Earn your 500-hour teaching certification through one of the most highly respected programs in the country – a rigorous in-depth study of all eight limbs of classical yoga.
If you seriously want to investigate the history, philosophy, psychology, transformative powers, and applicability of yoga therapy to today’s crazy lifestyles…and learn to teach asana exceptionally well…this training is for you.
This unique training program begins the weekend of October 9-11 and runs for one weekend per month for 10 months. There will be about 8 hours of live streaming every weekend, from Friday evening through Sunday midday. The remaining contact hours will be completed through monthly viewings of lectures, documentaries, and asana classes which may be viewed at your convenience throughout the month.
You have the capacity to provide the spiritual guidance for a global shift in consciousness. You can change the world and help others develop kindness, compassion, and joyfulness, the encoded teachings of the Yoga Sutra.
Whether it is your dream to teach athletes, seniors, those with disabilities, at risk youth, or to teach in all corners of your community – tell us your dream. We will help you devise an Individualized Yoga Program (IYP) that focuses on the area in your community or the special population, with whom you hope to work. Working with your IYP also prepares you to continue your studies in any of the specialized yoga service programs of the Give Back Yoga Foundation, such as Mindful Yoga Therapy for Veterans, The Prison Yoga Project, Yoga for 12 Step Recovery, Yoga for Cancer, and others.
