Niroga yoga training programs

This extraordinary training is for yoga students who are genuinely interested in learning yoga, living yoga, and giving yoga. Niroga's Certified Teacher Training will not only teach you to lead basic poses, breathwork, and meditation, but will also guide you to:

  • Establish a comprehensive foundation in the authentic practice of yoga.
  • Align your thoughts, words, and actions with your core values through the integration and application of yoga philosophy.
  • Incorporate a practical understanding of anatomy and physiology in your practice, and your teaching.

Students will join a diverse learning community with other students that share a dedication to personal growth and selfless service.
