ADVANCED TEACHER TRAINING

Unlock and Unleash your yoga teaching potential…

JIY’s Manifest Yoga 300-hour advanced teacher training is designed to take both your personal practice and teaching to new levels of depth, clarity and focus. Geared towards existing yoga teachers and dedicated practitioners, our program will deep dive into key areas of study to unlock your potential as an inspired and knowledgeable guide for your students.

If you are ready to refine and expand your current repertoire, develop the skills to lead with confidence and discover your core purpose as a teacher – this training is for you. Our aim is to illuminate your strengths, meet you where you are and support your unique direction and growth.

Our advanced 300-hour training is offered as 12 weekend modules, which you can take at your own pace, as it will be an ongoing offering and program.

Each module is a full weekend consisting of  Friday evenings, Saturday and Sunday. They will be held in-person at James Island Yoga, Charleston South Carolina.

For those who have an RYT-200, you will be eligible for the RYT-500 designation upon completing all 12 modules and assignments. * Students interested in deepening their studies without doing a full 300-hour training are invited to take any module of interest.

(Individual Modules priced separately)

This program will be lead by Tymi Howard Bender 500 ERYT, along with guest faculty from around the globe. The teaching faculty offers the best of the best: highly-skilled educators dedicated to living their yoga and generously sharing their knowledge and expertise. Each instructor brings with them thousands of hours of training and teaching. You will be guided through the program with clarity, confidence and ease.
