Become a Certified Yoga Teacher (RYT 200/500) through Cloud Nine Yoga School:

First and foremost, since 1999, Cloud Nine Yoga has developed an acclaimed educational curriculum for yoga teachers. We’ve perfected our 200-hr In-depth Yoga Study & Basic 200-hour Yoga Teacher Certification course and a 300-hour Master Yoga Teacher Training Program. Our trainers take pride in bringing the practice down-to-earth, a style we have exclusively coined “Permission-based Yoga”. We create a circle of knowledge, where each student is respected and supported, and offer a holistic and non-dogmatic system of learning. We teach the “fun kind” of yoga — the style or type where people laugh, learn, integrate, and grow.

Attend a 3 – 6 month course at one of our LOCATIONS. This option is paced for those living in the area of one of our SCHOOLS. At the conclusion of the program, when all hours and requirements are met, an official certification is granted and you can begin teaching basic yoga classes – see 200-hr Basic In-Depth Studies. Cloud Nine Yoga is a Registered Yoga School, which qualifies for the ‘RYT 200’ designation with the Yoga Alliance, the national registry for Yoga Teachers! The plus side to this option is: a) having plenty of time to integrate and apply these powerful teachings to your life; b) a sweet circle of community is created through meeting regularly (at least once per week) for a period of time; c) you will be able to keep your normal routines (job, family, etc) without any major interference; d) a convenient payment plan is in place to space out tuition fees. All our branch teams and locations offer special incentives for paying in advance or turning in your application before the start date.

Take one of our OMmersion Programs. Usually held in beautiful, tropical Kauai — you will be completing a 200 or 300 hour program in two to three weeks. Days in the Immersion Training usually begins around 7:00 am and don’t completely wrap up until 7:00 pm. Yet, they are wonderfully rewarding and playful. Plus, after your ‘Edu-Vacation’ Immersion is complete, you will be certified! This intensive study course has many benefits: a) allows you to dive in for a shorter amount of time; b) gives you the experience of being on a holiday, while you are learning; c) offers enhanced community as the group energy includes eating, living and experiencing together 24/7 for several weeks; d) a single, up-front payment includes tuition, room/board, excursions and ground transportation (all you need to do is book your flight and bring some spending money!).

After your foundation of 200 hours of yoga training are complete, you can Register with Yoga Alliance. We are also here if you want to continue with the highest level of educational training in yoga with our ADVANCED YOGA TRAINING. This life-transforming 300-hr Master Yoga Program provides Advanced Studies in Yoga, Health, and Well-Being Methods.  It is absolutely one of a kind. Expert instructors, along with the Cloud Nine Yoga “core” curriculum, will take you on a enlightening journey through yourself, fortifying your teaching abilities along the way. We reinforce what was taught at the basic level and boost knowledge by amplifying the focus to that of the Subtle Body, Insight Yoga, and the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra. See the 300-hr Curriculum Outline and 300-Immersion-Schedule-Sample.
