+300/500 Hour/Level I Yoga Therapy

Yoga North International SomaYoga Institute uses unique techniques based on the Yamas & Niyamas and a progressive approach to classic yoga using somatics, therapeutic yoga and bridging these techniques back to classic postures/asana. This +300/500 hour teacher training program begins after completing a 200 hour program at Yoga North ISYI or another qualified yoga studio. Once you have gained “the essentials” from your 200 hour training, you are invited to deepen your study with advancing the areas of study in body, breath, mind, and philosophy. The course consists of intensive weekends, one per month with additional home study, practicum work and a mentorship program.  Final weekend of the training will be spent on retreat in Northern Minnesota at our Home Retreat Center on Jasper Lake.
