Become a Yoga Teacher Online

Ann Arbor Massage and Yoga Therapy, co-directed by Trevor Pritam Hari Eller and Miriam Joy Dowd-Eller, is offering a 200-hour teacher training online course in Classical Hatha Yoga, Ayurveda and Western Anatomy from January 9 through June 20, 2021.

Participants will learn the essence of yoga and its three major schools, Bhakti, Jnana and Karma Yoga. Students will study the major sutras of the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali and the Hatha Yoga Pradipika, as well in-depth classes on the Nirvana Shatakam, written by Adi Shankacharya, the ancient teacher of non-dual philosophy (Advita Vedanta). Participants will have a minimum of 20 hours of philosophy classes. For students interested in yogic philosophy, this course will impart in-depth familiarity with yogic philosophy and how it relates to all aspects of life and branches of practice.

The course surpasses Yoga Alliance standards for completion of 200-hour Yoga Teacher training. Usual standards for excused absences, along with demonstrations of participant competencies, effort and dedication, will entail fulfillment of course requirements. Upon graduation, students will be empowered to teach yoga postures, meditation and breath work in light of Ayurvedic mind-body systems.
