200 Hour Yoga Teacher Certification Program:

Join us for a journey into the authenticity of yoga teaching as more than a vocation, but as a calling to serve. Embark on a path of self-discovery, creating empowered teaching through our ten month program. This training includes ten monthly weekend sessions, covering multiple topics: Yoga Philosophy and History, Sequencing, Hands on Assists, Therapeutics, Anatomy, Alignment, the Art of Seeing, Taking the Seat of the Teacher, the use of props and learning to theme your classes. Expert guest Faculty includes Betsey Downing, PhD., teaching Progressive Sequencing in September. Each module includes practice teaching with real-time coaching to help hone teaching skills and address the areas of yoga teaching that are less than comfortable for each individual. Reading, self-inquiry, weekly class attendance, and writing assignments will also be part of this program. Upon completion, each student will be able to apply to Yoga Alliance to register as a 200 hour Registered Yoga Teacher. Our program provides 180 contact hours which meets and exceeds the minimum standards required by Yoga Alliance. Our school is licensed by and in compliance with the State of Oklahoma Board of Private and Vocational Schools.

Innovative and unique to our program, Spirit House Yoga also operates a second studio in Oklahoma City, YogaLab, specifically created as an apprenticeship venue for students enrolled in our program. We know of no other teacher training program in the United States that offers this type of apprenticeship and mentoring for their students. YogaLab, along with our expert faculty and guest faculty, makes our program unlike any other in the county.
