NOTE to students interested in YOGA TEACHER TRAINING: YOU CAN START OUR PROGRAM AT ANY TIME! We have a unique ongoing drop-in format that repeats. Visit www.YogaTeacher.org.

We are the longest running Yoga School and Teacher Training in Ohio, We  been teaching Yoga at this location since 1978 and have been training Yoga Teachers since 1982. In 2005, we became a "Registered Yoga School" (RYS) at the 200 hour level.

In addition to our 200 hour certification, we also offer a 500 hour level certification (not YA approved), a 1000 hour Yoga Mentorship program, and specialty certifications including teaching Meditation,  Yoga Nidra. You can read about our Yoga Teacher Training and Certification Program at www.YogaTeacher.org and contact us at info@AUM.org.
Information about our public classes can be found at www.AUM.org.  

We practice and teach the classical eight-limbed Aṣṭāṅga Yoga (Raja Yoga) as codified by Patañjali in the Yoga Sutras
► Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced Hatha Yoga
► Meditation, Pranayama, Yoga Nidra, and other aspects of Aṣṭāṅga and Yoga Philosophy
► Prenatal Yoga
► Private classes and corporate Yoga
► Stress management and relaxation skills
► Yoga Teacher Training and Certification. We have been training Yoga & meditation teachers longer than any school we know of in Ohio, and have trained many of the area's most experienced teachers.

Please note that we trach traditional Aṣṭāṅga Yoga do NOT teach Ashtanga Yoga as taught by K. Pattabhi Jois. Some of our public classes and workshops may be taught in that tradition, depending on our current teaching staff, but it is not part of our Yoga Teacher Training and Certification Program..

    This teacher training really gave me a well rounded base for my practice from the physical asanas to the spiritual background. This training really helped me strengthen my practice. I learned so much from Larry and Matt and appreciate the flexibility of Sunday morning classes so I could keep my day job while expanding my yoga practice. I highly recommend this teacher training. I love them and appreciate everything I learned!

    This school is wonderful, and the teachers are very knowledgable, fun, and just overall awesome. When I was sitting in class, I often had the feeling that there was absolutely nowhere else in the world that I wanted to be, than right there in the Yoga Teacher Training. Thank you for a great journey over the past two years.

    I enjoyed the 2 year option from SLS because I felt that I was able to incorporate the teachings into my everyday life. I didn't feel rushed for a deadline since I was able to complete the program at my own pace and still have my regular day-to-day life. It also helped that the teachers related topics to topics that were already covered so that I could understand the connections. I think it was beneficial to receive a traditional teaching style, and experiential teaching style and also be encouraged to seek out other classes and workshops so I could get the most well-rounded experience possible, instead of just learning from one teacher/way of teaching.

    I am very glad that I completed my yoga teacher training at Spiritual Life Society and Yoga Center of Hudson. Larry and Matt are two of the most experienced teachers in North East Ohio. I appreciate both the depth of their teaching and their practical experience.

    I recommend this program to anyone interested in completing a yoga teacher training program. Larry and Matt are incredible instructors and have a deep understanding and passion for yoga. My favorite part about the program was the length it took to complete. It took me a little over two years to graduate the program, and that time allowed me to generate a deeper understanding of myself and the practice. I loved the time I spent at Spiritual Life Society, it has changed my life!
