by Arundhati Baitmangalkar

If you’re loving your yoga journey so far & would like to deepen your understanding of yoga, then read on. While its called the 200-hour yoga teacher training program. That hardly explains what this is really about. Firstly, you don’t need to become a yoga teacher. Now or ever. You can study for the sheer love of studying yoga. You can do it to enrich and enhance your life. The program is geared to help you understand yoga in a way thats practical for you in your current life. Some of you may want to teach asana at some point. And we’ve made provisions for this. But at its core, it an in-depth study and apply yoga to your life program. For marketing reasons, I will be using the term 200-hour yoga teacher training. But please don’t let that stop you in any form from doing this study program.

Are you a suitable candidate for 200-hour yoga teacher training?

This program works if you’re ready to jump into it and be a fully invested participant. Here’s what you need to know.

  • Do you have a consistent asana practice in the past year? Don’t worry about how advanced or not. Do you come regularly to your yoga class or do you practice at home on your own regularly? If your answer is yes, or somewhat yes. Then you are eligible
  • You need to be able to attend instudio classes for all the weekends. Each weekend is immersive so make sure you clear out your schedule and be ready to be present

What’s the schedule?

  • The training is offered in a weekend intensive format. It will fly by quickly once we get started. Your classes will run from 11am to 6pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
  • The training starts September 14th and will stop December 15th, 2024.
