Our 1000 hour training’s are for instructors who have already earned 500 hours through a Yoga Alliance-approved training program and would like to add continuing education hours to their existing certifications. A total of 750 hours can be earned by doing Part 1 of the continuing education program (250 hours), and a total of 1000 hours can be earned by doing Part 2, a second 250-hour program offered a year after the first.

These trainings set teachers apart by focusing more intensely on the ancient philosophies of the practice and their relation to the modern world.
