Every Truth we realize in our own hearts, will be the treasures we have to share with others

Purusha Teacher Trainings are based on the 5 kosha model of the human experience which includes the physical, energetic, mental, wisdom, and spiritual dimensions, and we believe that through direct experience, personal application, deep reflection, and sharing, you will naturally become a great teacher of yoga. However, our teacher trainings are not only about learning to teach, many choose this path as a means of experiencing and exploring the many facets of yoga in a deeper and more meaningful way. We study 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 the wellbeing 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).



The Level I - Yoga Teacher Training is a foundational 200-Hour training. This course includes a strong emphasis on health education, mental wellbeing, physical fitness, and classic yoga that is applicable to the modern world. Upon completion you will graduate as a Purusha Holistic Yoga Teacher, and will qualify to register with the Yoga Alliance as a 200 Hour Yoga Teacher (RYT 200).




The 300-Hour Yoga Teacher Training is an extensive advanced training, and is Level II of our YTT. The Purusha 300-Hour training is built on the foundational philosophies of classic Raja, Hatha, Tantra, and Bhakti Yoga. Along with the 2 required foundation courses, you will choose 3 elective courses from our menu of specialized certification workshops.  Each course is taught by a Purusha Yoga Master Teacher, with over 10,000 hours of experience and training in their area of expertise.  Upon completion you will graduate as a Purusha Advanced Holistic Yoga Teacher, and together with your 200 Hour RYT, you may register with the Yoga Alliance as a 500 Hour Registered Yoga Teacher.

I completed my teacher training at Purusha and couldn’t be happier. The community and teachers here are genuine, warm, and nurturing. There is a diverse wealth of knowledge across all the teachers, who connect personally with you to encourage your growth and success. If you’re looking to avoid overly-packed, consumerist teacher trainings, this is the place for your yoga education.

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.
