About the Event
Curriculum The 200-Hour Kripalu Yoga Teacher Training certification includes both a solid grounding in technical skills and the development of an empathic, intuitive approach to teaching.
Graduates of Kripalu Yoga Teacher Training are in great demand for their in-depth knowledge, clear instruction, intuitive insights, and ability to guide students to the experience of inner peace that is the true essence of yoga. Kripalu Yoga teachers range in age from their 20s to 80s and can be found in community yoga studios; in urban and rural areas; in schools, prisons, and hospitals; and at workplaces from the United Nations to Cirque du Soleil. Because Kripalu supports individual inquiry and expression, the places you find our teachers are as varied as the teachers themselves.
The Kripalu teaching model incorporates many tools and techniques that guide students through their own journey as a teacher, allowing each graduate to emerge with a tool bag of foundational skills and knowledge. Kripalu graduates are prepared to take their teaching career to a wide variety of populations and environments.
