Thank you for considering our school. When trying to find a Yoga Teacher Training program feel free to intervew the school and make sure they are a good fit for you. Our program has been Yoga Alliance approved, however, we have decided we will no longer be registering with yoga Alliance as we have ethical issues with the organization.
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.
