Important: "The yoga therapy components of our other course(s) are based on Ayurveda Yoga therapy principles, and are, not derived from our status as an RYS® with Yoga Alliance Registry."

Our story: We had been offering Ayurveda, Sanskrit, Meditation, Ayurvedic Anatomy as well as Ayurveda and Yoga Integrated workshops and classes for many years. We started yoga teacher training due to many requests from our current students. The course is based on the premise of deeper immersion into traditional Hatha Yoga practices from Hatha Yoga Pradipika, Spiritual Practices from Srimad Bhagavad Gita, and, Ayurvedic Health Practices from Charaka Samhita.

If you are looking for a quick certificate to put on your wall-- this is not us. We are aiming to invite yogis who want to deepen their understanding of yoga philosophy, Pranayama, Mudras, Mantras, Ayurveda, as well as basic Sanskrit terminology. This yoga program is delivered both online, as well as onsite workshops. The program is spiritual, and, has a strong Ayurvedic basis.

Objective: At the end of the course, student will be able to teach at least a basic 60 Min Hatha foundation, beginner, or, gentle Hatha Yoga class with a gentle warm up with all basic spinal positions, classical surya namaskara, regular and/or modified with props, and, seated, prone and supine asanas for beginners followed by one or two Pranayama and meditation followed by shavasana.

Classes take place online, every other saturday, and, weekend workshops in Austin, Texas.

Course lasts apx. 6 months.

Testimonials:"The Yoga Teacher Training program at San Diego College of Ayurveda was a truly transformational experience, for which, I will be forever grateful!
