About Us

Yoga Club’s Yoga Alliance Registered 500 hour teacher training program is uniquely designed to provide you with the depth of knowledge necessary to further your skills as a yoga instructor, while also allowing you the flexibility to tailor your training towards your specific advanced education desires.  As such we'll offer many weekend teacher trainings, each applicable towards your 500 hour Certificate of Completion, allowing you to select those that best fit your goals as a yoga instructor.  Weekend immersions will be taught by many of the regions best instructors, each teaching within their respective area of expertise (more information about our faculty).  Below is a list of the many different weekend immersions from which you can choose.  For a full list of weekends currently scheduled please visit our Immersions page.  Generally, each weekend immersion offers 21.75 hours (19 contact and 2.75 non-contact).  As such, participants would need to complete ~13-14 weekends to accumulate the additional 300 hours needed for their 500 hour Certificate of Completion.

How will This Program Be Structured and How Much Will It Cost?

How will this program be structured?  Yoga Club's 500 Hour Teacher Training Program is designed to allow you to tailor your training to best fit your advanced education goals by allowing you to select from among many specific weekend trainings those that best suit the needs of you and your client base.  As such we've broken the weekends offerings into two categories labeled "primary" and "optional."  Participants must complete six of the weekend trainings from within the category labeled "primary."  All other weekends may be selected from within either category.  We'll continue to add weekend trainings to both categories throughout the year to further increase the variety of options.  As such you can choose that which best serves you in your future endeavors....yogis choice!  We've listed the hours achieved by each weekend and the price for each weekend.  In general, in order to achieve your 500 Hour Certificate of Completion, you will need to take ~13-14 weekend trainings.  The majority of the weekend trainings will be Friday night and all day Saturday and Sunday with a few exceptions (clearly detailed on the listings).  All weekend trainings are also eligible CEC's. 

Do hours from another 200 Hour Program Apply Towards this 500 Hour Program?  Yes!  So long as the 200 hour training program you've completed was taken with a Yoga Alliance registered school (i.e., you are eligible for or currently have your 200 hour registration with Yoga Alliance) then YES your hours would apply.  As such, you would only need to complete an additional 300 hours in order to receive your 500 hour Certificate of Completion.  What if your 200 hour program was NOT completed with a Yoga Alliance registered school.  In this case you can still apply with Yoga Alliance to have your 200 hours recognized by Yoga Alliance.  If you are successful in having Yoga Alliance honor these hours of training then we will gladly also honor these hours. 

How much will the program cost?  Based on the weekends we've included in the program the cost can range from $3,500 to $3,900 depending on which weekends you select for inclusion in your 500 Hour Program.  To participate in the 500 Hour Program please complete the application below and register for the first weekend of interest to you.  Our program is structured such that you pay by the weekend at either the super early tuition rate paid 60 days prior, the early tuition rate paid 30 days prior, or the regular tuition rate paid within the last 30 days prior to the start of the workshop.  Participants must complete all 500 hours of training within 3 years of the earlier of acceptance of application or the first weekend of participation in the 500 hour program.

What Instructors are Saying About Our Program?

"I can't express enough my satisfaction with the Holistic Yoga Therapy Institute's program and all the teacher trainers sharing their time and expertise! When I chose to embark down the training process for my 500hr and Therapeutic Certifications I looked at ALL the options I had available to me at the time. I confirmed my acceptance with this program not only because of the level of convenience and flexibility with regards to the schedule and payment, but also the high caliber of instructors that are appointed to lead these trainings. Prior to beginning the program much of my background and formal training was Alignment (Iyengar), and although I continue to use that knowledge as a strong foundation in my teaching, I have enjoyed softening my perspective in regards to the alignment in asanas for different structural bodies and know that I am a better instructor due to these teachings. I have had the opportunity to integrate several of the techniques I've learned during this training with the oncology population I work with and have found a wonderful response to the practice. I would recommend this RYS to anyone looking to deepen their practice, gain knowledge from reputable instructors or touch the lives of others through the power and grace of yoga." ~ Kristy Price E-RYT 200, RYT 500, IAYT Member (Participant in 500 HR Yoga Therapy Training)

"I began with The Yoga Club in the Spring of 2012 working towards my 500 hr RYT. I was thrilled when they added a 500 hr Therapeutics track a few months later! The flexibility of their program and the variety of the workshops and teachers is extraordinary. The teachers and staff are always very supportive, open, and willing to give you all the tools you need to be successful. I would recommend The Yoga Club to any yogi who wants to deeper their own practice or, advance their love and knowledge of yoga!" ~ Michele Schmidt Yoga Personal Trainer, E-RYT 200, RPYT (Participant in 500 HR and Therapeutic Yoga Training)

"Thank you so much to Yoga Club. I first went to a training weekend for CE for my 200hr Cert. I was so impressed and excited about how the program was structured that I signed up to take my 500hr Cert with them and also to get my certification for Yoga Therapy. The diversity of the styles and teachers involved in the program is wonderful and reflects the wide range of styles and options of yoga that there are now. I love how you can choose your weekends from the list to make the course work with whatever schedule you have. It is laid out very well so you know what weekends you need and which are optional. They are constantly adding new weekends and options. I love training with Yoga Club and cannot imagine life without them!" ~ Talei Allen RYT 200 (Participant in 500 HR and Therapeutic Yoga Training), www.taleiyoga.com
