To certify to teach TriYoga, enroll in the internship program. Enrollment is by level and includes the teaching manual for that level. Begin with Basics.
Ongoing teacher training is offered at TriYoga Centers and other locations internationally. The certification process insures that the intern develops a strong foundation in TriYoga, as well as excellent teaching skills. In this way, one integrates the depth of knowledge necessary to present the teachings with integrity. The length of time needed to certify depends on the teacher training program selected, experience, ability and time dedicated to the process.
To accommodate different learning styles and scheduling needs, various options for study are available. For example, one may participate in teacher training weekends or longer trainings, short-term or ongoing study. Private, semi-private, and group classes may be arranged with TriYoga teacher training staff. Please participate in any way that meets your needs and goals.
TriYoga 200 (and 300)-hour certification programs meet Yoga Alliance standards.
