500 Hours Teacher Training Certification at Awaken YogaAdvance your yoga career

The 500 Hour Teacher Training program is our highest level of certification. In this program, you will be adding an additional 250 hours of contact training from our required and elective courses, and 50 hours of non-contact hour assignments and projects. This training is for anyone with a 200 Hour certification and above. This is what the Yoga Alliance calls a “300 Hour Certification”, because you are adding to your other school’s certification if you were not a part of Awaken Yoga’s 200 Hour training courses. So, you are accumulating your 500 hours by combining both trainings.
