200HR Program
Essential Yoga Teacher Training is a 200 hour inspirational, educational, and supportive style of hands-on teacher training. Our program offers an extraordinary opportunity for complete immersion into yoga and all its dimensions. Surround yourself with like-minded individuals and follow your dream to become an accomplished yoga teacher. This comprehensive program will provide you with the skill, knowledge and confidence to begin teaching yoga. The course is also appropriate for those who may not be interested in teaching but simply wish to advance their training in the study of Yoga.

​300HR Program
Essential Yoga’s 300 Hour Teacher Training is available to applicants that have completed 200 hours of training from a Yoga Alliance RYS (Registered Yoga School) and are able to, or have registered as an RYT200. The program consists of an additional 300 hours of training beyond this designation and upon completion allows the candidate to register as an RYT 500.  The 300 Hour Teacher Training is on the same schedule as the 200 Hour Training with several distinctions. 300 Hour teacher candidates are expected to play a large role in assisting the 200 Hour candidates during each module by providing instruction and supplemental information that enhances the learning environmental. They are expected to teach public classes at alternately designated times at the Essential Yoga studio and provide a public workshop of their choosing. The 300-hour candidates are also required to provide a thesis paper focusing on a specific aspect or topic of training relative to their personal yogic journey. 

Topic related modules will always be held as workshops on their scheduled dates and may provide Continuing Education Units (CEU’s) as required by the Yoga Alliance for existing teachers. Although, teacher trainees may certainly use all regularly scheduled nine module months to use for their program, the option is available for some to accelerate their training to complete the materials, gain required contact hours with the lead trainer and demonstrate competencies at an accelerated rate, quite possibly finishing within a few months. With this in mind, it is feasible for some to start as late as January or February to complete their training by the end of the academic year in May.
