Because you love your yoga as much as we do! Furthering your knowledge of yoga is a natural next step in diving deep into the history and diverse lineage of this life-changing practice. When you commit to furthering your knowledge of yoga with our 300 hour teacher training program, you are committing to furthering the safety and knowledge of the student community you serve.

Begin anytime you choose with the 300 hour Advanced Teacher Training Flexible Program

We call this program the 300 hour Advanced Teacher Training Flexible Program because you have the flexibility to begin our 300 hour certification program when you need to. You will have 3 years to fully complete the program.

Offered in a 11 module program over 3 years, modules are weekend workshops offered over a Friday night, Saturday and Sunday. Occasionally, we offer a 4–10 day module as well for those that want to fast track their certification. Modules are taught by world-renowned yoga teachers as well as Savannah Yoga Center’s experienced staff. There are required modules you will need to take and some that are left up to your choice or concentration by way of “elective.”

300 hour modules are often (but not always) open to the public. You may be joined by experienced teachers as well as aspiring yoga teachers or students who want to dive deeper into their yoga studies.

Modules can be taken by someone not in or going after a 300hr certification, though if later they decide to pursue the 300hr certification, they can retroactively include modules they’ve already taken.

To earn our 300hr certification, you need to complete all the required modules listed below within 3 years of registering online with the initial 300hr application. All of the courses below are generally offered 1–3 times a year, only at Savannah Yoga Center in our Savannah or Pooler location. All required modules must be completed only through Savannah Yoga Center.
