300 Hr Advanced Teacher Training

Advanced Yoga Teacher Training

Edmonton’s  leading 300HR  advanced Yoga teacher training  program with experienced teachers, modern ideas, and a flexible schedule.

This program is self paced and individually designed based on your vision as a teacher. Just as there is no “one size fits all” yoga practice, we believe that each teacher is unique in their offerings and it is our goal to create a program that awakens these talents, empowering teachers to find their own voice and teachings. We encourage students to ask intelligent questions, determine context and applicability, work synergistically within modern health care paradigms and most importantly create their own style based in both tradition and innovation.

There are 4 core modules (100HRS) required and elective modules (200HRS)

The core modules will include important foundational information focused on anatomy, biomechanics, alignment, philosophy, energetics, and movement practices from other disciplines and their role in creating overall balance, vitality and health. Teachers will gain an even deeper understanding of the fusion of anatomy & physiology and the eastern energetics and how they apply to each individual body allowing them to create classes that are accessible and inclusive to EVERYBODY.

In addition to the core modules there are additional hours of “elective” course material. YOU get to decide what you study based on what inspires you. Both the core modules and the elective credits may be started at any time and we have flexible payment options as well. Once you have completed 300Hrs you will be granted a 300Hr advanced certificate from Empowered Yoga and eligible to register as a 500Hr instructor with the Yoga Alliance.

We also understand the financial and time commitment for educational pursuits. We are committed to offering flexibility for both finances and schedules that allow our program to be accessible to everybody. Once you have selected your curriculum we will work out a payment plan that is comfortable for you. 

To apply for the 300 Hr advanced course, a 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training certificate from any school is required. The successful completion of 300 hours of Empowered Yoga continued education will certify you as a 500 Hour Registered Yoga Teacher, as recognized by Yoga Alliance.

Please contact Michele at info@empoweredyoga.ca for more information. We also offer payment plans for those needing a little extra time to complete payment.

The Elective modules will cost around $3000-$3600 depending on the courses you select. The total cost of the 300HR Advanced Teacher raining is aproximately $5000-$5400. Again for those who know all of the courses they would like to complete we can offer an affordable and flexible payment plan.

If you are not sure what and when you want to complete the courses, no big deal you can  select individual modules from the advanced yoga teacher training curriculum and all the credits will be retroactive.
