6 Best 300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Online and In Person

If you’re considering taking a 300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Program online or abroad, now is the time to commit to your decision!

Yoga Alliance has extended the training options until the end of 2023, giving you more flexibility and opportunities to choose the best program for your needs. 

300 Hour Programs abroad allow participants to immerse themselves in the training experience and build community. Destination retreats provide decorous accommodation, luscious landscapes, and tantalizing foods that are an additional cost to the training. 

Other options are to do your 300 Hour Program at a local studio. Now a third option is in the mix, with online training options that offer Live and on-demand content.

We looked at a few of the best upcoming 300 hour yoga teacher training online and in-person options. We chose six 300 Hour Programs based on the curriculum, teaching staff, and dynamic offerings with a mix of online and intensive programs. 

Keep reading to see our top choices in 300 Hour Programs in 2022/2023 to get your advanced certification in various styles of yoga and coursework.

The Most Significant Question: Why Take a 300 Hour? 
You want to take a 300 Hour Program if you are a teacher invested in continuing education and desire to open your own Registered Yoga School (RYS).

A 300 Hour Program allows yoga teachers to teach 200 and 300 Hour Programs to aspiring yoga teachers and advanced students. 

A 300 Hour Program provides participants with a 500 Hour Certification— the highest internationally recognized standard for yoga teachers.

Once you complete 500 Hours, you can register as an RYT-500 with Yoga Alliance. Aside from the knowledge and tactile skills you will learn along the way as you pursue this level of certification, a 500 Hour improves your marketability as a yoga instructor. Once you complete 500 Hours, you can register as an RYT-500 with Yoga Alliance. 

5 reasons you want to invest in a 300 Hour:

  1. Develop knowledge of anatomy and hands-on assists. 
  2. Gain confidence in your skills and voice as a yoga teacher. 
  3. Discover the rich roots of yoga through philosophy and mythology. 
  4. Learn the holistic science of yoga, inclusive of Ayurveda, the Chakras, and Pranayamas. 
  5. Apply all that you’ve learned in a practical setting with skilled instructors and peers.

What You Will Learn in a 300 Hour Program:

A 300 Hour YTT will go into specifics, whereas a 200 Hour Program covers the broad strokes of the yoga practice. Students will explore yoga asanas, anatomy, the ethics of yoga, teaching methodology, philosophy, and Seva (the service of yoga). These are the main categories that appear in the 300 Hour Standards set by Yoga Alliance.

Other topics in your training may include:
  • Tantra
  • Ayurveda
  • Chakras
  • Restorative/Yin 
  • Prenatal/Postnatal
  • The Business of Yoga
  • Core/Pilates 
  • Pranayamas, Mantras, Kriyas, Bandhas
  • Kundalini Yoga
Check-in with the teacher to see the complete syllabus and what is provided. It will also help if you align with the teacher’s values and want to work within the same niche. 
For example, If you are interested in teaching Prenatal Yoga, seek an instructor who teaches a Prenatal Yoga YTT or offers a component in their 300 Hour Program. 

Online Verus In-Person Training 

I’ve had the opportunity to do my yoga teacher training programs in various settings, including online in the comfort of my home, at a local studio that fostered relationships within the community, and abroad to experience diverse landscapes and cultures. 

I’ve enjoyed each experience for very different reasons. It all comes down to your intention and what you hope to gather from the training. 

You will discover many advantages and offerings over the training, so know that no matter what you choose to do, you will glean some unique insight and inspiration through your experience. 

Training in person at a local studio space:

I took my 200 Hour Program locally in Vancouver, BC. The program was split into three intensives, each ten days long over three months. The first two were held at a studio in Kitsilano and the final at a retreat space on Galliano Island. 

For my 300 Hour Program, I took each module separately and completed them out of order. 

I took Module 3 first in Kona, Hawaii. It was roughly three weeks of training, and I took another week to enjoy my free time. I completed Modules 1 + 2 almost three years after taking Module 3. The intention was to return to Hawaii. However, the training was postponed due to environmental shifts outside our control, and I completed the final module online.

Pros and cons of each training experience: 

Training abroad:

  • PRO: Experience a beautiful location. Meals are prepped for you, and the living accommodation is close to where you train, so there’s no commute. 
  • CON: Price goes up as a result of the food and accommodation. Paying for flights, trains, buses, etc., is a cost on top of the training fee. Getting time off of work is another cost to factor consider.

Training in local studios:

  • PRO: Networking! Meeting fellow students, teachers, and staff at the studio is a great way to catch a vibe and see if you’re a fit for volunteering and teaching in the space. 
  • CON: Commuting time to and from the studio makes it a long day. Packing a bag of clean clothes, food, and other essentials was tiresome and time-consuming. 

Training online:

  • PRO: Learn and practice from the comfort of your own home. I loved that I could shower and cook for myself (and take cat naps in my bed) between the sessions. I also appreciated that I knew the quality of WiFi and had the security of managing my own space. 
  • CON: No space for idle chats and conversations to arise spontaneously between learning sessions as we are at a computer, and it’s not as easy to contact people you do not know over Zoom.
