500 Hour RYT
EVOLVE FROM A YOGA INSTRUCTOR TO A YOGA TEACHER
To be a Yoga Teacher is to become an embodiment of yoga knowledge through which you can inspire and transform students, well beyond the skillset of an instructor of yoga. If you have completed a 200-hour training program, we have continuing education opportunities to take your education and teaching practice to the next level! In our 500-hour training modules, you'll learn to develop your own style, master the techniques of skillful, experienced teaching, and further your own practice of yoga with mindfulness.
You must be a current 200-hour Yoga Alliance certified yoga instructor. If your training was not through Yoga for Life, you must submit a syllabus from the training program that certified you. Additionally, you may be asked to interview to ensure eligibility criteria.
The advanced studies coursework is composed of three modules, each of which is 100-hours in duration. Given the significance and depth of the material, there is approximately a six-month time allowed in between each module to absorb and practice.
Each module is priced at $1200. Registration fee is $500 due within seven days of acceptance in the program.
