The aim of CrossRoads 300 (500) Hour Yoga Teacher Training is to provide a nurturing environment for 200 hour RYT’s to deepen their understanding, personal practice and/or ability to teach yoga. In addition to the exploration of yoga’s deeper practices, CrossRoads 300 YTT enrollees will delve into a therapeutically oriented segment that will enable enrollees to apply the tools of yoga and Ayurveda to create individual yoga practices for themselves, each other and community volunteers who seek restoration of balance (body, mind and/or spirit). The program is open to graduates from any 200 hour Yoga Alliance registered training.
CrossRoads 300/500 Hour Yoga Teacher Training is for RYT200’s from any Yoga Alliance registered school. Upon completion, graduates achieve RYT500 status.
Weekday Program. Begins Monday, September 11th, 8-2:30pm. Thirty eight Monday’s and 14 hours co-facilitating/mentoring 200 YTT enrollees to completion. No class on 12/25/17 or 1/1/18.
