Yogahour 200-hour Teacher Training

June 15 - December 9

Yogahour is a flow style of yoga that emphasizes form via shape, safety, and refinement instructions. It is an affordable, expertly taught class that offers clear and specific instructions without inhibiting the flow. Yogahour aims to be the most doable yet difficult one-hour flow class offered.

The Yogahour Teacher Training is a Yoga Alliance®  approved program at the 200-hour level.  Graduates of the training get two things: the ability to register as a 200-level Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) through Yoga Alliance  AND Yogahour certification (to achieve Yogahour® certification, the YogaHour test at the end of the program must be passed). This registry makes you a good candidate for getting hired to teach many expressions of yoga. So you can take the training to become a Yogahour teacher. You can also take the training and not teach Yogahour but instead use the teaching technology to empower your teaching.
