The Advanced Certifications
Our Advanced Program is the equivalent of graduate study.
The curriculum for our advanced certifications is modular, allowing you to work at your own pace, spreading the cost of your education, and letting you choose the teachers and topics that interest you the most. Along the way, our advisor guides you towards a well-rounded curriculum that also meets the standards of the Yoga Alliance.
You will gain tangible tools to grow your career as a yoga professional, and a new family that includes some of the most influential teachers of our time.
Graduates from any one of the YogaSource 200-hour Certifications are already 230+ hours into their 500/1000 certificate.

Application to the Advanced Program is available year-round.
You can build your own program from our extensive offering of modules.
A one-time, non-refundable enrollment fee of $195 is required to process your Advanced Training application and periodically review and advise your course selection in order to ensure it meets the standards of other governing bodies, such as the Yoga Alliance.
In the event that you are not accepted, we will refund the charge back.
All other payments are spread out to pay-as-you-go per module.
We have chosen not to make any of the modules in our Advanced Program required, in order to give you as much flexibility as possible in crafting a curriculum that suits you perfectly. That said, in order to fulfill the requirements of the YogaAlliance for hours with primary faculty, we have differentiated all the modules in our advanced program as being CORE (with primary faculty) or ELECTIVE (with other faculty). When selecting your schedule, look to create a good balance of core and electives. Our Teacher Training Advisor is available to help you at every step of the way through email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Graduates of our 200 Hour training can count their 200 hours towards our 500 hour certificate and beyond. Graduates of another 200 hour YogaAlliance registered school may pursue a 300 hour Certificate through our program and combine both certificates with the YogaAlliance for 500 hour registry.
Credit for other prior hours of training may be granted upon review of your application.
We recommend a 60 hour or 100 hour Mentorship with our senior faculty. Mentorships are a valuable way of growing as a teacher, gaining unique insider access to a senior teacher’s methodology, and accumulating a significant amount of contact hours towards your certificate. Currently, half of the mentorships are also CORE contact hours.
Certificates are issued for the completion of the Foundational 200 hour trainings only, then once you reach the 500 hour and 1000 hour milestones.
Upon completion of required hours and/or homework for any 500 hour module, participants will need to contact the presenter of each training if they wish to obtain a certificate of completion.
To receive credit, attendance to all segments is required unless otherwise pre-approved by the teacher. Participants will need to ensure they sign the attendance sheets for every segment.
WHY PURSUE ADVANCED CERTIFICATION
"... I am super grateful of the opportunity to practice teach. That made a great difference in my progression. By far that was the key to your program – giving us all the opportunity to teach and get used to speaking, yogi-ing, putting together sequences, etc. Thank you, thank you, thank you, for not just filling our brains! You let our brains activate our bodies."
