Welcome to the Supersoul 200 Hour Yoga Alliance Certified Teacher Training. Both trainings are powerfully trans-formative courses led by the well-known international & master teacher Raghunath. Raghunath also brings in expert guest presenters who assist him in creating this well rounded and authentic yoga teacher training.

The Supersoul Yoga 200 Hour Yoga Alliance Certified Teacher Training is a foundational yet deep course designed for aspiring yoga teachers; as well as committed practitioners who feel called to further explore and experience the profound depth of the yoga system and its practical application in modern, daily life.  A large percentage of Raghunath students have gone on to be successful studio owners and teachers in their own communities either locally, nationally or internationally.

Drawing from the paradigm of Bhakti Yoga, students will learn to access their 'signature offering to the world' as a means of healing and awakening personal transformation, as well as catalyzing change for their students.

Raghunath is considered a teacher’s teacher and travels all over the world leading or assisting trainings. He has been leading his own teacher trainings since 2006 in Los Angeles and New York. In his twenties, he spent 6 years as a brahmachari monk living in ashrams both in India and the America while traveling the sub-continent of India and entire United States.

BOBBIE MARCHAND
Body Mechanics

Pursuing her love of dance, Bobbie, a graduate of Canada’s National Ballet School moved from her native Toronto to NY in 2005. Though the equation of Dancer to Yoga Teacher is a common one; it was a life-altering illness that tuned her in to the power of a daily, dedicated Yoga practice. Pretty soon, the practice became a way of life, with lessons learned on the mat melding with every day relationships and events.

A sweet, soulful Teacher, Bobbie encourages students to discover "that which does not change"; a deep connection to our spirit that lies beneath external conditioning and habitual patterns.

Her classes?....well, it depends what you're coming for....Vinyasa classes are creative, challenging and fun. Drawing on her dance background, the sequencing is expressive and fluid while encouraging alignment (and a healthy use of props!) Bobbie’s yin/stretch/restorative classes are an invitation to pause, yield to the sense of support, turn inward and take the practice to a quiet, nourishing place; away from the external stress of our busy lives.

Endless gratitude to Teachers: Diana Lockett, Amanda Harding and Raghunath for their encouragement, support and loving guidance on this incredible path.
