Energize Your Yoga Practice
I AM Yoga® Teacher Training is so much more than becoming certified as a yoga teacher. It is an entry point for you to access the mysterious depths of yoga and experience its authentic origins.

In these times, yoga has become massively popular. Ancient practices previously unknown to the Western World have become ubiquitous and mainstream. What were once carefully kept secrets are now easily available. In modern yoga practice, what’s missing is not technique; we know what to do and where to learn more. What’s missing is how to approach the practice of yoga in a way that progressively awakens the experiential depths of peace and integration which it was born to unearth within each one of us.

I AM Yoga® merges what we study and what we practice into one unified system. Finding inspiration in the ancient yogic texts, I AM Yoga® trains practitioners to dynamically weave the teachings of these scriptures into their yoga practice, blending knowledge and experience into one embodied expression. Our method equips its practitioners to expertly decode the original teachings of yoga, unveiling its precision in meaning, relevance, and modern application in today’s world.

The I AM Yoga® Level 1 Immersion:
A personal intensive designed to develop aspiring and advanced practitioners alike. Whether you are looking to deepen and energize your current practice or are seeking the guidance necessary to begin a profound yoga journey, this program provides a life-long foundation for you to practice from.

Training in the I AM Yoga® tradition provides master level guidance suited for every-body. Throughout our intensive, we will follow the Yoga Sutras as our roadmap while employing the specific tools of I AM Yoga® to bring the relevance of this ancient knowledge into our current experience. Not only will you leave equipped to practice yoga poses with skill and in the unified manner in which they were originally inspired, but, more importantly, you will leave empowered to carry the experience of integration into your daily life activities.

Under the guidance of our expert faculty, you will receive:
• Transformational discourses with International Yoga Master, Yogi Amrit Desai (Gurudev Shri Amritji)
• The I AM Yoga® perspective on energy, anatomy, pranayama (breathing techniques) and meditation
• The tools necessary to practice yoga poses not simply as a form of physical exercise, but as a medium for self-study and personal transformation
• Practical techniques to move from everyday mental & emotional disturbances into lasting peace & well-being

Benefits
• Maximize the expression & energy flow of every posture through the application of “press points” and “energetic extensions”, a unique feature to I AM Yoga®
• Build strength, alleviate stress, and learn how to use yoga practice to rebalance and restore the nervous system
• Recognize and release behaviors that are affecting your health and wellbeing
• Reclaim your peace by understanding how our habituated mental and emotional patterning obscures our ability to fully access personal freedom & well-being.
