Studio Bamboo was the first studio in the Hampton Roads area to qualify to be an advanced training school. To be eligible for the 300-hour certification students will need to have already completed a Yoga Alliance certification at the 200-hour level and have been teaching for a minimum of one year.
Studio Bamboo Institute of Yoga Teacher Training has two different options for advanced training certification. Students can choose a scheduled program which runs 8-12 months or a series of modules at their own pace and interest. The module option allows students to take up to three years to complete their training, and will be discussed on a case by case basis. There are several mandatory modules to complete. Students are able to choose the modules that are of most interest to their particular field of study and the ones that best fit their schedule. Modules can be from 2-5 days long many are often over a 3 day weekend. They are facilitated by one of our teacher training instructors or a guest instructor. In addition to the required modules, students decide which particular module they wish to take, at what time and taught by whom. Students can take up to three years to complete the 300 hour certification.
Students must request applications for enrollment into Studio Bamboo Institute of Yoga Teacher Training Program. Applications must be sent fully completed along with 2 letters of reference – one from a yoga instructor, the other a personal reference, and a deposit ($100 is non-refundable). Advanced training must do the above as well as show proof of 200 hour certification or equivalence of, a list of teaching experience, and an additional reference letter from a yoga instructor.
