500 Hour YTT

Jai Yoga is a place to climb to higher heights of living and breathing through the magnificent practice of yoga. As Yoga Teachers, we must take time to inspire our own practice,to learn new skills and new techniques.  Our continuing education keeps our teaching alive and relevant for our students and ourselves. To that end, we offer 500 hour continuing education programs for Yoga Teachers from all studios and from all traditions.

We partner with Pranakriya Yoga, The Center for Integrative Yoga Studies and Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health to offer continuing education opportunities for Yoga Teachers. Some of these courses are appropriate for non-yoga teachers, but for the most part, you must have successfully completed a 200 hour Yoga Alliance Approved Yoga Teacher Training before taking one of these courses.

Teachers from all traditions are welcome to join us for a class or two,  or you may choose to complete an entire training program, thus earning a 500 hour Yoga Alliance Certification through one of two schools: Pranakriya Yoga(500 Hour Professional Yoga Teacher Certification) or The Center For Integrative Yoga Studies(500 Hour Yoga Therapy Certification). Each program is 20-30 hours in length and most run on the following schedule: Beginning Friday Evening 6-9:30pm,  Saturday and Sunday 8:30am-6:30pm (completes 20 hour) add Monday and Tuesday 8:30-6:30pm (for 30 hrs).

The benefits of taking your training programs at Jai are the more flexible schedule, for many being nearer to home, and learning in a local community with friends and neighbors. We have smaller classes from 10-18 participants. Our training studio offers great views of the Androscoggin river. Lunch breaks are 1-1.5 hours long, and can be enjoyed at many wonderful local eateries – all very nearby. Or bring your own lunch and enjoy the river walk, complete with swinging pedestrian bridge.
