3-week Summer Immersion 200 Hour Teacher Training

3-Week Summer Immersion Program

Yoga Alliance-Certified 200-Hour
Yoga Teacher Training & Advanced Yoga Studies


Green Lotus' three-week 240-hour Summer Immersion program provides transforming  opportunities for individuals to deepen their personal understanding and knowledge of yoga alongside those who are committed to teaching and leadership journeys. Together we create a dynamic, supportive community in which hard work, commitment, focus, and practice yield dramatic results physically, mentally, and emotionally.  Students completing the training will have earned credentials that meet and exceed the standards of both Yoga Alliance and NETA so that they may become certified with those organizations.


This course has been adapted from our successful nine-month program to accommodate people whose schedules demand immediate immersion and then quick re-entry, such as college students on summer break, parents who can find help with children only in finite, limited time blocks, employees who are able to use vacation days for bursts of time, and those individuals who understand that they learn most effectively by plunging themselves into a subject.

Over the course of three intensive weeks-one each in June, July and August, Monday through Saturday-students will enter the fluid universe of yoga and will emerge ready to teach or to practice with more confidence and understanding.  Each day's training will be steeped in learning asana (poses) around which will be wrapped the foundational aspects of the yoga tradition:  philosophy, breath work, anatomy, meditation, the roles and boundaries of teachers and students, the energy (subtle body), and more.  Out-of-studio hours required include practicing twice a week, reading, written homework assignments, and teacher observations of up to an additional 50 hours over the course of the summer.

Dive into Green Lotus' Summer Immersion Program.  Immerse yourself in the stream and flow of yoga.  Emerge stronger, healthier, and ready. 


I truly believe Green Lotus's training changed the course of my life. I am so grateful for the people I met at Green Lotus during the training, the training itself, and the solid knowledge of yoga I now have. You are wonderful, amazing people - thank you!
