What to Expect at 200hr Yoga Teacher Training

The Science of Body, Mind and Spirit

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.

Intelligent Class Sequencing
Elegant, Efficient, Fluid

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.

Awaken to Truth, Courage and Joy

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. 

Are you ready?

200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Intensive

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:

  • Developing one year of consistent asana practice with minimal limitations.
  • Developing a regular practice of at least an hour, three times a week.
  • Being relatively comfortable practicing intermediate back bends and working on inversions.
  • Having experience in meditation.
  • Acquiring a level of maturity, a willingness to learn, discipline, curiosity, and an understanding of the limits of your own body.
  • Trying different styles and different teachers, at your local studio or online.
  • Keeping an open mind, and a willingness to go deep and move past established habits.
  • Practicing mindfully and aiming for gradual progress to avoid injury.

How to apply

The first step in booking your 200 hour yoga teacher training is to fill out the online application form. Once your application is accepted, you can make a deposit of $750 to secure your spot. The remaining balance is due 60 days before the start of your program.

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.
