The course/hours count as Continuing Education hours for Registered Yoga Teachers (RYT®) only.
Whether you set out to understand an aspect of yoga unfamiliar to you or to gain another perspective on a particular topic, continuing to learn is crucial to your success as a teacher and practitioner. These 100-hour courses provide the chance to join Shree Hari Yoga's residential program while focusing deeply on an individual component of the yogic path. Each of the 11-day courses includes daily subject-specific asana and methodology sessions which will enhance both your teaching and personal practice.
This course is open to anyone with a desire to deepen and expand their knowledge of traditional Hatha yoga. It is ideal for those who have done previous training, but Hatha is a great starting point for beginners as well. It is are also suitable for those who are not yet ready for the intensity or commitment of a 200-hour training but still want the opportunity to broaden their knowledge base.
Who can join?
Shree Hari Yoga welcomes anyone with a sincere desire to learn and grow through the practice of yoga. This training is an opportunity for you to enjoy life while learning about the timeless tradition of yoga, cultivating greater health and happiness, and making new friends.
While Shree Hari Yoga's 100-hour programs are offered as Continuing Education for registered yoga teachers, these courses are also perfect for anyone who wants to deepen their personal practice or maybe considering a longer teacher training certification course in the future.
