The RajaHatha School of Yoga first began offering 200-Hour Teacher Training in 2004 and has graduated teachers annually since, under the direction of Amy Pearce-Hayden, ERYT-500 The Level I Yoga Teacher Training is an intense 6-month program appropriate for students ready to explore how teaching Yoga can change their life and the lives of others, or for students who wish to go deeper into their personal Self-Realization through the traditional practice of Yoga. Many students embark on this path for personal Self-transformation and healing, rather than having teaching as their primary goal. This RajaHatha Foundation Course and its instructors meet the standards of Yoga Alliance and awards National Certification upon successful completion.
Build a foundation for lifelong healing and growth.
Throughout the intensive 6-Month Training, students will explore the ancient science of Yoga with in-depth focus on asana, pranayama, meditation, personal study and Self- exploration, ancient yogic text study (with a focus on Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras), and other yogic philosophy, study of the physical, mental, energetic, emotional and spiritual bodies, as well as anatomy/physiology, teaching methods, yogic ethics, and the healing, restorative and therapeutic aspects of Yoga . The Training is appropriate for students who wish to deepen their Yoga practice and knowledge of the science, want to become certified teachers, or already teach and desire to continue their studies. Students who emerge with certification will have a very solid foundation on which to teach Yoga, in addition to have gained tremendous experiences that are often life-transforming.
