200 hr Thursday Track Teacher Training

200 hr Thursday Track Teacher Training

What are the benefits of the Thursday Track?

The long format weeknight track is geared to those who have a busy schedule with full-time jobs, children, social engagements, etc. It also allows for the slow absorption of knowledge; one has the luxury of time to savor all the new information (and there is A LOT of information.)

What are the benefits of taking a Teacher Training?

At the end of the Teacher Training, you will be recognized as a 200 hour Yoga Alliance certified yoga teacher. You can begin teaching public or private classes. Even if you don’t want to teach yoga, you will deepen your yoga practice and get a greater understanding of what the science and art of yoga is. Teacher training is a deeply satisfying experience; you grow and you learn a lot about YOURSELF. It is a gift that you not only give to yourself but also share with other people. The study of yoga is a lifelong journey; it doesn’t expire.

Program attendance policy

Under the guidelines of our governing board, The Yoga Alliance, students in a 200-hour training may miss up to 20 hours without it affecting his or her completion certificate. That ends up being 5 Thursdays or about one of our weekend intensives. When you miss a class, you will be required to get the notes from a buddy (or watch the recording if available) and submit a written summary of the information missed.
