200 Hour YTT in Pittsboro, NC: March 30 – December 15


2019 Schedule



At HoYS we focus on teaching traditional yoga and correcting the incomplete image of yoga in the west. More often than not, yoga is presented as merely exercise, and in actuality it’s so much more than just the physical poses. It’s a variety of pathways that allow for self-realization, and when we find ourself on a path that’s compatible with our overall disposition we glean the joy of doing our own dharma, and living our truest life.

We do our best to offer ancient, time-tested teachings from India that are illuminated in a variety of Sanskrit texts and avoid hodge-podged new age constructions.

The primary focus of our teaching is:

Bhakti Yoga – The yoga of love and devotion. Music, Harmonium, and the Bhakti texts like Bhagavad Gita, Srimad Bhagavatam, and Ramayana.

Hatha Yoga – Body and breath yoga with an emphasis on balancing and purifying the subtle energy body. The primary text we use is Hatha Yoga Pradipika.

Jnana Yoga – The yoga of wisdom as prescribed in the Vedas and the Upanishads. This is also known as Vedanta.

Jyotish – Vedic Astrology, a Vedanga, or limb of the Vedas. Jyotish is the Science of Light, the eyes of the Vedas.

Karma Yoga – The yoga of selfless service.

Nada Yoga – The yoga of sound and vibration. Classical Indian Music is profoundly healing on an emotional and physical level.

Raja Yoga – The yoga of meditation and understanding the inner workings of the mind as prescribed by Patanjali in his Yoga Sutras.

Sanskrit – Correct pronunciation creates healing vibrations. Incorrect pronunciation can sometimes backfire and create subtle discomforts in the body and mind.
