What You'll Learn

The Art of Teaching Yoga

The Jaya Yoga Teacher Training is a broad dive into the techniques, philosophies and practices of yoga and is both a stand-alone exploration but also the starting point for our 200 Hour Teacher Training certificate, should you wish to continue on to teach yoga professionally.

Our yoga embraces three values:
Life Affirming Philosophy  •  Integrity in Community  •  Longevity & Alignment

We focus on good form to support longevity and sustainability in the body. Through intelligent alignment principles, sound biomechanics, and a workable understanding of anatomy, it offers a deep, efficacious practice to enhance embodiment.

We value the power of community — one that is inclusive, honest, warm, and kind. We cherish collective support and seek to live with accountability for our energy and actions. We are responsible for the earth and it’s inhabitants and as such, value coming together in person (not just online!).

We start all endeavors saying yes to life — receiving what the world presents us. We wish for humanity to love their life and appreciate the miracle of being alive. We enjoy having fun, value lineage, and believe living a conscious and skillful life is the secret to deep fulfillment.

In this training you will delve into the wonders of yoga, providing a much needed pause from the accelerated nature of the world, while gaining a comprehensive understanding of yoga postures, yoga history, and philosophy. Most importantly you will create a life-long connection to yourself, your life, and a supportive community.

  • • Explore yoga lifestyle, philosophy & well-being.
  • • Learn the history of yoga tradition.
  • • Take the seat of the teacher with greater confidence
  • • Discover the world of personal growth and transformation.
  • • Learn how to inspire students to move from the inside out.
  • • Learn to lead and sequence alignment based vinyasa classes in the Jaya Yoga method.

We can empathize with financial challenges, and you are smart to seek education and personal transformation, since ‘watering’ ourselves is something we forget to do when cash flow is tight!

Here is the good news…

The 200 Hour Teacher Training is one of those rare investments that pays off immediately in a renewed sense of purpose, connection, and action that will benefit you, your work, and your relationships for life.

Other teacher trainings with this level of training and connection cost anywhere from $2900-$5000 or more. We priced the training as reasonably as we could to help make it as accessible but more importantly, we have no doubt that that fluency you will gain from the training will help you start or enhance your career in yoga.

Many of our teachers have recovered their investment in the training within the first year of graduating. Our newer teachers earned income right away from teaching beginner series, private yoga lessons, and group classes, and experienced teachers increased their attendance by up to 50%. The course also has business and career training so you can hit the ground running.

Because of this, a number of our past graduates have done whatever they can to come up with the funds. They have sold things, worked extra hours, opened savings accounts, done GoFundMe campaigns, etc… Where there is a will there is a way!

Amy Ippoliti, a gifted teacher’s teacher, has been leading yoga teacher trainings since 1999. Her students have gone on to become leaders, authors, conference presenters, and teacher trainers in the yoga world –  both in the United States and all over the globe! She is revered for her innovative methods that bridge the gap between ancient yoga wisdom and modern-day life, helping yoga students “turn up their own volume.” After years of feeling powerless to help her teacher training graduates actually survive as yoga teachers, she started studying business, marketing, finances and technology. In 2010, when she felt confident enough to share what she had learned, she created “90 Minutes to Change the WorldTM”.
