About This Training:

Overview

Our 300-hour yoga teacher training program offers yoga teachers from all traditions and backgrounds the opportunity to advance their studies and deepen their practice in a truly meaningful and transformative way.

  • Systematic relaxation
  • Meditation
  • Deeper dimensions of yoga philosophy

Whether you wish to develop your skills for teaching yoga classes, or broaden your personal application of yoga through an advanced teacher training course, our 300-hour program is an excellent way to become proficient in concepts initially touched upon in 200-hour yoga teacher training courses.

Accreditation

The Himalayan Institute is fully accredited by Yoga Alliance as a Registered Yoga School.

Program Structure: 3 Segments

Due to the unique needs of our current time, our 2022 300-hour yoga teacher training program will consist of three online segments. Completion of all three segments is required prior to graduation from the program. This highly experiential online format gives you the opportunity to participate in an intensive course of study and practice from the comfort of your own home while maintaining the deeply transformative benefit of the program. You will join a community of teachers and practitioners from all over the world connected by the yoga tradition.

Please note that, at this time, we are unsure of the program format for 2023, but will most likely offer a combination of in-person and online participation.
