Moksha Teacher Training
& In-Depth Studies

500hr Advanced Certification

500 hour Advanced Certification Program approved by Yoga Alliance for teachers wishing to deepen their teaching, practice and understanding of yoga.




Moksha Yoga Center reviews and processes applications on a rolling basis as they are received. This program due to its popularity is expected to be mostly full by the early bird registration, if not before. Send in your application soon. We are looking forward to a transformational year together.

Acceptance to the program and confirmation of a space in the training is triggered only when Moksha Yoga Center has received the application questions (part 1), a photo (part 2), and the $149 membership fee/deposit (part 3). An application is qualified as pending until all these materials are received and no space is reserved for those applicants who have submitted only a partial application. The letters of recommendation (part 4) and liability agreement (part 5) may be submitted any time before the beginning of the program. Please allow up to 1-2 weeks for Moksha Yoga Center to review and process your completed application. Please note programs require a minimum of 5 participants in order to implement. Thank you!

About You

If you smoke, even occasionally, you will not be accepted in the program. Please apply one year after quitting. This program requires a significant time commitment. Is there anything that would prevent you from participating fully? The practice can bring up a lot of emotions. You'll want someone to talk to about personal issues that may arise throughout the program.
