May 15th, 16th and 17th 2020
Note: The credits of this course can either be applied towards the Spira 500-hour teacher training, OR count as 25 CEU hours with Yoga Alliance.
CEU’s (continuing education units) are required to maintain your status as a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT).
This training is registered with Yoga Alliance.
Spira Power Yoga is also certified by Washington State as a licensed vocational school.
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 and Washington State Certified Teaching Vocational 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.
You can buy the 300 HR teacher training two ways. Either purchase it module per module or buy all 15 modules and save $400.00.
To receive your 300-Hr diploma from Spira you must complete 15 modules and pass the final exam and presentation. The training can be completed in as little as 2 years. Most students can comfortably complete the training in 4 years. However, our program is flexible: You can study at your own pace, taking as many years as you need to finish all 15 modules. After each 4-year period, we will charge an additional $100 to reactivate your enrollment in the training.
Price of this module: $665
