This meditation teacher training is offered as an immersion retreat, an exceptional opportunity for uninterrupted, focused practice to take you deep. Three guided meditation sessions daily combined with periods of silence and journaling allow space for the treasured insights that arise from meditation to blossom. You’ll refine your ability to mindfully perceive not only yourself, but also the world around you, with increasing sensitivity. These insights help you create relationships with your truest self and more authentic productive relationships based on clarity and understanding.
The Zuna Yoga® meditation teacher training is a journey of embodied experience, a necessity for leading others from a place of truth and confidence. We can only authentically impart to others what we truly know. A remarkable highlight of this course is a structured three day silent period during the final week, where you’ll use what you’ve learned to create a powerful personal experience. You’ll refine your ability to mindfully perceive not only yourself with increasing sensitivity, but also the world around you. This is the foundation from which to lead and share in group classes, private sessions, corporate programs and workshops, as well as other ways to serve your community as a leader.
We’ll introduce you to measurably effective meditation and deep relaxation techniques. Our intelligent system has been refined to simplify and expedite the attainment of a profound meditation experience. This meditation teacher training includes guided asana and meditation sessions, lecture, practica, embodiment exercises, dyads, group work, and plenty of practice teaching to find your your voice, confidence and joy as an instructor.
Modern psychology and neuroscience tell us that much of how we perceive life is not due to what we experience in the external world, but rather how we interpret these events through the lens of the mind. If the mind is the curator of life’s experience, meditation is a way to train the mind to manage and organize these experiences, to become the best version of ourselves. This allows us to create the best relationship with the life we are living.
Meditation is becoming increasingly popular throughout the world. Yoga studios are offering more meditation classes, dedicated meditation studios popping up everywhere, and companies are more frequently providing mindfulness and meditation programs as a staff perk. Developing your skills as a Meditation and Yoga Nidra teacher helps you diversify your opportunities while expanding the menu of rich, meaningful content.
This meditation teacher training course is accredited by Yoga Alliance as an advanced 300 hour yoga teacher certification program.

Are you ready?
This meditation teacher training is not only for aspiring teachers, but also for curious, passionate individuals who want to strengthen their knowledge, and practice of meditation.
This meditation teacher training is complementary to the course material and experience we offer in our 200 hour and 300 hour yoga certification courses. This meditation certification course is for dedicated, disciplined yogis and meditators who are ready to dive into intensive and structured daily meditation practice.
The best way to prepare for your meditation training is to keep practicing meditation! Develop as regular practice as you can. We recommend at least 10 min daily three times a week. Try different styles and different teachers, at your local studio or online. Practice mindfully with compassion. You’re maybe just getting started so be kind to yourself and aim for gradual progress to avoid frustration.
If you have a regular yoga practice, you may be more ready than you think. We welcome participants with a solid foundation in the basics of mediation.
Yes! Participation in our meditation teacher training does not require a prior YTT certification. Some of our students will have already completed a 200 hour yoga teacher training, while for others this will be their first Yoga Alliance accredited course. For those interested in becoming certified, know that you can complete the 200 and 300 hour courses in any order.
Meditation is a key element of all Zuna Yoga® trainings. Our 200 hour YTT grads will already have all the experience they need to succeed at our meditation teacher training. However, it is not necessary to have completed a prior course with us. Some experience in meditation is required – a regular practice of a few months minimum, so you are already comfortable with sitting and maintaining focus fro extended periods.
The main difference between our Meditation Teacher Training and the advanced 300 hour yoga teacher training is the asana component. In the meditation training, we practice simple asana (in addition to specific breathing techniques, bandha, and mudra) as a preparation for deeper states of meditation. The focus is much more on practicing and getting comfortable sharing a variety of meditation and relaxation techniques. In the 300 hour Yoga TT, there is greater attention to physical postures, from beginner to advanced, and sequencing for physical and energetic peak poses.
Many of our students enroll in our 500 hour or “Zero to 500” training, to complete all of their training hours with us back to back. It’s a challenging yet rewarding option, and ideal if you can take two months away from your busy life. Completing both the 200 and 300 hour teacher trainings with the same school ensures both consistency and depth. The meditation teacher training is a wonderful complement to your 200 hour training, offering valuable additions to your personal and professional toolkit.
You will experience first-hand the many proven benefits of regular practice during your meditation teacher training. There are too many to create a complete list, but here are a few highlights:
Physical: Pain management, improved sleep and immune function, cardiovascular health, longevity
Emotional: Improves self-esteem; raises capacity for compassion and connection; lowers depression, anxiety, and stress
Cognitive: Improves learning, memory, focus, attention, creativity, problem solving
Meditation has so many positive effects on body, mind and spirit that carry over to all aspects of life.
Yoga (asana) practices are simple and suitable for all levels. Maturity and stillness are keys to success, rather than just physical fitness. This meditation teacher training is for dedicated students who are ready to dive into intensive, structured daily meditation practice and longer seated sessions.
Zuna Yoga’s teachings and philosophy draw primarily from traditional Tantric, Hatha and buddhist texts and teachings. At this meditation teacher training, you’ll be guided through a variety of meditation techniques including
– Breath-centered meditation
– Chakra meditation
– Body scan
– Walking meditation
Different people respond to different styles, and having a diverse toolkit is essential to find your best practice and serve your students.
Yes! Seated meditation requires stillness, but our bodies need regular movement throughout the day as well. We start our day at meditation teacher training with a simple 90 minute guided asana practice. During lunchtime, you can swim laps or do you own workout.
