our training philosophy

01. Learn

Study the history and philosophy of different yoga paths, including Jnana, Bhakti, Raja, Karma and Hatha Yoga. Studies include the Yoga Sutras, Bhagavad Gita, Kriyas, Chakras, Meditation, Pranayama, Professionalism, and Anatomy.

02. Integrate

Become firmly grounded in daily practice of kriya, asana, pranayama, and meditation. Every day is filled with traditional yoga practices as you learn to take your yoga off the mat and into your every day life.

Start practice teaching on day one in a safe and supportive setting. Create a series of lesson plans that suit your style and students. Your teaching practicum will prepare you to immediately start teaching upon graduation, with on-going support from SOYA faculty.
