200 hour BUDDHIST YOGA TRAINING

September 2020-may 2021

We are dedicated to supporting a high quality education for yoga practitioners and movement professionals. We prioritize mediation & somatic awareness though the teachings of the Buddha & Western Somatic traditions.

 

Our 200hr T.T. course is a mixture of self-study and live classes (zoom). In addition to the live classes students will have access to our online platform where you will take classes and complete course work at your own pace. There are live classes where we will meet and discuss the course, address questions and cover new material. Although this is an online program we emphasize community interaction and thus there is plenty of opportunity to connect with our vibrant community of practitioners for support. We believe that community is the foundation of all yoga practice and we strongly cultivate that here at Method Yoga.
