Yoga Farm Ithaca is a nonprofit center for education, yoga and retreat on 65 beautiful acres of woods, waterfalls, and meadows just outside of Ithaca, NY.

We offer
 incredible online yoga teacher trainings to an amazing community of students and teachers all over the world.

We've been called
"The Most In-Person Online Yoga Teacher Training in the world", by our graduates.

Our original 200 hour YTT is called the 'Radiant Warrior Online Yoga Teacher Training'. It teaches Hatha yoga, vinyasa yoga, mindfulness, meditation and inquiry. More than 1000 have graduated from this program and our next start is summer, 2022 (self-paced with live office hours and live yoga all week long), followed by September, 2022 which is our 12-week live-taught (still 100% online, with live sessions + replays just for this group)

We've since added the '200 hour Kundalini Warrior Online Yoga Teacher Training', which is a modern, feminine form of Kundalini yoga. Our educators have been inspired by ancient teachings of Kundalini and have modernized the technology for the modern householder.

We also have two 300 hour YTT's.

In September, 2022, we start the 'Spiritual Warrior Advanced Yoga Teacher Training'. In it, we teach kundalini yoga (a modern, trauma informed method drawn from ancient traditions), the science of Ayurveda, Lunar Wisdom and the Enneagram.

In February, 2023 we start the 'Luminous Warrior 300 hour Advanced YTT'.  
Luminous Yoga is a contemporary trauma-informed yoga drawn from time-tested practices of Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga, QiGong & Kundalini Practices, Breathwork & Instinctive Meditation. 

Luminous Yoga is an open and flexible yoga framework that is fully adaptable and expandable. There is great freedom and flexibility in the yoga you will be learning, as it has a blend of both feminine and masculine teaching styles.

Our yoga teacher trainings are live taught, with replays available for everything, by a team of 15 skilled educators, yoga teachers and assistants. Our curriculum is broad, unique, and truly incredible. We encourage you to browse the reviews here at YA to hear from our grads...

We also offer live online CEU's each month, in topics like yin yoga, restorative yoga, chair yoga, qigong and more....

This well-rounded curriculum equips our students and clients with the ability to sustain vibrant, intentional and deeply connected living.

This brings the individual into balance in the body, mind and soul and refreshes one's connection and enthusiasm for one's Self, their relationships and meaningful work.

While Yoga Farm Ithaca offers many yoga classes the overall emphasis is on teaching skills, tools and techniques for body and mind so that students are able to bring their very best self home to their work, relationships, and service work.

In this way, Yoga Farm Ithaca is contributing every single day to improving the health and wellness of families and communities and workplaces in our society.

I highly recommend Yoga Farm Ithaca to anyone interested in a yoga teacher training, they encourage individuality and authenticity, and you can fit the program into your schedule as it fits you best. It was a great investment and I wouldn't have it any other way. Full Review
