300 / 500 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Updates
We’ve made some changes to our 300 / 500 Hour Yoga Teacher Training program:
We have updated the price to $250 per module.
>> this is a discount of $45 for every module!
>> if you pay as you go, this equals a $810 price cut for the full program
We are offering an additional discount if you pay in full upfront.*
>> $4,050 for the program upfront
>> this is an additional $450 discount!
* If you’ve already paid for modules and want to change to paying in full, email us and we will update your record.
Total Time Update
We are changing to a 2 year program.** Every module will be offered once every two years. If you need to miss a few modules due to scheduling challenges, that’s no problem: we make room for that in the program structure.
You have the option to make up 3 missed modules. This new structure is meant to promote accountability & your success in the program.
** if you’ve already taken a module, it still counts!
We recognize that we are still living in the era of COVID, which can further complicate things when choosing to commit to a program of this nature. That is why we are giving you the option to take up to 3 modules virtually:

Why are we making these changes?
1. The shorter time frame encourages accountability and commitment to the program. Doing research on other programs, we found that a 1- to 2-year timeframe is pretty standard.
2. The significant reduction in price makes this an even better value, especially compared to other programs.
3. The structure is closer to a 200 RYT program, which makes more sense in terms of content retention and absorption.
4. Our teacher-to-student ratio allows for more interaction and communication with both the instructors and fellow students.
More Information & Details
Yoga Alliance, which is the governing body for Yoga teaching qualifications in the US, has strict standards for all Yoga Teaching Training programs. 300 / 500 hour programs require a significant amount of supervision and contact from lead teachers, so there is consistency in terms of content and lecture. We are remaining compliant with these standards and guidelines as they change over time.
Stay tuned for 2022 module dates. You don’t have to enroll in the program in order to take advantage of these modules and price changes: take any modules you like a la carte, at any time that works for your schedule.
