The sanskrit word Jaya means "victory to" or "in celebration of." Jaya Yoga was created in celebration of Yoga in all ways. Teacher Training at Flow Yoga delves you deep into the true heart of yoga. physically, you will get the best possible instruction in pose anatomy and alignment so that you can truly understand "the reasons, not just the rules." Personally, Yoga is about connection, union, life, and love. You will come to know yourself as that during these trainings.
No matter where your yogic path has brought you so far, arriving here, is where you are meant to be. Jaya Yoga Teacher Training celebrates Yoga like no other training program we know of. More than just learning asana and teaching techniques, you will discover true Yoga, the essence of how you are. You will train, personally, with teachers devoted to you and your Yogic discovery. You will become immersed in Yoga with the guidance of your teachers throughout the program. This is how Yoga was traditionally taught.
"Our inspiration is to share Yoga in ways that are meaningful to you energetically and spiritually. Jaya Yoga is also uniquely grounded in preventing Yoga injuries so that you can continue your practice for the rest of your life ~ we approach Yoga not from what's trendy, but from what's sacred, sustainable, and revolutionary." ~ Pushti (Stephanie Adams)
What to Look for in a Yoga Teacher Training Program
As you compare different programs and schools, feel free to ask lots of questions about the program and the experience of the Trainers. Not only how long have they been practicing or teaching Yoga, but how long have they been training teachers?
Are the teachers ERYT 500 Level with Yoga Alliance (highest level)?
Have they been trained in more than one style of asana?
How many students will be allowed into the program?
Up to this point, you may have been to different classes, teachers, workshops, retreats, trainings, etc. In Jaya we invite you to become immersed with two complimentary and diverse teachers. Stephanie (Pushti) and Adi are developed to you and your deeper yogic experience during and even after our training time together. Traditionally, this is how Yoga was passed down through the ages. While it can be fun and fashionable and even feel safe to go from conference to conference to training to workshop to class, this can also be a way to avoid intimacy, vulnerability, or to truly be seen. Without a long-term teacher, no one to consistently see your progression and practice in your Yoga training, you may feel something missing in the dedication and devotion you experience on your path.
Is Jaya Yoga Right for You?
Jaya Yoga will challenge your body and mind, and open your heart, if you let it. We will ask a lot from you, and you will get back, what you give. Once you commit to this program, your practice, and your overall well-being…you "catch" Yoga, you become Yoga. You relax into life with the most vital energy you've ever known. We offer a 3-Day Foundations Training so that you can meet your potential teachers and get a deep sense and feeling for what this style/approach is founded upon. If your heart is inspired toward the Jaya Yoga path, you can choose to enter either at the 200-hour or 500-hour level (if you already have your RYT 200).
Our class size is limited to 24 students. It is of the utmost importance to us that we have enough people to generate energy and support, but not so many that we are limited in our personal connection to each student.
Stephanie and Adi have been taught by master teachers in the U.S. and India and have taken a variety of trainings around the world to ensure that we are providing classes to inspire the mind, awaken the spirit, and bring vital energy into the body. There are many newer teachers who put together teacher trainings and many of them have only been trained in one style of asana. Our teacher trainers have been trained in many forms of vinyasa/astanga/power, bihar, kriya/kundalini, yin, Iyengar, partner/acro, Pranava, and therapeutic/viniyoga. Stephanie has been practicing asana regularly since 1994 (over 23 years), and training Yoga teachers and developing curriculum for Yoga Alliance-approved training programs nearly full-time since 2000 (over 17 years). Adi has been teaching the heart of Yoga since he first had the highest samadhi experience in 2003. We have 31 combined years of full-time teaching.
We understand that your life is busy and there are often many other commitments you need to consider before diving into a 200 hour training program. After years of

Many yoga students simply want to learn more about their personal yoga practice and have no plans to teach. In this instance students may register for the above workshops as a standalone, without committing to the full teacher training program. These workshops also can be taken individually for continuing education for an RYT, ACE, or other certification program.
