Basil Yoga, located in the historic Union Hall in North Salem, is offering a nine-month Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) program that begins this Fall. The 200-hour certification program, which is registered with Yoga Alliance, meets weekly on Tuesday evenings beginning in September and selected weekends January through April 2014.

“The Basil Yoga YTT Program was designed for those seeking the certification, skills, and knowledge of the yogic sciences and arts in order to guide others on a path to balanced and whole living,” says studio owner Basil Jones, who has appeared on The Martha Stewart Show and in Stewart’s publications. “It’s a well-rounded training program for personal growth and self-discovery through the in-depth exploration and study of the Vinyasa Yoga tradition.”

Jones says that his program is also for those who want to refresh their knowledge and skills or enrich a past yoga certification. “Learning is ongoing,” he notes. “Through self-study in a yoga practice we cultivate awareness that brings the physical, emotional and energetic experiences of who we are to a place of stability and clarity. Our effort towards steadiness supports our health and well-being as individuals and members of a global community.”

Basil Yoga is located at 2 Keeler Lane, Upper Floor, in North Salem, NY. For more information about Basil Yoga Teacher Training, visit or email [email protected]
