The Tree of Classic Yoga is vast and beautiful, encompassing a holistic network of branches that invite each student to explore inwardly and discover the world’s truths. These truths have been rediscovered for generations, and within each of us there is a vast knowledge. Every truth we realize in our own hearts will be the only real treasures we have to give others.

Purusha Yoga Teacher Training is not just about teaching; many choose this path as a means of experiencing and exploring the many facets of Yoga in a deeper and more meaningful way. 

The Level I Yoga Teacher Training is a foundational 200 Hour training.  Upon completion you will qualify to register with the Yoga Alliance as a RYT 200 (registered Yoga Teacher 200 hour level

The Purusha Yoga teacher-training program provides a wonderful foundation for the knowledge, skills, and personal qualities necessary to be a successful yoga teacher. More than a school, Purusha is a community built upon trust, respect, and holistic learning that considers its students as whole emotional and spiritual beings with many inherent gifts to offer. Purusha helps its students recognize these gifts and share them with the world. There is a teacher in all of us. I’m so grateful to have had the guidance and support of the masterful teachers at Purusha and would recommend this program to any yogi looking to deepen their relationship with their practice and discover the teacher within.

“This 200 hour YTT program was such an eye-opening experience. Not only was it relevant to my personal mental health and well-being, but it gave me the tools, the dedication, the historical context, and the desire to pursue yoga as a path towards health and wellness long-term in my life. The teachers really gave me everything I hoped for in a YTT program. They were kind, thoughtful, and challenged me in ways I did not anticipate. I continue to practice at this studio because it serves and grows one of the most beautiful and welcoming and supportive communities in the yoga world that I have seen.”
