Insights into our trainings


When you complete the 200h and 300h programs you will receive a teacher training certificate from Heart & Focus Academy that meets Yoga Alliance standards. You’ll also receive a YACEP (Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Program) certificate upon successful completion of each module. If you completed a 200 hour training from another Yoga Alliance certified school, you will be able to submit both your 200 hour and your 300 hour certificate to Yoga Alliance, should you choose to, for a full 500 hour recognition from them.

The prerequisites for the 200h training are at least one year of yoga practice and study and a keen interest in exploring the philosophical and devotional aspects of practice alongside asana. To apply for a 300h certificate you need to have completed the 200h certification either from the Heart & Focus Academy or another accredited institution.

See the detailed content above for full details regarding the core curriculum requirements and elective options. To earn a 200h certification you need to complete the four required modules. For a 300h certification you need to collect 200 hours in required modules as well as 100 hours in electives.

It will take a minimum of three months to complete your 200h certification, and you have up to two years to finish. The 300h certification can be completed in the minimum of one year and you have up to three years to finish.
