Teacher Directory

"If you teach yoga only for the body, it becomes a part of physical training, physical culture, physical exercise, which is incomplete. The body is not isolated from the mind or from the emotions or from the spirit....
Out of all the different traditions in the world, the Satyananda Yoga / Bihar Yoga tradition aims at integrating the physical, psychological and spiritual dimensions of yoga in one practice."
- Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati
SATYANANDA YOGA® is distinguished by the high level of training required of teachers in this tradition.
Level One teachers have completed Yogic Studies 1 and Teacher Training 1 modules, a process which takes an average of two years of study. Level Two teachers have also completed Yogic Studies 2 and Teacher Training 2, averaging about 4 years of study.
In order to maintain accreditation, teachers must make an ongoing commitment to pursue further professional development and ongoing teaching experience and maintain CPR/First Aid certification.
Our Satyananda Yoga Nidra® Teachers have completed 5 months of in-depth training in this technique.
