Teacher Training

Dedicated to a tradition of excellence in teaching for more than 40 years, the Himalayan Institute offers yoga teachers comprehensive and systematic training in classical yoga.

We teach yogic techniques for body, breath, mind, and spirit in 200-hour and 500-hour certification programs. Our programs include meditation, asana instruction, training in pranayama and relaxation techniques, therapeutic yoga, and yoga philosophy and psychology. The Himalayan Institute is a registered school with Yoga Alliance, meeting the requirement for national registration at both the 200- and 500-hour levels.

The next 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training, approved by Yoga Alliance, will be offered at HI Buffalo beginning September 2015. We are now accepting applications.
