Training Workshops

We have created 5 distinct training modules that can be taken in any order but one at a time so you can customize your training experiences. Taking 4 of the 5 training modules equals the 95-hours required for RCYT status. We recommend starting with Module 1 as some of the content is sequential, but you may start with any of the 5 modules. Please note you must be working toward or already be a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) to receive the official RCYT status.
