teacher Training


This 300-Hour training is the second level of our yoga teacher training and the first step toward accomplishing your yoga therapy certification (currently under review for accreditation with the IAYT). Together with your 200 hour certification, you can register as a 500 hour RYT (registered yoga teacher).

All courses within the program are built on the foundational philosophy of hatha, raja, tantra and bhakti yoga, and utilize the five kosha model of the human experience. Each course also incorporates practices from the eight limbs of classic yoga, the energy systems of the chakras and vayus, as well as western modern science. These courses are all part of a comprehensive, holistic approach to teaching, and are taught by Purusha Yoga Master Teachers who are certified yoga therapists (IAYT) with over 10,000 hours experience teaching their modality, and have specialized certifications in their areas of expertise.

The 300 Hour YTT program includes:

  • 2 required foundational courses

  • 3 elective course (to be chosen from menu of specialized certifications)

  • 6 months unlimited classes at Purusha Yoga Studio

  • 20% off merchandise at the Purusha Yoga Studio store

  • Opportunities to teach at the studio, non-profit, and retreats

When you join Purusha you join an open and engaging community where all are welcome, and all are encouraged to participate and share their special talents and skills. Purusha offers scholarships for low income and seva enthusiasts who wish to give back by teaching underserved and/or at-risk populations.

We look forward to connecting with you to learn more about your personal journey and how we may help you on your path of learning and professional growth.

This studio is an oasis. With so many yoga studios in the city centered solely on fitness, it’s nice to find a place that expands beyond the physical into the lessons of yoga - integrating the philosophy. It has such a great vibe, it’s always felt really cozy and welcoming. The schedule has a wide variety of classes and they switch up schedule a few times a year which keeps things new. I have gone through their 500 RYT training program and had a really nice experience. The teacher’s training was a huge learning experience for me and very invaluable.
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.
