About Integral Yoga

Integral Yoga (IY) teacher training programs are based on the teachings of Sri Swami Satchidananda. IY trainings focus on the whole person and follows an inward, spiritually-focused lineage of yoga. The training is designed to lead students towards experiences of Self-realisation. Our goal is to educate our yoga teachers to nurture a consistent and personalised practice, experience the Six Branches of Integral Yoga (going beyond Yoga as a form of fitness) and learn how to teach in a respectful, trauma-sensitive and professional manner.

About IY’s Raja Yoga Teacher Training

This advanced teacher training focuses on the science of the mind and of meditation. Students not only deepen their practice towards self-realisation, but also how to teach the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, Meditation, Mantras and the Eight-Limbed Path of Yoga to others in a modern and relevant way.


  • In-depth exploration of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali

  • Incorporate teachings of the Eight-Limbed path into daily living

  • Refine personal practice of asana, pranayama and meditaiton

  • Public speaking, leading discussions, answering questions, teaching courses

  • Neuroscience and brain anatomy


Upon successful completion of the training, each graduate receives a certificate of completion from the Integral Yoga Teaching Academy (a Registered Yoga School with the Yoga Alliance), for Integral Yoga Raja Yoga Teacher Training qualification ( 150-hours of additional teacher training).

The certificate qualifies towards the advanced 300-hrs certification with Integral Yoga Academy and towards the Yoga Alliance’s 500 hour designation. The Yoga Alliance is an internationally recognised voluntary alliance of organisations and teachers dedicated to uphold the integrity of yoga, establish standards for yoga teachers, and provide support for yoga professionals.**

(Integral Yoga’s Raja Yoga Teacher Training + Integral Yoga’s Intermediate Teacher Training = 300 hours of advanced yoga teacher training)
