Who is eligible for 500 hour certification?

Power Living’s 500 hour yoga teacher training pathway is dedicated to advanced education and ideal for any 200 hour certified teacher seeking to further expand their knowledge and experience. The course is broken up into different modules and retreats, each counting towards your 500 hour certification.

Please note, 500 hour yoga teacher training includes your 350 hour Yoga Australia accreditation.

Obtaining 500 hour certification: what you need to know

All courses offered within Power Living’s Yoga Teacher Training Pathway count towards continuing education hours which you are able to register with both Yoga Alliance and Yoga Australia at a 500 hour level. To become a 500 hour RYT or 500 hour E-RYT with Yoga Alliance, you must have completed 500 hours of training with one education provider or completed a combination of a 200-hour teacher training, PLUS 300 hours of advanced training from another registered yoga school. 

So, you can train with us starting with your 200hr training and continue with us all through your 500 hour certification, or you can complete your 200 hour with a different Yoga Alliance certified training and complete your 500 hour certification (extra 300 hours training) with us. All of Power Living’s 500 hour modules (whether you’ve completed your 200hr Teacher Training certification with us or another provider) will count towards becoming a Level 1 or Level 2 registered member with Yoga Australia.
