The two-year Teacher Training Program is approximately 150 course hours over three 9-week sessions (Fall, Winter and Spring) a year. Weekly classes, from 3 – 5 p.m. Tuesdays, cover asanas, anatomy and philosophy.

The first year of the program includes your participation in a Level 1 course at the Institute. In the second year you will be placed as an observer in a Level 1 class, apprenticing with a faculty member as you learn to assist a Level 1 class.

In addition, your training includes Saturday / Sunday Workshops offered by Institute faculty. We also strongly encourage you to attend Sutra Study classes on Friday afternoons.

Trainees are expected to attend Pranayama classes over the two- year period and major Guest Teacher Workshops offered by the Institute. You are also expected to continue your own study and practice at Level 3 and 4 at the Institute. The costs of these classes and Guest Workshops are not included in your Teacher Training fees.

Following completion of the Teacher Training Program, students are eligible to participate in the Continuing Education Program at the Institute.
