Zen Den Yoga School and Retreats facilitates various forms of yoga including Ashtanga-inspired Vinyassa, the true Sivananda, Hatha, Restorative, and other traditions.

The school offers an ongoing 200-hour yoga teacher training program and a 300-hour program for people interested in a 500-hour training. Zen Den Yoga School warmly invites you to come and enjoy a retreat or training with their highly educated and experienced facilitators.

Instructors

Ira Schneider
Ira
Ira started to practise yoga consciously in 2007. He says consciously because, after getting his 200-hour certification, he realized there were many parts of yoga besides the physical practice. These other paths of yoga (pranayama, meditation, and positive thought), he had already been practising from the time he was a little boy. This inward feeling of something larger than himself was always present through his years as an entrepreneur, teacher, consultant, and individual being.
