300 Hour Training

Living Practice

The 300 hour teacher training program is designed as a flexible program that can be completed in as little as 14 months or as long as three years.

2022 session begins February 1!

Yoga as a living practice

This immersion provides multi-dimensional study of the practices of yoga. In 2022 and 2023, trainees will have the option to complete it as a fully virtual training or a hybrid virtual/in-person training.

  • Explore yoga as a living practice.
  • Join a global community of committed practitioners to build connection.
  • Learn through a mix of pre-recorded (on demand) training content alongside live discussion sessions,
    offerings from incredible guest teachers, and live practices.
  • Establish your practice as the guide for sharing with others.

We will begin with a virtual curriculum designed to establish a foundation for your teaching to emanate from your own depth of studentship and lived experience with yoga.

This program is designed to support you in finding your own path as a student and from there, as a teacher. The full 300-hour program is registered with Yoga Alliance. Upon successful completion of the program, you’ll receive a 300-hour certificate. You’ll have the option to register with Yoga Alliance at the 500-hour level by submitting your prior 200-hour certificate and the 300-hour certificate from the Stone Yoga School.


The curriculum is divided into 6 components:

Training core
35 hours

Peer study groups, live virtual practices and live discussions

Core curriculum
Book reflections and self-study (svadhyaya)
Service project
Teaching and assisting requirement (30 hours)
Choose your electives (130 hours or more). New courses are added as they are confirmed.


Is this program eligible for Yoga Alliance certification?

Students who complete the 300-hour program will receive a teacher training certificate from Janet Stone Yoga that meets Yoga Alliance standards.

If you completed a 200 hour training from another Yoga Alliance certified school, you will be able to submit both your 200 hour and your 300 hour certificate to Yoga Alliance, should you choose to, for a full 500 hour recognition from them.

What are the prerequisites?

Prerequisites for the 300 hour program include completion of Janet Stone Yoga’s 200-hour Teacher Training OR completion of a 200-hour Yoga Alliance registered program.

What are the requirements to complete the program?

See the detailed content above for full details regarding the core requirements and elective options. Generally, the core curriculum includes 135 hours of virtual courses + 35 hours of synchronous learning, which includes a range of live virtual discussion sessions, practices, and peer group assignments.

Beyond that, you can choose from in-person and virtual courses totaling 130 or more hours.

When are the live virtual sessions offered and how long do I have access?

Live sessions include any virtual practices, live discussions and guest teachers for the training program, and discussion sessions for the specific virtual courses offered. We require everyone to attend at least 25 live sessions. While you'll have access to recordings of all of the sessions offered, only live attendance in real time counts for those 25 sessions.

You'll have access to Janet's virtual membership upon enrollment and for 18 months from the course start date. Live practices are typically offered at: 9 am pacific on Saturdays, 6:15 pm pacific on Mondays, 5 pm pacific on Tuesdays and 8:30 am pacific on Thursdays. You do not need to be able to make all of these times, but it's good if at least one of them aligns with your awake and free time schedule.

Live sessions for the teacher training and individual virtual courses are usually offered at 10 am pacific or 3 pm/3:30 pm pacific during the work week. We try to schedule these so that some work for Europe/Africa timezones and others work for Asia/Australia/New Zealand timezones.

How do the peer groups work?

Right after the official training start date, we'll gather some information from each person in the training to help us match folks up with their group. We ask about your interests, work-style preferences (e.g., do you prefer a steady schedule or to go with the flow), and location.

From there, we'll match you with a group of ~4 others and a mentor who will support you through the program.

I'm already teaching, can I count my regular classes toward the teaching requirement?

Yes, of course!

How long will it take until I'm certified?

It will take a minimum of 12 months to complete your 300 hour certification, and you have up to 3 years to finish.

Who do I contact with questions?

Please email with all other questions.
