ISHTA Across the Globe

In addition to our 200-Hour and 300-Hour  teacher training programs in New York City, ISHTA Yoga has grown into a global network of schools. If you’re looking for a training that’s a little closer to home, or you’re yearning to adventure to a new city, we’ve got a training for you.

300-Hour TT: Art of Touch Module in Finland – August 2nd-13th, 2021

The Art of Touch In this 10-day immersion, we will explore the nuanced practice of giving hands-on adjustments to all body types. The art of touch requires mastery and sensitivity, and the ISHTA approach is one that integrates constant practice, feedback, and intuition. This module can be done as part of the ISHTA 300 hour training (it is one of the three modules that compose the 300 hour training), or as a stand alone training for a 200 hour trained teacher who wants to deepen their knowledge and skills.

Physiologically, our hands occupy about 30% of the sensory cortex in the brain. From an energetic perspective, they are the transmitters of Shakti, which is the mother-nature force that governs us. The hands also relate to the heart and throat chakras, so how we touch relates to both how we feel and how we communicate. Learn how to apply the principles of ISHTA yoga and the seven segments of alignment to hands-on adjustments, enhancing both your teaching and your connection to your students.

You will learn hands on assists to basic asanas, sun salutations and restorative poses. Hands-on adjustments can elevate the experience of your students in your class and enhance your skills as a teacher.

ISHTA 200 Hour Teacher Training Six Modules, starting October 2021 – Raja Yoga


This 200 H, Yoga Alliance Certified teacher training, will be set in a modular format spanning over 6 weekends, from October 2021 to March 2022. With an increasing amount of yoga teacher trainings out there, it can be hard to orient oneself to find one that offers high quality and a sound approach to yoga. The ISHTA trainings ensures that you will be guided by highly competent yoga teachers, in a warm and humble way, and that you will learn tools that prepare you well for your own teaching journey, or that lets you deepen your own practice regardless of whether you wish to teach or not.

What is ISHTA yoga?

ISHTA stands for Integrated Science of Hatha, Tantra, and Ayurveda, or a combination of physical, energetic, and healing practices. But ISHTA has a double meaning that stretches back to the very roots of yoga. ISHTA is also a Sanskrit word translating to “that which resonates with the individual spirit,” emphasizing the personal journey we encourage and guide our students to embrace.

What makes the ISHTA Yoga Teacher Training Program unique?

The lineage and teaching of ISHTA Yoga is a uniquely modern, individualized and integrated approach to the ancient science of yoga. While the body is studied and experienced in detail through in-depth daily practice, posture labs and studies of anatomy and asana, ISHTA provides a comprehensive foundation for all aspects of yoga, including thorough studies of the practice and teaching of subtle and causal body anatomies; pranayama and kriya; meditation; Tantric philosophy; and Ayurveda, the ancient Indian life science. The ISHTA-trained practitioner learns to teach safely, confidently, and compassionately to the individual. Our philosophy is to recognize the inherent strengths of each student and to enhance these strengths through personal practice.

What does the training include?

  • Postures
  • Sequencing
  • Anatomy
  • Yoga philosophy
  • Basic pranayama and meditation techniques
  • Kriya techniques
  • Tantra
  • Introduction to ayurveda and how to incorporate ayurveda in your yoga teachings
