500 Hour

The 500 hour certification is currently the highest level of education recognized by the Yoga Alliance. This program will deepen your teaching skills and/or your personal practice. You must be a certified 200 hour teacher in order to be considered for admission. The program is an additional 300 hours for the total of 500.

Clarification: The 100 hours of teaching required by the Yoga Alliance for your 500 hour RYT is not a prerequisite for joining the 500 hour program. You will begin accumulating those hours with every class you teach upon completion of your 200 hour RYT.

Sacred Rivers' 'Yoga for Every Body' Yoga Alliance 200 & 500 hour registered schools have been graduating students since 2004.  Please read what our graduates have to say here

"Our mission is to create a sacred space...a sanctuary for the soul to recognize our oneness and to support each other on our personal paths of self-discovery and growth...learning to listen to inner wisdom...and to lighten up."
