5 Lessons from the Program

Check out our blog for a glimpse into the Temple's yoga teacher training program. Here are 5 lessons from the Hatha Yoga Teacher Training.

Students are saying …

"The Hatha Yoga Teacher Training program was a life-changing experience for me. The course provided me with a firm foundation for how to structure and sequence poses, which has given my asana practice much more focus and direction. The instruction in anatomy & physiology and yoga philosophy was comprehensive but presented in a way that made these areas accessible and easy to understand.

When I enrolled, my goals were to deepen my own practice and to learn more about yoga. Actually teaching hatha yoga was not something I necessarily thought I would want to do. However, after going through the program, I felt prepared to teach and have greatly enjoyed sharing the vast benefits of yoga with others.

Taking the step from yoga practitioner to teacher has been a very rewarding one, and I am grateful for the training and guidance I received from the Temple of Kriya Yoga."

"The Hatha Yoga Teacher Training Home Study Course gave me the opportunity to learn at my own pace, but was structured enough to keep me disciplined and on target. The information I received was well organized and impressively put together. The tapes of Kriyanada's teachings were very inspirational and rewarding. THIS IS WHAT I HAD BEEN SEARCHING FOR!"

Camella N.

"The Hatha Yoga Teachers Training Home Study Course truly changed my life. Through the program's teachings my personal practice was significantly deepened and even now, I find myself returning to the printed materials and tapes and constantly finding new information to increase my growth as a student, and a teacher."

Sherry T.

"I can say without a doubt, that the programs and instruction I have received from the Temple of Kriya Yoga have changed the course of my life - everything from knowing how to safely teach a yoga posture to being able to clearly see and solve problems in my own life. The knowledge and support from the Temple has given me the ability to achieve my own happiness."
