The Origins of US Yoga Academy Teachings
The curriculum of the courses we teach originates from MISA Romania, created in 1990, right after the fall of the communist regime. Along the years MISA grew up to be the largest yoga school in Europe and turned into a genuine academy of spiritual sciences. The range of classes being taught encompasses a wide variety of subjects, like: Yoga, Tantra, Meditation, Ayurveda, Enneagram, Astrology, Kashmir Shivaism, Tantric Alchemy, and so on.
Nowadays instructors educated at MISA have started similar courses in many locations around the world. All our classes follow the same curriculum and share the same hand-outs.
All teachers that complete our teacher training course are certified as Yoga or/and Tantra Teachers by Atman – The International Federation of Yoga and Meditation. The teachers will also receive a Yoga Alliance Certification at the level of 500 hours, RYT-500. RYT stands for Registered Yoga Teacher. The certification from ATMAN will allow you to possibly teach yoga anywhere in the world, at any Atman school.
Qualification for the Teacher Training Program
The admittance into the teacher training program is based on internal qualification procedures. You need to attend the courses for at least 2 years before being allowed to apply for the teacher training program. Talk to your local Yoga/Tantra instructor for guidance in applying for this program.
Location and Duration
- The Yoga Teacher Training Course for US is organized in Las Vegas, NV. All participants from US will have to come to Las Vegas for this special training. The teacher training is 2 years long, and the meetings are every 2 months and cover a full weekend. Travel and lodging are at student’s expense.
- The Tantra Teacher Training Course takes place in Denmark. The tantra teacher training is 2 years long, including 3 meetings of 10 days each. Travel and lodging are at student’s expense. The Danish school provides lodging and food at very reasonable prices.
In order to graduate, the participants need to pass two tests (one after 1 year in the program and one at the end). These tests include both theory and practical elements. An individual project is also part of the final test. Also the participants need to still be attending the regular Yoga/Tantra classes. The teacher training is not a replacement for the main courses.
The teacher training in our school is free of charge. Education materials are also provided free of charge. A deposit is required at the beginning of the course, which will be fully refunded upon the completion of the program. In the situation when a student drops out of the teacher training, he/she will lose the full deposit.
