A personal growth, professional development and spiritual awareness program to instill and dispense the wisdom and teachings of yoga. Students of the program will learn how to be responsible for all aspects of Self: physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual. The completion of this program also qualifies for the certification process to be a Yoga Teacher.
The program is divided into two parts:
In the first part of the program, participants will receive a foundation of basic yoga principles, as supported by training guidelines and study materials, towards developing a self-directed personal practice. There will be a presentation and study of the yamas and niyamas (yogic principles that guide daily living), yoga asanas (postures), pranayama (breathing techniques) and dhyana (meditation). The primary focus of the first half of the training is on Balance: learning to work with the processes that enhance your inner awareness, physical well-being, mental clarity, emotional stability and spiritual attunement.
In the second part of the program, students will obtain sufficient information, training, and practice to have a robust understanding of a number of yoga practices with a clear overview and an in-depth investigation of the various paths available to the Yoga practitioner. This portion of the training includes aspects of psychology, philosophy, history, and ethics. The primary focus of the second half of the training is on Integration: to further the processes of the first half of the training and to share your knowledge with others in your life. At the end of the training, students will be offered the opportunity to pursue teaching certification.
Familiarity with yoga and a strong desire to become self-responsible.
To provide the information (comparable to and exceeding other similar training programs) in a largely experiential method with practical hands-on opportunities; to stimulate the interest and passion of each student, along with guidance & assistance to support each student’s’ individual journey.

FAQs about 200hr Teacher Within YTT:
What happens if I miss parts of the training?
If you miss any of the contact hours during the YTT, you have several options available to make them up. You can make up the hours by attending approved workshops in the community (provided by agents other than the Institute of Inner Source) at your own cost. You can listen to a recording of the portion of the 200hr training you missed and produce an assignment on top of all other required assignments. For reasonably small chunks of missed time, you can make up the hours through Karma Yoga projects as a part of sustaining your yoga community. These are arranged on a case-by-case basis with the main faculty of the training.
What happens if I want to take the Teacher Within only to deepen my own practice?
The Institute of Inner Source provides a training track dedicated to those who want to take the training only to deepen their own practice. If you have wanted to deepen your practice, but are not interested in being a yoga teacher in the community, you may take all of the training without the completion of a final exam and practicum teaching certification. In this case, you can always change your mind during the training and take the certification track. Additionally, you can take the certification track up to one year after the final day of the training for a $500 fee.
Is the retreat included in the price of the training?
Yes, except only for the cost of your travel. That is up to you.
