300 HOUR Education prograM | OVERVIEW

Industry standard dictates that you can teach a Yoga class after 200 hours.  However, like any great career or art form, real understanding comes through both learned knowledge and real experience. After your first 200 hours, you have laid an excellent foundation but to excel as a teacher, continuing education is necessary. In this 300 hour program, we provide Yoga teachers with effective tools to teach excellent Yoga classes. Simultaneously, we engage trainees in practicum and ask each student to display their skills. Our faculty works one on one with each participant, offering individualized growth plans and helping them towards success. This training is for any Yoga teacher who wants to improve their skills in teaching Yoga. Read below for schedule of hours and fees.
