December 1, 2020

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every month that begins at 12:00am on day 1 of the month, happening 12 times

DIG DEEPER YOGA STUDIES 500 with Sue Elkind and Naime Jezzeny is a 300-hour Yoga Alliance® Registered Level II training for teachers who have completed a 200-hour teacher training program and are interested in honing and refining their teaching skills.

With our studio being closed, we have decided to continue to offer our advanced teacher training online. This will be an interactive live training experience where you will still get to know your classmates via Zoom meetings, still practice and teach together, share in breakout groups, enjoy powerpoint presentations with Q&A, meditate and stay connected to community!

The training schedule is divided into nine weekend modules, nine live Zoom calls, bi-monthly meditations with Sue, NEW Pose Labs with Naime, Asana Intensives plus Electives. All hours and modules must be completed in order to qualify for 500-hour certification. We recommend taking the nine modules sequentially. The asana intensives can be taken throughout the training as offered. Electives hours can begin counting as soon as you’re enrolled!

Investment: $4500 paid in full by 2/21/2020, $4800 paid in full by start date, $5000 on a payment plan ($417 X 12 months), individual modules $395

*$1000 deposit holds your spot so you can start taking electives even before the modules begin.
