The majority of the 200 Hr program is led by Suzie Mills E-RYT 500. Suzie believes in preparing teacher trainees to build a career not simply teach a yoga class. Have big goals – like opening your own studio? Suzie loves teaching the business of yoga and aspects of building a career in yoga.
The 300/500 Hr program is led by Wild Abundant Life Teachers to include Debbie Williamson and Suzie Mills.
How do I apply?
For our 200 Hr program, Suzie loves to meet with each potential trainee to learn more about who you are, what your goals are and to make sure you feel comfortable with her – since you’ll be spending a lot of time with her! It’s an informational meeting with coffee or tea – at Peet’s or the studio – where you can ask any questions you might have. Don’t think of this as an interview, but a way to make sure we are the right fit for each other, which is most important when choosing a teacher training. She recommends researching ALL yoga studios in area to find the best fit for YOU!
For our 300/500 HR program, simply register for any one of the eight required modules individually, as they fit, or purchase the entire program in advance. Every one of our 300/500 hour modules exists as a stand-alone program and can be attended by anyone with interest, as well as by yoga teachers pursuing advanced 300/500 credentials.
What does 300/500 HR mean?
Any 200 Hour Program (with a Registered Yoga School) + any 300 Hour Program (with the same or a different RYS) = 500 Hours of Curriculum. Once you have registered both your 200 and 300 Hour Certifications with the Yoga Alliance (as well as taught the required number of hours), you will be prompted to upgrade from 200 to 500 in the Yoga Alliance Website.
What supplies will I need?
- Yoga Toolbox for Teachers
