At some point after completion of a 200-hour yoga certification, many students find themselves ready to move into a more in-depth understanding and practice of yoga. We are excited about offering our 300-Hour yoga teacher training beginning March 2020 at Yoga & Ayurveda, an affiliate school of Surya Chandra Healing Yoga School (SCHYS).

Surya Chandra Healing Yoga School is an accredited IAYT school for Yoga therapists. JJ Gormley is the owner and lead trainer, offering her years of experience as a yoga therapist, and her incredible depth of knowledge of yoga and its therapeutic methods. Her program offers a yoga therapy training that is accredited by International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT) the governing board for certifying yoga therapists. The SCHYS full Yoga Therapy program is offered in 3 steps, each step is 300 hours and takes approximately one year to complete.

The first Step 1 is the one being offered at Yoga & Ayurveda in Lombard, IL. This 300-hour training is also in compliance with Yoga Alliance, therefore, after completion students will be eligible to register with Yoga Alliance as a 500-hour RYT.
