In our 200 hour yoga teacher training, you’ll dive deep into the foundational philosophies of yoga to gain a clear understanding of these often abstract and mystical concepts. You’ll learn a unique method of breathing that stimulates the vital energies of the body, providing strength and balance in a way you’ve never before experienced. A detailed study of anatomy, biomechanics and integrated systems of the body helps you achieve a new level of stable and empowering postural alignment.
Zuna Yoga® class sequencing is grounded in the same principles that animate the natural world — elegance, efficiency, and fluidity. You’ll learn to use the wide variety of yogic tools such as asana, bandha, pranayama, and meditation. Every class at your 200 hour yoga teacher training is a meaningful journey that supports the continually changing needs and abilities of body, mind and spirit. By applying the sciences of Yoga and Tantra, you will gain a firm understanding of how to approach your practice and teaching. Our sequencing is creative, purposeful, effective, and truly transformative.
Go beyond the intellectual ideas and techniques that you have learned in this course, integrating these concepts into meaningful practice. When the body, breath and mind are cohesively aligned, you’ll experience yoga as it was always meant to be, expressing your power with grace. As your practice of yoga and self-discovery evolves, you’ll uncover the radiance and wisdom that lie within. We then weave these threads of inner truth into the fabric of being, to live authentically, courageously, and joyfully.
The body is a storehouse of wisdom and experience. Vitalizing, conditioning and coordinating the systems of the body is essential for its inner wisdom to be experienced. This 200 hour yoga teacher training course provides a strong foundation in the physical aspects of yoga: asana, alignment, anatomy, physiology, adjustments, modifications, and cautions to empower your relationship with your body.
Yogic philosophy is largely dedicated to understanding ourselves and what drives our choices and behaviors, so we can truly know ourselves. Meditation is a practical tool for this journey to self-knowledge, where we learn to create a relationship with our truest nature. You will be guided through powerful and effective meditation techniques, and create a foundation for practice that will serve you long after your training is over.

Are you ready?
About half of our students sign up for this 200-hour yoga teacher training with the intention of becoming yoga teachers. BUT, this course is also for curious, passionate yogis who want to strengthen their knowledge and practice.
The Zuna Yoga® 200-hour yoga teacher training course is for intermediate yogis who are ready to learn what makes yoga work, develop a solid foundation of practice, and are interested in moving beyond just the physical.
If you have a regular yoga practice, you may be more ready than you think. We strongly recommend applicants prepare for a 200-hour yoga teacher training retreat by:
Think of a 200 hour yoga teacher training as Level 1 and 300 hour as Level 2. The 200 hour yoga teacher training course is a foundational program. But it’s far more than just basics. After its completion, you’ll be qualified to register with Yoga Alliance® as an RYT200, giving you a globally recognized accreditation.
The 300 hour yoga teacher training is an advanced program. Most attending students will have already completed a 200 hour yoga teacher training course.
What’s the difference between 200, 300 and 500 hour yoga teacher training? Our 200 hour program plus our 300 hour combine to create the full 500 hour training experience.
You can choose to do a 200 hour teacher training and then a 300 hour immediately back to back. This is a 500 hour yoga teacher training. But you can also choose to to do them separately with many months or even years between your trainings.
All hours of a 200 hour or 300 hour training are best completed at the same school, but this isn’t a requirement.
Students who attend one of our 300 hour advanced trainings have sometimes completed their 200 hour teacher training at another school. Some schools like Zuna Yoga® may offer an entire 500 hour program. Many offer only the 200 hour.
If you have the time to dedicate to an extended journey that will change your life, and you’re in strong physical and mental shape, the 500 hour is an amazing experience. Many of our students enroll in 200 and 300 hour programs back-to-back (500 hour, or “Zero to 500”), to complete all of their training hours with us. It’s a challenging yet rewarding option, and ideal if you can take two uninterrupted months out of your busy life.
Completing both the 200 hour yoga teacher training and 300 hour with the same yoga school ensures both consistency and depth. And if right now you can only take the time for a 200 hour program, that’s a great place to start.
Sure! Many of our 200 hour graduates return to complete their advanced 300 hour yoga teacher training with us. This can be months or years after your 200 hour YTT, whenever YOU feel you are ready to continue the learning journey. Students often sign up for a 300YTT one or two years after their 200YTT.
For most students, the 200 hour program is challenging on many levels: physical, emotional, mental. Our days begin at sunrise and you’ll be busy with class, lectures, workshops and practica until dinner time. Be ready to listen, reflect, write, share, move, stretch, strengthen, practice, work, learn, laugh, cry, and dance. The program requires consistent attention, discipline and fortitude. Growth occurs outside of our comfort zones, and you’ll be encouraged to reach beyond that barrier, but ALWAYS within your own safe limits. We want you to grow, but how much is up to you.
Our 200 hour yoga teacher training course provides a strong foundation in the physical aspects of yoga, including asana, alignment, anatomy, adjustments, modifications and safe biomechanics. Every teacher of yoga should understand how the body works and be able to create physically and energetically sound sequences. Our 200 hour yoga teacher trainings deliver much more than just asana. We explore the diverse teachings of the yoga tradition, its history and its philosophy. We’ll also introduce you to the advanced techniques of mantra, meditation and pranayama, as well as the principles of Ayurveda. You will get plenty of practice teaching and the opportunity to develop your own voice as an instructor.
