Click here to see if the teacher training dates are up for the coming year!

Please use the link above to enroll to be on our interested list for the 300hr (200hr + 100 continuing education hours) with Yoga Alliance. This next training will take place sometime between Feb 2017-Feb 2018 (either in the spring or fall), depending upon lead trainers graduate/phd research and regional work and international engagements.

*Hold your place for this unparalleled training for $100.

Likely, this training will take place, beginning at the end of February, and running until early June. It runs about every other weekend. Schedule will be set soon, requests for weekends will be considered.

Please sign up/register/and reserve your place to ascertain this training takes place. There will very likely, hopefully, be enough registration to warrant offering this training and for us to sort out a time frame to work with our schedule. When that happens, we will put up the dates of the weekends, usually running Saturday and Sunday, with training weekends happening roughly every other weekend. There will be some weeks where we won't meet for 2-3 weeks, and other times when there are training weekends together. The times are usually 10:30-5/6 on Saturday, and 9:30-4:30/5/6 on Sunday. We need to have a good list of registration to make this happen. So, sign up and add your name to the list to make this happen, and spread the word!! :)

Please pay the $100 placeholder fee, and if/once there is substantial registration, the dates and times will be posted (hopefully with enough interest for us to schedule the training and lay out dates several months in advance, or months prior to the start). Do plan/consider paying for your training in full for a lower overall price for this 300 hr training. There will be an option to pay in full for a substantial reduction in price.

We're looking for an amazing group to sign up and commit to this amazing training, so that we can offer it again in 2017. Our prior 2015 & 2016 trainee groups were incredible. There is much interest for 2017, we just need people to sign up and register to make it come together!

(If for some reason the training is not held, the $100 placeholder will be put towards a pass, retreat, international trip, etc. or refunded, as desired.)

We do hope/plan to make this happen! Sign up and do your part to have this on offer in our community again, and we will surely offer an incredible training, that only continues to get better and better. This training is far more than what is offered on average throughout the US, with our training manual and foundation in the Bihar School of Yoga from India, with traditional roots, and several amazing visiting instructors offering modern and various styles and aspects of yoga to trainees. We've already reached out to a few potential incredible lead trainers to assist throughout the country for 2017.

More than likely, there will be enough interest for the co-op to offer this training. Help us get there by spreading the word, and signing up today, registering and adding your name to the list online by registering here (via our mindbody software under the workshops/retreats/trainings tab), and paying your placeholder fee to let us know you're serious about making this incredible training happen this year. 2017!! ***

It's up to you and all of us to make this amazing training happen again this next year!!

Thank you all so much!!!!

She will back around the first or second week in August.

**Disclaimer: We reserve the right to shift a weekend, as needed for work or camps with US teams, or other work/university engagements.

***Last weekend will entail a special teacher trainee celebration and graduation 

Become a yoga teacher, through an interactive, experiential, hands-on yoga teacher training, featuring four visiting yoga instructors to help you gain knowledge to teach an array of styles and types of classes with a solid foundation. This 300 hour teacher training offers 100 hours in addition to the standard 200 hour registered yoga teacher certification through Yoga Alliance. The additional 100 hours, for a total of 300 hours, will include additional workshops, visiting instructors, guests, unlimited yoga during the training, experience assisting and teaching classes, and more. This yoga teacher training is designed to be the best combination of all of the aspects that lead to confident trainees, and students who become teachers ready to teach, if they so choose. The background, philosophy, and foundation will stem from the Yoga Vidya Gurukul, Bihar School of Yoga lineage, and this will give us a strong traditional foundation to work with as we build into aspects such as adjustments, anatomy, style and personality, marketing, business of yoga, heated yoga knowledge, supportive aspects such as nutrition, Ayurveda, and more.

Come enjoy this special journey! Delve deeper into yogic studies for yourself, for your life, for your own understanding, and to share your bliss and what you love with those around you. Teacher trainings can be a very important part of advancing upon your yoga path, whether you think you would like to teach, are not sure, or would primarily like to take a teacher training for your own deeper understanding and life. We would love to have you on this journey, and we will make sure to gather through a survey all of the things that are important, and of a priority to you all, in the beginning, so that we can tailor to your needs and individual wishes as much as possible.

Payment Options:

$100 placeholder deposit- please pay online as soon as possible to hold your place in the teacher training, as it is possible, if the training fills rapidly or to a capacity between 16-22 that we may cap enrollment.

**If any payment is late, after the date for which any payment would be late, there will be a $50 fee added to each late payment, and a $100 fee for any payment that is beyond 1 month late. Thank you 

The Idaho Yoga Co-op, and Visiting Instructors for the 300 hr Teacher Training

~ Watch out for a potential teacher training info session for those that have any additional questions or interest. Depending upon our schedule and interest, we may offer this session before an open house at either the Idaho Falls or both locations. This is to be determined, and would be announced on the facebook page, and sent out via an email to all that are in our mindbody system through the co-ops. Thank you! (see above)

*Checks are the preferred method of payment for the full teacher training (early bird or regular payments), yet all forms of payment will be accepted. The teacher training deposit can certainly be paid by credit card online. Thank you.

***Full detailed syllabus can be found on our Yoga Alliance page:


Payment Options:

$699 due by February 25th, 2017 for the first intro night of our training (which is the remaining amount due, assuming students have indeed paid the $100 placeholder online) *This is if someone would like to be on the payment plan option, versus paying in full for the early bird rate of $2650 by Feb 1st and $2699 by Feb 25th.

$999 due by April 15th (considered late after April 16th)

$999 due by June 3rd (considered late after June 4th)

***If all payments are made by due date (at least before considered late), then the total cost of the 300 hour teacher training is $2799. This is absolutely the very best price that we can offer with all certification and yoga alliance compliance costs, along with providing the very best visiting teachers from the west to be a part of this training. Any comparison to other training programs will show that what you receive in total, for the amount, is a far better deal than offered on average for teacher training programs, while also maintaining a level of experiential, hands-on and traditional excellence, incorporation of the training into lifestyle, while offering a variety of perspectives on yoga, in various styles and in types of yoga than nearly any other training around the United States. We will love having you as a part of this amazing community and yoga journey 
