The Transcending Yoga 200-Hour Lifestyle & Teacher Training program offers a comprehensive curriculum for aspiring teachers and students who wish to deepen their hatha yoga practice.
Transcending Yoga requires aspiring trainees to have at least 6-months of a regular practice with a Yoga Alliance Registered teacher or attend an "Art of Possibility" All-Day Immersion or "Align and Refine". Students must submit either a letter of recommendation from their teacher or a certificate from "Art of Possibility". It is possible to enter the program without either, but either 6 months of observation or "Art of Possibility" must be completed immediately after the training.
Students will have approximately 30-50 hours of homework throughout the course. It must be completely in a timely manner. Homework will be checked during the trainings. Additionally, each student is expected to maintain a regular personal practice either at home or with a teacher.
