Online Training

Join any time & complete at your own pace


Join Tiffany Cruikshank and Rachel Land for the Hip Intensive Yoga Teacher Training. This 55-hour advanced online teacher training provides a thorough examination of the hip’s anatomy, dysfunction, and the application of yoga to address common contraindications. The hip curriculum is one of our core orthopedic modules along with the spine and shoulder modules – all of which are highly recommended for our advanced teachers.

In-line with the current educational industry standards under COVID-19, this training is being offered in an online format.

Who is This Training For?

For teachers dedicated to a higher standard of learning looking to deepen their knowledge.

The Hip Intensive Yoga Teacher Training is a 55-hour advanced online training for yoga teachers as well as physicians, healthcare providers, coaches & fitness instructors with yoga experience who are interested in learning more about this invaluable curriculum. To fully benefit from this training, we recommend that anyone considering enrollment is actively working with students and clients within a yoga or therapeutic setting.

We believe that an experienced yoga teacher is a key component in our healthcare network and with our credentials, people know they have a teacher who is knowledgeable and experienced. The 500-hour advanced training focuses on a deeper understanding of western anatomy and physiology and its application to the traditional yoga philosophy. We train our teachers to understand the body and the practice so that they can understand how to apply the practice to the individual with any style or level of practice to create personalized therapeutic yoga sessions.

Program Structure

This training has six sections – each section is composed of pre-recorded lectures, asana practices, review and homework to integrate the information.

We also have a scheduled Q&A call for each section to keep you on track. If you’re unable to join the Q&A calls, you can post your questions online and watch the recording within the online portal whenever you like.

Live Q&A Schedule (subject to change):

  • – Section 1: Tuesday, May 18th at 12pm PST
  • – Section 2: Tuesday, June 1st at 12pm PST
  • – Section 3: Tuesday, June 15th at 12pm PST
  • – Section 4: Tuesday, June 29th at 12pm PST
  • – Section 5: Tuesday, July 13th at 12pm PST
  • – Section 6: Tuesday, July 27th at 12pm PST

With the new academic system we’ve implemented this year, the official dates for Spring Quarter are May 3rd – July 28th, 2021 – and we would love for you to complete this live training with us during this timeframe if it works with your schedule. It is our hope that having a Spring Quarter in place will give our yoga teacher training program a more academic feel and provide a more realistic timeline to complete your trainings with continuous support from Yoga Medicine along the way.

However, you are still welcome to join this training at any time – we created this online training to be flexible with your schedule so you can complete it at your own pace. The main difference is that each section will be released every two weeks, and there are now two weeks in between each live Q&A call – so you can weave the work of the training into your life and not work your life around the training. There is no deadline by which you need to complete the training as all sessions will be recorded, and you’ll have unlimited access to the training materials even after completion. Most of all we are committed to bringing you the highest quality of education by our incredible teachers to your door.

This yoga teacher training will count as 55 ‘in-person/contact’ hours towards your 500-hour/1000-hour Yoga Medicine certification. Directly following the yoga teacher training you will be invited to take an online exam to receive your certificate of completion and training hours. These hours will still be recognized by Yoga Alliance as well, click here to read more about their 2021 Online Teaching Exemption.
