500 HR YTT 2020_edited.png

Advanced 300HR Yoga Teacher Training



This upcoming training is firmly rooted in the understanding of yoga as expressed by Sri Krishnamacharya and his son, TKV Desikachar. The program will be highly experiential with hands-on components in all areas of study. The students will have many opportunities to practice the ideas and concepts within their own lives as well as gain experience sharing them with others.

At the heart of this training is the belief that yoga is relationship. Every student will work one-on-one with an assigned mentor who will guide their daily practice and become part of the community of support surrounding the student during this time of deepening practice and investigation of the teachings of yoga.





Program Details

JANUARY 2020 - APRIL 2021 


The highlight feature of our 300HR program is that you're able to complete it both In-Person AND Online, same as our 200HR program!

Our unique Blended Learning Program allows those participating online to also interact one-on-one with our instructors and in-person participants - creating connections far and wide, and a sense of community on this learning journey! Every student will work one-on-one with an assigned mentor who will guide their daily practice and become part of the community of support surrounding the student during this time of deepening practice and investigation of the teachings of yoga.

And since we're a Registered Yoga School, once you graduate, you are able to register as a Yoga Alliance Instructor!


Aside from an Amazing Learning Experience, you'll also benefit from:


  • Blended Learning: Our course allows you to complete this training from anywhere! You can attend in-person, online, or a mix of both! Distance learners can join us in a LIVE virtual classroom through zoom for weekly + weekend classes.

  • Flexible Payment Plans: From receiving an additional discount for paying tuition in-full, to working on a payment plan that works for you (*if you sign up to begin payments before the start of the program!) 

  • Multiple Credit Completion: Every class is recorded to allow everyone who might miss a class the chance to catch up. If you are unable to attend or tune-in to a class online, you are able to watch the class recordings and submit your notes to the instructor to receive credit for those hours.

  • Easy Review and Study: Even if you haven't missed a class, all class recordings are still available for you to review them and study.

  • Multiple options for Student Practicum: Your Practicum hours can be completed:
