Transfer into our Yoga Teacher Training: RYT 200 ॐ RYT 300 ॐ RYT 500
We are happy to have you join us!
Our teacher training programs are credit based, so we can accept transfers at any level of education. There is no set start date. You can start this week. Generally there are 3 kinds of transfers:
I have done some yoga teacher training coursework elsewhere but did not graduate
I have already completed an RYT200 yoga teacher training program (or similar) somewhere else
I have completed more than an RYT200 yoga teacher training somewhere else
We will do our best to honor the work you have already done. We have tests for each of our required subjects. In some cases, we can offer partial discounts on our programs for credits already completed elsewhere. This is handled on individual basis and will not exceed 25% of the total tuition.
Already an accredited yoga teacher?
Our teacher training programs are thorough, and our graduates have had to pass several stages of teaching. We honor the work you've already done in your RYT 200 hour program and celebrate that each training has its unique value. In some cases, transfer students are ready to join our RYT 300 / RYT 500 hour program without any makeup work. In some cases, quite a bit of makeup work needs to be done. We have found that most teacher trainings around the world do not adequately train people how to teach yoga. Please see our 200 level overview for more information, as each transfer student will need to test out of these 200 hour requirements.
We have a clear transfer exam that we will give to you upfront and the study materials that you will need in order to pass it. This work can be done concurrently with your 300 hour program studies. Should you need to pay for RYT200 related makeup coursework, we offer it to you at a discounted rate of 50%, as long as you are in good standing with your payments for the RYT300 program.
Evaluating your current teaching skills
We have regular weekly teaching lab classes where trainees learn on the job, in a live classroom setting. Your teaching skills will be evaluated at that class. In addition, if you are already a teacher, we may schedule a teaching class for you to show us what you do. If you need to work on a few things (verbal cues, physical adjustments, for example), you will have an apprentice class that you teach weekly to work on those things. You are not paid apprentice classes, they are a part of your training, which is included as a free addition to your program. If you do apprentice teach, you will receive feedback and clear instructions on what skills are still needing to be formed.
How do I start? We have open enrollment - you can start tomorrow! You can even come observe our training before you commit.
Orientation every Wednesday night at 6pm. Any sincere student curious about the teacher training can come any Wednesday night.
How long does it take? It could be finished in as little as 9 months, or take as long as 3 years if needed.
What are the dates? We have teacher training related coursework every day. We believe in long term, repetitive, hands on study and learning. Your credit hours by subject are for you to do at your own pace. We are flexible with exact subject requirements while strict around total hours and Yoga Alliance standards,
