Training students to be teachers and teachers to be students
SCHYS Training Programs
Surya Chandra Healing Yoga School offers comprehensive training programs in the Krishnamacharya/TKV Desikachar lineage.
Yoga is an ongoing and unfolding experience in self-growth. Each SCHYS teacher training program introduces students to the intellectual aspects of yoga and asks them to experience it for themselves. These teachings go deeper, opening the heart, and serving as the gateway to the journey within.
Those looking to advance their yoga practice or learn more about the philosophy of yoga start with the Programs Registered with the Yoga Alliance, the 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training Program and the 300-Hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training Program. These programs allow teachers to become students again and challenges their perceptions of what yoga is. Through these programs, students come to realize that yoga is a deeply intimate event for the body-mind-spirit, and that the beauty of it rests in how differently it is expressed from person-to-person.
SCHYS Yoga Therapy Certificate Program is an accredited program with the International Association of Yoga Therapists. This program is for teachers who are interested in applying the principles of yoga as taught by Krishnamacharya and his son TKV Desikachar for the purpose of helping individuals heal. Students learn the tools of yoga therapy and how to apply them not only to structural issues, but to more complex body-mind-spirit imbalances.

Each program also has other requirements such as online classes, practicum requirements, reading and other assignments. Please see each individual program for details. All programs are set up on a web-based platform, therefore students are expected to have basic computer skills with the ability to access materials and take tests online.
