Therapeutic Yoga Teacher Training Program

Niyama Yoga along with Yama Therapeutics offers a comprehensive Therapeutic Yoga Teacher Training Program.  This is an exciting time for Therapeutic Yoga, as the International Association of Yoga Therapists has begun credentialing Yoga Therapists and accrediting Yoga Therapy Programs.  As one of the first certified Yoga Therapists (C-IAYT) and Department Chair of Yoga Therapy & Ayurveda at Maryland University of Integrative Health, Diane Finlayson is the leader of our program along with Nicole Zornitzer, Founder Niyama Yoga & Wellness Studio.  Nicole is an E-RYT 1000, Integrative Yoga Therapist and received both her 200 and 300 RYT under Yama Therapeutics.  Nicole is also a graduate of Maryland University of Integrative Health, receiving her certification in Ayurvedic as a Certified Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consultant (CALC).

​Niyama Yoga has also decided to partner with Amy Matthews and Leslie Kaminoff, world renowned yoga educators and best-selling authors of Yoga Anatomy.  Matthews and Kaminoff will be leading the anatomy portion of the training.  You will receive over 30 hours of anatomy training, in accordance with the Yoga Alliance with them both as well as Niyama Yoga.

All of our teacher trainers are in the top of their fields in yoga therapy, anatomy, yoga philosophy and Ayurveda with a combined knowledge base ranging 50 years.  This training program began in 2000 and for the last 20 years we have prepared future yoga instructors for a meaningful and prosperous journey into the world of wellness.

Each trainee receives a mentor that is also a graduate of Niyama Yoga & Yama Therapeutics lineage.  This mentor will guide you through the program and assist in your education and possible needs during the program.

Our program is a 9 Month Program that is taught 1 weekend per month over the course of the training.  Between each in person training that runs Friday evening through Sunday evening you will be required to complete homework that ranges from reading, to book reports, to internships, to in depth study of yoga philosophy and history.  This program is accessible to the working individual, as most of our graduates were working full time during the duration of the program. 

Niyama Yoga & Wellness Studio believes that it is vital for the proper time and education be spent to prepare any future Therapeutic Yoga Instructor to graduate and become a successful professional in this field.  We have created a community of Therapeutic Yoga Instructors who consider Niyama their home base for resources and knowledge throughout their career.  We assist in job placement and preparing everyone for this very special profession.
