our mission

The Maha Vira Yoga 2020 Yoga Teacher Training is a comprehensive training for compassionate leaders and for those who wish to deepen their own experience and understanding of yoga. This aim is achieved first by cultivating a personal practice, then learning how to share and offer this practice to others. In addition to being an opportunity to obtain the qualifications for becoming a certified yoga instructor, yoga teaching training often times becomes a great vehicle for personal growth. With this in mind, our teachers and staff seek to provide a learning environment that is safe and fully supports each student’s desire to learn, while also providing the tools to enable deeper self exploration. Students of this training should walk away passionate, self aware, ready to serve and take the seat of a teacher. 

What is Maha Vira?

In Sanskrit, Maha = Great, Vira = Hero. In this training, we will pursue the teachings of yoga--the mental, physical, and spiritual disciplines--that allow us to tap into our highest potential and serve the highest good. Within each of us is the capacity for greatness. The practice of yoga aims to unlock that potential so that it shines brightly into the world.

  • Yoga asana (posture, alignment and sequencing
