Are you interested in focused, 1:1 RYT 200 teacher training with one of the top Yoga Therapists in the area? 


Niyama Yoga Shala and Yama Therapeutics are proud to offer private yoga teacher training for those interested in RYT 200. These options are for those who are interested in a more intimate teaching environment that also fosters accelerated learning and focuses on the individual needs of the student.

With Nicole Zornitzer
Program Director

Private Yoga Teacher Training Overview

200 hour yoga teacher training

While our traditional teacher training program is nine months long, meeting one weekend per month, this option may not be one that meets everyone’s desired timeframe for studying to become a Therapeutic Yoga Instructor.  Often, we have students who are able to dedicate more time during the work week and are interested in fast tracking their experience with us.  For the past 13 years we have offered individuals the opportunity to study and mentor directly under our Founder, Nicole Zornitzer, E-RYT 2000, Yoga Therapist.


Benefits of private yoga teacher training with Niyama

  • Ability to train in less than nine months (timing is dependent upon the schedule that is agreed upon between Niyama and student).  The average amount of time to expect is between 4-5 months. However, this can change depending upon needs and completion of required work

  • 1:1 Attention to student needs, desire for focused area of practice and ability to work closely with Nicole Zornitzer for optimal training

  • Weekly in person training sessions built around personal needs

  • Studying the material in a condensed timeline enables full absorption into the program with minimal time to get distracted

  • Accountability is up to you (the student), therefore the more motivated you are the easier the process will be
