We strive for a comprehensive teaching of yoga, meditation and healthy living.

Curriculum

Holistic Yoga draws insights and gifts from various traditions that have contributed to yoga as a natural health and wellness system. Our RYT-200 Certification Program provides participants with a vast array of knowledge and tools which enable graduates to offer well-rounded and authentic classes. 

The philosophy of holistic yoga is to address all aspects of a person’s health…

mental, physical, & subtle.

While distinctive and contemporary, our approach is strongly rooted in the great teachings and literature that have been handed down through the generations. Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras serve as a philosophical backbone as we merge ancient wisdom with modern style and translation. We draw on many worldly traditions and natural health practices, including the philosophy and language of Sanskrit, the science of Ayurveda, modern medical theory and proof, as well as metaphysical energy models. An overall yogic lifestyle is emphasized, including diet, sustainability, mental attitude, and more! Selfless service and community support are woven into our programs, as we recognize the importance of cultural involvement and service. The quality education we provide will help you reach a higher level of self-awareness, compassion and community service.

 

The Yoga Asana and Art of Teaching emphasizes spinal alignment and  structural physical integrity. Participants will learn to guide flowing Hatha, Vinyasa, and Specialty Classes. In a moving meditation we build strength and endurance while at the same time creating a sense of calm and quiet. In this manner, yoga practice becomes an exquisite integration of breath, balance, strength, endurance, natural health and meditation.

At our international teacher training immersion programs, you can build a world community, while nurturing your mind, body and soul. 

 

The comparative teaching approach exposes students to many different methods and traditions so that they may each find their own unique style. Yoga in the Marketplace provides participants with information and resources to help them be successful in the business of yoga. Many students go on to choose a focused field of specialization while developing a professional yoga practice.

“My overall experience was phenomenal and beautiful. I feel as though I could not have asked for more. This was a life changing point in time (and space) and actually altered the continuum of my existence. There were no bad or negative experiences, and I found love and positivity in all that we had done together.”
