Over the two years period, there are a total of six Training Modules, two Teaching Skills workshops, and two 5 day Intermediate Intensives. The program also includes reading assignments and valuable time assisting the program director in classes and workshops.
There are also 2 required guest faculty modules offered as well. The guest faculty includes Elise Browning Miller (Scoliosis and Back Care) and Nicolai Bachman (Ayurveda, Yogic Philosophy, and Sanskrit Language).

Triad Yoga’s 300 Hour Teacher Training Program was an outstanding. I have studied with various teachers and participated in many trainings across the United States in the past ten years, and this was one of the best! Terry and Suzanne directed a program that was well balanced in all aspects of yoga. Their plethora of experience and knowledge was beyond my expectations. The program opened many doors of interest, education and advancement in my continued pursuit of yoga.

Mastering Teaching Skills and Preparations for Assessment Workshop

Each Intensive: $420.00. 10 day early registration: $380.00
