340hr (RYT 500) Yoga Teacher Training & Intensives

Advanced Training on yoga therapy, ayurveda, tantra, meditation, bhakti, anatomy, one-on-one work, some of the most relevant and renowned guest teachers and more!

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.

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.

Transformative and geared towards true positive growth, development and self-mastery, our training aims to help bring out the best qualities in YOU.

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.

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!

Prerequisite: Must have 200 hour program certificate, or equivalent, from either Devanadi Yoga OR another approved program.

The program is a longer, richer, & deeper study of topics you may have been introduced to in your initial 200 hour program.
