Puerto Rico 200 Hour Teacher Training Intensive 


200-Hour Intensive Yoga Teacher Training

Our traditional 200-hour teacher training is a Yoga Alliance-approved curriculum that focuses on all 8 limbs of the practice including adjustments, alignment, anatomy, philosophy and basic Sanskrit vocabulary to teach an all-level Power Yoga/Vinyasa Flow Class. While most students complete the training with a desire to teach, regardless of the outcome, the training is an empowering experience of self-discovery physically, emotionally and spiritually. Students are required to read several books and complete written homework. *Please note, 500 hours are required to teach at Hilltop Yoga. During the 200-hour training, students may be invited to continue on to receive the additional hours needed. The cost of the additional hours is not included in the cost for the 200-Hour HYTTP.

Teacher Training Testimonials

From our Teacher Training graduates.

“The integrity of the Teacher Training program offered by Hilaire Lockwood at Hilltop Yoga is beyond reproach. It is always evident that the first goal of teaching is to keep students safe, then to keep teachers safe. The TT programs are excellent – and the Hilltop studios are a magnificent place to practice, learn and grow.” – Deb Hart, 200-hour program graduate

“I currently own my own yoga studio and even run a 200 hour teacher training program myself so looking for a 300 was difficult as I wanted to be challenged. Needless to say I was and got so much more out of the experience than I ever thought possible. Hilaire is an amazing teacher and inspiration and this process changed my life. I would recommend it to anyone considering any of her training programs. She is truly inspiring on so many different levels. I am 100% happy I did this.” – Christa Smith, advanced teacher training graduate
