Yoga Teacher Training

“Yoga serves the individual,
and does so thru inviting transformation,
rather than by giving information.”
T.K.V. Desikachar 

Since 1996, High Desert Yoga has been offering and expanding our school of yoga. The High Desert Yoga teacher trainings are inspiring, transformational, and some of the most comprehensive in the country, featuring an integrated curriculum taught by teachers with decades of experience. Our high-quality program includes experiential sessions, highly structured student teaching, an overview of yoga therapeutics, and training in many specialty areas in order to deepen and diversify your education.

Many optional specialty trainings are available to supplement our 200- and 300-hour programs. We also host trainings and workshops regularly with world-renowned master teachers such as Francois Raoult, Ramanand Patel, Judith Lasater, Angela Farmer, Donna Farhi, Rama Joyti Vernon, Elise Browning Miller, and Laura Antelmi. (See upcoming workshops.)

High Desert Yoga’s teacher training programs are registered with Yoga Alliance. Yoga Alliance’s 500-hour Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT 500) is currently the most widely recognized registration for teaching yoga in the United States. Students who have completed both a 200- and a 300-hour registered yoga teacher training program in addition to 100 hours of practice teaching will be eligible to register with Yoga Alliance as a 500-hour Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT 500). Students who have completed an equivalent qualifying 200-hour teacher training program at another school can fulfill their 500-hour requirement by completing our 300-hour program.
