300-Hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training Program

Continue your journey with SCHYS' 300-Hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training Program. This program is for teachers with a 200-hour certificate (or equivalent study and training) who want to delve further into the rich knowledge that yoga has to offer.

We will take a deep dive into sequencing, western anatomy, the subtle body, pranayama, yogic philosophy, ayurveda, and more! Our Faculty will give you the tools to take your yoga off the mat and into the world.

This 300-hour program is also the beginning step of our 900-hour Yoga Therapy Training Program.  Graduates of this 300-hour program may continue their journey on to Steps 2 and 3 to complete their Yoga Therapy Certification (C-IAYT).  The 900-Hour program is an Accredited Program with the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT).


We are now accepting applications for the program to be held at SCHYS's Orange, VA location - program starts March 2019!

Yoga Alliance

SCHYS is a Yoga Alliance Registered School. Graduates of this program may apply to Yoga Alliance for a RYT-500.


This 300-hr program is offered over 11 weekend program modules, generally meeting once per month on Saturdays and Sundays. In addition to attending the weekend modules, you will be required to take online classes, complete assigned reading (.pdf), engage in a Faculty-Mentorship program, observe and/or assist Faculty in their classes, take part in practical application of acquired knowledge, be involved in discussion of course material (both online and in class), and join Faculty on a SCHYS approved retreat. Finally, students must complete online quizzes, submit a 5-7 page research paper, and take the final exam.  This is all done in the spirit of helping you integrate yogic teachings into your own life, and being able to more confidently offer yoga to your students.
