About ISHTA Yoga Teacher Training

Become a Modern Yogi in an Ancient Lineage

ISHTA Yoga offers 200-Hour and 300-Hour Yoga Alliance certified teacher training programs, as well as a variety of specialty programs for teachers and trainees. We provide a uniquely modern, individualized, and integrated approach to the ancient science of yoga. The ISHTA lineage and teachings provide a comprehensive foundation for all aspects of yoga. We cover asana, the practice and teachings of the subtle and causal body anatomies, pranayama and kriya techniques, meditation, Tantric philosophy, and Ayurveda (the ancient Indian science of life). Through in-depth daily asana practice, posture labs, practice teaching, anatomy, and lectures on topics ranging from the energetic bodies to neurophysiology, the ISHTA-trained practitioner is able to approach and embrace yoga in all of its forms.

ISHTA Yoga trains its teachers to acquire and master the skills needed to excel in group classes of all levels, private lessonscorporate lessons, and specialty yoga classes. ISHTA trainees emerge from training feeling confident and ready to practice and teach what they have learned. ISHTA supports all personal journeys – from those simply looking to deepen their personal practice to those who envision yoga as a career.
