300 Hour Teacher Training

12-13-23LRYclass-12 (1).jpg

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, where you'll work one-on-one with a mentor to co-create a program that meets your personal goals and supports your growth as a yoga teacher. 

"The Laughing River Yoga Teacher Training

Program is the best thing I ever did for myself."

-Lisa G.

"I wish I could do it all over again."

-Liz W.
