Beyond 200-hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training

At Beyond Yoga, we are dedicated to the ongoing development of yoga practitioners and teachers. Our in-depth program provides you with the knowledge and experience you need to:

  1. Deepen your practice for personal development: As a self-care and self-inquiry practice, yoga offers an abundance of techniques to better understand our unique path. Rooted in traditional yoga and designed for the contemporary practitioner, our program has been carefully prepared to guide you through a progression that will deepen your relationship with your strengths and inspirations while enhancing physical vitality and beyond; and
  2. Provide you with the knowledge and experience you need to share this practice with confidence: Whether you want to teach public classes or you want to include some aspects of yoga to your current offerings our programs will provide you with the knowledge you need to manifest your vision and beyond.

Yoga teacher training is an opportunity to enhance your life, therefore, the life of others. During this training, you will have ample practice time so that you can feel your body strengthen, lengthen, mobilize, stabilize and energize while learning to let go of mental holding patterns that limit your potential. Yoga is about self-awareness and from this platform we can teach others to do the same.

As a holistic approach that combines the harmonization of body, mind and emotions to finally experience the beauty of who we really are, yoga is available to all who are willing to invest the time and energy to go within. The more we integrate yoga, the more we know that life is not about finding our purpose, it is rather about living with purpose.
