Our Mini Teacher Trainings/Short Courses are usually 2 hours or 3 hours in length and are offered to anyone who is interested in the subject of the training. If you are already an RYT200 with Yoga Alliance (YA), you may take these trainings for Continuing Education Contact Hours.

Every 3 years from the date of registration with YA, RYT200s must complete at least 10 hours of Continuing Education Contact Hours. When you have completed a mini training, you will receive a Certificate of Completion detailing the subject & category of the training along with the number of contact hours. This certificate (or a copy of it) may be turned in to YA as proof of Continuing Education Contact Hours. Linda is a Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider (YACEP).

You do not have to be an RYT200 to participate in these mini trainings! If you are curious or interested in deepening your knowledge of yoga, you are also welcome to attend.
