Enhance your abilities as a yoga teacher

For Yoga teachers who have already completed a 200-hour basic certification program, Integral Yoga offers advanced-level teacher training leading to a 300-hour certification recognized by Yoga Alliance. Our program is designed to give you the flexibility to customize your course of study, while providing a complete and well-rounded education in all aspects of Yoga.

About the 300-Hour Yoga Teacher Certification Program

There are many areas in which you might choose to specialize, including advanced asana practice, meditation and stress management, the philosophy of Yoga, as well as teaching to special populations with particular conditions or concerns.

Students will choose from a selection of core courses and elective courses, applying the hours earned in each training towards a total of 300 hours. There is no specific time restriction within which you must complete all courses, we understand the need to balance work, study, and home life, and hope that our students will find this flexible program well-suited to promoting an easeful journey on the path of teacher training. Upon successful completion of the 300-hour track, students will be eligible to register with Yoga Alliance as a Yoga teacher with the RYT 500 designation. 


Before enrolling in the 300-Hour Program, participants are required to have successfully completed a 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training program registered with Yoga Alliance. The Integral Yoga 200-Hour Hatha Teacher Training fulfills this requirement, as would a 200-Hour certification from another tradition that meets YA standards.
