Hybrid Modular Advanced YTT

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

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

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 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 300 hours of mandatory modules are completed, get access (at no additional cost) to the short practicum module for personalized feedback from main instructors. This program is designed for those with a base 200HR Yoga Teacher Training from any school, but the modules are also great continued education training (CET) for anyone, teacher or not.

IN-PERSON MODULES

The hybrid program requires 50-100HRS of in-person learning to build community and get continuous and instant feedback on your practice and teaching. The 50HR Deep Dive into Creative Sequencing is required in-person. This playful and community-centered 5-6 day event is best presented and digested when we can work and explore together in-person, craft artistically off the mat, and work regularly in small and large groups. The 50HR Practicing & Teaching Accessible Inversions is YOUR CHOICE. Meaning that you are welcome to take it in-person, which is the recommended format, but starting Oct 2023, this module will also be offered online, in the typical on-demand format of the other modules. Both Inversions and Creative Sequencing will be offered at least 1x/year in-person. Absolutely can’t make an in-person event work? Contact us at [email protected] to discuss alternative for the required synchronous, in-person 50HR .

VIRTUAL ON-DEMAND MODULES

On demand learning can be invaluable to busy individuals who are adding continued education to a full plate. The AM Hybrid 300HR offers 200-250 hours via our on-demand, pre-recorded modules. 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.

NOTE: The 50HR Practicing & Teaching Accessible Inversions modules can be done either IN-PERSON or online. The online module launches Oct 2023 and is not part of the bundle purchase program. It is priced at $600 (vs $800 in-person).

 

HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?

,The total cost of all required modules for the 300HR certificate program will be approximately $2,600-3,100 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 is 1 required in-person 50HR (Creative Sequencing Deep Dive). The cost is $800 USD without travel/lodging/food.

The 50HR Inversions module is $800 USD if you attend in-person (before travel/lodging/food).  A brand new on-demand online version of this course with personalized feedback. The cost is $600 USD.

The other virtual modules are pulled from our previous virtual 300HR course. They 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) .

After you complete all 7 required modules, we’ll enroll you in the practicum module, but there is no additional fee for that final course. Partial scholarships and payment plans available for individual modules.

We made a chart with the 3 possible course cost options  to better understand price range.

The above prices reflect doing 200-250 hours online and 50HRs in-person. Should you need a personalized alternative to the in-person 50HR Deep Dive into Creative Sequencing, we are happy to discuss a private mentorship opportunity with Erin Kelly, however, the price will be more than advertised.

While the focus of the training is finding confidence upside down (arm balances, headstand, forearm stand, handstand, pressing), many of the full body activators and alignment drills can be sprinkled throughout your movement practice to help find fluidity in all transitions, on and off the mat.

Approximately 3-5 hours of bonus pre-work included. Online version available.
