Yoga Teacher Training at Yam

Upcoming Programs 


YAM 200hr Yoga Teacher Training Program

We are now accepting applications for our 2019- 200 Hour Summer Teacher Training (offering well over 300 hours of education including class time, mentorship, and more). This immersive experience offers a philosophical and experiential approach to hatha yoga: How it works, why it works and how to teach from a uniquely embodied place.

This program is designed for those who simply desire a deeper practice as well as for those who feel called to teach. The program, as does the practice, begins with you. By strengthening your relationship with yoga as a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual support this program offers an authentic and rich platform for self-inquiry. You will learn from teachers with varying backgrounds all deeply rooted in the tradition and dedicated to your development. Through this well established and diverse background you will develop your own way, a practice that is a unique and authentic representation of you! In addition each student will enjoy one-on-one mentorship during the program with a lead teacher.

Students will be required to commit to a personal daily home practice or sādhana. It is this sadhana that is the platform for authentic teaching; teaching that comes from dedicated living experience. It is our aim to re-establish a deep connection and reverence for the practice by cultivating dedicated, ethical and truly educated students and teachers interested and committed to yoga as a way of life. While we will go in depth into yoga āsana this program pays special attention to all limbs of yoga including ethical tenets, prānayāma, mantra, and meditation.

Join our staff of experienced teachers and experts to explore the transformative effects of an intelligent yoga practice…Come LIVE your yoga!

We hope you will join us for summer June-August!
