Our unique program builds upon the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, integrating the eight limbs into all aspects of our training. Delve deeply into Yoga philosophy, the biomechanics of asana, meditation, pranayama, subtle body theory, and sacred sound. We provide 250 hours of residential training in three 8-day sessions over the course of 10 months; you will be required to take an additional 50 hours in approved electives at MMC. For those holding a Yoga Alliance certificate from another school, we require that you attend the Yoga Intensive (see p. 6) which will introduce you to Mount Madonna’s style of training teachers. Completion of both the 200 and 300 hour programs qualifies you to apply for recognition by the Yoga Alliance as a RYT – 500, with additional teaching practice required by YA.
For more information, please see our YTT500 page.
