You can also do this training as an immersion for a reduced rate, but you will NOT be certified.
You can also do individual weekends as an immersion or for teachers who need continuing education credit.

Frequently Asked Questions
You becoming a great yoga teacher is independent of your ability to do the strongest and hardest yoga poses.
You don't want to be a yoga teacher but want a deep dive into your yoga practice?
You may be at a certain point in your yoga practice and feeling a desire to go deeper. I’ve had many students who don’t want to teach but they want more of yoga’s subtle science, which has brought more harmony to their body, mind and spirit.

This teacher training is endorsed by Yoga Alliance and requires that you complete all 200 hours of the teacher training. However, we understand that sometimes conflicts come up, and we have developed the make-up policy listed below. Please note that you can miss up to 40 teacher training hours, but you will have 2 months from the last day of your program to complete your attendance requirements.
If you miss more than 40 hours and do not complete your make up hours within 2 months before the end of the training, you will receive a “not passing” status. A “not passing” status means you will not receive your certification and won’t be eligible to be registered by Yoga Alliance.
* You can schedule a private session during the program. The cost of an hour and a half private session is $110. A 1.5-hour private equals 5-6 hours of missed class time.
*Other assignments and makeup classes may apply. Completion of the Fountain of Health Yoga Studio Teacher Training program assures that you will have received personal, quality, and comprehensive attention and information. You will have had access to ageless wisdom and a library of teaching tips and information for opening your own yoga studio.
You will receive your diploma validating your training at the 200-hour level and certification with Fountain of Health Yoga Studio. You will then be qualified to register with Yoga Alliance.
Yoga Alliance is a highly recognized organization that was started in 1999 as a way to create nationally recognized standards for yoga teachers and yoga teacher training in the US. Most yoga studios across the country require their teachers to be registered with Yoga Alliance. But know that Yoga Alliance registration is not a legal requirement for teaching yoga. Currently, there are no legal certification requirements to be a yoga teacher.
