Program Description

Yama Yoga’s Advanced Multi-Style 300 hour Yoga Teacher Training program at Ananda Yoga and Detox Center is perfect for practitioners and teachers seeking the time, space and reflection for transformative personal and professional growth

Led by Valerie Jeremijenko (PhD, EYRT500) our 6-week immersive program uses the concept of Svadhayaya (self-study) as a way to build upon our current asana and teaching practices.

Our rigorous asana curriculum will explore a variety of modalities, including flow, vinyasa, ashtanga, alignment-based, yin, nidra and restorative yoga while our teaching units will provide the opportunity to explore the needs of unique populations through personal research projects and workshop development. Take your teaching and practice to the next level and professionalize your unique contribution to the yoga world and community.
