We offer the highest level of education surpassing the basic requirements of the American Yoga Alliance and are always up to date with any new regulations or alliances that will help you put your best foot forward as a graduate.
***We have worked with Yoga Alliance to secure a safe new pathway for you to graduate as a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-200) online and in-person during the COVID-19 period. We have reconfigured our 200hr program so you can now complete your yoga teacher training in a blended format, consisting of a mix of in-person and virtual sessions. If there are any unexpected studio closures during the training due to COVID-19, we will automatically shift the in-person weekends to virtual weekends until it is safe to meet in person again. If you have any concerns about the in-person weekends, you can also choose to join the in-person weekends virtually, from the comfort of your own home – and still qualify to teach worldwide with Yoga Alliance credentials.
