Where Truth and Tradition Meet Modern Theory

Samyama is a Yoga Alliance registered teacher training provider. Our two and three-hundred hour trainings open the door to your becoming the teacher you were meant to be. Samyama’s Dharma Path trainings fuse a deep love for the sacred beginnings of yoga with modern ideas and outlook. Taught by some of the most innovative, passionate and compassionate teachers in the Bay Area, students are immersed in the methodology, philosophy and traditional foundations that support the 21st century Western yoga journey.

Our next 200-hour Dharma Path Teacher Training will begin on Sunday, October 7.  Lead by Program Director John Berg with support from Louis Jackson, Hillary Easom, Hana Raftery, Devin Begley, Misako Matsuoka and Mimm Patterson, our 15-week Dharma Path program (with time off in November and December) promises to nurture your teaching skills, deepen your personal practice and open your heart and mind.
