Yoga Vidya In-Depth Studies & Teacher Training

Join us in creating more connection and upliftment in our hearts, homes and communities.

Our yoga teacher training and in-depth studies program is a path of personal progression and a return trip to joy!  

Committed to teaching people – not just postures – the Yoga Vidya approach will provide you with tools to deeply know and care for yourself, to skillfully fulfill your roles and responsibilities in the world, and to cultivate a deep appreciation for the beauty of this life.  

Upon completion of program requirements, you will receive 200hr yoga teacher certification and eligibility to register as an RYT 200 with Yoga Alliance.



Expand is the first module, for yoga students who love the practice and want to learn how to live yoga as part of their daily life. 

 If your interest is piqued about the benefits of yoga for 

  • managing energy
  • relating to yourself and the world around you with clarity and compassion
  • cultivating a more peaceful and discerning mind
  • maintaining ease of movement 

then you will find what you need over the duration of this module.

You will learn to prioritize yourself and your wellbeing, learning to balance your daily responsibilities with a consistent yoga practice. You’ll notice the time you make to practice pays for itself in decreased reactivity, improved stress management, increased joy and capacity to get things done. Not only will your mind be less tight, you’ll notice your physical body is stronger, more flexible, and less achy.

Integrative Approach: What happens in the body will influence the mind.  What is present in the mind will influence the body.  With the 8 limbs of yoga as a framework, we’re working from the outside-in and the inside-out in this module.  You’ll build greater steadiness and ease in the body, improve mental agility, and embrace the process of self discovery to remember your inherent wholeness.    

Mind: Learn powerful meditation practices to quiet the chatter of the mind, manage the influx of information and sensory bombardment, and enhance mental clarity. Cultivate a sense of inner peace, adaptability and resilience, finding grace through life’s ups and downs.

Body: Explore the art of embodiment through breath-led conscious movement.  Develop a deeper understanding of your body’s capabilities and limitations, fostering a sustainable yoga practice that supports longevity and vitality.

Spirit: Get to know the subtlest part of yourself.  You are more than your past experiences, current state and ever-changing roles, relationships and emotions.

You’ll learn how to design and sustain a home yoga practice including meditation, mantra, pranayama, and asana individualized to your needs, interests and constitution. 

Explore the Yoga Sutras and Bhagavad Gita as they relate to living life with more joy, consideration and purpose. What are you at your subtlest? What is that part of you that observes and is not touched by fear? 


The second module of training takes you on a journey from the physical body to the more subtle aspects of self.

  • Appreciate the wealth of the physical body
  • Observe the facility of the thinking mind
  • Explore the energy body
  • Build discernment and connect to inner wisdom
  • Remember the feeling of unconditional love and objectless joy

You will learn about the nervous system, meditation, and how to restore and direct your energy.  Learn to sequence yoga practices to create desired changes, first in yourself, then as a guide for others. 


The third module is an integration space for the teachings woven throughout the first two modules.

Here you will practice and demonstrate the skills to design and lead multi-level classes in varied environments.  Communicate with clarity and compassion as you guide others toward a fuller appreciation of their own power and potential. 

There will be anatomy lessons, as they relate to yoga asana and activities of daily living. We will explore the how and why of yoga cues, incorporating inclusive language and multi-modal teaching.  There will be a strong mentorship component.

You will have all the feedback and support you need to feel confident in developing your teaching voice.

Frequently asked questions

Do you offer online yoga teacher training?

Yes.  This 200hr in-depth studies and teacher training program is offered in a hybrid format.  This means you may participate in-person or via zoom livestream.  Synchronous participation in all sessions is required.  

What style of yoga will I learn to teach?

The Yoga Vidya Academy approach can be described as hatha yoga influenced by tantra.  Classes are characterized by attention to alignment, somatic inquiry in static poses, and incorporation of dynamic flowing sequences prioritizing breath quality and awareness.   Bandha, mudra, pranayama, mantra, and meditation are incorporated.  Rather than memorizing a predetermined sequence, you will learn sequencing principles and receive a class template which you can customize to create the conditions for the outcomes you seek to address.  

What is the tuition for this program?

We have several options for tuition.

  • Early Registration Option: $2,850 if paid in full 60 days prior to the start date of the program.

I have a conflict on one of the scheduled dates. Are make up opportunities available?

100% attendance and completion of all assignments are requirements for certification.  That said, we acknowledge that life happens and you may not be able to foresee every conflict.  Exceptions to the attendance policy can be accommodated on an individual basis provided prior communication and a commitment on the part of the trainee to complete assigned independent study or 1:1 work with a teaching assistant.

My body feels very tight and I have never tried doing arm balances before. Will I be able to participate?

A core tenet of this offering is that “We teach people, not just postures.”.  This means (in part) that we teach-and participants learn to teach-asana (posture) and movement variations in a scaffolded manner that meets each student where they are.  We are well versed in incorporating the use of props, pacing, and offering options to be responsive to individual needs within accessible group classes.

The course completely reshaped my approach to life. It taught me how to manage my body, thoughts, emotions, and relationships in ways I never expected.

I learned throughout the course that a core challenge I wanted to navigate was one of a personal nature: creating the requisite time, attention, and trust to turn inward and learn from myself.

– Laura

I am a clinical social worker and was very interested in how I could connect my yoga practice to helping the people I work for. The Yoga Vidya 200hr TT provided me with an array of options to choose from when I develop a treatment plan where mental health and physical health are key for recovery.

– Daniella

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this program and about you as a teacher. Your knowledge and wisdom is enlightening and the support, love, and non-judgment you provide for your students is something I really relished in and appreciated.
