For those interested in the Teacher Training program at Yoga Shala of Portland, there are three open houses to ask questions and learn more about it. These open houses will be held on June 25, July 23, and August 20 (all Saturdays) from 3-5pm at the North Williams location (3808 North Williams Ave.). Visit the Teacher Training website at for more information about the program.

Yoga Shala’s Advanced Studies & Teacher Training 500 hour Program “menu” system allows for you to choose the courses you want to take and when you want to take them. You can complete the program over the course of two to four years and can choose to participate on a full or part-time basis. This flexibility allows you to tailor your curriculum through a combination of required and elective courses taught by our highly-qualified staff and internationally-renowned visiting teachers.

Already have a 200 hour certification? This program also allows you to customize your continued learning to bring you up to the 500 hour mark. We will gladly meet with you to help plan the best course for you.

Courses begin throughout the year. You can start your program at any time. You won’t need to wait any longer to deepen your personal practice and begin the exciting journey towards teaching certification. Classes are open to ALL students and accredited towards Yoga Shala’s 500-hour Teacher Training & Advanced Studies program. The program far exceeds the requirements for the Yoga Alliance Registry, and you can receive registration through the Yoga Alliance. In addition, many of our courses apply for CEU’s for massage, KYM, KHYF, Therapists, and Dance.
