About Our Program

      The Yoga East Healing Arts 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Program blends the ancient philosophy of yoga science with the art of teacahing yoga as a contemporary transformational practice of self care and health and wellness.​ This program explores Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Flow, and Restorative Yoga. 

      Our program is approved by Yoga Alliance and meets their standards for certification. However, teacher certification is no longer the only option in our program. We now offer the "Deeper" track to those who wish to deepen their practice and understanding of the yoga tradition without the requirements aligned with becoming a teacher.

  • Program Format: The program begins each January and follows a flexible schedule which will include a combination of weeknights and weekends for 6 months. 4 Studio Classes per month are included in the price of the program and are required as part of the program contact hours. Previously, all who completed our program became certified yoga teachers. We are now offering two overlapping tracks: the "Teacher" track and the "Deeper" track.

  • Course Costs: This fee covers the cost of the program, 4 studio classes per month, a comprehensive manual, and the Asana textbook. The purchase of supplemental books may be required at an additional cost.
    "Teacher" Track - $2,350.00*
    "Deeper" Track - $1,850.00*

    *A non-refundable deposit of $600 is due at the time of registration and will be put towards the total fee.
