300-hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training

“A vocation is: The place where your deep gladness and the hunger of the world meet.”  
~Frederick Buechner


Are you ready to take your teaching to the next level? Are you looking to deepen your own practice and expand your knowledge? Maybe now is the time! SYA is proud to offer two options for earning your 500-hour Yoga Teaching Certification through Yoga Alliance.

Both trainings offer the depth of instruction and expertise SYA has been offering to yoga teachers for over 20 years. You will learn from senior teachers and experts in their field of study, both from among the SYA staff and invited instructors from the Seattle area and beyond. You do not need to be a graduate of the SYA 200-hour training to participate in either program. We welcome 200-hour certified teachers from all traditions of yoga!


Why study with us?

Seattle Yoga Arts is renowned as a studio of depth and excellence in teaching and our core faculty are among the most respected teachers in the Northwest. Since we began our Teacher Training program in 1998, we have trained some of the most beloved teachers in Seattle and beyond. We have had the time and experience to refine our program and we continually refresh our training with current and vital concepts that enhance your potency as a yogi and as a teacher.

Our core faculty members were trained in Anusara yoga and understand that method deeply. We also honor and source the best from the fields of physical therapy, kinesiology, therapeutics, etc. We have a commitment to including the stream of Tantric teaching in our philosophy, while also continually revisiting the root texts of the yoga tradition.

We believe that being a yoga teacher is an honor, a privilege and a never-ending path of growth and service. We have seen over and over that yoga changes lives and know that being part of that evolution is sacred.
