The 200 hr. Inner Power Yoga® Training is a comprehensive course in authentic yoga culture.
It is designed to deepen your personal practice, enrich your understanding of yoga history and philosophy, and prepare you as a dynamic and competent yoga teacher.
The training is divided into four 4 day intensives with thorough discussion and experiential learning of anatomy, sanskrit, sequencing, Ayurveda, mythology, and yoga theory. Creative projects combined with a deep immersion into yoga asana offer each participant an opportunity to come into deeper contact with his or her true self and learn tools of optimal self-care and well being. This training is designed for those that want to teach yoga, those that don't want to teach but are looking to expand their practice and those that are somewhere in between.
