Learn the key elements of Yoga philosophy and how to incorporate them into your teaching and your life.

20hour online yoga philosophy training

Welcome to our online Yoga Philosophy training.

Are you considering embarking on a journey to become a yoga teacher but have limited or no knowledge in yogic philosophy? Perhaps you have already completed your 200hour TTC and felt you only just touched the surface on all that encompasses this broad term? Are you ready to take your practice and your teaching to the next level by learning how to incorporate these teachings? 

This course takes you through the history of yoga and its evolution from its ancient roots to the more common forms we are accustomed to in our modern society. We will not just explore the teachings of some of the most sacred texts on yoga, but we will learn how to apply them to the life of a ‘householder’. Householder life refers to living a yogic lifestyle while participating in the modern world, something that reading any of these ancient texts won’t teach you. 

We will explore some of the key aphorisms of The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. Specifically the ones that offer you a model for understanding your own makeup, how and why the mind works the way that it does, and the ways in which you may begin to re-pattern yourself in order to live a life that’s more true to your authentic peaceful nature. 

This course is 100% online and self paced!

  • Those who feel that there is more to yoga than asana (the physical practice)

  • Those who are interested in becoming a yoga teacher 

  • Those who are already certified yoga teachers but feel they could expand upon their knowledge in the Philosophy of Yoga

  • Those who are already teaching and feel uncomfortable talking about Yoga Philosophy in a class setting

  • Anyone looking to explore the true meaning of Yoga

Welcome to this online Yoga Philosophy Training! My name is Lisa. With more than a decade of combined practice and teaching experience, I was initially drawn to yoga through the physical practice of asana. It wasn’t until my first 200hour in India that I really started to dig in and discover a deep resonance with Yoga Philosophy.

One of the most prominent beliefs that I hold as a teacher is that we are first and foremost a student. This belief has led me to complete several teacher trainings across a variety of categories and styles, and I continue to do so presently.  

I love the idea of online trainings; their adaptability, availability and convenience has led me to complete dozens for my own educational purposes.This has helped me to discover the aspects that really support a student’s learning so that I may incorporate them in my own online courses. When not studying Yoga philosophy, spirituality, or the biomechanics of the human body; I love to travel the world to experience new places and cultures.
