RYT200 teacher training
We offer our RYT200 Yoga Teacher Training program in a series of modules, each Core Module consisting of 18 contact hours taught over a period of 2 days. Our program includes all materials for the Core RYT200 training. There is nothing to buy, no additional workshops, classes, or costs. The price you pay is all-inclusive for the entire training and includes all manuals and materials necessary for the core modules.
We believe you learn to teach yoga by teaching yoga. Practicing yoga teaches you how to practice yoga, teaching yoga teaches you how to teach yoga. With this in mind, you will have the opportunity to lead a yoga class to fellow trainees each weekend of training. You will receive with feedback from the Master Trainer and develop your skills as a Yoga Instructor.
Our various formats enable you to choose a training program most convenient to your schedule and to meet your specific goals.
