There are currently three ways to get contact hours for the Alliance RYT.

1. Mentor with an E-RYT or RYT 500 who will vouch for your hours.

2. Visit a Yoga teacher training center for an intensive training session.

Our on-site training program will make you eligible to apply for the Yoga Alliance RYT. Dr. Paul Jerard is an E-RYT 500, with the Yoga Alliance, and does train interns, on-site, for the Yoga Alliance RYT. Getting contact hours with him is not a problem.

If you ever need to schedule an intensive for contact hours, mentoring, or a short apprenticeship, we can make arrangements. This could take one week or two depending upon the amount of material we have to cover.

You are always welcome to visit us for a customized Yoga teacher training intensive. Call or Email, at least, 30 days in advance to find out details and make arrangements.

There is also a current schedule of Yoga teacher workshops posted under “Yoga Teacher Training” at our studio website.
