About 500-hr and 1000-hr Yoga Teacher Trainings

Professional Development at the 500-hr Level

After your initial 200 hours of yoga training, to become certified at the advanced level, teachers are required to take an additional 300 hours of training with a recognized yoga school.  These 300 hours must cover certain curriculum requirements in order to meet Yoga Alliance standards.

DevaTree School of Yoga has created a menu of diverse course offerings in either 50 or 100-hour modules, so that you can receive your certification in a way that honors your unique interests and fits easily into your lifestyle.

To meet Yoga Alliance standards, 150 hours of your course-time is selected from our Core Curriculum.  At this time, Core Curriculum courses include: Yoga Anatomy Essentials (50hrs); Meditation in the Modern Age (50hrs); Beyond the Basics: Advanced Asana (50hrs); Hands On Assists (50hrs), and Yoga for Anxiety (100 hrs).  

For the other 150 hours of your 500-hr level certification, choose from any of our elective courses, including: Whispered Wisdom: Walking Between the Worlds of Yoga & Shamanism (100 hrs), Kirtan Academy: Bhakti Heart Fire (50 hrs), Restorative Yoga (50 hrs), and Yoga for Longevity (50hrs).

Our 500-hr certification program is open to students from all schools and yoga traditions. Each of our instructors are world-class trainers and have a deep passion for their chosen field of study.    Non-yoga instructors who wish to take courses for personal development are welcome, as well as those who plan to complete their 200-hr certification at a later time.

Professional Development at the 1000-hr Level

DevaTree School of Yoga offers an Advanced Post-Graduate Certificate in professional yoga education at the 1000-hour level.  This Certificate is designed for students dedicated to ongoing personal and professional development as Cross-Disciplinary Yoga™ Educators.

Students can complete their initial 200-hr certification with any school of yoga. To be eligible for this certificate, the additional 800 hours are completed with DevaTree.
