500HR Yoga Teacher Training
Halifax Yoga certifies yoga teachers at the international level with Yoga Alliance. Here at Halifax Yoga, we have been certifying quality yoga teachers for over a decade. The 500-hour Yoga Teacher Training is a course for professional development in Power Vinyasa Yoga, along with a multitude of other styles and disciplines.
You are welcome to join the 500-hour Yoga Teacher Training program provided you are certified with a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training certificate from Halifax Yoga or any other Yoga Alliance accredited school.
The courses for the 500-hour Yoga Teacher Training program are offered throughout the year. There are compulsory courses as well as electives, some of which may be offered online in the future. Currently all courses are in-studio at Halifax Yoga. You can progress at your own pace, and the workshops and courses on this list may be offered quarterly, bi-annually, or annually. Halifax Yoga recommends that you complete your 500-hour coursework within 3 years. This will ensure time to process and practice what you learn, as well as keep you motivated and on track for your certification.
