300hr Pathway

Looking to further develop your skills and experience as a Yoga Teacher?

Once you've completed your 200hr Yoga Teacher Certificate you can begin your 300hr pathway. Attaining both your 200hr and 300hr certificates as well as 100 hours of teaching experience allows you to register with Yoga Alliance as an RYT® 500

Please note that your 300hr certificate can only be attained if all of the trainings are from the same school. This means that if you're looking to complete your 300hr certificate with Essence of Living, any hours you have completed at other schools cannot be used towards the 300hr, and vice versa!

Ready to take your teaching to the next level? Our 300hr pathway is registered with Yoga Alliance and has plenty of options to support you!
