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.


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 twenty-six yoga teacher trainings and has over eight thousand hours of teaching experience. Shannon McPhee and Amanda Crittenden are lead trainers of Scholé Yoga Teacher Training. Both Shannon and Amanda 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.

Our high standard of 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. All of the course textbooks are also digital and your homework will be assigned and turned in using top-shelf educational software.


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.


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.

The Spring 2019 semester begins on March 2nd and ends on May 19th. During the semester, we meet every other weekend as a class and complete a variety of fun and exciting homework assignments during each week. The sole exception to this schedule is the last training weekend, which takes place on May 18th and 19th to ensure that those who have travel planned for Memorial Day weekend are free to do so.

During each training weekend, we meet as a class from 9:00 am to 6:30 pm on both Saturday and Sunday. Students who have religious obligations, pre-planned vacations, or other commitments during training hours can make up missed time in a variety of fun and unique ways.

During each session, we practice, study, and share with each other in a variety of revolutionary and innovative ways. In addition to the group sessions, each student will be assigned a variety of dynamic and engaging homework assignments to complete during the week according to their schedule. Every student also has the opportunity to meet privately with a member of the Scholé Yoga University faculty. This unique and intimate opportunity for personal connection ensures that each student has the support they need to complete the training successfully.
