Program

This 200-hour program provides everything you need, as mandated by Yoga Alliance, in philosophy, anatomy, business, wisdom, sutras, kriyas, meditation, pranayama, adjustment, the art of teaching, language of energy, and nutrition. You will get to experience community classes in the park, drum circles in the evening, sunrise beach meditations, field trips. and more.

Zen Den Yoga School and Retreats teaches Sadhana Yoga, the yoga of personal spiritual practice, including both Ashtanga inspired Vinyasa and the truest traditional Sivananda Hatha flows taught in one-month intensive classes. The approach from Ira Ohm and his wife Valerie is contemporary and eclectic, they bring to life the ancient teachings of yoga through accessible spiritual lessons.

One month intensive courses are Monday through Friday, and Sunday 07:45 to 15:30 with one hour lunch, and two 15 minute breaks throughout the day, you will also meet every Tuesday evening from 17:30 to 20:00. Saturdays students have off.

The graduates commonly report receiving much more than a yoga certificate from the program. It is often described as a life-changing experience that provides an opportunity for individuals to know themselves and a deep and lasting way. Zen Den Yoga School offers the students the opportunity to embark on a journey that brings them to a place of deeper knowing.

The yoga teacher training offers much more than the physical aspect of yoga, it guides you to a path of inner knowing. You will do a two-hour asana practice in the morning and in the afternoon you will do two to three hours of asana workshop. Then there is the asana and other practice for your homework daily. Be prepared for the challenges of this intensive on all levels - physically, mentally, and emotionally.

The schedule includes multiple yoga classes, group discussions, as well as other training and bonding events. Before you arrive you will be required to begin your yoga anatomy online course. Upon arrival, you will receive the 200-hours yoga teacher training manual, The Bhagavad Gita, Ashtanga yoga - David Swenson, The Sivananda Companion to yoga, and Yoga Sutras.

The students get the opportunity to practice asanas and the respective alignments; explore the meaning of the yoga sutras and Bhagavad Gita; experience and learn several meditation techniques, and perform regular peer-teaching. They also get introductions to the business and marketing of being a yoga teacher, including a thorough understanding of how to be advantageous in saturated markets.

Many of the graduates continue to practice with Zen Den Yoga School after they graduate; some even teach at the studio, but all share a bond and stay in touch.
