Yoga Alliance Certified 

RYT – 500 Hour Advanced Teacher Training Program

This unique Advanced Teacher Training (ATT) program is designed to support qualified yoga teachers to develop, deepen and enhance their teaching skills.  The full 500 hours is comprised of the Anusara 108 Immersion, the 100-hour Anusara Teacher Training program and/or the Bridget Woods Kramer 200-hour Bali Teacher Training (one month intensive), followed by an additional 300 hours of advanced level yoga training modules* spread across two years. These hours added to your existing 200-hour certification allow you to become a registered Yoga Alliance RYT- 500.

 

Why do I need to become a RYT- 500 when I already have a 200-hour certification?

In our highly competitive world, employers are increasingly looking for yoga teachers that have advanced level qualifications. If you want to stand out in crowd, become an expert in a specific area of yoga teaching and/or run your own teacher trainings and immersions, becoming a certified RYT- 500 is not only a necessity but shows that you are a teacher who is highly skilled and a dedicated teacher who stands out amongst the sea of 200-hour qualified yoga teachers.  This course offers support and guidance to qualified teachers who wish to hone their skills so they can continue to evolve as a teacher of excellence.

 

*Can I do the modules as individual electives?

Yes. In the current economic climate we appreciate that some people may not be able to commit fully to another teacher training over a specific period of time (Two years).  Each module can be taken as a stand-alone course to enhance specific teaching skills without committing to the full 300-hours of teaching.  This gives you the option to build up the necessary hours your need for a further qualification in a time frame that works for you.

 

Can I do the 300-hours if I am a 200-hour certified teacher from a different background or style of yoga?

The entry requirements for the additional BWK 300-ours Advanced Teacher Training (ATT) are:

  • 200 Hour Qualification comprised of the Anusara Immersion 108 hours + Anusara 100 Hour Teaching Training Minimum of One Year of Teaching
  • Commitment to deepen and expand your knowledge of the Yoga Tradition
  • If you come from another school of yoga or have less than one year of teaching experience, applicants are welcome to apply and will be considered on an individual basis.
