The Yoga Synthesis™ Basic Certification Teacher Training gives a comprehensive view of the major yoga styles and methods with particular focus on Classical Hatha, Viniyoga, Iyengar Yoga, and Ashtanga Vinyasa. Special presentations on Yin Yoga, Kundalini Yoga, Partner Yoga and Thai yoga bodywork are given. Forms are compared and discussed to facilitate a broader understanding of the whole while continually emphasizing the core principles and commonalities. The practical aspects of teaching such as risk management, alignment and adjustment are combined with foundational theory in yoga philosophy and Ayurveda.

Participants are encouraged to dive wholeheartedly into their own practice, practice teaching and class observations in order to further their own development in yoga, and to gain practical insight into teaching technique, methodology and style. Each training session includes theory, postural practice, breathing practice, meditation, relaxation, discussion and teaching practicum. Main presentations and classes are taught by Raji Thron, with assistance from Yoga Synthesis™ Staff Teachers and graduates. Special presentations and programs are taught intermittently by our adjunct faculty to enhance and deepen the learning experience.
