and surrender, as well as immersion in our spiritual community for the duration of the training. Open yourself to what is there, leave all expectations behind and enter the enlightened perspective and sacred landscape of your training with an open heart – whatever comes will be exactly what you need.

This 300-hr training is a beautiful experience that is much more than just gaining your certification. As well as deepening your knowledge and connection with your Self and community, one of the main focuses of the program is an expansion of our own sacred consciousness.

The path will ask for self-reflection, growth, and discipline.

Please submit a letter to info@schoolyogainstitute.com to request an interview with our team to review qualifications. This is particularly geared toward those who are interested in deepening their yoga, spiritual, and healing art practice and may be beneficial to those who are not concerned about the RYT hours and certification.

Sense of Community

At School Yoga Institute, everyone is wholeheartedly accepted and encouraged. We create and hold space where participants feel safe and comfortable. We support the growth and expansion of people’s horizons — physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and energetically. As a group, a community, a tribe, and an extended family, we practice and learn to let go. We allow the world to unfold before us without reaction or judgment.

Our intention is to guide aspirants through their own healing journey in order to better prepare them for healing others, letting go of anything that holds them back from what their hearts are truly called to. Together we unveil the true essence and sweet nectar of life.
