Integral Yoga® 300-hour Program Take your Yoga practice and teaching skills to the next level with the Advanced Integral Yoga Teacher Training. The Advanced Integral Yoga Hatha Teacher Training enables you to expand your teaching skills by learning how to instruct advanced classes and finding ways to take simple, basic asanas to a deeper and more subtle level—this is what truly makes a practice “advanced.”
Topics covered in this training include:
- Advanced asanas (postures) variations and modifications, including inversions and arm balancing poses
- Advanced study, theory, and practice of pranayama (breathing exercises), as well as bandhas (body locks) and kriyas (cleansing practices)
- Guidance on how to safely introduce advanced practices to students
- Additional study and immersion in Raja Yoga
- Study and guidance on how to integrate koshas (layers of the Self), Patanjali’s Ashtanga (Eight Limbs of Yoga) and meditation into your teaching and personal practice
There will be time to share experiences and new ideas and to address challenges that you may have encountered in teaching or in your personal practice. This is a Zoom hybrid training culminating in a 5-day immersion (February 15 – 19, 2024) at Yogaville Ashram in Buckingham, VA. https://www.yogaville.org/about/ Upon acceptance to this training, you will receive details for securing accommodations at the ashram. Attendance at live sessions is required for certification. All live sessions will be recorded with recordings typically posted within one day for TTs’ review. These recordings will be available for 3 months following completion of the training – until June 18, 2024. Participants will be asked to keep their cameras on during the live online sessions. During this training, you will have free access to Integral Yoga TV, an online portal for Hatha classes, meditations, and inspiring talks with Swami Satchidananda. This training program also includes free access to all Yoga classes offered at Integral Yoga Institutes of San Francisco and New York during the training.

Graduating from ATT was the most rewarding and heart-opening experience. When you have teachers as wise and knowledgeable as Swami Asokananda and Leticia Padmasri there is nothing else to wish for. They share a great source of education for Yoga teachers. The training has an absolutely satisfying curriculum and most importantly great support on the individual level. To me, this was a complete training, couldn’t be more grateful for such an opportunity.—Malati Kurashvili
The Advanced Teacher Training at Yogaville, with Swami Asokananda and Leticia Padmasri, enhanced my Yoga practice, my teaching, and my life in many ways. As a seeker, this training inspired and re-energized my practice. The instructors embody years of study and regular practice. They both live what they teach in an authentic, humble manner. They are gifted at sharing their wisdom and insights in concrete, practical ways. They made the subtle, deep, and profound aspects of an advanced practice accessible and attainable for us. The training is rigorous mentally and physically, but the reward is well worth the effort; the confidence and ability to offer the advanced Integral Yoga class, and a path toward continued personal growth. I’m so grateful for the experience.—Krishna Tim Howeth
