  • Dates for training coming soon

Since 2005 Nica Yoga has been host to Instructors from all over the globe. Nica Yoga now partners with the most noteworthy and inspiring Instructors to bring you these authentic experiences. Our Teacher Trainings are 3-week sacred and spiritual immersion. The 200-hr foundational Yoga Alliance Certified training programs are designed for individuals who aspire to become teachers and also for those who would like to deepen their personal practice.

The program typically runs six days per week, beginning at 6:30 a.m. and ending at 9:00 p.m. each day (please see specific YTT dates for schedules). Upon completion of this course, you will receive a certificate, which qualifies you to register with Yoga Alliance. You will also have the opportunity to continue your studies through a one-month mentorship program at Nica Yoga (when available).

The trainings are based in the traditions of Hatha Yoga, with emphasis placed on Vedic philosophy and teachings. During the course you will learn to create and lead a basic yoga class, including pranayama, mediation, anatomy and the art of assisting and sequencing.

By understanding more about ourselves, we learn how to better relate with each other in an intentional and loving way. Awareness creates responsibility, and we can be of service to others and our planet by taking our practice off of our mats and into our world. Yoga is a life-long journey of personal transformation and spiritual growth. Let us embark on a spiritual journey following the yogic path
