Natural Awakenings Jacksonville-St. Augustine

Variety of Teacher Training Options Available at Yoga Den for 2021

Yoga Den, with multiple studios in the Jacksonville area, has many 200- and 300-hour teacher training courses available starting in January. Students may select either a weekend or a three-week immersion course for the 200-hour program, which is a prerequisite for the 300-hour program.

Yoga Den offers flexible ways for trainees to obtain their 300-hour training certification. Their weekend modular training is a 12-month program, and is a convenient and flexible way to obtain an advanced certification and/or to receive continuing education credits (CEUs), all of which will be recognized by the Yoga Alliance. This format allows time for optimal learning and retention. Trainees can complete it in one year, or take over the course of several years, as the modules repeat annually. Their Summer Immersion is a way to pick up a bundle of CEUs and to potentially make up modules that a trainee may have missed earlier in the year.

Their 300-hour curriculum builds on the foundational studies established in the 200-hour program and is designed to help the trainee get to the next step in his or her yoga teaching, practice and personal journey. Yoga Den’s 300-hour advanced training prepares trainees to teach principles and techniques of yoga that are more advanced, more detailed, and/or more subtle.

Yoga Den’s 300-hour staff is made up of certified RYT-500 instructors and highly trained professionals with extensive experience in their fields. Upon graduation, a trainee will receive his or her 300 certificate. Once this certificate is submitted to the Yoga Alliance, the trainee is eligible to apply for the 500-RYT certificate.

Early-bird discounts are available. Yoga Den is an approved institution for the My Career Advancement Account Scholarship. Eligible spouses of service members on active duty and spouses married to members of the National Guard and reserves may be eligible for up to $4,000 tuition assistance.
