ZACI (Zion Academy of Certified Instruction) is a Registered Yoga School (RYS) with the Yoga Alliance, which designates this teacher training program as one which follows the Yoga Alliance’s standards. The ZACI 200 hour teacher-training program is for anyone who has the desire to deepen his or her personal practice and understanding of the philosophy of yoga. Yoga unlocks the power, intelligence, potential, and beauty that lies within each of us. It creates a path to self-discovery, self-realization, and self-mastery. Practicing the eight-limb path of yoga promotes a stillness of mind, increased mental clarity, focus, creativity, and awareness while providing a physical and emotional release from the daily stress and pressure of a fast-paced, instant, indulgent, and demanding lifestyle. Areas emphasized in this training course: ​The Eight Limbs of Yoga ​Yama: Universal morality and social ethics to live in harmony with others Niyama: Personal ethics to live in harmony with oneself Asana: Postures to build strength, balance and flexibility so energy can flow freely Pranayama: Breath control to cleanse and strengthen the nervous system and increase vital energy Pratyahara: Introspection and the withdrawal of external stimulation Dharana: Concentration and focus Dhyana: Meditation Samadhi: Oneness The biomechanics involved in postural alignment and making adjustments. Anatomical and physiological understanding of the instruction of yoga and the development of movement skills. ​Techniques used to recognize and correct common misalignments of yoga asanas. Effective methods for teaching principles of alignment of the yoga asanas. The art of teaching and sequencing the asanas. The development, implementation, evaluation, and revision of lesson plans and instructional methods for teaching yoga. Sanskrit and the cultural/history and the spiritual traditions of yoga philosophy and practice. ​Ethics for yoga teachers. Principles of anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology in relationship to the asanas. Energetic anatomy - Chakras, Nadis, Koshas, Vayus, Kriyas, and Mudras. The doshas and ayurveda basics. Pranayama and meditative techniques. ​

    I absolutely loved my yoga teacher training at ZACI. I have been practicing yoga regularly for 9 years and then decided to do the teacher training. I felt like my training was phenomenal! I could not have asked for a better experience.
