Our advanced level teacher training will give you so many tools to add to your teaching repertoire. This 300 hour program includes several different mini certifications to help you become a teacher who has a vast array of knowledge, skills and hands-on experience that translates to more effective classes, workshops and private lessons, helping you to make an even bigger impact in your clients and students lives. Our program meets one weekend per month from January 2021 – April 2022 making it accessible for those who work standard business hours, have families and various other commitments to juggle. We have full functionality for taking any section of this program online in the event that businesses are still impacted by COVID-19.
In our 300 hour program you’ll get 270 contact hours (the minimum required by Yoga Alliance to be considered a Yoga Alliance approved yoga school) and 30+ hours of homework.
