Hybrid Modular Advanced YTT

300HR (500HR Track) - YogaAlliance.org Registered


The Authentic Movements hybrid 300HR training combines the best of both worlds. Get experience in communal creativity and direct, immediate feedback with our in-person (or live-streamed) modules. Work at your own pace, pause, revisit, and take your time digesting the content in our online modules. Plus you can do any of the modules in any order that you prefer. Once all 275 hours of mandatory modules are completed, get access (at no additional cost) to the practicum module for personalized feedback from main instructors. This program is designed for those with a base 200HR Yoga Teacher Training from any school.


The hybrid program requires 100HRS of live learning – whether in-person or live-streamed. Currently, Team Authentic Movements has plans to offer 2-3 modules per year, and will rotate between our 50HR Practicing and Teaching Inversions, as well as 50HR Deep Dive Into Creative Sequencing. These two modules are the most conducive to community learning and immediate feedback. We recognize that not everyone can attend 5 day trainings, hence the option for live-stream attendance. Additional options for these live learning modules may be included in the future.


 Launching monthly over the fall of 2022. These are mandatory modules that are outlined below and can be completed in any order. You’re also welcome to purchase and practice a single module without applying it to our program! They all stand alone, and all have helpful pre-work included as additional, optional hours on top of the advertised amount. These modules will not be changing, and are included to exceed the criteria for optional YogaAlliance.org registration. Each module is available for 1 year after purchase, so come back to the content as needed and take your time.


The total cost of all required modules for the 500HR certificate program will be approximately $2,300-3,200 USD.  The range of price is due to the flexibility and variety of options with in the program.  Those different options are detailed below.

There are 2 required Live Trainings. These are $500-800 USD each depending on if you attend in-person or via live stream.  

The virtual modules are pre-recorded, completely on-demand, and work at your own pace. The 5 required modules currently cost $1525 USD if purchase individually, or $1220 if you purchase as a bundle (20% discount) .
