RajaHatha 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Certification, Level 1
RajaHatha 500-Hour Yoga Teacher Certification, Level 2
Our Training is so often referred to as “A YOGA IMMERSION” since it aims to offer the grounds for individuals ready to understand yoga as a way of life by studying and applying the sacred and ancient, yet modern approach to healthy and spiritual living. At the same time, the program prepares the individual to be readied to teach a complete and cohesive yoga class upon Certification. Many students over the years have chosen to take this Teacher Training Course as a means to deep self-study, to better understand yogic living, or to become an active yoga teacher in their community. Many serious students have also taken the course as a life process without the desire to teach, but as a path to joyful living. Whichever the reason, the student can expect to be transformed!
