Advanced yoga teacher training for qualified yoga teachers

Get ready to take your yoga career to the next level! Many of you have been asking for this, so we’ve been working to develop a registered 300-hour Advanced Studies Program with Yoga Alliance. This will combine with your existing 200-hour RYT Training: up-leveling you to become a Yoga Alliance 500 Hour Registered Yoga Teacher.

Not only will you expand your knowledge and grow as a teacher through this process, you will also develop deeper ties to the beautiful family we have here in Forrest Yoga.

This is a powerful program designed to bring you closer with the other teachers and Guardians in the community, expanding your networking reach as well as your bonds of friendship. Think back to your teacher training and how close you got to everyone there. Now imagine adding 300 hours to that, and breaking it up over a year or so - this is a fantastic chance for you to get out there and be seen!

This program consists of 6 modules taught by Forrest Yoga Guardians. It is open to yoga teachers of any background or style who have completed a 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training.

After you finish the program, you can register with Yoga Alliance as 500-RYT. This program will take about a year to complete, possibly faster if you've already completed the 9-Day Forrest Yoga Advanced Teacher Training and the Effective Coaching and Teaching.

New modules will be offered starting Fall 2017.
  • 9-Day Forrest Yoga Advanced Teacher Training
  • 6-Day Forrest Yoga Spirituality, Ceremony, Meditation
  • 6-Day Forrest Yoga Effective Coaching and Teaching
  • 6-Day Forrest Yoga Anatomy and Physiology
  • 5-Day Elective Forrest Yoga Module of Choice
  • 5-Day Elective Forrest Yoga Module of Choice

Pricing for all of the modules from USD 1000.

*Pricing in different regions may differ slightly. Check with the course teacher and/or 300hr events page.

The dates of each module will be announced. In the meantime, you can sign up for any of the 9-Day Forrest Yoga Advanced Teacher Trainings taught by Ana Forrest and Jose Calarco or Sandra Robinson and Sinhee Ye-McCabe this year in 2017.

If you have already completed the 9-Day Forrest Yoga Advanced Teacher Training or the 5-Day Effective Coaching and Teaching, these trainings can be applied retroactively to the 300-Hour Forrest Yoga Advanced Teacher Training. You will not have to repeat these modules. Trainees have 5 years from the start date of the first module taken to complete the course and receive their 300hr certification.
