Mount Madonna Institute Teacher Trainings

Mount Madonna Center hosts Mount Madonna Institute

In a beautiful mountaintop setting amid the redwoods, overlooking Monterey Bay, learn from more than 20 different instructors trained by master yogi Baba Hari Dass.   The YTT 200 is comprehensive classical yoga rooted in Patanjali's Yoga Sutras (Ashtanga Yoga System) and Hatha Yoga practices: shatkarma (bodily purifications), mudra (positions that seal and direct energy), pranayama (breathing practices), asana (postures), and dhyana (meditation). It is our intention that those who wish to teach have the tools to offer a beginning yoga class upon completion of the training, and have some understanding of the vast background of this great science and spiritual practice. In our 300-hour program, we go deeper into these studies as well as other aspects of yoga practice and theory. Please see our website for further details. Mount Madonna is an approved school registered with the Yoga Alliance for 200- and 300-hour trainings and a Prenatal specialty.
