Santodanta Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) Online


Due to Covid we have moved our yoga teacher training online!

Founded in 2015, after receiving a grant from BMe Communities and support from the Campaign for Black Male Achievement (CBMA), our yoga teacher training is one of the premiere African American owned yoga organizations in the country! We train teachers in partnership with Santodanta YTT, a Sunlight & Yoga YTT school; an African American owned and woman owned business. To date, we are serving our 5th cohort of +200 RYT certified instructors.

In 2019, we moved headquarters to the Maryland countryside to provide a more bucolic experience for our trainees. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, we have yet to enjoy the rolling hills and fresh air together. But that will be soon! In the meantime, join us online for a comprehensive and transformative yoga teacher training course!

How it works

  • All classes are taught LIVE through Zoom.

  • We will help you transform a portion of your living place into a mini yoga center for spiritual growth and transformation. This will encourage consistent practice even when your instructors are not around “virtually.”  

  • The online training, is just like the in person training. Please show up 5 to 10 minutes early to have your mind-body and area ready for practice. The program is three day a week. Monday and Wednesday from 5:30pm to 7:30pm and Saturday from 9am to 10am. Homework and study must be complete each week before next week’s practice.

  • Each session is lead by Lead Trainer, Changa Bell. Some guest classes will be lead by former Santodanta students who are now professional +200 RYT yoga instructors.

  • Once the course is completed you will earn an internationally recognized certification that is in compliance with The Yoga Alliance. Your certification is accepted worldwide as the standard 200 required by Registered Yoga Schools (RYS)

The Online Experience

Screen fatigue is a real thing. Covid protocols across the country and around the worlds, chained us to our computer and other technologies as well as made us virtual captives in our own homes. Nevertheless, this is only our perception. Like all Mya it is illusion. Our genuine self remains, unaffected and untouched. The Santodanta training is a great way to re-shape our at home experience. We will support you ability to navigate your inner world and unite the separated bodies of mind, emotion, psychology and physiology.

The pandemic has given us an opportunity to transform, and transmute our personality to be balanced in the face of uncertainty and remarkable change. Yoga science and lifestyle will provide you tools to cultivate awareness and strength.

We will have Guest Presenters and cherished members of the yoga community share knowledge, skills and experience in the industry as well as provide inspirational testimony. Lead trainer, Changa Bell is a Georgetown University, Certified Life Coach. He has integrated some behavior change methods to support current training challenges as well as  future teaching methodologies.
