Integrative Amrit Method

200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training

Energize Your Yoga Practice

I AM Yoga® Teacher Training is so much more than becoming certified as a yoga teacher.  It is an entry point for you to access the mysterious depths of yoga and experience its authentic origins.

What is I AM Yoga® Teacher Training?

The I AM Yoga® Teacher Training is an experiential training intensive designed to develop aspiring and advanced practitioners alike. Whether you are looking to deepen and energize your current practice or are seeking the guidance necessary to begin a profound yoga journey, this program provides a life-long foundation for you to practice from.

Training in the I AM Yoga® tradition provides master level guidance suited for every-body. Throughout our intensive, we will follow the Yoga Sutras as our roadmap while employing the specific tools of I AM Yoga® to bring the relevance of this ancient knowledge into our current experience. Not only will you leave equipped to practice yoga poses with precision and in the unified manner in which they were originally inspired, but, more importantly, you will leave empowered to carry the experience of integration into your daily life activities.

What makes I AM Yoga® Teacher Training unique?

In these times, yoga has become massively popular. Ancient practices previously unknown to the Western World have become ubiquitous and mainstream. What were once carefully kept secrets are now easily available. In modern yoga practice, what’s missing is not technique; we know what to do and where to learn more. What’s missing is how to approach the practice of yoga in a way that progressively awakens the experiential depths of peace and integration which it was born to unearth within each one of us. This is the unique contribution of the Integrative Amrit Method of Yoga.

“Yoga is not a practice that you do. It’s an experience that you have.”

~ Gurudev Shri Amritji
