YogaWorks offers the most comprehensive YTT program for aspiring teachers and serious students of yoga by blending the best of yoga traditions from the East and the West. Our mission is to provide aspiring teachers with the foundation to instruct skillfully with compassion, integrity and safety, while honoring each YTT student's unique voice.
The dynamic and conscious practice of asana is the cornerstone of the YogaWorks method. To deepen one’s education, you will also study anatomy and physiology, explore yoga’s philosophical underpinnings, practice meditation and pranayama, as well as investigate the subtle body and Ayurveda.
Your YogaWorks certificate will be recognized and respected by yoga studios around the globe.
Our The YogaWorks YTT will deepen each student's personal practice, because this is the source for creative instruction. It will also include a comprehensive study of the techniques and mechanics of the fundamental yoga postures, while providing the tools necessary to teach yoga to others. To facilitate a more scientific understanding of the body, your training will include the study of functional anatomy. In addition, YogaWorks YTT moves beyond the physical to the study of meditation, pranayama, Ayurveda and the chakra system.
Over 2,000 years ago, the sage Patanjali described the process of yogic movement towards a higher consciousness in his treatise The Yoga Sutras. His teachings are a living, practical model that, once understood, can be applied to all aspects of life today. They serve to deepen the awareness of our relationship to ourselves, others and our environment.
The art of teaching is a form of yoga in itself, requiring sensitivity, compassion and practice. A teacher must encourage and inspire, being sensitive to the needs of individuals as well as a group.
YogaWorks’ founders — Maty Ezraty, Chuck Miller and Alan Finger — were all highly accomplished yoga practitioners who wanted to share the gifts they learned from their wise teachers. In 1987, they opened YogaWorks’ first studio in Santa Monica where they carefully weaved together many styles of yoga under one roof, and attracted the best teaching talent in southern California. They sought to uphold the 5,000-year tradition of yoga by infusing their programs with integrity, quality, authenticity and a warm welcome to every student.
In 1990, when the demand for well-trained yoga teachers began to grow, Maty and senior teacher Lisa Walford created the world-renowned YogaWorks Teacher Training program by blending the heat and flow of Ashtanga, the precise alignment of Iyengar and the holistic approach of Desikachar. YogaWorks — in conjunction with YogaBalance — is pleased to provide training based on direct teachings from yoga masters to yogis throughout northern New England.
Award-winning YogaBalance offers the widest selection of yoga classes and professional instructors in New Hampshire. We are partners with internationally renowned yoga master teachers and organizations, including YogaWorks, Yoga Journal, Kripalu, Himalayan Institute and Wanderlust. YogaBalance’s owners are regular presenters at yoga conferences across the country.
YogaBalance is the ideal location for serious yoga teacher training students throughout northern New England. Our YTT students come from New Hampshire, northern Massachusetts, Vermont, Maine and even upstate New York.
We look forward to having you join our next YTT program.
