Why Samadhi’s Teacher Training?

Multiple Paths

Whether you want to pursue a career teaching yoga, or want to peruse deeper levels of yoga as a student and practitioner, Samadhi has a program to support you. We offer both our 200 Hour Teacher Training as well as our Yogic Studies Immersion program for those not seeking the path of the teacher.

Mature Program

Samadhi’s Teacher Training is one of the longest running in Denver. Over the years we work with top teachers to refine, reform, and improve our offerings. Due to this practice, our training is one of the most well constructed trainings available.

Experiential Learning

You will start teaching the first week of the program to gain practice and experience teaching. By the end you will have experience teaching an entire yoga class. Along with this, we focus on the importance of your personal practice so that as you transform into a teacher you teach from experience as opposed to memorized techniques.

Sustainable Skills

Samadhi’s program will not just teach you how to teach yoga, we will also work with you to help you become a life-long student of yoga. The journey of the teacher never ends; the best teachers are the most dedicated students.

Diversity

Our curriculum does not focus on one style of yoga. We focus on giving you experience in many different modalities and styles so that you may find the one that speaks to your path and your teachings.

Teachers

Samadhi Yoga is honored to have many of Denver’s top teachers on staff, as well as nationally recognized instructors. As a center that focuses on traditional classical yoga, we attract teachers steeped in tradition. We also have many lead teachers to offer more diversity to our training, so that your certification is not limiting in what you are able to teach.

Community

You will become a part of the Samadhi Yoga family, making life-long connections and have a group of fellow yogis that will support you on your path.

Tradition

Our teachers and program are based upon classical lineages of yoga; we teach time-tested techniques.

Continued Support

After graduation you will receive support though many continuing education opportunities at Samadhi such as our Apprenticeship Program, teaching community classes, and discounts on events with your favorite teachers.
