Our yoga teacher training programs brings a modern approach to the ancient practices of yoga. We introduce students to postures, meditation, and breathing elements of a yoga practice on our yoga mats; along with the lifestyle, leadership & entrepreneurial practices critical to our practice beyond the mat.
We are committed to help our students connect with their intention to elevate their practice, inspire personal growth, and cultivate their entrepreneurial spirit. Even if you don't intend to become a yoga teacher, and even if you don't do every posture perfectly, YOU CAN BE AN AMAZING TEACHER!
We believe everyone has a story to tell, and those stories add to the richness of our lives & our community. Your own story can be an inspiration to others you meet along the path. If you enjoy inspiring others & helping people achieve their health & wellness goals, or if you want to enhance your own yoga practice, then our teacher training programs are right for you. The question is not how well you can you do poses. Rather, instead, why do you choose to practice yoga?
The opportunity to explore a deeper path of your yoga practice, both on & off your mat, is challenging, beautiful, and well worth the investment. At the beginning, this path may be dimly lit & you may full of uncertainty. Be confident! You will share the path with fellow travelers & we look forward to serving as your guides. Thank you for trusting us along your journey!
If you have questions or need insights about the training program, or how to deepen your practice, we are here to help. We look forward to connecting with you soon!

What do you get from yoga teacher training with Sol?
A lot depends on what you want to learn and what you intend to do with the knowledge after completion of the training. In many cases, the student is interested in learning for the sake of learning & exploring something new. In a few cases, the student actually wants to begin a profession as a yoga teacher. As with our practice on the mat, our yoga teacher training is designed to help you reach your goals - whatever path you choose.
How long does it take?
The short answer is 200 hours. The format of how those hours are completed will determine when you graduate. Once the 200-hour curriculum is completed, students are eligible to apply for the Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) 200 credential from Yoga Alliance - the industry authority for yoga teachers around the world.
The 200 contact hours include 22 separate learning modules. In our current format, we are offering those modules during 11 weekends of classes. Contact hours include 2.5 hours each Friday, and full days on Saturdays & Sundays. We do make every effort to accommodate holidays, travel for work, and potential sick days. In the event you can't attend the classroom portion, we ask that you let us know in advance so that we can coordinate time to cover the missed material.
Aside from the classroom portion, Individual Practice time in our studio is also required, and counts toward the total contact time. We highly recommend attending at least 3 classes per week, in addition to the teacher training weekends.
As with any practice, your journey depends on each step you choose. At the commencement of training, all students will be provided with a log to keep track of their attendance and individual practice time. Those logs will be collected prior to graduation.

We're one of the few local studios with RYS-200, E-RYT 500, and YACEP (Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider) credentials. If the studio doesn't have these credentials, chances are they are out-sourcing instructors (and charging you more than you should pay!!). Also, if they don't have the Registered Yoga School (RYS) credential, you won't be able to register as a yoga teacher.
