The Triad Yoga 300 Hour Teacher Certification Program Information

See the dates for 2018 below.

Triad Yoga's 300 Hour Teacher Certification Program offers a two year program designed to be fun, informative, challenging, and transformative.  This program utilizes a flexible module format so that graduates of 200 hour teacher training programs can begin at any time.  Although it can be completed in two years, one can work at their own reasonable pace and complete the program over the course of three or four years.  Graduates qualify to become Registered Yoga Teachers at the 500 Hour Level.

Over the two years period, there are a total of six Training Modules, two Teaching Skills workshops, and two 5 day Intermediate Intensives. The program also includes reading assignments and valuable time assisting the program director in classes and workshops.

There are also 2 required guest faculty modules offered as well. The guest faculty includes Elise Browning Miller (Scoliosis and Back Care) and Nicolai Bachman (Ayurveda, Yogic Philosophy, and Sanskrit Language). 

At the end of the program, students will have the opportunity to design and teach a workshop class as their final assessment.

Six Training Modules

The three day modules consist of a variety of classes to inspire your personal practice, refine your teaching expertise, and develop the skills to assist with students' injuries and health conditions.  The focus also includes meditation, pranayama, anatomy, and in-depth discussion about the application of yogic philosophy in your daily life.  Each Module:  23 Hours

Price: Each Module: $275.00.  10 day early registration:  $250.00

Two 5 Day Intermediate Intensives

Each 5 day intensive presents an opportunity for you to deepen your personal practice and develop new skills in asana, pranayama, meditation, and yogic lifestyle. The hours spent together offer the time to discover and integrate your full potential while removing yourself from daily responsibilities.                               Each Intensive:  28 Hours

Price:  Each Intensive:  $420.00.  10 day early registration:  $380.00

Mastering Teaching Skills and Preparations for Assessment Workshop

Effective teaching is much broader than simply demonstrating postures and guiding students in and out of postures. These 2 workshops offer guidance in how to observe and respond to your students, how to use your voice and words more effectively, and the refinement of hands-on adjustments. This workshop also offers time for potential graduates of the program to present all or portions of their final teaching project to other participants for feedback.  Each Workshop: 14 Hours

Price:  Each Workshop:  $165.00.  10 day early registration:  $140.00
