NOTE: Due to Yoga Alliance’s new guidelines, we renamed our advanced program a 340hr training (formerly 500hr). Nothing, including the amount of hours, has changed, but is more accurate. In order to qualify for the Yoga Alliance 500hr Registration, you must have a previous 200hr (such as our 235hr Program) PLUS a 300hr (ours is 340hrs) program to apply. Contact us if you have questions.
This program includes BOTH 340hr Yoga Teacher Training & Himalayan Institute’s Ayurvedic Yoga Specialist (HI/AYS) Certificates
Prerequisite: Must have 200 hour program certificate, or equivalent, from either Devanadi Yoga OR another approved program.
We currently have TWO 340 hour trainings open for registration:
1) FALL Weekend Dual Certificate Program – December 2014 – October 2015 2) FALL Weekday (Tuesday) Dual Certificate Program – Sept 2014 – Sept 2015
About the Program: The 340 hour Devanadi Yoga Training & Intensive seeks to provide top quality instruction of traditional Hatha & Classical Yoga, Ayurveda, Tantra, Yoga Therapy, and Energy Medicine, and to create an abundant community that supports personal growth, health and well-being through universal mind-body-spirit practices. This training and intensive teaches a synthesis of yoga styles with an emphasis on asana, bandha, mudra, pranayama, and meditation, as well as a rich study of yoga philosophy, history and lineage. The director and guest teachers have studied in the traditions of ParaYoga, Tantra, Ashtanga, Vinyasa Flow, Iyengar, Ayurveda, and energy medicine, as well as a variety of meditation styles. This program completes the requirements needed for students to register with Yoga Alliance as a 340 hour Yoga Alliance registered instructor. Note that our 340 hour program is over technically 300+ hours of study (see sidebar) spread out over 9 months or one year. This combined with your previous 200 hour training gives you the hours you need to complete your Yoga Alliance application for a 340 hour teacher. Let us know if you have questions as to how this works. It can be confusing, but we have it all figured out for you.
Transformative and geared towards true positive growth, development and self-mastery, our training aims to help bring out the best qualities in YOU. When one finds balance within through time-tested yoga, tantric and ayurvedic approaches and techniques, your teaching and your character flow effortlessly as we step into our lives with Kriya Shakti, or the power of perfect action, thought and speech – spontaneously doing, thinking and saying the right thing at the right time. We love yoga!
Directed by Tanya Boigenzahn Sowards, this training is also affiliated with the Himalayan Institute and may host a variety of other senior and certified ParaYoga teachers and leading teachers in the field including Kathryn Templeton, David Keil, Ben Vincent, Lauren Toolin, Karina Mirsky, Dr. Indu Arora, Matthew Sanford, Sarah Longacre, Jessica Rosenberg, William Prottengeier and others.
The program is a longer, richer, & deeper study of topics you may have been introduced to in your initial 200 hour program.
