For Yoga teachers and health professionals

Enrich your teaching and personal practice with Raja Yoga – Online, the science of meditation based on self-mastery. Raja Yoga presents the philosophy and psychology of Yoga in a systematic way, guiding one to greater peace and balance in life and spiritual realization.

The entire world is yearning for peace. The one enduring solution is to experience peace in our own hearts and then express it in our lives. Raja Yoga provides a comprehensive approach to attain that goal that addresses all aspects of life: physical, mental, social, and spiritual. It is a pathway to freedom from all sorrow, suffering, and delusion. It is a means to actualize your inner potential for greater health, happiness, and fulfillment in life.

Raja Yoga Teacher Training – Online provides a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in these subtle and profound teachings and learn how to skillfully share them with others.

The curriculum includes:

  • An in-depth exploration of the Yoga Sutras
  • Instructions on how to incorporate the teachings into daily life
  • Opportunities to deepen your Hatha Yoga, pranayama, and meditation practice
  • Training in answering questions and leading discussions
  • Syllabus for teaching a seven-week Raja Yoga course


  • Tuesdays 6–9 pm
  • Thursdays 6–9 pm
  • Saturdays 11 am–1 pm and 3–6 pm Eastern Time
