Our Advanced Professional Certification at the 1000-hour level is designed for students dedicated to ongoing personal and professional development as DevaTree Yoga Educators.
Students can embark on the 1000-hour track if they have already completed their initial *500-hrs of certification, either with DevaTree or any other recognized school of yoga. Your first 500-hrs combine with the additional 500 hours offered in this program to equal 1000 hours.
Your studies can include any of the specialized courses listed below, as well as an Independent Study on your topic of interest, as mutually agreed on by you and your Faculty Advisor. Your Independent Study research may also be used to create outcomes in your yoga business. For example, past students have produced yoga music, created a series of classes or workshops, written a book or booklet, or designed a website for their area of interest.
The 1000-hr Certification is focused on deepening student understanding and application of the DevaTree methodology. While your first 500-hrs can be from another recognized school, your final 500-hrs need to be courses under the DevaTree umbrella. If you have already completed more than 500-hrs with DevaTree, any hours that were not included in your first 500 can be applied to the 1000-hr track.
The 1000-hr track is best suited to students who are self-motivated and able to learn independently.

The 1000-hr program with DevaTree was transformational to say the least. I used my independent study period to look at the similarities between yoga & qigong and this morphed into uncovering layers of myself I didn’t know existed. The study was truly about “Who I am”. The extra time to focus on myself was nourishing for my soul and exactly what I needed. Tamika & Carolyn were wonderful at holding space for me as I navigated the final 50-hours to complete my training. I came away more excited about who I am and what I have to offer this world. I am more at home within myself than I have ever felt before. What a wonderful way to complete my 1000-hour training. I have so much love for DevaTree.
