Bala Yoga is delighted to offer a 200-hour yoga teacher training program led by master teacher Les Leventhal. This program is a great way to develop the skills to teach yoga or to take your personal practice to a deeper level. Les’ program meets Yoga Alliance requirements for 200-hour teacher training programs, and covers anatomy, asana, alignment, pranayama, philosophy, and sequencing. You will also assist and observe experienced teachers and learn how to observe, assess, and adjust students safely in asana poses.
Studying yoga at a deep and personal level requires a supportive and like-minded community (satsang). In our program you will study alongside other students, where you’ll share your experiences and findings in an intimate and encouraging environment. You will also develop the knowledge and skills to supercharge your own personal practice (sadhana), which will serve you for your entire life.
This training will be led by Les Leventhal, a highly experienced and much-loved teacher. Les has completed extensive training with Ana Forrest and also trains with Max Strom, Tias Little, and Seane Corn. Les teaches classes, workshops, and teacher trainings worldwide, and will provide you with all the tools you need to teach safe and effectively-sequenced classes to everyone from beginners to seasoned practitioners. This training will give you a solid grounding in philosophy, anatomy, wisdom, prenatal classes, injuries, nutrition, safe hands-on adjustments, ethics, business, and chanting. It will also help you to cultivate the courage and truth you will need to deepen your personal practice and to find your own voice as a teacher.
