300 Hour Teacher Training
The Laughing River School of Yoga 300 hour Teacher Training program is open to anyone who has already completed a 200 hour certification and wishes to refine their teaching skills, deepen their yogic studies, and build connections with others on the path of yoga. The 300 hour program combines workshops, classes, and intensives at the studio with mentorship, private sessions, and independent study.
Part One of the program includes the four-month Teacher Enhancement Program, workshops, classes, and intensives at the studio. Part Two includes a 3 month mentorship, working one-on-one with a mentor to co-create a program that meets your individual interests and supports you in finding your voice as a teacher.
"The Laughing River Yoga Teacher Training
Program is the best thing I ever did for myself."
"I wish I could do it all over again."
Teacher Enhancement Program – 70 hours
Workshops and Intensives – 100 hours
Classes – 75 hours
Mentorship – 55 hours
The length of the program varies depending on how quickly you satisfy the requirements. Although the program is at your own pace, we recommend working with a 3 year timeline in order to maintain accountability, engagement, and organization. Certification is granted once you complete the 300 hours requirement.
