School of Yoga

Study Yoga at The Source

At Mount Madonna School of Yoga, we have been training yoga teachers for over 40 years. Our signature 200 and 300 hour trainings are approved by the national yoga registry, the Yoga Alliance, and are led by an extensive faculty; many of whom have been practicing, studying, and teaching yoga at Mount Madonna in California for over 40 years. Our Ayurvedic Yoga Therapy program is certified by the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT) and recognized by the National Ayurvedic Medical Association (NAMA).

Join an ancient lineage and wisdom tradition which covers a broad range of yoga theory, philosophy, and practice, with particular emphasis on the traditional eight limbed (Ashtanga) yoga system as described in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras.
