200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training Curriculum

Asheville Yoga Center offers virtual and in-person three-week immersions, as well as nine-weekend course options for students to complete their Yoga Alliance RYT-200 yoga certification, but the curriculum is the same no matter which path you choose.

There will be approximately a 50/50 split of recorded sessions and live interactive sessions.  The live sessions will be mandatory to attend via Zoom during the day.
