How long is the training program?

Our next teacher training will begin February 16th 2018. See below for the exact dates of our training weekends!

This 200hr training will be one immersion weekend a month and take 8 months to complete. This training is about a lifestyle. It must work for your life, and is a choice you make for life. The overwhelming feedback of our previous trainings is that the shorter training length made it difficult for those with families and careers to balance. Our training is dedicated to creating an environment and schedule that allows you to absorb the wealth of information and integrate that knowledge into your practice. You will be exposed to a myriad of instructors who are experts in their field!

See dates below

What will the weekends look like?

Our immersion weekends begin on a Friday evening from 6:00pm - 9:00pm, then a full day on Saturday 8:30am - 6:30pm, and Sunday 8:30am - 5:30pm. You will then have one additional weeknight each month on the Thursday following your training weekend from 6:00pm - 9:00pm. You will uncover layers of history, meditation, pranayama breath practice, the science of Ayurveda, the language of sanskrit, and the art of meditation. You will explore anatomy, body image, and multiple styles of yoga including pre-natal, chair yoga, power, hot yoga, bikram, gentle, restorative, yin, and a particular focus on vinyasa flow. Every weekend is different and designed to open an new aspect of your mind.

How much does the program cost?

The total cost of the program is $3,200. If you sign up before January 5th 2018 you get $200 off, for a total of $3,000. We ask for a non-refundable deposit of $300 to reserve your spot, which is then applied to your total cost. We request your total cost be paid up front but if you need a payment plan let us know, monthly payments are available. There is a 4% charge for credit card payments.

Tuition includes UNLIMITED yoga at Bella Prana Studio during your training!

What if I need to miss anything?

We understand that life happens. Though we ask that every student plan to be present for all of the hours listed, you will have the opportunity to make up some hours during your training. Certain topics may have to be made up by attending a future training.

If you must miss we ask that you do NOT miss more than 15 hours of training at a maximum.

If you have to schedule a private session with an instructor to make up a lecture topic it will be at your OWN cost. Some topics can be made up without a private session but we cannot guarantee this depending on what you miss, so please be prepared for the possibility of returning to a future training. If you must come to a future training that will be at no additional cost to you.

Is the Training Yoga Alliance Certified?

Yes! We are a Yoga Alliance approved 200hr training program. During this training you will learn how to register yourself as a Yoga Alliance certified instructor.
