Amrit Method Yoga and Yoga Teacher Training

Amrit Method Yoga Trainings

Whether you are already a practitioner of hatha yoga or are just beginning your yoga journey, the Amrit Method of Yoga offers a dimension of yoga training you won’t find anywhere else. Because it is easily accessible and adaptable to different levels of strength and ability, it is ideal for spiritual seekers, health and therapy professionals, and teachers of any style of hatha yoga and meditation.

Built on authentic yoga teachings, the Amrit Method has enormous relevancy for today’s world. This unique approach to yoga transforms philosophy into a living reality that will take you to the direct experience of integration. It can empower you as never before, enabling you to manage your thoughts and emotions, and initiating deep and lasting transformation that will forever change your understanding of your Self and your relationships with others.

The Amrit Method Yoga Training programs consist of two 10-day residential sessions. You may choose to participate in only the first of these as an “Immersion” for personal growth, or take both sessions for certification as an Amrit Method Yoga Teacher. The trainings offer you the opportunity to learn masterful techniques while you gain the knowledge and confidence to share these teachings with others. These trainings are designed to:

  • Deepen your personal understanding and experience of yoga
  • Connect you with the silent awareness at the core of your being that impacts every aspect of your life
  • Help you find and release behaviors which are affecting your health and well being
  • Build your physical, mental and emotional vitality

All Amrit Method training programs incorporate: 

  • Classical yoga theory and teachings from ancient texts
  • The Amrit Method view of energy, anatomy, pranayama and meditation
  • The Amrit Method of Yoga, Yoga Nidra, and Quantum Breath Meditation
  • Devotional practices (bhakti yoga)
  • Instruction, practice and hands-on posture clinics
  • Applied anatomy, modifications and assists, teaching techniques and practice teaching
