HOW DO I EARN MY COMPLETE 300HR?
Yogamaya’s 300hr is based on a credit system, where you need to earn 15 credits to achieve your 300hr. We have one required Training Module called “Core Module” (8 credits). Additional training modules to earn your additional 7 credits will be listed on our site under Continuing Education, Mentorship, and 300hr.
I DID MY 200HR SOMEWHERE ELSE, CAN I STILL DO THIS TRAINING?
Yes, this focus of this training is to deepen your understanding of the asanas and give you the tools to be an excellent teacher and communicator. We would love to welcome you at Yogamaya and respect the format you already teach.
CAN I TEACH AT YOGAMAYA IF I COMPLETE YOUR 300HR
We always love to add more amazing teachers who are dedicated and teach in our style of open-minded, informed and dynamic vinyasa yoga. Teaching at Yogamaya arises organically from an ongoing practice and relationship at Yogamaya, and if your teaching is aligned with our specific class format, communication style, and mindset.
DO I NEED TO BE A TEACHER TO TAKE THIS PROGRAM?
Our 300hr is designed for yoga teachers who have completed a 200hr Training and who are actively teaching or enthusiastic newer teachers who are hungry for more guidance and support to become excellent teachers.
DO I NEED TO TAKE THE CORE MODULE FIRST?
We currently offer the Core Module only once a year, so we do recommend you sign up for our Core Module in the same year you take other modules. You are welcome to attend additional training modules on your timeline. We ask student to complete the 300hr within a 2-year period, but would make exceptions on a case-by-case basis. If you found us after we already started the Core Curriculum, please reach out to us right away in case we can add you.
WHAT IS THE TRAINING SCHEDULE
Core Module is 7 weekends from October 7th 2023 through January 27th, 2024. We will continuously add additional training days/weekends/retreats that you can register for to earn your complete 300hr with Yogamaya.
I HAVE NEVER BEEN TO YOGAMAYA, DO I NEED TO TAKE CLASSES BEFORE APPLYING?
No, although we do recommend it. Please read our program description fully and ask any questions prior to enrolling.
WHAT IF I NEED TO MISS A DAY OF TRAINING?
Attendance is required for all scheduled dates and times for the Core Module in order to receive the full credits. There are limited exceptions with prior approval and for last second emergencies. Note that some missed hours might need to be made up with approved teachers and at your own expense in order to receive certification. We handle all requests on an individual basis. For additional training modules, non-attendance will just mean you do not earn the credit for that training. There will be no refunds for any missed sessions.
ARE THERE ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS TO THE TIMES LISTED ON THE CORE MODULE CALENDAR?
Yes, some relevant reading, group work, a mentor calls with Bryn, and an elective with a South Asian teacher will be required to support your studies.

You may do any part of this training you wish. However, in order to receive your 300hr Certification and be able to register with the Yoga Alliance at the 500hr Level, you will need to attend our Core Module and earn an additional seven (7) credits worth of training.
WHAT IF I HAVE DONE A LOT OF ADVANCED TRAINING FROM OTHER STUDIOS/TEACHERS
