YOU ARE READY NOW
Scholé is part of a real living lineage of yoga that goes back more than 5,000 years. From this foundation, we share the practice and study of classical Raja and Vipassana meditation, as well as Ashtanga Vinyasa and its evolution over time into the various schools of Hot Yoga, Power Yoga, and Yin Yoga. We also emphasize and explore a contemporary understanding of human anatomy and physiology, as well as aspects of strength training, pilates, dance, martial arts and other systems of movement. Ultimately, we show you how to combine all of these teachings into the practice of Scholé, the organic outgrowth and next step in the yoga tradition.
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 SYTT 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.
DEEP PERSONAL PROGRESSION
You will experience dramatic personal growth as a result of attending this course, and will also gain the ability to lead effective and engaging yoga classes in a variety of styles and formats. Previous graduates also report experiencing incredible weight loss, significant increases in strength, flexibility, and mental cognition, as well as dramatic positive shifts in their relationship with themselves and others.
NOT JUST FOR TEACHERS
When you study something that you plan to share in some way, you absorb it on a much deeper level. In each session, we will practice yoga together, participate in discourses on yoga philosophy and various teaching methodologies, as well as enjoy group exercises and practical teaching. Our interactive and refined educational methods will immerse you in the practice of yoga in a way that builds tremendous personal strength and self-confidence. You will develop and refine real-world skills such as public speaking, giving and receiving feedback, teamwork, and using clear and straightforward directions. At the end of the course, you will have a stronger, more flexible body and a calmer, clearer mind, as well as the skill set and resources to achieve every goal and objective.

We recommend that you purchase digital copies of all course textbooks through the Apple iBooks store. These digital editions are not only less expensive than paper copies, but they are also better for the environment as well as your learning experience due to the ability to search, index, and notate electronically.
Unlike most yoga teacher training programs that crank out inexperienced teachers in “two hundred hours or less”, Scholé Yoga Teacher training is a serious investment in yourself that actually pays off. To this end, our program is much longer and more challenging than most. Your training begins at time of enrollment and takes six 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 month long one on one apprenticeship with a senior Scholé Yoga Certified Teacher. This multi-layered and disciplined approach ensures that every single graduate of our school is ready to lead day one.
For the Fall semester, group sessions take place every other weekend starting September 7 and are held 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.
CERTIFICATIONS AND OPPORTUNITIES
Upon completion of the course, you will become a “Level Two 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 extraordinarily 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 fantastic new opportunities worldwide.
TUITION AND BENEFITS
SYTT course tuition is $1895 and includes your course manual, a four-month unlimited membership at Scholé Yoga, and exclusive deals on everything from Scholé apparel to workshops and private lessons. An early enrollment discount of $300 is available for all students who complete the enrollment process three weeks or more prior to the start of the group sessions!
