Sadhana: disciplined spiritual practice

All sound teaching is grounded in the discipline of personal practice. Whether you are an aspiring yoga teacher, a student looking to enrich your practice, or an existing instructor seeking broader knowledge and skills, the 240-hour Sadhana Yoga Teacher Training offers you a strong foundation for your next step. Delve deeply into yoga practice, philosophy, and lifestyle. Refine your knowledge of physical and subtle anatomy. Gain confidence and intelligence in designing meaningful practices for yourself and/or others. For those who want to teach, become prepared to lead yoga practices in a range of settings and contexts.

For all seekers who have experienced the profound impact of yoga: be inspired and empowered by tradition-based teachings for modern life.

Three Streams Yoga teacher trainings are based in the living tradition of Sri Vidya, an ancient lineage that draws on the wisdom of yoga, Ayurveda, and Tantra. Your lead trainers study with a master teacher and are dedicated to helping other yoga students and teachers thrive. This training’s curriculum is shaped by extensive further studies in yoga, a passion for lifelong learning, and almost 20 years of teaching and designing courses in the academic realm. Yoga, like learning, is a practice that unfolds over time. As your knowledge, experience, and self-awareness become richer, your understanding and application of yoga will evolve, as well. And so we have gone above and beyond Yoga Alliance’s 200-hour standards and required contact hours to ensure you’ll have ample in-person learning time, as well as one-on-one mentorship at key points in the program. Conducive to depth and experiential learning, this training is organized as a series of weekend intensives over 6 months and includes reading and other assignments to be completed between sessions. This format and time frame allow for the immersive experience of deep learning in connection with a sangha (community), and time to integrate the lessons and practices for personal and professional growth.

Upon passing the program requirements, you will be eligible to register with Yoga Alliance as a RYT 200.
