Level 1 200 Hour Part-time

Transform Your Mind, Your Body and Your Life…

Allow your Dreams Become a Reality by Completing a Part Time Option with Santosha’s Yoga Teacher Training

Training Overview

Santosha is now pleased to offer our newest YTT option, the Part Time 200hr Yoga Teacher Training. Santosha’s Part Time teacher training allows students to complete their 200hr + 300hr Yoga Alliance Teacher’s Certification by attending two separate two-week trainings at any Santosha YTT 200 course anywhere in the world.

The Part Time YTT option is our way of making yoga teacher trainings more accessible for those with time or budget restraints.

The Most Common Approach

Often students will choose to attend the first 10 days of the 20 day YTT for the Part Time A portion and then attend another YTT that suits their time frame, for the final 10 days for the Part Time B portion. In total this provides the full YTT 200 Hours.

Another approach is to make up time frame that suits your lifestyle, ie first 5 days, last 15 days, or first 15 days last 5 days or a mix there of.

How It Works

yoga beach Level 1 200 Hour Part timeThe wonderful aspect of this approach is that you can create how you complete and where and when!

In a part time approach you enrol in Part A, the first one or two weeks of any Santosha 200hr YTT course, anywhere in the world. Then, when you are ready, you enrol in Part B, to complete the remainder of any Santosha 200hr YTT course which you have not done yet, anywhere in the world. Or you can attend the first week or first three weeks and mix it up accordingly depending on your availability!

Santosha is dedicated to help you reach your dream by offering this with as much flexibility as possible! So to summarise – you have the option to choose how you would like to divide the course. After the completion of the full course you will then be a qualified yoga instructor and will be eligible to apply for your 200hr Yoga Alliance Certification.
