200hr Program

200 Hour Yoga Teacher Certification | Atmananda Yoga

The 200 hour Atmananda Certificate Program is certified by Yoga Alliance. Trainees learn a Hatha/Vinyasa style of Yoga. The program is for both aspiring teachers and for those who just wish to deepen their personal practice. Upon completion, graduates will receive a Yoga Alliance certified diploma that will allow graduates to teach at Atmananda as well as globally. We recognize the busy lives that our students live off the mat and try our best to fit our schedule to yours. Atmandanda Teacher training is more than simply learning the asanas. We realize the power of developing your confidence and mastering the art of communication. These are skills that we want our teachers to possess both inside and outside of the yoga studio. From day one we develop these skills taking turns leading fellow students through sun salutations, standing poses, inversions, seated sequences and short meditation sessions.
