Our 235hr Yoga Teacher 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 faculty 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.

The program is a registered school with Yoga Alliance. Upon completion of the program students will receive a Certificate of Completion and can apply for registration with Yoga Alliance as a Registered Yoga Teacher at the 200-hour level (RYT 200).

Prerequisite: 12 months of being a yoga student at any yoga studio or program.

Thorough comprehensive instruction and an inclusive class setting, I received an excellent education through the school’s Summer Teacher Training Intensive. The core and guest instructors have the experience and know-how to provide incredible teachings that encouraged me to both pursue a career as a yoga teacher and also further my education. I couldn’t recommend the school more highly.

    *ROAD TRIP GUEST TEACHER WEEKEND in Minneapolis at Devanadi Yoga

    We realize that travel can be tricky, but every single student in our past Fargo TT groups overwhelmingly suggested we keep the Road Trip Guest Weekend as they loved the experience, felt a deeper connection to Devanadi, and got a chance to study with expert teachers IN PERSON that are not able to travel to Fargo at this point. We will discuss options and details for this part of your training during weekend training. We DO have many students in the Twin Cities that are often able to host you, plus it’s FUN!

    Please contact us by filling out the form below and selecting “Fargo” as your location choice. We will email you a link to our Fargo Student Handbook and online application.
