A HIGH STANDARD FOR EXCELLENCE

Scholé Yoga Teacher Trainings are among the most academically comprehensive and robust yoga certification courses in the world. Our curriculum was developed by our founder Micah Scholes, the most experienced yoga teacher trainer in Utah (and one of the most experienced worldwide). Micah has personally facilitated thirty yoga teacher trainings and has over ten thousand hours of teaching experience. He and his senior students guide the trainings, all of whom have studied and practiced yoga for many years and many thousands of hours, and have extensive experience in mentoring and training teachers who now lead inspiring yoga experiences at our studios and around the world. As a result, the rewards and esteem for completion of our program are highly desired and respected worldwide.

This high standard for excellence is present in every aspect of the course, beginning with the manual itself. The SYATT course manual is included in the cost of your tuition and features a wide variety of digital, highly interactive content built using proprietary technology. In keeping with our solar powered, paperless, and eco-concious vibe, all of the course textbooks are available digitally, and your homework will be assigned and turned in electronically as well. As such, you will need to bring a laptop, tablet, or smartphone to each session.

CERTIFICATIONS AND OPPORTUNITIES

Upon completion of the course, you will be become a “Level Three Scholé Yoga Certified Teacher”, a high distinction that carries considerable esteem at yoga studios, gyms, and fitness facilities worldwide. You will be authorized to offer official Scholé Yoga Experiences and eligible for free job placement and career counseling services through the SYU Office of Professional Development.

Even better, unlike most yoga certification programs that are created and taught by one or two people at a single studio, Scholé Certification Courses are the product of decades of study, peer review, and refinement. As a result, they are well known for consistently producing extremely gifted and professional teachers. As a result, being “Scholé Certified” means a great deal more than just being “yoga certified”, and will open doors and create amazing new opportunities worldwide.

TUITION AND BENEFITS

SYATT course tuition is $2895 and includes your course manual, a six month unlimited membership at Scholé Yoga, and exclusive discounts on everything from Scholé apparel to workshops and private lessons. We also offer a six month, no interest, no payment financing option to all students. Even better, an early enrollment discount of $300 is available for everyone who completes the enrollment process three weeks or more before the start of the group sessions.

TRAINING SCHEDULE

Unlike most advanced teacher training programs that just provide more of the same diluted experiences as initial programs, Scholé Yoga Advanced Teacher training is a serious investment in yourself and your career that actually creates job opportunities, new business models, and financial freedom. To this end, our program is much longer and more challenging than most. SYATT begins at time of enrollment and takes ten to twelve months and many hundreds of hours to complete..

Your course begins with deep personal work and several significant reading assignments. After that you will enjoy a series of group sessions followed by a several month long one on one apprenticeship with Micah Scholes, our founder and senior trainer. This multi-layered and disciplined approach ensures that every single graduate of our school is able to fully realize all of their goals during the course.

For SYATT students beginning this fall, the group sessions will take place every other week starting September 7 on Saturday and Sunday from 9:00 am to 6:30 pm. The sole exception to this schedule is Thanksgiving weekend (11/30 - 12/1). Instead of meeting this weekend, we will come together the following weekend (12/7 - 12/18) so that everyone can enjoy the holiday with their family and friends.
