Tread Your Own Path.
We offer an innovative approach within our Advanced Studies program that allows you to customize your training experience by your interests, talents, and skills. Much like electives in college, you get to focus on the subjects you're most interested in and that will serve you best. You'll forge your personal journey and expertise in a way that's as unique as you are, and enjoy it, too.
Whether to fulfill your 300-hour Advanced Studies hours for the RYT500 credential with Yoga Alliance, or to deepen your personal knowledge and self-mastery within the teachings of yoga and meditation, we allow you the freedom and flexibility to pursue what you want, how and when you want it.
How It Works
Complete your coursework at your own pace, and choose the courses that inspire you!
Rather than a set curriculum that you run through start to finish along with everyone else in the program, this is your chance to finally make your training your own. Based on your own interests and schedule, you take the courses you like, when you want to take them. Some of our courses are in progression, so you can delve into a topic that seems interesting, and take the next module to go even deeper if it really sparks you - or simply move on to pursue a variety of interests. Courses are most often offered over several days as immersion intensives.
Earn an independent certificate for each course to help you build your specialization in your teaching practice as you go!
Each of our 65-hour Advanced Studies courses follows a consistent format to ensure a thorough exploration of a variety of interesting philosophies, practices, and specialty techniques while fulfilling the required training hours for certification, so you can proceed with ease and confidence to create your journey. Choose any 5 of our Advanced Studies courses to fulfill advanced training requirements for 500-level Yoga Teacher certification, building upon your 200-hour level training from any tradition.
Advanced Studies courses are designed with an assumption of knowledge at the 200-hour Yoga Teacher level based upon our training programs. Practitioners and teachers who have trained previously in other programs are welcome. You do not need to be a yoga teacher to participate in this program. To receive the RYT500 designation, you will need to be a certified and registered RYT200 with Yoga Alliance and meet other requirements.
