LEARN MORE. GO DEEPER.
Transcend your present understanding of yoga and take your career and personal practice to new heights. We invite you to join our 300-hour Advanced Teacher Training. Taken with your existing 200-hour certification, you will qualify for RYT 500 designation with Yoga Alliance. Our goal is to provide a program and community to help you succeed—in your sadhana, in your studies, and in your calling as a yoga teacher. Both now and as an on-going network and collaboration.
INCREASE YOUR VALUE
As the yoga community matures and its population grows, experienced teachers are in higher demand than ever. There is a growing need for teachers able to deliver more than what a 200-hour certification can offer. You will study with a variety of masterful teachers and approaches, including the most experienced teachers at Peachtree Yoga and other specialized presenters.
Our Atlanta location and weekend format gives you the opportunity to study close to home and integrate your studies between meetings “off the mat” in your own classes and daily life.
RAISE THE BAR
Add appeal to your teaching with fresh ideas for all levels. Join with a group of fellow yoga teachers to teach from and learn from each other. Learn how to tailor your teaching to create healing, balance, wholeness for your students.
CONSOLIDATE, APPLY, ACTUALIZE
- Co-teach classes at Peachtree Yoga, offering hands-on assists along with Staff Teachers. Receive feedback. Deepen observation and hands-on skills.
- Attend and teach small group classes to other course participants, providing and receiving feedback on your teaching.

Through this course you’ll refine your skills as a yoga “generalist” and will expand as a teacher and a yoga “specialist”. To this end, you’ll research a common injury/physical issue and will deliver a detailed presentation to the group, including a sample practice. Also, you’ll learn how to work one-on-one with a client – from assessment through practice through feedback – addressing injury/illness/physical issues.

For two decades, Peachtree Yoga Center has validated and certified more yoga teachers than any other yoga school in the state. And more have opened up their own studios.
