Thank you for considering our school. When trying to find a Yoga Teacher Training program feel free to check Yoga Alliances website and check the standards for an acceptable course. For example, full 300 contact hours, covers philosophy, anatomy, etc. Currently all of our curriculum is going through the Yoga Alliance review process and we are excited to share with you a program that exceeds these standards.
Samastah Yoga has a community of teachers that come from diverse backgrounds and traditions both from India and the West. We have woven the traditions taught to us in the East with the understanding of the Western mind and focus on the aspects of yoga that are most needed for West. Yoga is individualized and your training will be as well. We will not be trying to force your body and mind to be like anyone else, we will help you develop an authentic practice and teaching style the radiates the essence of your greatest self. Yoga is excellence in all actions, this excellence means doing your best in each moment. We recognize that each individual is here with their own purpose and our best is different from your best but they are all essential.
