Our Teacher Training is a 200-hour professional program accredited by the National Yoga Alliance. The Studio DC Yoga School is registered and certified and all teacher training programs are carefully designed for serious students and lead to national certification that are conveniently organized in 4 individual modules which can be completed in a short track of 4-6 months or stretched over two years. Training intensive modules are offered both locally in Washington DC on an ongoing basis, as well as international retreat venues in India, Hawaii and Costa Rica.

The Studio DC Teacher Training program is a is unique approach and intentionally stretches over several weeks which is allowing participants to apply and practice the material covered as well as permitting time to integrate the information in a responsible way that has the power to balance your life, rather than causing burn out and overload in your personal life, as many intensive programs have.
