1000-Hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training

For teachers dedicated to raising the bar by being educated to the highest standard of learning.

We believe that yoga is a powerful form of medicine and that an experienced yoga teacher is a key component in our healthcare network. With our credentials people know that when they have a teacher who is a Registered Yoga Medicine Teacher (RYMT) they can trust that they are in good hands with a teacher who has a deep knowledge and wealth of experience to draw from.

Our 1000-hour advanced yoga teacher training is a continuation of our 500-hour program and is a thorough and rigorous program offering you the highest caliber of training. The duration and depth of this advanced yoga teacher training allows these teachers to have a more finely trained eye to work more closely with their students to create powerful individualized yoga prescriptions.

Our 1000-hour advanced yoga teacher training is not a set style or fixed way of teaching but rather a very deep understanding of the body so that the practice can be adapted for anyone, any level or any style. This requires more training to be effective, but eventually creates a more powerful teacher who can think for themselves. With our advanced yoga teacher training, teachers understand the body and the practice at a much deeper level so that they can work with doctors and health care practitioners to support a variety of illnesses and injuries.

The intensive yoga teacher trainings for the 1000-hour program are the same as those for the 500-hour program (unless otherwise noted). However since we offer a wide variety of curriculum and there is so much information to learn, the 1000-hour advanced yoga teacher training allows you to complete more of those trainings or even choose to specialize by repeating certain trainings and hence deepen your knowledge of the material. In this track you also have a thesis paper to write that allows you to synthesize the information more deeply.

All of the curriculum in the 1000-hour advanced yoga teacher training has an intensive practice component as well as some or all of the following: yoga therapeutics, anatomy, physiology, philosophy, sequencing, assisting/adjusting, holistic health, advanced postures, restorative/yin postures, pranayama, meditation and case studies.
