"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science."

-Albert Einstein


The Purusha 300-Hour Yoga Teacher Training is built on the foundation philosophy of classic Raja and Hatha, Tantra, and Bhakti Yoga. It is the second level of our YTT. Each course utilizes the 5 kosha model of the human experience which includes the physical, energetic, mental, wisdom, and spiritual dimensions. All courses incorporate practices from the 8 limbs of classic yoga, the energy system of the chakras and vayus, as well as western modern science, Tibetan mysticism and world truth/values that call on optimal human potential for well being of each individual, self realization and realization of a healthy community, planet and world. Purusha Yoga School is a registered Yoga School with Yoga Alliance. Purusha Yoga School Professional staff is made up of CIAYT’s (Certified International Association Yoga Therapists) and YACEP providers (Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Providers).

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.
