“Within each one of us resides a silent but powerful spiritual potential.

The true purpose of becoming a teacher is to explore new avenues that are totally engaging and deeply fulfilling. In class, a teacher has a unique opportunity to create a resonating core group—a group that supports and creates an ideal environment where heart centered people can discover their own divine nature. This allows a teacher to access their own potential while empowering others to do the same. A sangha, a heart-centered core group, emerges from the teacher’s work.

Spiritual unfolding becomes the natural outcome for both teacher and student.”

~Gurudev Shri Amritji

Yoga was not an invention

It emerges from deep states of meditation.

This can only happen when the mind is in a state of equanimity and the inner intelligence of the body is freed to carry out its evolutionary functions.

This advanced training progressively cultivates an inner attunement to Prana [intelligent life energy] to “consciously cross-over” from physical yoga to energy yoga; from sitting meditation–to experiencing life as Meditation in Motion.

Supportive Course Structuring

Designed Specifically for Your Success

Sometimes we start online courses but lose the momentum needed to finish or the attention to fully absorb the material. This is why we offer our 500-Hour Yoga Alliance Teacher Training as a hybrid of self-paced learning and live online sessions with the added components of mentorship and community.

As the pace of life speeds up, it’s easy to get busy and distracted despite our sincerest desires to study, learn and practice. If there’s no one holding us accountable, it’s only natural that our attention and energy gravitate towards what’s urgent or distracting.

We are here to help keep you on track, answer questions and offer guidance along the way.

Through live, interactive sessions, you’ll have the opportunity to share and learn from senior training faculty members and your fellow participants. Together, we will create intentions, understand the nuanced facets teaching and practicing I AM Yoga® and most of all, connect with like-minded individuals.

Mentorship provides clear, individualized insight and understanding of what’s possible for you as a practitioner and facilitator. Experience powerful learning, connected community and begin your path of certification to become an expertly trained facilitator.
