TEACHER TRAINING 200-HR

SONIC YOGA 200 HR. CURRICULUM – Our curriculum delivers what you need to deepen your practice and begin your teaching journey. Every time we graduate a class, we require a detailed program evaluation by the graduates. This process has allowed us to constantly enhance what and how we teach to ensure you are getting the best, most-relevant possible experience. We also always ask each graduate if they would recommend our programs to others and 99% of our graduates say they would recommend our teacher training school to others and, in fact, many of our graduates have been referred by alumni. Here are a few more specifics about the major categories covered in one of our recent 200-Hour Certification Programs…
