Advancing the Art of Teaching



The Downward Dog 300hr Teacher Training program is a Certified Yoga Alliance Program.  

Suited for any style of yoga practice, Downward Dog Yoga Centre's 300hr program will give you the skills to effectively lead a dynamic, informative, and well-integrated yoga class. Core courses are offered once annually and taught by Ron Reid and Marla Meenakshi Joy. Elective courses may be subject to change and are taught by Downward Dog Yoga Centre faculty and international guest teachers.

Our program is flexible! You may complete the program in one year, or spread it out over many years.

Required courses provide the building blocks necessary to become a competent, well-educated yoga teacher, no matter what
style of yoga you wish to teach. You will also have the option to broaden your field of learning through our elective courses which includes our annual immersion course in Costa Rica.

If you completed your 200hr teacher training with another school please submit an application for RYS 300. Graduates of the Downward Dog 200hr Training program should speak with our program advisor to enrol.

To receive the Yoga Alliance 500hr designation, students must complete a 200hr AND 300hr training with a Yoga Alliance registered school in addition to 100hrs of teaching.
