The 500 hour certification is currently the highest level of education recongnized 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.
"Our mission is to create a sacred space...a sancutalry 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."
