2017 Yoga Teacher Training Intensive

February 3-June 25,  Bi Monthly Weekend Programming  

The Masters Path 200-Hour Teacher Training program is a comprehensive, experiential study of the art and science of Yoga as well as the sister sciences of Ayurveda and Jyotisha (the Vedic science of the planets and their impact on our psychobiology). Students will receive authentic instruction in classic yogic philosophy, Hatha Yoga, Pranayama, the Eight Limbs of Yoga as illuminated by Sri Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, as well as be introduced to deeper teachings from select ancient Tantric texts.

The primary focus of The Masters Path Teacher Training is to briyoga webdge the Eastern science and art of Yoga with the Western science of consciousness and matter. Through this dance we inspire a profound desire for self-awareness and awakening. It is from the seeds of this foundation that our students cultivate a long-lasting personal practice and a rich level of experience from which to teach.

Traditional, Authentic, & Empowering

No Student or Class Is The Same

The science of Yoga impacts our body, refines our minds, and provides a deep and abiding clarity to some of the most profound mysteries of the Universe. As such, one of the tenants of our program is that ALL yoga is therapeutic. As such, our program’s emphasis on the science of Ayurveda and it’s principles provide our graduates with the tools necessary to effectively design and execute a class, individual or group, that originates from a deeply therapeutic foundation of understanding and experience.

Certification

The Masters Path 200-Hour Teacher Training Program has been developed well within the guidelines set forth by the Yoga Alliance®, a national non-profit organization dedicated to education and the support of Yoga throughout the United States. Their mission is to ensure a comprehensive understanding of the benefits of yoga, that registered yoga teachers value the core history and traditions, and to maintain public confidence in the quality and consistency of instruction. Our program is currently under review for Yoga Alliance Certification.

Each of our graduates will receive a certificate from the Sedona Wellness Institute and are eligible for national certification upon completion of the course. The Sedona Wellness Institute is also in the process of gaining mandatory licensure with the Arizona State Board of Private Post-Secondary Education.
