300-hr Advanced Teacher Training Leading to 500-hr Certification

Live, In-Person Training Starts November, 7 2022!

New Format (details below)!

Full Training Available Online Through 2023 (see below)

New for 2022! Full training schedule start to finish (modules can also be taken for continuing education for yoga teachers). November, 2022 - July 2024

This training is presented over 10 modules and a 5 hour study group beginning November, 2022 and ending July, 2024, accumulating for a total of 300 hours of advanced training. With the intent of creating a continual environment of study and practice and avoiding training 'burnout' of weekends consumed with long hours (thus taking away personal time and weekends needed for rest and recovery), Diane has created a schedule that honors what we teach in yoga - continual practice paired with balance.

 

Modules are scheduled for 6 weeks in duration, with weekly Monday 3-hour meetings, 3 Thursday 90 minute live sessions via Zoom, and one Saturday 4-hour session to culminate in a 26.5 hour module. Little out of training work will be required other than some reading and review. Practice teaching is always encouraged to integrate what is learned. 3 weeks off between modules for needed rest and integration of content learned. Quizzes will be implemented throughout with a final quiz during the Zoom session at the last Thursday of each module. Trainees who miss live sessions will be required to make up lost time (arrangements must be made with Diane).

Location: Live sessions will be held at Flourish in Norfolk, VA.  809 Brandon Ave, Suite 210 Norfolk, VA 23517 (street parking available)

Diane Malaspina, Ph.D. ERYT 500 will lead a majority of the training with guest expert instructors invited for support and teaching.
