I cannot say enough about the level of excellence, depth, integrity & warmth of the ISHTA Teacher Training. I am beyond grateful for my experience at ISHTA and this incredible training. The teachers go above and beyond in every way. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!

The ISHTA Method
Focuses on the Individual

There are countless yoga teacher training programs to choose from. Why choose ISHTA?

The ISHTA method is a uniquely modern, individualized and integrated approach to the ancient science of yoga. Our training focuses on the how the same teachings can apply across students with many differences. Everybody comes to the mat with different backgrounds and histories, and every body is different.

Through this lens, we explore posture and anatomy, 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.

The ISHTA Yoga 200-Hour Teacher Training was a life-changing experience. The well-rounded curriculum is well thought out and challenging. It really helped me grow not only as a practitioner of Yoga but opened me up to a whole new world of Ancient teachings and Philosophy.
