Includes food on all weekend programs and housing for immersion formats.
Students have three years to complete the work after registering. For immersion programs, this fee includes meals and in cases where students come from out of town, lodging. Sorry but we do not offer lodging to local students. We do not charge for lodging, so it is reserved for those who need housing to participate.
To register students can pay the deposit of $500.00 and then pay in full for lowest tuition, or set up one of our payment plans. Heartwood offers financing with interest fees, or you may consider Paypal credit - an alternate that may be a better option for some individuals.
RYT-500 Course dates are established, yet some trainings are added as we see a need or as we schedule guest teachers with special offerings. We try to offer everything on a weekend , daytime and/or evening format so you can find a time that works for you regardless of your personal or work schedules, but some programs may require you to attend when available, or you may need to wait until it is available next season. Note that the * is a reminder of those programs that are mandatory to take. If you have a time frame in which you plan to finish the 500 course, we advise you to do what you can to be available to take the courses you need and want, because some specialty subjects are only scheduled once or twice a year. We offer two 500 immersions a year, Summer and Winter. These session include all the coursework, and you can participate in all or part of those programs to accelerate your progress. All weekend programs that are not a part of our immersions are subject to cancellation if we don't have a minimum number enrolled, so be sure to call us to register for any course you wish to attend to be sure we keep it on the schedule.
To register, pay a deposit of 500.00 and select a Heartwood payment plan option or pay in full. If you wish to pay for the program with paypal credit, you will get 6 months interest free. If you use this option, please contact us about what sessions you will be attending to formalize your enrollment.
The Heartwood RYS 300 certification is a comprehensive 300 hour advanced yoga education program for yoga teachers who have already received their RYT-200 certification and are now looking to dive deeper into yoga theory and philosophy as well as refine their communication and information base to enhance their teaching skills. Completion of this program combined with the RYT-200 and teaching experience will make a teacher an RYT-500. The program is geared to helping yoga professionals learn to make a viable career in health and wellness with immersion weekends to deeply explore yoga specialties along with one on one mentoring to guide them in learning to present workshops, retreats and specialty classes. This coursework expands the skill-set for yoga teachers preparing them to authentically teach a variety of specialty classes with 6 required core courses, along with a choice of elective courses to support career goals. Students can begin the coursework anytime, and can finish in a matter of months with accelerated participation or take up to three years to complete the course work. Heartwood offers the advanced 300 hour training in a weekend modular format, a three week immersion format or a 11 month daytime format for ages 50 plus. The daytime modules are over the course of several meetings on Thursdays, and students may wish to join some of these units rather than keeping to weekend programs only.
