Steeped in Ancient Wisdom:

The Masters Path 200 hour Teacher Training & Development is a comprehensive, experiential study of the art & science of Yoga, and its sister science Ayurveda. Students receive authentic instruction in classic yoga philosophy, Hatha Yoga, Pranayama, the yoga of Patanjali, including the 8 limbed path, as outlined in the Yoga Sutras, as well as deeper teachings sourced directly from select ancient tantric texts, as taught by the Masters of the Himalayas.

The primary focus is to offer a direct experience of personal transformation through the bridging of Eastern science of yoga, and the Western science of consciousness and matter. From this, students cultivate a rich and sustainable personal practice, and a foundation from which to teach, steeped in deep knowledge.

This program offers the foundational teachings of Kundalini Tantra, Ayurveda, the Yoga of Patanjali, and Vedanta as found in the teachings of the Vedas, Upanishads, and other texts considered 'yoga shastra', or the generally accepted truths of yoga science & philosophy. Students will take their knowledge of yoga and ayurveda science to design and lead an individual or group class or workshop that originates from a deeply therapeutic foundation of understanding and experience.

No student or class is the same: the systematic process of yoga science impacts the body, refines the mind, and provides a deep and abiding clarity to some of the most profound mysteries of the universe. 

Experience 7 accessible modules, that will cover Yoga Asana, Philosophy, Anatomy & Physiology, Alignment & Sequencing Principles, Level 1 Verbal & Physical Assists, Ayurveda, The Science of Mantra, The Science of Breath, Mindfulness & Meditation, Secret Practices of the Yoga Sutras, and a Teacher Development segment to help ensure you are prepared and confident to design and transform your own practice, as well as that of your students and clients.

It is recommended that the modules be taken in the suggested order, although it is not required. We are willing to accommodate your schedule as much as possible.

This training has been discounted 20% in consideration of the financial impact of COVID19 to our community and life plans - we hope to offer a program to help you navigate this, as well as all seasons of life with more finesse, patience, peace and grace.


The Masters Path Yoga Teacher Training & Development program is part of a 'Living Tradition', which is passed down from Teacher to Student (guruparampara) over the course of generations, preserving the ancient wisdom and sacred practices through written, oral, and experiential methods. This 200-Hour Teacher Training is certified and registered with Yoga Alliance, a national non-profit organization dedicated to education and support of yoga throughout the United States. Each student will receive a certificate of completion from the Masters Institute and are eligible for national recognition with Yoga Alliance.


**The training will be held online according to Yoga Alliance guidelines for COVID19 and state and local safety precautions
