Our Philosophy

We share the ancient yogic science, which provides tools and guidance to adjust your life to the true essence and evolution of your soul, allowing you the opportunity to “find your true north”.

Our philosophy and teacher training is in the Himalayan Tradition. The Himalayan Tradition is rich in the teachings of the 8-fold Ashtanga path, encouraging personal and social awakening and transformation.

All classes at Yoga North are offered in support of the awakening and transformation of each student.

I chose this TT200 program over a few others in part because of its holistic and therapeutic approach to yoga…The program not only met but also exceeded my expectations…

I deepened my understanding of the philosophy behind yoga and learned key principles to practice and teach Asana positions for better functionality and no injuries…I am grateful for this extraordinary learning opportunity.

Live Your Life Awake Path (180 CEUs)

Deepen Your Study for Personal Development

“Live Your Life Awake” is our affectionate phrase for those of you interested in this deeper study of yoga for personal development, not necessarily aiming for professional teacher training. A main goal of the Yoga North faculty is to share comprehensive knowledge of Ayurvedic and yogic philosophy and the ability to relate this understanding to life. Yoga North strongly believes that the basis of growth and freedom is to know oneself, therefore our intention is for all of our students to leave with a much deeper understanding of yourself. In the “Live Your Life Awake” experience, you’ll be a full participant in the coursework, but the homework is optional!

This path is perfect for:

current 200+ hour certified teachers: earn 180 CEUs while learning SomaYoga and refreshing your certification

students of yoga who want a more focused study

Many students join our Teacher Training in order to live their own lives more awake, and steeped in the yogic wisdom we will share. Some finish and do end up teaching SomaYoga after all, but the experience of personal enrichment in this close-knit collective with the support of mentors and experienced instructors is not wasted, no matter where your journey takes you.

Live Your Life Awake Path (180 CEUs) Investment:
Regular Enrollment: $2,450 plus $50 application fee

My biggest change has been in how I perceive myself and my abilities. I went into this to better manage my emotions, practice postures, and integrate yoga practice into my life, I came out of this recognizing that loving all of myself is a practice of freedom. Thank you!
