Upcoming Training

300 Hour Advanced Naada Yoga Teacher Training

Start date: January 17th 2021

Teaching yoga is always rewarding and never without its challenges. It is the challenges we face as teachers, and how we choose to work with them, that will take us from being competent teachers to exceptional teachers. The 300hr program offers advanced standing in our 500hr NYTT program to yoga teachers who have already completed a 200hr Yoga Teacher Certification with Naada Yoga or any other recognized school. Completion will bring you up to the 500hr NYTT certification level. Admission Requirements: A 200hr Teacher Training certificate that meets Yoga Alliance standards is required.

HOW THE NYTT 300 HR PROGRAM WORKS:

Students wanting to apply for a 300 Hour certification must register first for the full training and then are free to complete the course at their own pace. The entire program can be completed over a period of one to two years maximum. Once all 6 NYTT modules have been successfully completed, in addition to all exams, and practicum hours, you will be eligible to receive your 300 Hour NYTT certification as standardized by the Canadian and American yoga alliances.

Scholarship Overview

This Naada Yoga Diversity Scholarship is made possible by a grant from the Yoga Mala Foundation.

Naada Yoga has three core values: Passion, Inclusiveness & Action. To date we have seen visible results in the areas of passion and action, while inclusiveness remained a more nebulous concept; achieved by including individuals from across many races/ages/industry sectors.

During a 2017 series of workshops and discussions hosted by the Yoga Mala Foundation, it came to our attention that, due to longstanding structures and systems in our society, leadership opportunities and programs like ours may have been viewed as less than inclusive. This scholarship program is meant to break down such barriers, making Naada Yoga’s teacher training program a more equitable opportunity for all. With all of this in mind Naada Yoga is continually taking steps to ensure that our school and our teacher training program participants and graduates reflect the diversity of our community.

How to Apply

Applications for the Scholarship are available from now until January 10th 2021. Applications are available online here.
