For those whom a drawn out course would be difficult to commit to due to life circumstance or
the time frame of their goals, we offer RYT-200 training in an immersion 15 day session allowing students an opportunity to dive deeply into yoga and receive their certification in a progressive, immersion format. We meet for an orientation at 6pm on the first Sunday, then begin the formal training from 7:30am till 7:30pm daily, pacing each day to sustain the longer hours comfortably. During these programs, a vegetarian lunch and dinner together is served on the grounds of Heartwood, allowing us to continue with our studies while breaking bread together to connect as a tribe. Immersion programs include Reiki level 1 training, aerial yoga certification as well. (Arrangements can be made to take Chair certification on another session as a substitute for Aerial if that is a better fit for your goals and you are willing to return again for this final component. Our elective Chair and Aerial certifications are on the last two days of the program, so students who opt out can leave early.) Please consider that a great deal of information must be processed quickly in this format, and while Heartwood is a beautiful retreat center that allows us to stretch out and enjoy nature, camaraderie and many inspirational experiences, we do work hard to assure we finish as qualified, confident teachers. If you feel you need reinforcement to be grounded in the information, we always offer our graduates ongoing training opportunities and you can retake any portion of the training again later for free. This program includes a beach day and other lovely activities to make the experience dynamic and memorable as you create lasting relationships with your tribe. But be prepared for 15 wonderful days of yoga, yoga, yoga.

All RYT-200 courses require 200 hours of study to become a sanctioned yoga instructor, whether the material is studied in long subsequent days or unfolds one hour a week for 200 weeks. Some work is assigned outside of the program's hours, such as 20 complimentary classes taken at your convenience to fulfill the practicum element, or online coursework students may opt to do. Heartwood offers the RYT-200 foundation training in a variety of course formats making it easy for everyone to fit yoga training into their busy lives. See below for more information on different session formats. For those who plan to take your yoga training all the way to include a advanced 300 program or possibly an 800 hour yoga therapy certification, Heartwood offers progressive programs with transfer hours to take you to the highest level of yoga certification you need to support your dreams and goals.
To register for a program, students must put down a 500.00 deposit and select a Heartwood Payment plan with interest or pay in full for the lowest tuition. Paypal credit is an option for those that qualify, allowing students to pay at their own pace and providing 6 months interest free.

Please consider your choices before signing up!
Heartwood does not issue refunds for any monies paid. Your payment for training remains on your account for up to 1 year but because of the intimate nature of our training and the limited space available in our dorms (and the fact that once we hold a spot, we often turn others away) Heartwood will charge a transference fee of $300 should you decide to postpone your training and attend at a later date. Dormitory fees will be lost and you will need to re-book and pay again if you were a resident and wish to be again when moving to another training date as well.
Know you want to take your yoga training all the way to possibly consider adding yoga therapy to your skills? Consider signing up for both the 200 & 300 program for advanced certification. We can help you with an educational plan for your goals and you will save on tuition too!
