What is the Forrest Yoga 300-Hour Teaching Training?

This CET course is a part of the Forrest Yoga 300-hour Certification and qualifies for Continuing Education credits with Yoga Alliance. Both this CET and the 300-HR Certification are open to yoga teachers of any lineage--it is not necessary to have a 200-hr FY Foundation training.

  • This module will combine with your existing 200-hour RYT Training: up-leveling you to become a Yoga Alliance 500 Hour Registered Yoga Teacher.

  • Not only will you expand your knowledge and grow as a teacher through this process, you will also develop deeper ties to the beautiful family we have here in Forrest Yoga.

  • This is a powerful program designed to bring you closer with the other teachers and Guardians in the community, expanding your networking reach as well as your bonds of friendship. Think back to your teacher training and how close you got to everyone there. Now imagine adding 300 hours to that, and breaking it up over a year or so - this is a fantastic chance for you to get out there and be seen!

  • This program consists of 6 modules taught by Forrest Yoga Guardians. It is open to yoga teachers of any background or style who have completed a 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training.

  • After you finish the program, you can register with Yoga Alliance as 500-RYT. This program will take about a year to complete, possibly faster if you've already completed the 9-Day Forrest Yoga Advanced Teacher Training and the Effective Coaching and Teaching.
