In addition, you will receive an outline for deepening your commitment to your personal practice, weekly in-studio classes, observing and assisting in classes, and outreach. This work totals approximately 192 contact hours and 108 non-contact hours.

Certification Requirements

Once all hours (contact and non-contact), i.e. all modules have been successfully completed, in addition to submitting all homework assignments, you will be eligible to receive the 300 hour Yoga Teaching Certificate. To obtain this diploma of completion you must attend 100% of the classes to comply with Yoga Alliance requirements. However, you may not be able to foresee every conflict, and below is PranaShanti’s Conflict Policy if you must miss a class/hours in a module.

After successful completion of the program, you will be able to register with Yoga Alliance at the RYT-300/500* Level.
