"Yoga is a light which once lit will never dim, the better your practice the brighter your flame. - B.K.S. Iyengar"

Be Yoga has partnered with Firefly Yoga and Massage to offer a Nationally Recognized 300-hour Yoga Alliance Certification in Vinyasa Flow Yoga.  Based in the traditions of Ashtanga yoga, this mentorship program builds upon the essential skills you learned during your 200hr training, and supports your transition to yoga as a way of life.  It provides you the opportunity to hone your teaching skills and steep yourself into a deeper understanding of your own personal practice, as well as the practices of your students and clients.  The 300HR training combines extensive one-on-one mentoring with lead trainer, Laurie Searle, 500-ERYT, with 5 weekend intensives, allowing for a deeply individualized training experience.  With a rolling admission, you may begin your training at any time.  You must complete the 5 weekend intensives and independent coursework within 2 years of acceptance into the program.  Graduates are eligible to register with Yoga Alliance as a RYT 500.

Weekend Training Modules

There are 5 required weekend intensives training modules, each led by Lead Trainer Laurie Searle.  They will begin Friday evening and go throughout most of the day on Saturday and Sunday.  Exact times TBD.  These weekends are also available to others outside of our 300RYT program wishing to increase their knowledge or gain 20 Continuing Education Units from Yoga Alliance.  The dates of the required weekend intensives are:

Independent Study

In addition to the 5 required weekend intensives, you will complete 30 hours of one-on-one training with Lead Trainer Laurie Searle.  During this mentorship format portion of your training, you will narrow your focus on where you would like to deepen your teaching and personal practice.  Additionally, you will complete teaching observations, a karma yoga project, self-study and homework, culminating in a final presentation in your major of focus.
