Upcoming Trainings


300 hour Advanced Training

OCTOBER 23-26, 2019

MARCH 18-21, 2020

This program is open to those with a 200 hour certificate while it is a part of our professional yoga therapist program. It is considered advanced teacher training. All participants can count the hours towards continuing education and register those hours with Yoga Alliance. However, for certification purposes, one must be admitted as an IIYS teacher in our 300 hour advanced or the KC Yoga Therapy program to receive credit. 

Program topics vary per module.  

Ayurveda Yoga Specialist 

Unit one

July 13-15, 2018

This program is recognized by Yoga Alliance as a part of our advanced curriculum and NAMA by Kathryn Templeton through the Himalayan Institute. It is the only ayurvedic training program that requires a 200-hour yoga certification from an approved yoga school to receive Ayurvedic Yoga Specialist Certification, ensuring our graduates understand a deeper knowledge of yoga. All dedicated yoga students and teachers are invited to take this training, and a letter of completion will be provided for those who do not wish to pursue a yoga teacher certification. There is a $50 materials fee outside of tuition.
