Arcana School of Yoga is a Yoga Alliance Registered 200 hour and 300 hour yoga school. We also offer continuing education courses. We pride ourselves in hosting 6+ yoga teacher trainings and training over 70 yoga instructors in southern Maine.

Our current offerings are blended between in person meetups in small groups indoors at 81 Market street in the Old Port, the heart of Portland, Maine, outdoors at Lincoln Park and on zoom.
Arcana’s 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training curriculum is a deep journey into the roots of yoga, true self, and community. We study ancient yoga philosophy, Indian history, the energetic body including the chakras and nadis, foundational Ayurveda, meditation, Sanskrit, relaxation techniques, dynamic anatomy, ethics, and yoga’s relationship with social justice. We’ve recently expanded our segments on anatomy and social justice, decolonization and history to be even more thorough.
We also offer advanced 300 hour yoga teacher trainings that include Yoga Nidra and Yin Yoga certifications, advanced Anatomy, Tantric philosophy and more.
