500 Hour Teacher Training Overview

500 Hour Teacher Training Overview

New Asanas
New Methods
New Perspectives

The living tradition of Shambhava Yoga gives you the tools to grow your practice and develop as a teacher and a student. This is the real deal, a tradition that can last a lifetime.

 

Set yourself apart as a yoga teacher with continuing education and advanced certification. Each level of training empowers you with new teaching techniques as you dive deeper into asana, methodology, philosophy and meditation. Our advanced curriculum builds upon the 200-hour training with 30 and 60-hour modules that allow you to train cumulatively towards a 500-hour certification, or for your own growth as a teacher.

“I would recommend this course without hesitation. It is all-encompassing. The spiritual element, the instruction of asana, anatomy and philosophy, the energy of the community all contribute to making this a truly complete experience.”
