How it Works
Your journey toward the 500 Hour Integrated Yoga Teacher Training certification begins with the 200 Hour Foundations Yoga Teacher Training, followed by the 300 Hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training.
The 200 Hour Foundations Yoga Teacher Training can be taken as a Year Long program which meets over 10 weekends between February and June, or it can be taken as a Summer Intensive. (see schedule here)
The 300 Hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training builds on the learning you received in your first year and goes further into the areas of philosophy, anatomy, subtle anatomy, meditation, conscious communication, and personal inquiry. You will also dive deeper into what your personal gifts are as a teacher, and how to refine your craft.
Each training will include expanded explorations of philosophy, discussion, asana theory and practice, group exercises, pranayama and meditation. There will be take-home inquiries and assignments with each intensive and weekend workshop.
