The Integral Yoga® Teachers Training Beginners Level 1 is designed for dedicated students with a year's experience of attending IY classes regularly. Other students with less than a year's experience may be accepted upon the recommendation from their IY teacher. Students considering joining Teacher training need to have a good foundation of practicing Hatha Yoga to their personal level (level 1 and above) and should be familiar with the basic structure of IY. Students are also asked to acknowledge the fact that IY was founded and based on the teachings of Sri Swami Satchidananda Maharaj.
The course is designed for those who are interested in deepening their own understanding and practice of yoga as well as wanting to teach Integral Yoga®. The course provides a wonderful opportunity for students interested in leading a more spiritual life or for those who want to gain some degree of mastery and control over undesirable habits and thought patterns. The course enables students to develop physically, emotionally, intellectually, socially and spiritually leading to experience of greater contentment, health, happiness and peace. Our comprehensive certification programs provide a strong foundation for personal and spiritual development, an appreciation for nurturing your own practice and the skills for you to become a knowledgeable and professional Yoga Teacher.
