The main requirement is to have a desire to help others and guide them on their yoga journey. All applicants are required to have had at least 50 hours of Dharma Yoga instruction. To the extent possible, such instruction should consist of attending classes with Sri Dharma Mittra, retreats or workshops with him, or classes with Dharma Yoga Registered Teachers (DYRTs) who have extensive training under him.
If necessary, you can satisfy this requirement by attending Sri Dharma Mittra’s streaming classes via Zoom as well as AloMoves, YogaVibes, OmStars, or Vimeo.
The Dharma Yoga Life of a Yogi (DY LOAY) 200-hour Teacher Training is an exploration of yoga with an emphasis placed on mastering both physically and through teaching the Dharma I and Dharma Gentle class series. Also covered at the 200-hour level are: physical anatomy, Bhagavad-Gita, psychic anatomy (Chakras, Nadis, Koshas, etc.), The Yoga-Sutras, Pranayama (breathing exercises), Mudras, Bandhas, Kriyas (actions that lead to purification), Deep Relaxation, basic meditation, assisting and adjusting and yoga philosophy.
As so much is unclear right now in terms of what will and will not be possible in 2021, we will most likely delay our announcements regarding our 2021 schedule of trainings until later this fall. It is impossible to say right now whether these trainings will need to be 100% online, in-person, or some combination of the two. We will gladly update the site and application once we have this information available.
