Advanced Yoga Teacher Training
300-500-1100-hour Certification Levels
Centered Yoga is uniquely experienced in advanced training, continually offering value courses since 2004 in pranayama, anatomy and physiology, philosophy, science in yoga, and asana plus vinyasa. The 300-hour course is divided into two-week, 100-hour modules, that focus on a specific area of study related to the yoga practices. Each 100-hour module that counts as on-going education in advanced teaching and the Yoga Alliance and Centered Yoga programs.
Though the courses have practical value (i.e., increasing one’s teaching qualification), their real purpose is to bring the student deeper in their understanding of yoga through direct personal experience and practical knowledge. As such, these programs are open to all interested and sincere students, whether they are teaching or not.
The morning asana practice is included in all courses. Pranayama will be introduced to new students while returning students will continue to build on their personal practice. The point is to focus on practices and deliver new knowledge in anatomy and physiology, philosophy, and other related areas.
All Advanced Yoga Teacher Training 100-hour modules are fully inclusive of the training program, both practice sessions and lectures. We provide a setting to support your body and mind at the optimal level so the time invested in your training is most beneficial.
These courses are open to all sincere students. Those who are not concerned about receiving teacher credit hours may simply book through our reservations system.
If, however, you are already a teacher with an RYT Yoga Alliance 200-hour certification (from Centered Yoga or another registered training center) and you would like to raise your qualification to the next level (RYT-500) then please take note:
How It Works
What is Required?
Distinguished Advanced-Level Teacher
In order to encourage continued growth and development over time, with increased understanding of practices and their techniques and excellence in teaching, time, study, and dedication are the formula. To reach the 1100-hour level can take at least five, seven, or more years to complete. Typically, each Advanced Yoga Teacher Training is two weeks long and qualifies for 100 hours. Upon completion of the required courses, you will become recognized as a Distinguished Advanced-Level Teacher, a qualification that reflects many years of dedicated practice and study.
There are no shortcuts on this path! But we can enjoy the process.
While professional organizations, such as Centered Yoga and Yoga Alliance, require continuing education for teachers, we hope you choose to take these courses out of a sincere and genuine interest in learning rather than obligation or necessity. If you put your growth and development first, everything else follows easily and automatically, even any requirements you may need for certification.
Great quality in terms of teachers and environment. The course content was diverse and relevant. The overall experience was challenging, yet enjoyable.
