How long is the training program?


Our 300hr Advanced Teacher Training begins March 8, 2018 and will run for 10 months. We offer the option to complete this training in the span of one year, or over a period of three years.

See the exact dates below.

This training begins with a 5-day immersion and continues with one weekend immersion every month; there are two weekend immersions scheduled in July. This training is about growing your existing yoga knowledge and practice. We will provide the space and opportunity for teachers and students to deepen their study and practice while being able to immediately use the skills we are sharing. Our curriculum will dive into deeper understanding of yoga, anatomy, and philosophy as well as practical methods to apply this knowledge directly to life and teaching.
