Hatha Yoga Teacher Training Program 

The Sol Center Hatha Yoga Teacher Training Program is for anyone who loves Yoga. Our program is perfect for those seeking certified teacher training and professional development, as well as those wanting a deep enrichment of their personal practice.

We emphasize the classical understanding of Yoga as an experiential path towards one’s deepest ground of being. All bodies are welcome.

Techniques are explored from the perspective of form, function, and essence.  The studies, practices, and measured pace are designed to help you integrate what you learn and build your vitality and capacity in daily life.   The practicums and mentorship support you to link your personal experience to others.

Our approach weaves physical and subtle, practical and philosophical, ancient and modern, and sets the foundation for living and teaching your own unique expression of hatha yoga.

We are an accredited and Registered Yoga School (RYS) with the national Yoga Alliance.

Frequently Asked Questions

I am interested in being certified as a yoga teacher but already know I will miss a weekend or day?  Or, what if I do miss for an unforeseen circumstance?

The number of hours of virtual live contact is part of the national standard we are upholding.  There are some extra hours built in to accommodate this.  Depending on the circumstance, you may need to arrange for additional contact hours and there may be a small extra fee to compensate the trainers time.

I am interested in doing the Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) Program for personal enrichment, but will not be able to attend all weekends?

If you are not interested in the certification component, it is not as essential that you are “virtually live” there all 11 weekends.  The material we are covering does build from month to month so you will want to review the recordings of the material covered, and discuss with your mentor and class mates what you missed and where you are.

I only want to do the program for personal development; will the teacher training portions be relevant to me? 

Being a trainee rather than just a student is a shift of perspective.  Practicing facilitation rather than just being facilitated is an interesting challenge.  We will ask you to participate in all this as a way to deepen your own understanding of yoga and explore the development of your voice in general.  You may indeed never teach, but the process will expand your own growth and perhaps surprise you down the road with how you are “teaching” yoga.

What if we can go back to in-person training, will I miss out if I am not there?

We will deliver the entire training with the primary focus being on the virtual content quality.  Making sure to keep sessions balanced and engaging for different learning styles, figuring out what we need as a group as we go.  Even if we can gather back in the center in a hybrid mode, we will keep the whole group experience in mind.

 Why is your format longer, compared to other programs?

The program is intended to be an in-depth, transformational, healing experience.  It takes time to learn and integrate the learning into life.  We especially believe this year it is important not to add stress with our typical 9 month format- instead to make the monthly weekends manageable and the time in between clear about how to focus practice and study.
