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 50,000 student hours of classes.

Our instructors have sought out Instruction from some of the most highly respected teachers in the world of Yoga.

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 as a Registered Yoga Teacher.

Below you will will find the reading materials that we use during this course of instruction.

Training is by demand and meets every other Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 7-10 with Doug

Quotes from Students ~ I'm sure you'll have lots of fun playing with sequencing, and you will deepen your practice through the process, too!
Being yourself when you teach is KEY. Theatrical and goofy is fun and people will LOVE it!
Everyone brings their own gifts when teaching and it's about being yourself, not fitting into any kind of mold.
Doug makes yoga fun with his lighthearted humor, and new students are especially attracted to that
Your personality sets the stage for a fun yet supportive and non-judgmental atmosphere in a class.

Sometime extra opportunities to earn hours are available when there are special workshops going on or when you start "practice" teaching free community classes for instance.

The teacher training sessions are a mix, where some are more lecture/discussion (which is great in a group of people who all add to the process) and some are practical and applied "learning how to teach", BOTH are important. Doug will teach every other Tuesday , Wednesday and Thursday by Demand. If you ever have questions on how to teach something or working with injuries or any sanskrit term, then ask us as your teachers. The training is  200 hours, which sets the foundation to a lifetime of continuously learning as a teacher, and there will always be things coming up in class or in your practice that you have questions about, so of course you won't learn everything about yoga in the training; you do get your foundation for teaching and a thirst for more knowledge.

The Reading materials used for Discussion and Demonstrations will be chosen from the Following. Notice will be given as to when you would need to purchase the books, although any and all of them would be great for your library

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics,
jobs for fitness trainers and instructors are projected to increase 24 % in the next 10 years.
The average rate for growth of a profession is 14 percent. As for typical teacher pay in the area, if you get paid per student it is usually $3 to $5/ student depending on the cost of the class and how the studio decides to divide it up. Some places that are not studios, but schools or businesses, tend to offer a fixed rate, from $20 (super low) to whatever you can get.....$35 is probably fair but on the low end per hour class, and of course I think yoga teachers deserve more, but they benefit other ways just by being a yoga teacher too!!
