Samarya Yoga Teacher Training
“Your honest, loving approach to yoga makes it accessible to so many people. It makes the parts that I struggle with possible. It has allowed me to go from a yogathlete to a yogi. To change my focus from bodily perfection, to acceptance of my perfection as I am.”
Do you desire to teach yoga from a place of authenticity and purpose?
Are you concerned about teaching a coopted practice and committed to understanding yoga’s roots, history and depth?
Are you looking for an active, engaged yoga community, held by wisdom elders, in which you can explore, question, contribute and thrive?
The Samarya Yoga Teacher Trainings are unlike any other yoga teacher training you will find. We emphasize self-reflection and exploration through the practice and teachings of yoga. As students explore yoga in relationship to their own lives and belief systems, they will discover their ability to share these ancient healing techniques in their communities.
The framework provided by The Samarya Center, a nationally-recognized yoga research and education center, focuses on yoga as a primary and adjunct healing modality. The principles of Integrated Movement Therapy®, the therapy approach developed at The Samarya Center, are derived from yoga and as such are interwoven throughout the training.
An enthusiasm for service to community is strongly encouraged, reflecting The Samarya Center’s mission to provide access to the state of yoga to all people. In this spirit, we ask prospective students to reflect on a series of discernment steps to make sure that this training will be exactly what you want, and that you will be the ideal student for the training. Discernment steps can be found here.
This teacher training will be a life-changing experience for anyone who wants to learn more about yoga, even if you don’t want to be a teacher (yet). It is especially appropriate for: beginning yoga teachers, dedicated students, therapists wishing to practice IMT, yoga teachers who want more information on working with special populations, and students wishing further study with Molly and the Samarya Yoga Teacher Training Faculty. (Required for those applying for IMT certification.)
