“Teaching yoga is an honor and a delight. And, it comes with responsibilities.
Responsibilities that will cause your life to expand, that will catalyze your self-study, and stimulate a love for learning and growing in countless ways.”

What are the differences between the amrita yoga and Yoga & Social Justice trainings?
Both programs will teach trainees about the philosophy and psychology of yoga as well as mindfulness tools, information on how the nervous system functions and why yoga teachers need to be informed about the aspects of nervous system that affect the students’ body and brain, and breathing practices to help students navigate their mind-body relationship.
Both trainings will teach trainees about how to use language skills to articulate the yoga poses, create demonstrations for students to learn about the poses, make observations about students’ poses and use verbal suggestions to support them to create better alignment in the poses, and how to use hands on support to facilitate a student’s learning.
