West Chester University is now offering a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Certificate Program. This program can be completed in one to four years and will allow each individual teacher trainee to create a schedule that works best with his or her main course of study while at WCU.
The remainder of the 60 hours will include:
The cost of the program is $850.00*, and can be paid in installments. If you are a full time student, the additional courses for this are basically at no extra cost if you take them as your 5th or 6th class. The fees for this program are for the additional seminars required to fulfill program requirements set forth by WCU and Yoga Alliance.
Upon completion of the 200 hour program, you will receive a certificate from the College of Health Sciences that will allow you to become a registered yoga teacher (R.Y.T.) through Yoga Alliance-the national education and support organization for Yoga in the United States. This designation will allow you to be more marketable in numerous vocations.
*The cost of a Yoga Teacher Training program at most studios starts at $2,000.
