Harlem Yoga Studio has been dedicated to making Yoga ACCESSIBLE, WELCOMING, and FUN for over a decade, since its founding in 2009.

Here at HYS students can find a class to suit their needs, no matter their level, age, experience, or body type, and connect both through their practice, and through ties to our larger community.

Enrolling in a 200-hour TT is an amazing way to deepen your practice, broaden your knowledge of the 8 limbs of Yoga, learn how to bring the physical and mental benefits of Yoga into your community, and obtain a solid foundation for teaching Yoga asana that is Accessible, Welcoming, and Fun for EVERY body!

In addition to a solid foundation that will allow you to confidently begin your journey teaching both new and more advanced students, the training will give you a unique introduction and opportunity to explore; Trauma-Informed Yoga, which addresses the needs of a variety of body types and abilities, anti-racism and diversity in the yoga classroom, and strategies for building community through Yoga.

Here's what some of our previous Teacher Trainees had to say:

My experience in the HYS TT was beyond what I expected. This training not only helped me learn everything I need to start my path as a yoga teacher, but it also connected me with extraordinary human beings. I felt part of a wonderful community.

—Gaby H. TT 2018

Last fall I googled “yoga training NYC” and Harlem Yoga Studio popped up.  It was meant to be.  I live in the neighborhood and I had taken my son to the toddler and me classes when the studio opened 10 years ago.  I immediately signed up and the training was above and beyond what I expected.  The teachers are aHHHmazing.  I learned about yoga asanas (poses) and philosophy.  In all my years of fitness, I always went to the fast, high-energy classes.  This training taught me that the yoga my body needs was not the yoga I had been chasing.  They have created a training that is a haven and a safe space.  Erica, Amy, and Vijay along with the teachers that are brought in for the specials opened my eyes, mind and heart to so much beyond “fitness”.  Yoga is a powerful tool for connecting people and Harlem Yoga Studio is dedicated to its students and the community.

—Angela Boswell, TT 2018


Yoga Teacher Training at Harlem Yoga Studio was a really unique and wonderful experience! Erica, Amy and Vijay provided so much personalized guidance during our “pandemic training,” and really went out of their way to make sure the flow of the training worked for everyone. Erica, Amy, and Vijay each provide a different lens to yoga which complements each other well and gives students the opportunity to learn varying styles. Upholding the integrity of the ancient practice was clear in the emphasis on Sanskrit and mediation being interwoven throughout the class, and the sutras as pillars of the practice. The social justice and trauma-informed yoga trainings were impactful and an important reason why I chose HYS - they practice what they preach.
Humor, light, dedication, and community are fully present at Harlem Yoga Studio’s YTT. Hope this gives you an idea of how great this YTT is.
