Yoga Teacher Training Introduction
Imagine yourself teaching a yoga class. You move around the room with confidence, giving each student individual attention and guidance. One student came in with whiplash – you give him specific poses to keep him safe and help him heal.

Across the room, another student kicks up into headstand unassisted – for the first time ever. She’s all smiles and excitement.

If you’ve never taught yoga before, you can’t imagine how rewarding it can be. There’s nothing that quite matches the good feeling of helping another human being live a happy, healthy, pain-free life.

The 200-hour course in the College of Purna Yoga is the first step to making that dream a reality. Then the 300-hour course takes you deeper… gives you more tools for helping your students… gives you the confidence of knowing you’re one of the best teachers out there.

No other teacher training program brings together all the aspects of yoga. In the Foundation Level course, you will…

Build strength and flexibility, and heal injuries. Harness the detail and elegance of the physical practice of asana and create amazing results in your own body.
Find peace and joy in all life’s experiences. Explore the natural energetics of the body, mind and spirit to create a calm mind amidst the whirlwind of life.
Gain powerful insights you can use in daily life. Ancient yogic philosophy is astonishingly relevant even in our modern world!
Cultivate energy and vibrant health. Discover the surprising link between yoga and nutrition.
Eliminate what is holding you back. Create a lifestyle that supports your practice and your growth.
When you put these powerful tools to work in your own life, you empower your students to do the same. This aspect of the training alone will put you in the top 5% of yoga teachers in the world.
