Welcome to your 500-Hour Modular Teacher Training Certification Program with greenmonkey, a Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga School! This program is specifically designed to empower you while creating connection and building community.
Being a powerful teacher is about living your yoga both on and off your mat with physical and personal integrity, sharing passionately from your heart, and living boldly while inspiring others to do the same. Consider your 200-Hour Certification your undergraduate degree of yoga and the 300-Hour program as your pathway to mastery.
The program includes the 6 individual modules of our 200-Hour Modular Training System for 30 credit hours each, AND the 6 individual modules in our Mastery Module Series, each earning 50 credit hours. These modules can be taken in any order and are offered on a rotating basis at the various greenmonkey™ studio locations, giving you plenty of opportunity to create a schedule that works for you. You will have 60 months from the date of your registration to complete your coursework for the 500-Hour Certification.
We ask participants to be prepared to devote their entire days to the trainings. While schedules vary somewhat from day to day, a typical schedule for a weekend 200-Hour module would be 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM, while a 5-day 300-Hour module would be 9:00 AM to 8:00 PM. Both modules will have breaks that will be given throughout the day. Depending on the focus of the module, start and end times may vary.
Please Note: There may be pre-assigned and pre-requisite reading, journaling, and homework for this program.
