The Blossom 200-hour Multi-Style Hatha Yoga Teacher Training is an eight-month program consisting of monthly weekend intensives and independent reading and writing assignments, as well as personal practice. Alignment-based Hatha and Vinyasa styles are emphasized with introductions to yin and restorative practices. Please see the full syllabus HERE. This training is registered with the Yoga Alliance as a Registered Yoga School (RYS), and students who successfully complete the training are eligible to register with the Yoga Alliance as a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT).
We believe studying yoga is as meaningful and important to the world as studying science, politics, literature, or anything else offered in school, college, or university. We believe a commitment to deep learning and practice of yoga produces compassionate leaders on and off the mat and makes the world an even better place.

Dedicate yourself to a full practice, learning, and teaching immersion each month. Apply what you learn during the rest of the month - both on and off the mat. Put yourself on a path of dedication, of commitment, of lifestyle. Our intention is to cultivate a steady and balanced learning and practice environment with time to process and apply what you're learning, all while delivering 180+ contact hours with experienced and wholehearted yoga teachers.
A $300 non-refundable deposit is collected at time of registration and applied to training tuition. A training manual is included in the cost of tuition. Other books are required and purchased separately by the student.

Do I have to want to teach yoga to complete this yoga teacher training?
No! Many yogis embark on a yoga teacher training to deepen personal practice, expand knowledge, and/or advance personal growth.
Do I have to be flexible or experienced in yoga to take this yoga teacher training?
Again, no. The only requirements are a keen interest in aligning the body, mind, and spirit; a willingness to let go of ego; and an open heart and mind.
Do I need to be present for all of the training sessions to complete the training even if I don’t want to teach yoga?
Only students who successfully complete the training as determined by the trainers will be eligible for registration with the Yoga Alliance. Being present at training sessions, completing all homework assignments on time, and demonstrating competencies as determined by the trainers are definitely a part of successful completion. If a student foresees being absent or unable to complete an assignment on time, he or she should contact a trainer as soon as possible to make alternative arrangements. And certainly, a student gets out of the training what he or she puts into it. Active engagement during training weekends, participation in modules, and completion of assignments will enrich the experience!
Do you have payment plans available?
Yes! We want to make the training accessible to a variety of budgets and financial situations. A payment plan of eight (8) equal payments automatically deducted from your account can be arranged.
Do I need my own mat? What other equipment is needed?
Most yogis prefer to provide their own mats when practicing frequently. The mat can become sacred space, an environment in which the yogi can fully explore and enjoy the practice. That said, we do have a small number of mats available to borrow. Blossom will also provide yoga props, such as blocks, blankets, bolsters, and straps. Of course, yogis are welcome to bring their own props, if they wish. It’s wise to dress in comfortable layers during training weekends. A water bottle, a pen or pencil, and a notebook are handy. Additionally, anything else you need to be comfortable is welcome: simple snacks, a low-to-the-ground camping-style chair to sit in during lectures.
If I decide to quit the program, will my tuition be refunded?
A non-refundable deposit of $300 is required at the time of acceptance into the program and registration. The deposit will be applied to tuition. It will not be refunded. Should you choose to terminate your participation in the program, you can receive a full refund (minus the $300 deposit) until 5:00 pm MTN on Monday, September 23, 2019. After that time no refunds will be given.
