300 / 500 Hour Advanced Program Commitment
The Divine Light Yoga 300 Hour Advanced Teacher Training program is registered with Yoga Alliance and meets the 500 hour requirements when added to a prior 200 hour Yoga Alliance sanctioned course. Each classroom hour counts towards the required time and must be fulfilled.

 In addition, outside study, practice, mentoring and Seva/activism will be required as well as meeting a personal Sadhana commitment. All reading, written assignments and class participation is part of meeting the requirements.

An important part of your participation and successful completion of the program is the continuation and deepening of your personal daily yoga practice. As a student you will be strongly encouraged to participate as often as possible in classes that are not included in the cost of the training, but are an integral part of your personal skill and knowledge base.

Summary of requirements for certification:

  1. Attendance to 270 classroom hours or make up, including two 5 day in residence sessions.
  2. Completion of three 40 Day, two 90 Day or one 120 day uninterrupted meditation with summary paper written.
  3. Complete two book reviews of your choice from the approved reading list.
  4. Within the entire teacher training period (8 months) you will serve in community or abroad as a volunteer, either teaching in a special environment (prison, community center, center for children or the elderly, hospital, rehab, camp, etc.) or creating and manifesting an event that presents yoga and healthy lifestyle practices for the public. No less than 20 hands-on hours are required. Prior approval is needed before service begins and documentation of hours is required.
  5. Continue to participate, assist, teach and observe yoga classes, workshops and retreats.

Providing you meet the above requirements, Divine Light Yoga will certify you as a Yoga Alliance verified yoga teacher. It is up to you to then submit your paperwork to Yoga Alliance for YA Registration.

Program Study Materials & Required Books
A comprehensive book list will be provided to you upon acceptance into the program, with recommendations on where to purchase your books. While the cost of these books is not included in the program fee, the expectation is that you are building a library for your continued use. You may find these books to become invaluable not only in your personal practice, but also in your teaching. Also, depending on what books you already own, can borrow or share, your cost may vary. A course binder is included.

Personal Health Requirements
The program will include steady and strong asana, meditation and pranayama practices each time we meet. It is highly recommended that you understand your limitations, both physically, mentally and emotionally and work to develop your own practice. If you do have any specific health concerns, please be clear on the application and seek your doctor’s advice and release prior to enrolling in the course. A yoga teacher training course can be demanding on all levels, consider the present state of mind, body and emotion before you enter into this program and do so with wisdom.

Assessment & Completion of the Program
Throughout the program we will work together in an intimate classroom setting to insure that you fully comprehend what is being taught. Our intention is to be clear, uplifting and fully supportive of your learning, personal growth and continuing teaching abilities. Empowering you to be comfortable, relaxed and competent in the teaching environment is important as well as awakening in you that divine spark of bhaava, love for yourself and others, in sharing the transformational and healing powers of Yoga.
