200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training 


(In-Person & Online)

The Iron Buddha Yoga Teacher Training runs parallel to the mission of the Iron Buddha: to build strength in peace. Our teachers educate students on the importance of building a strong body, mind, and spirit, to create a well-rounded practice on the mat, and off. 


Our curriculum sets practitioners who want to dive deeper into their practice, and those ready and willing to be teachers and coaches, on the path to do so. Yoga is not just the Asana. It is not just a flow. It is a philosophy. A way of life. IB YTT will not only allow students to practice with a greater depth of knowledge, but also prepare students to lead with confidence, directness, and compassion in a way that speaks truly to them. 

Traditional yoga sutras and culture are a large pillar of our training, and sets the foundation for reflection on how the lifestyle and limbs of yoga can be applied to us in the 21st Century. This practice is lifelong. Over these 200 hours, you will learn to teach, and explore how it can support others, yourself, and what it means to you. Who knows, it might change your life. 

Combined with the physical components of our training and our mentioned lifestyle teachings, our students will learn to curate a class that is unique to the person they are, while setting themselves aside to support their students while in leading; create comfort in the room, manage the class, and infuse peaceful strength into their guidance. Logistically, we feel the following objectives speak to the power of the program:

  • Discover the history and roots of yoga

  • Learn how to implement and live a yogic lifestyle off the mat, should you choose; determine what that looks like to you
