What to Expect

The 500 Hour Advanced Teacher Training Program is designed to give teachers the opportunity to take their knowledge to the next level! Our modular advanced curriculum provides you with useable, meaningful, actionable education to help you serve your students now.

Since this is an advanced teacher training it is intended to be completed over the course of a number of years in order to give you the opportunity to learn at your own pace, assimilate the knowledge, practice what you’ve learned in the field, and return to gain greater insights and clarity as you complete additional modules.

Advanced teacher training modules can be taken as part of your 500 Hour Certification Program or independently as a supplement to your knowledge base as a yoga teacher.

Modules are open to graduates of 90 Monkeys 200 Hour Teacher Trainings or the equivalent training/experience.
