Since 2001, Atma Yoga has been developing a Teacher Training program that is the only one of its kind in the world. What makes Atma Yoga so unique is that it focuses on the internal process of becoming a powerful teacher. Atma Yoga gives you the tools and techniques to improve as a teacher from the inside out.

“You can learn from anyone how to sequence and align people with postures – only Atma yoga teacher training can teach you ‘HOW’ to connect people to YOGA”.

Atma yoga combines Hatha Yoga (preparatory yoga) and Bhakti Yoga (Devotion to God). While most of the Western world has embraced yoga in the form of asana practice and almost all teacher training programs focus primarily on learning the physical aspects of yoga, Atma Yoga Teacher Training takes a different path and teaches you ‘HOW’ to teach rather than ‘WHAT’ to teach.

Using yoga psychology, and the application of ancient techniques from the Himalayan Yogis and the Bhakti yoga tradition, Atma Yoga Teacher Training will transform your consciousness, your perceptions and rebuild your nervous system, thereby producing teachers who teach by example and who make a commitment to continually develop spiritual strength, virtue, intuition and charisma.

The goal of the philosophy segment is to help yoga teachers understand the psychological potential of yoga as tool for personal transformation.
