200-hour Yoga Teacher Training (YTT)!

Yoga Nirvana offers the finest instruction for teacher training

At Yoga Nirvana Studio, Teacher Training is not a casual commitment, nor is it an automatic entry. Students of yoga who are interested in pursuing YNS Teacher Training must apply in person, and schedule an admission interview if your application is accepted. All applications will be considered, and students who are accepted into the program commit to fully participate in an immersive and comprehensive learning experience.

The screening process for YTT includes a written application and in-person interview.

To apply, come in person to the studio. 

Questions? Talk to Jim Keegan, in person, at YNS.

Our mission is to foster a community of learning that takes a modern approach to ancient yogic philosophy, and to equip students with a superior understanding of teaching methodologies and techniques.
