Structural Yoga™, a form of classical yoga, allows teachers to adapt yoga to individual needs and provides teachings that ultimately translate off the mat into your daily life. Structural Yoga™ instructors are trained to reach people with a broad spectrum of needs, from those able to participate in traditional yoga classes, to those with movement restrictions, injuries or health challenges, who require modifications and a very compassionate, healing approach.

The SYTT is taught in five modules, over seven months.  The program length provides time to integrate the classroom materials, study, practice and complete the required homework.  Experiential learning, through your spiritual practice (sadhana), will be most valuable in understanding the teachings.

Structural Yoga™ teachers are trained in anatomy, biomechanics of movement, yoga postures, breath-work, meditation and ayurvedic principles. Teachers share this knowledge with their students, giving them tools to advance their yoga practice with a safe, intelligent and well-laid foundation, that can help bring about the most profound personal growth – physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Structural Yoga™ Teaching Training provides:
  • An in-depth study in a classical yoga style that adapts to individual needs.
  • A training rooted in the ancient teachings of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras
  • A strong foundation for continuing education for Yoga Therapy certification.
  • A comprehensive exploration for the management and healing of structural anomalies.
