No, you can choose the courses that fit your life schedule, budget and specific interest. We present all of our advanced teacher training material in a modular format to make it easier for you to pick the best course and pathway for you!
All teacher trainees must complete all three courses modules outlined above. The program has been designed specifically to meet the Yoga Alliance and Yoga Australia 200-hour teacher training requirements. Missing out on a course component or not completing it in time would mean you have not completed the required number of contact hours and areas of study and will not gain full 200-hour certification.
Having 500-hour certification shows potential employers that you take your education seriously! Studying on our 500-hour pathway will provide you with opportunities to deepen your study of yoga that a well-rounded teacher needs on their CV.
Yes! Many of our 500-hour level courses require 200-hour certification as a pre-requisite but we welcome students from any yoga education training program.
Occasionally we open some of these programs up to all students, depending on the content of the course. If the course has a 200-hour prerequisite, it will be clearly noted on the website and all marketing material. And only 200-hour qualified teachers are able to gain hours of accreditation for completing the course.
Our 500-hour pathway programs require a $1,000 deposit for any programs over $1,000. All remaining course fees must be paid six weeks before the start date of the program. We don’t offer payment plans for our 500-hour programs. All programs under $1,000 require payment in full at the time of registration.
“I am in mid-life, and still this retreat skillfully helped me to look into myself, my body, my relationships, the choices I make and what is holding me back from living fully in the present moment. It was what I expected and not what I expected – and I am better – and more accountable to myself – because of the experience.”
“The Power Living Retreat is an amazing opportunity to put Yoga theory into practice in a safe and supportive environment. I experienced challenging asana practice, discovered things about myself I may not have otherwise ever uncovered, learned strategies to work through the highs and lows of life, and made some friends I hope to keep forever. Without trying to be dramatic, this retreat rebuilt my faith in humanity, which was seriously waning in these challenging times. I danced, I laughed, I cried, and I’d do it all over again in a heartbeat. Thanks to the Power Living team for creating such an amazing and supportive environment and bringing us together.”
“Great course content as a foundational training into the practice of Yin Yoga. Teaching environment was relaxed yet with a clear structure. All elements were addressed and there was enough information and practical experience to feel confident about teaching a simple beginners Yin class. Not too overwhelming in information, but a very full and varied course from beginning to end.”
The practice of yoga works at a physical, mental and emotional level & may be rewarding and challenging. We invite you to take care and participate to a level that you feel most comfortable.
