300-Hour Teacher Training FAQ
Just like our 200-Hour Yoga Alliance Certification Programs, we offer our students a taste of as many lineages as possible for the most well-rounded approach. We consider our programs to be non-biased, eclectic, and inspiring, offering the “greatest hits” from the best lineages. Our staff is certified in a variety of yoga schools, including Vinyasa, Iyengar, Ashtanga, Anusara, Jivamukti, and Viniyoga, among others. By presenting different lineages of yoga, our hope is that students realize that many paths lead to the same goal, and they can then decide what resonates most with them. Our educational goal is to help release the student of their conditioned educational expectations. We are not here to indoctrinate our students. This is a noncompetitive, open-hearted educational environment with an emphasis on personal growth, taught by exceptional leaders in the yoga field.
- Check-in is at the start of each session – If you are tardy you will be considered absent, unless you contact email@example.com to notify us of your tardiness and a valid reason. We will then count you as tardy instead of absent. Ongoing tardiness will not be allowed.
- Failure to attend will result in loss of Yoga Alliance credit eligibility. If this happens, we will notify you via email. No refunds will be given due to your absence. Please double and triple check you will be available for all of the sessions of the course you are signed up for.
You will be informed upon registering for each individual course as to whether or not it is recommended that you bring your book(s) with you.

Asheville Yoga Center makes every effort to prepare for finalizing the program by sending out emails to those people who are close to finishing. We apologize for not having a more efficient tracking system at this time; therefore, it is always in your best interest to also track your courses yourself. We provide you these grids upon registration and can send you more if needed. We will then verify this through our system, confirm that all of your requirements have been met, and email you the link for the $50 Completion Fee.

Please allow 10 business days for graduation processing. If you don’t hear from us, or even if you do, please contact our 300 Hour Program Advisor with any questions.
Our courses average 10–45 people per event. Often the average is 30, which can seem like a cozy room, full of people and yoga props, but our instructors give ample Q&A time — as well as small peer group teaching time — so you leave each course with the confidence to apply what you have learned.
You will be sent a tracking grid upon registration to keep a record of your credits.
You should also be receiving an annual email reminder from our Programs Coordinator indicating how many years you are into the program, to help you in remembering when your program expires (2 years from application date).
