“For teachers & practitioners dedicated to their yoga journey, who want to dive deep into this beautiful, challenging form of modern postural yoga.”

  • You just love yoga and want to go deeper into a Hatha practice. Right On! You're covered here too. With the combined training, reading and discussion and interactive opportunities to learn, you'll get to really experience the Hatha tradition.

  • You'd like to learn how to sequence for Hatha classes (even if you've already done this at the 200hr level). Great, this is the one!

  • You want to start (or continue) building toward your 300hr teaching certificate! Amazing, this is a 300hr module!
