Alignment & Vinyasa

Once you’ve finished your 200-hour foundational training you will likely come to the realization that teaching Hatha Yoga is far bigger and more nuanced than most people realize. In this major you will have the opportunity to build on the knowledge and skills you acquired in your foundational training by taking a deep dive into alignment, sequencing, anatomy and physiology.

Best of all, with our robust catalog of training options, you can pick and choose coursework that speaks to the aspects of yoga that you feel most passionate about teaching. Whether you want to teach more dynamic flow-based yoga, want to refine your knowledge and eye for alignment or you want to offer gentle and restorative yoga to your students, this major is the perfect place to land.

The 50-hour Advanced Core Studies is a requirement under all majors.

Psychology & Mindfulness

For thousands of years, yogis have explored the vastness of the human mind through the practice of yoga and meditation. Likewise, modern psychology has also explored the human psyche and arrived at many of the same truths as ancient yogis.

In this major you will have the opportunity to explore the intersection of ancient practices like yoga and meditation with modern psychology. Perfect for those trained in psychology and those wanting to work in tandem with psychology professionals, this major gives you a broad array of coursework to understand how yoga, meditation and Pranayama can help students live more mindfully. When indicated, this major is a perfect complement to more modern approaches to mental health and wellness.

Yoga is perfectly designed to promote overall wellness in the body and to complement other modalities within western medicine.

In this major you will have the opportunity to explore everything from advanced anatomy to yoga and meditation techniques that support health and wellness in the face of a number of common conditions. For those that work with other healthcare providers, you will learn about the latest research and how yoga practices can be complementary.

Whether you want to work in a doctor’s office, at an HMO or simply support your students more fully in the quest for health and wellness, you will find both knowledge and inspiration in this major.
