Yax Yoga Concepts’ 500-hour Teacher Training is designed to deepen the understanding of the transformative process of yoga. The 200-hour Teacher Training is designed to take yoga students and turn them into skillful teachers. The 500-hour Teacher Training lays out the path for teachers to become powerful healers, to transform their classes into works of art. We must be willing to live in accordance with the principles of yoga if we desire to teach it in the most authentic and healing sense. Understanding and applying these principles, we develop the skills to step into our classes, and our lives, with open hearts and clear minds. How we teach becomes a representation of who we are, how we live, and the love within us.

We average 15 to 30 people per training. Two E-RYT 500 teachers teach every session, and every student receives personal attention. The average age of participants ranges from 25 – 50.
If a weekend is missed, make up work will be assigned. If more than two weekends are missed, it may affect the student’s ability to have enough contact hours to graduate.
We do not have the ability to do work-exchange programs as we are not connected to any studio. Scholarships are granted on a case-by-case basis.
Homework consists of reading certain chapters of the books, practicing asana, meditating, and practicing teaching. The amount of time it takes will vary, however it is manageable within one’s daily schedule. If you miss a session, then there will be more laborious writing assignments to help you catch up on missed information.
We can give recommendations and have worked out discounts at certain hotels. Most people connect with other students and work out unique accommodations.
