Welcome to Keller Yoga’s 200-Hour Teacher Training Program.
This program was established in the teachings of the Himalayan Institute, which are rooted in a strong lineage of the Himalayan Masters. Drawing from these teachings that have been passed down from teacher to student for thousands of years, you will study the foundational texts from which yoga has come into practice, and you will investigate your body and mind as a way to lead you back toward your Self. Not only does yoga help to refine our bodies and minds, it enables us to transcend the strong-holds of old habits and ego-identification.
Our intensive study is designed for focused learning. Potent and regular yogic practices and philosophical studies are the platform from which we teach. Your commitment to our syllabus will immerse you in the yogi’s sacred toolbox for enlightened living.
If you have benefited from the healing effects of yoga and are ready to deepen your practice and share your light with others, then this program is for you. Our training will not only empower you with confidence, you will meet life long friends and a community that will be a source of support and comfort as you take this inward journey of self-discovery, leading you into a life of teaching. As those around you witness the great changes that unfold in your life, you will realize that in every moment, we teach those around us through our example.
