Indra Yoga Institute offers a cohesive, multi-faceted approach to teacher training. Our diverse facilitator team is comprised of highly-trained, inspiring professionals with a profound understanding of Yoga and Ayurveda’s transformative power. This course will help you define who you are as a teacher and community leader and how you can best serve those around you. The coursework in this program is 300 hours and will qualify graduates to register with Yoga Alliance at the RYT-300 and RYT-500 level.
Indra’s 300-hour advanced training focuses on the expansion of your own sacred consciousness and will support and strengthen your understanding of your unique role as a holistic health practitioner and community leader. We aim to empower you to feel confident sharing the true essence of Yoga, far beyond asana and allowing these ancient practices to become accessible to wider and more diverse circles of community. Indra is committed to supporting you through a transformational journey and evolution as a conscious being.
Our 300-hour program combines several unique paths: 8 limbs of Yoga, Ayurveda, Pranayama, Meditation, Trauma-Informed Training, Social Justice Responsibility, Ancient Wisdom Traditions, and much more. Each training is a careful curation of subject matter to guide students further along in their professional and personal wellness journey. As advanced teachers, you will participate in rich discussion, practice, and teaching opportunities alongside distinguished facilitators and guest instructors.

Everyone is wholeheartedly accepted and encouraged. Together we focus on how we can make yoga more accessible for all and create and hold space where everyone has an opportunity to feel safe.
