Hatha Yoga Teacher Certification
Apr 8 @ 6:45 pm – Apr 18 @ 5:00 pm
Hatha Yoga Teacher Certification @ Yasodhara Ashram | Kootenay Bay | British Columbia | Canada

After completing the Yoga Development Course, the next step in teacher training is the Hatha Yoga Teacher Certification. In this course you will learn how to teach classical asanas and integrate spiritual practices into the classroom. The approach is experiential – learning through teaching in small groups. You are encouraged to teach from a sense of self-acceptance – listening to your own body and offering from your own experience. Prior to certification you are also asked to complete a practicum of leading 6 classes (either at the Ashram or elsewhere) and reporting on what you learned.

Prerequisites:
This training builds on the foundation laid through the 675 hours of practice and instruction of the Yoga Development Course.

Hidden Language Hatha Yoga Teacher Certification @ Yasodhara Ashram

This two-week teacher certification program will deepen your understanding of the system of Hatha Yoga that Swami Radha called “the Hidden Language,” which integrates the asanas with the power of mind and symbolism. You will learn —through your own personal reflection, study and practice teaching—how to offer the gift of Hidden Language to others .

Take this next step in using metaphor, symbolism and written reflections to help students access the insightful messages that the asanas can bring. The process involves trusting your own intuition and that of your students. Learn to create a safe, light framework and fill it with an atmosphere that empowers each person’s awareness. Teach the unity of yoga, where body and mind communicate.

Prerequisites: 
The Yoga Development Course, as well as the Hatha Yoga Teacher Certification. Completion of the YDC book reflection project is also a requirement.

Renewal: Every three years.

Hidden Language Hatha Yoga Teacher Certification
Jun 9 @ 6:45 pm – Jun 23 @ 5:30 pm
Hidden Language Hatha Yoga Teacher Certification @ Yasodhara Ashram

This two-week teacher certification program will deepen your understanding of the system of Hatha Yoga that Swami Radha called “the Hidden Language,” which integrates the asanas with the power of mind and symbolism. You will learn —through your own personal reflection, study and practice teaching—how to offer the gift of Hidden Language to others.

Take this next step in using metaphor, symbolism and written reflections to help students access the insightful messages that the asanas can bring. The process involves trusting your own intuition and that of your students. Learn to create a safe, light framework and fill it with an atmosphere that empowers each person’s awareness. Teach the unity of yoga, where body and mind communicate.

Prerequisites: 
The Yoga Development Course, as well as the Hatha Yoga Teacher Certification. Completion of the YDC book reflection project is also a requirement.

Renewal: Every three years.

Hatha Yoga Teacher Certification
Apr 9 @ 6:45 pm – Apr 19 @ 5:00 pm
Hatha Yoga Teacher Certification @ Yasodhara Ashram | Kootenay Bay | British Columbia | Canada

After completing the Yoga Development Course, the next step in teacher training is the Hatha Yoga Teacher Certification. In this course you will learn how to teach classical asanas and integrate spiritual practices into the classroom. The approach is experiential – learning through teaching in small groups. You are encouraged to teach from a sense of self-acceptance – listening to your own body and offering from your own experience. Prior to certification you are also asked to complete a practicum of leading 6 classes (either at the Ashram or elsewhere) and reporting on what you learned.

Prerequisites:
This training builds on the foundation laid through the 675 hours of practice and instruction of the Yoga Development Course.

Kundalini & Dream Yoga Teacher Certification
Jul 20 @ 6:45 pm – Aug 3 @ 5:30 pm
Kundalini & Dream Yoga Teacher Certification @ Yasodhara Ashram

This intensive two-week teacher certification program is based on a foundation of self-inquiry and experiential learning/teaching. Using the questions and practices in Kundalini Yoga for the West, you will study the potential of each level of consciousness, then teach in small groups with your colleagues. To access guidance from the unconscious mind, you will explore the symbolism of your own dreams and learn to help others in their personal interpretations, using Swami Radha’s dream yoga method (as elucidated in Realities of the Dreaming Mind).

This certification program can help you gain confidence in teaching the spiritual dimensions of yoga by focusing on Light, building on your personal experience and learning to create a framework adaptable to your students’ needs.

Prerequisites: Completion of the Yoga Development Course and the YDC book reflections.

Hidden Language Hatha Yoga Teacher Certification
Aug 6 @ 6:45 pm – Aug 20 @ 5:30 pm
Hidden Language Hatha Yoga Teacher Certification @ Yasodhara Ashram

This two-week teacher certification program will deepen your understanding of the system of Hatha Yoga that Swami Radha called “the Hidden Language,” which integrates the asanas with the power of mind and symbolism. You will learn —through your own personal reflection, study and practice teaching—how to offer the gift of Hidden Language to others.

Take this next step in using metaphor, symbolism and written reflections to help students access the insightful messages that the asanas can bring. The process involves trusting your own intuition and that of your students. Learn to create a safe, light framework and fill it with an atmosphere that empowers each person’s awareness. Teach the unity of yoga, where body and mind communicate.

Prerequisites: 
The Yoga Development Course, as well as the Hatha Yoga Teacher Certification. Completion of the YDC book reflection project is also a requirement.

Renewal: Every three years.

Yoga Development Course 2019: Celebrating 50 Years of Learning
Jan 9 @ 6:45 pm – Apr 9 @ 5:00 pm
Yoga Development Course 2019: Celebrating 50 Years of Learning @ Yasodhara Ashram

The Yoga Development Course (YDC) offers three months of yoga in the deepest sense of the word, as a path to Liberation. Come and expand your understanding. Heal. Give yourself the spiritual nourishment you need. Challenge yourself to evolve.

This program, set in the Ashram’s pristine forest and lake during quiet winter, offers a balance of self-inquiry with group work in a community of like-minded people, a process that leads to new discoveries and purposeful change.

During the YDC, spiritual practices such as mantra, dream yoga and Light meditations help you access hidden levels of mind. And three months of reflection supports a process of clarification. Who are you now and how do you want to live your life? Which old patterns are limiting? Where have you created a helpful foundation?

2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the YDC. Swami Radha’s original vision is vibrantly alive at the core of this program while Swami Radhananda’s experiential learning approach updates the teaching process.

The YDC is the prerequisite for our Teacher Certification programs.

We also offer an extended-stay program after the YDC for up to five months at no charge to support students in the work they have done during the YDC.   Visit the YDC page to find out more.

Hatha Yoga Teacher Certification @ Yasodhara Ashram | Kootenay Bay | British Columbia | Canada

Prior to certification you are also asked to complete a practicum of leading 6 classes (either at the Ashram or elsewhere) and reporting on what you learned.

Prerequisites:
This training builds on the foundation laid through the 675 hours of practice and instruction of the Yoga Development Course.
