The remaining 150 hours of the program each year involves home study of books and tapes plus keeping journals on pranayama, hatha yoga, diet and meditation.

The minimum time to completion is three years. Students are invited to take longer if that works better. It is important to study at a pace where we can integrate what we are learning into daily life.

Mantra initiation in the Himalayan Yoga Meditation Tradition not required to start the Teacher Training Program but is required for certification to teach.

Cost: We are committed to offering a quality program at a reasonable cost. The tuition for the Initial Certification Teacher Training program is $1,500US for the three years. This covers offerings to teachers and administrative costs. In addition to tuition is the cost of books, tapes, travel, and room and board for retreats. Continuing Studies students will pay per session. A small number of scholarships are available based on need.
