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.
