The next amrita Yoga Teacher Training begins March 2017!

An Info Session for the 2017 Training will be held at
The DAYA Foundation, details to come.

If you are interested in attending please email


Teaching yoga is an art and a science.  It is a conversation, a dance, an interpersonal reciprocity between teacher and students.  Join Sarahjoy and her training team as you develop your knowledge and your skill set as well as your personal artistry as a teacher.

Your life informs your yoga, your yoga informs your life.  Out of that dance arise your perspective, your passion, your voice, and your teaching style!  Combined with the systemotology of amrita yoga, you can be confident in your yoga and teaching methodology as well as the heart (and mind) you’ll bring to all of your relationships with your students.

amrita yoga is a form of vinyasa yoga with influences from Ayurveda, physical therapy, neuroscience, yoga philosophy and psychology, pranayama, and mindfulness. amrita yoga emphasizes the bio-mechanics of alignment, anatomy, kinesiology, and rehabilitative processes. Click here to learn more about the style of amrita yoga.

“A well rounded course to deepen your understanding of yoga from asana to meditation, philosophy, and practical life skills.”

“It’s difficult to choose the most useful as all aspects have been so helpful. I have never studied with a teacher who could explain these things in such a clear, comprehensible way… This training was expertly organized and executed… Any workshop with Sarahjoy is well worth your time! Sarahjoy has a very clean and comprehensible way of explaining materials from anatomy to the Yoga Sutras…”

“This TT is the most complete program I have ever experienced (this is my 3rd 200). It integrated and layered the multifaceted skills and gifts of yoga. Sarahjoy’s style is supportive, engaging, and deeply steeped in the tradition of yoga.”
