Welcome to Yoga in State College's Yoga Certificate Program. we have been offering Yoga Instruction since 1998 here in downtown State College and have had the pleasure of experiencing over 100,000 student hours of classes.
Our instructors have sought out Instruction from some of the most highly respected teachers in the world of Yoga.
Everyone has a different reason to learn some of the more advanced aspects of Yoga, and for this reason we have established different certification levels.
Our first level of certification ~ the 50 hour certificate is designed for those who want to know more about how yoga works and want to share that knowledge with friends and family as well as fitness instructors and physical education teachers who want to add a basic Yoga class to their repertiore in a gym, fitness facility or a classroom.
This certificate program will familiarize you with basic asanas ( postures ) , methods of bringing the mind to stillness, meditation techniques and basic Yoga philosophy.
It will leave you equipped to teach a basic yoga class to the enjoyment of your students. The 50 hour program meets in two different ways. If you are local you can come Tuesdays from 6-9 and every other Sunday from 9-4.
After completion of your 50 hour certificate program you will be encouraged to join the National Ayurvedic Medicine Association . General membership is open to anyone who supports the vision, mission, purpose and goals of NAMA. Cost of the 50 hour certificate Program is $598. You may split the payments in two!
You may continue on toward a 200 hour registration program by accumulating (4) 50~hour programs. (Each program will cover a different book) Call Doug at 610-780-9821 for details or to enroll. The 200 hour program is designed more for those who may want to open a yoga studio or teach more than one or two classes a week. This program is sanctioned by Yoga Alliance and its completion will entitle you to register with Yoga Alliance and a RYT.
