Foundational Program and 200-hour Teacher Training
Our foundational program and 200-hour teacher training is designed for anyone looking to deepen their yoga practice and knowledge, as well as those beginning their journey as yoga teachers. This program will begin in October 2, 2022. Details are below under General Information.
In this two hundred hour experience, students will learn all the essentials of Yoga: practice techniques, anatomy and physiology, the humanities of Yoga through philosophical texts, and the essentials needed to become a professional in the teaching of Yoga. As a foundational program, students will be introduced to many styles of Yoga, including the techniques taught by BKS Iyengar, Patabhi Jois, Sivananda, Anjali Inti, and others. The program will blend onsite instruction at the LMU campus with remote access through live videoconference, as well as site visits in Los Angeles County.
