About Our 340hr Yoga Teacher Training & Intensive Programs:

The 340hr Devanadi Yoga Training & Intensive aims to provide top quality instruction of traditional Hatha & Classical Yoga, Ayurveda, Tantra, Yoga Therapy, and Energy Medicine, and to create an abundant community that supports personal growth, health and well-being through universal mind-body-spirit practices. This training and intensive teaches a synthesis of yoga styles with an emphasis on asana, bandha, mudra, pranayama, and meditation, as well as a rich study of yoga philosophy, history and lineage. The director and guest teachers have studied in the traditions of ParaYoga, Tantra, Ashtanga, Vinyasa Flow, Iyengar, Ayurveda, and energy medicine, as well as a variety of meditation styles. This program preps you for the requirements needed for students to register with Yoga Alliance as a 340 hour Yoga Alliance registered instructor. Note that our 340 hour program is over technically 300+ hours of study spread out over many months. This combined with your previous 200 hour training gives you the hours you need to complete your Yoga Alliance application for a 340 hour teacher. Let us know if you have questions as to how this works. It can be confusing, but we have it all figured out for you.

Transformative and geared towards true positive growth, development and self-mastery, our training aims to help bring out the best qualities in YOU. When one finds balance within through time-tested yoga, tantric and ayurvedic approaches and techniques, your teaching and your character flow effortlessly as we step into our lives with Kriya Shakti, or the power of perfect action, thought and speech – spontaneously doing, thinking and saying the right thing at the right time. We love yoga!

Directed by Tanya Boigenzahn, this training is also affiliated with ParaYoga and may host a variety of other senior and certified teachers and leading teachers in the field.

As a yoga instructor and bodyworker, I found myself tapped out. By making this committment to myself – I have brought back the passion in my own practice and deepened it at a level where it’s made a difference in my life and my teaching. ~Kris Layman, 340 hour grad

I have loved attending the 340 hour teacher training at Devanadi, it has deepened my knowledge to make all of the puzzle pieces come together and I feel more confident that I can go out and teach what I have learned here. ~Thea Jensen, 500 hour grad

I know we as yoginis are not supposed to get excited about getting into amazing poses… but since having a back injury, I’ve been unable to participate in the 340 hr classes fully these past couple months. However I was able to get into Scorpion fully for the first time, and have no back pain today! All I hear are your super instructions going through my mind when I’m getting into tough stuff like that…. YOU ARE AN AMAZING TEACHER! Thank you thank you thank you. ~Anonymous
