Advanced Studies Payment & Finances

How Much Does the 300-Hour Yoga Teacher Training Program Cost?

To join our Advanced Studies Teacher Training Program, you need to register online with a $150 application fee accompanying your application. Then, you pay for each of the 11 Modules separately online, as you pick and choose your way through the program. There is a final $50 completion fee to cover administrative costs when you are finished with the program requirements. 


This Modular format averages in total around $3800 – $4200 without any Early Bird discounts (and around $3100 – $3400 with Early Bird discounts). A weekend Module averages $300, and it includes a Friday evening session, two sessions on Saturday, and one or two on Sunday. The longer the program, the more the pricing goes up. Each Module has its pricing and hours listed online individually.  We have no full program tuition.


All pricing is subject to change.
Tuition does not include books, housing, or meals.

When is the $150 Application Fee Due?

The full $150 application fee is due upon immediate completion of the online application. This will begin the time clock; after that, you will have 5 years to complete your training, although we recommend sooner.

Are there Payment Plans?

No. You will need to pay the $150 registration in full with your application. Then each Module must be paid in full with each online individual registration. There is also a $50 completion fee (see tab: Curriculum, Homework, and Yoga Alliance).

Are there Scholarships or Work Study?

Partial scholarships may be available for each session depending upon enrollment. Please visit our scholarships page for more information. Unfortunately, we do not offer work study for teacher trainings.

Can I use Transfer Credits from Programs Outside of Asheville Yoga Center?

No. According to Yoga Alliance guidelines, no outside transfer credits are allowed in any 300 Hour program. All Modules must be completed through Asheville Yoga Center.

How Much are Cancellation Fees?

Cancellation notices should be in writing (via email). Your initial registration fee of $150 is nonrefundable and nontransferable.  For individual Module refunds, cancellation requests must be received at least 24 hours prior to the event start date. Cancellations received with less than 24 hours’ notice will forfeit the full enrollment fee.

The Asheville Yoga Center reserves the right to cancel any program at any time. If this occurs, a full refund will be issued.
