500 hr Teacher Training


Want to become a teacher or deepen your understanding of yoga? Perfect!

All of our teacher trainings are structured to be beneficial and enjoyable for those who wish not to teach. We believe yoga is a path of lifelong learning. Teacher training is a term that we use because we are Yoga Alliance School and that is the language that they determined for these classes. But that does not mean that these trainings are restricted for teachers only. We welcome everyone who is curious, who enjoys learning, who wishes to understand yoga in a deeper level.

If you wish not to teach and you are not wanting a diploma, then you do not have any obligations. Take the weekend module of your choice, learn as much or as little as you wish!

If you already have a 500 HR Yoga Alliance Diploma, or wish not to attain one, you can take our individual modules (weekend topics) for Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Credits. We have registered all of our topics with Yoga Alliance to be Cont. Ed. courses.

If you do wish to teach and receive a 500HR YA diploma:

This training is Yoga Alliance Certified. This training will be 300 hours in addition to your 200 hours that you have already completed. You will be 500 hour certified if you have completed successfully both 200 and 300 hour training.

 
 

200and300

This  300 hour training will be made up of a total of 15 modules over 2 years.

To receive your 300-Hr diploma from Spira you must complete the following items within 4 years. (You may start your 4 years at any time):

  • All 15 modules within 4 years.
  • Pass successfully the final exam and presentation – you can apply to do these when you completed everything else. We will set up the test individually since everyone starts at their own time, everyone will be ready to finish at their own speed as well)
  • Take at least 10 Yin classes from Spira
  • Take at least10 Restorative classes from Spira
  • Take at least 20 All Level Classes from Spira
  • Take the following workshops (2.5 hours/ workshop) twice in 4 years (one of which could be during the module associated with the workshop.) Arm Balances, Hip Openers, Back Bends, Inversions. – This is to ensure that once you have your diploma, you have a firm understanding on how to teach and structure these more advanced asanas in a workshop or in your regular classes in a way that is safe and beneficial for your students.

You don’t want to teach, but wish to learn more about yoga? Perfect!

We developed an in-depth curriculum to help you with your meditation and self-study. Breathing techniques, meditation, literature are all avenues that support us in our daily life.

We offer courses in Introspection, Sanskrit, History, Restorative Yoga, Arm Balances, Inversions, Meditation and so much more.Don’t worry about the titles being “teacher training” that is just a standard Yoga Alliance term. Our curriculum is designed to be enjoyable for both the amateur yoga enthusiast as well as those individuals who wish to teach.

Main  teachers:

Dora Gyarmati EYRT and Carina Terra EYRT

Guest teachers TBD including physical therapists and PhDs

Spira’s 200 hour teacher training is very detailed, we covered not only practicum but also read and analyzed 8 books on philosophy, history, mindfulness and anatomy. These ADDITIONAL 300 hours assume that you have been through a 200 hour training already. All topics that are listed in this module have been covered in the 200 hour level. These modules are  intended to deepen your knowledge. If you don’t have a 200 hour training or if your 200 hour training was not very detailed (8 weeks or shorter in duration), we recommend that you take Spira’s 200 hour teacher training before enrolling in our 300 hour curriculum. Again, this is simply our recommendation. Our 200 hour training is truly different, it is an amazing life enriching journey, you will find it worthwhile even if you already have a 200 hour diploma. But we understand if that is not an option. Our 300 hour training will be more challenging for those with no prior training, but by no means impossible or not enjoyable. We will try to review as much as possible to make classes comprehensive and whole for every student.
