Whether you’re a newly minted 200-hour grad or a long-time teacher looking to hone specific skills, this advanced 300-hour training will bring new depth, nuance, and confidence to your teaching.
Take the next step. Join a small, dedicated group of peers and a diverse faculty of expert trainers for 18 months of thoughtfully crafted curriculum, with an emphasis on reaching out to a broad range of communities through mindful, welcoming yoga practices.
As trainee in the 300HR Circle Yoga Teacher Training (CYTT300), you'll take a deep dive into five areas of study:
- Svadhyaya (self-study) — unfold your own truth so you can teach with integrity and compassion
- Creative asana and sequencing — make sure all bodies can benefit from the practices you offer
- Advanced anatomy — review 200HR material, delve more into the anatomy of the subtle body from both Western and Eastern perspectives, and better help your students modify their practices for injuries and imbalances
- Fundamentals of research — learn how to research students' specific wellness goals and concerns as they relate to the yoga practice and how to ethically share what you've learned
- Mindful outreach — learn best practices for reaching out to underserved communities and participate in service learning at selected sites throughout D.C.
These wonderful guest teachers and special programs will be part of our 300HR Circle Yoga Teacher Training in 2020-2021.

A 300-hour training can be a powerful experience. At Circle Yoga, we know how to ground that power in a mindful, compassionate, step-by-step approach to deepening your practice and your work as a teacher—and we know and respect that you are truly doing the lion’s share of the work. We hope that you’ll make the choice to give yourself and your students this extraordinary gift.
It's easy to be here. Circle Yoga was founded after 9/11 as a resource for the local community, and the studio’s roots in our neighborhood, in mindfulness, and in children’s yoga have made it into a uniquely welcoming and supportive environment. Our students bring their neighbors, friends, and family members here because they know that almost everyone can find a class to suit their needs.
Graduates of all 200HR programs are welcome to apply. We enjoy and encourage a diversity of teaching styles.
Circle Yoga teachers come from a wide variety of yoga traditions, but our common thread is safe, mindful, compassionate yoga, with an emphasis on self-awareness and the long-term goals of the practice. We’re known for our ability to welcome all students, to offer them a rich and varied experience of yoga, and to help them cultivate their own mindful, sustainable practice.
We can’t wait to share these skills with you in the 300HR Circle Yoga Teacher Training.

As I hoped, the CYTT program focuses on deepening your personal yoga practice as the foundation for learning to teach. Teachers and fellow students make becoming a more committed yogi both challenging and fun. Our classes, readings, and group projects all support developing a home practice that integrates yoga poses with breath work, mindfulness, anatomy, yoga philosophy…and perpetual curiosity.
The CYTT program has already surpassed my expectations in providing both a team of competent and inspiring teachers as well as a community of fellow students motivated to learn and support each other. As someone who has discovered yoga in the middle years of life, I have appreciated how the CYTT incorporates compassion without judgment for my own physical and emotional restrictions in my yoga practice. This gives me the tools for offering that same compassion to future students. The program has also helped me discover more freedom in taking my yoga practice “off the mat” in new ways as it becomes more about the way I move in my daily life.
I am incredibly thankful to have found the CYTT. The program is thoughtfully structured to provide deep learning and time for integration into daily life. It is a wonderful mix of personal learning at home and experiential based learning in the classroom. The teachers each bring their own unique strengths and skill sets to the program, and I'm enjoying building my yoga community with peers in the training. I recommend this training enthusiastically.
