"I could honestly write a book about how amazing this program is! Going through the 200 hour teacher training at the Joschi Yoga institute has been one of the most amazing experiences for me! Joschi and Monika, along with the other teachers, gave me the tools I need to succeed as a yoga teacher. They truly care for their students and want each and every one them to be successful. This program has introduced me to new people, new languages, and most importantly embraced my inner self. The program is intense and gives an in-depth training for the mind and body. I met such amazing people and will carry this experience throughout my yoga teaching career. It is a unique atmosphere with a hands on approach to learning. Joschi and Monika made themselves accessible to any questions we might have and always made sure we understood all the content. They make an awesome team and are wonderful people... I couldn't recommend their teacher training more!" - Noelle K.
"I have been practicing and teaching yoga outside of New York for a few years. I knew moving to New York I would need more training so I decided to do Joschi's teacher training program. The teacher training program is AMAZING! There are people of many skill levels in my teacher training but it really pushes you to be a better instructor and more than that, it has helped my personal yoga practice more than I could possibly express. The studio is beautiful, the teachers are amazing and because of the wonderful teachers and teacher trainers I have deepened my personal practice. Thank you Joschi!!!" - Noelia F.
"This 200hr course is one of the best things I have ever done- it exceeded my expectations by a wide margin on many levels and I recommend it to ANYONE!! Whether you plan on making yoga your career or just looking to expand your knowledge, this yoga teacher training leaves you feeling empowered, comfortable teaching a class, and eager to share all of the amazing things we get to learn..." - Natalia M.
"I needed a little space from my teacher training program before I could reflect and share my feelings and thoughts on the experience. It was such an intense experience (hence being called an INTENSive teacher training program) but such an amazing one. I had the honor of meeting 19 other unique souls going through life transitions and searching to better themselves and the lives of others through yoga. Each one of my peers inspired, surprised, and challenged me every day and through learning about their lives and individual journeys with yoga I learned so much about myself and my own. At the Joschi Yoga Institute, we as students were guided by three very different but all incredibly caring, intelligent, and devoted teachers. The experience would not have been the same had one of my peers or teachers been missing. I went into the program intending to learn more about myself physically, mentally, and emotionally so that I could better guide others to find the same kind of self love and understanding. I was also excited to get into the academic side of yoga, to learn anatomy and sanskrit, philosophy, history, etc. That desire is what lead me to the Joschi Yoga Institute specifically, and I was not disappointed... >Read more testimonials here!

"In short: a life changing, transformational experience with highly experienced, dedicated professionals and a structured environment that developed my capabilities to move, feel and ultimately, teach.
I discovered the Joschi Yoga Institute through research on the Internet, and made my decision to attend the 4-week Intensive Teacher Training after an exhaustive comparison of other programs offered in
and around Manhattan. The Joschi program stood out as the most complete, thoughtful and organized opportunity available, plus the intensive program allowed me to dive deep into the practice and complete the certification in one month. I came into the program with no expectations except to receive a teaching certificate, and even then, I wasn't sure I truly wanted to teach yoga.
The program is fantastic. There is a perfect balance of focusing on the technical elements of the asanas, teaching exercises, learning the historical and spiritual aspects of yoga, and of course, anatomy. I was also pleasantly surprised how much content and group discussion / debate came about from just simple conversations with the other students.
I just graduated the program, and feel that I now have an enlightened perspective on yoga. I feel confident to teach and excited to continue deepening my practice. Joschi's program is not the end of my study of yoga, but just the beginning." Carl L.>Read more testimonials here!
Joschi Yoga Institute's 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training Program gives you all the skills, knowledge, experience and confidence to be a great, creative and compassionate teacher in a small group setting. Our Teacher Training will immerse you in all aspects of yoga and develops skills in the fundamentals and methodology of teaching yoga with an emphasis on vinyasa yoga.
Our progressive, foundation-based approach will cover the fundamental postures and how to sequence the asanas in a fluid manner. It includes the basics of pranayama and meditation and how to incorporate them into your classes. Because of the physical nature of vinyasa, we will discuss anatomy/physiology and how it relates to poses, posture and alignment during class. We'll explore the philosophy and ethics of yoga as well as finding teaching opportunities after graduation and the business side of being a yoga teacher.
