Teacher Training

The 200-hr (IYT – Integrative Yoga Therapy) Teacher Training foundation program is for those who want to offer Yoga as a healing art, supplement their existing practice with yoga, or deepen their own personal practice. Along with offering Yoga with a focus on health and wellness to the general public, you will learn tools and techniques to teach Yoga-based programs in a wide variety of complementary health care settings. The 200-Hr IYT immersion program is from the lineage of Joseph and Lillian Le Page and utilizes their training manual coupled with hands on expertise and wisdom from Nancy Levenson, the Affiliate Program Director.

This program is open to anyone with a basic foundation in Yoga and is especially suitable for body-workers, health care professionals, occupational therapists, physical therapists, clinical psychologists, respiratory therapists, family therapists, social workers, experienced yoga instructors,  and anyone desiring to deepen their own personal awareness of their body/mind and spirit.

The 200-HR program is the foundation program and Integrative Yoga Therapy also offers a national 300-HR and 800-HR program that leads to a Yoga Therapist Certification. You can learn more about those advanced programs at Integrative Yoga Therapy

The Program Graduates have a few words to add…

“Very thorough…I got so much more than if I had chosen to go elsewhere and I researched many training programs.  I believe Nancy’s passion made the program come alive and I felt excited to pursue this passion for helping others heal with the same enthusiasm.”

“Put this one on your life bucket list — this year with Nancy was a total win-win proposition for me, personally.”

“Nancy’s ability to create a process and understanding of yoga was fantastic.  I found this to be an impactful and fun way to deepen my understanding of yoga and would definitely recommend this training to anyone that asks and think that 200 HR yoga instructors can definitely benefit from the depth this program offered.” 

“The training was very intense and detailed, so much more than I thought I would receive.  I appreciated the personal time taken to ensure that I understood key concepts through demonstrations, examples, and real case studies.”

“Putting together mini classes right away was so rewarding.  Nancy’s knowledge is amazing and I’m so grateful to have been a part of the training and have this knowledge shared with me.  I feel fully prepared to step into a new role adding therapeutic yoga to my practice.”

“This training opened the door to the deep, rich, vast world of yoga.  Nancy is an inspiring instructor who challenges students to push beyond any perceived limitations to reach new levels of understanding through applied learning techniques and individualized instruction.  I would encourage all healing modalities to deepen their own practice with therapeutic yoga.”
