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.
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:
Enrollment is open for the cohort beginning in February 2023.
Enrollment fees include the training core and virtual courses only. Electives are an additional cost. Virtual courses range from $288-$388 for early enrollment. Residential immersions range from $2500-$4500 depending on location and room type.
We have a limited number of partial scholarships available for the enrollment fees. Please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request this option.

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.
Are the electives included?
Electives are not included in the enrollment fees or the core curriculum. You can choose your own electives to fulfill the 130 required hours of electives and you'll enroll and pay for those separately.
Who do I contact with questions?
Please email email@example.com with all other questions.
This training was so far beyond my expectations. I wasn't sure if the online format would provide me with enough depth or understanding and I was surprised to find out that this method of learning was so much more conducive for my lifestyle. All of the different guests and mentors that contributed brought so much the experience. Janet's wisdom and ways of conveying information and concepts in unmatched. This training brought me so much beyond asana, beyond the surface of teaching. It is rich and comprehensive. Deep and inspiring. Transformative. I am so very grateful for this school and this training. OM OM OM
Janet and her team’s capacity to hold space for students during an incredibly challenging 2 years (pandemic and social injustice) was absolutely amazing. They led flexible programming, listened and provided supportive feedback during zoom meetups. Janet’s wisdom and embodiment of this practice is what one seeks in a mentor or guide. The investment in this education provides invaluable tools to live a joyful and well-lived life.
This training was an amazing experience and incredibly fulfilling in all aspects. Each course is designed so that one can fully experience the lessons via video, books and live lectures. Janet and her team are accessible and incredibly accommodating. They are professional and hold space for each individual. I will be taking more courses in the future and am honored to be a graduate of this program.
Janet's training was life-changing. I'm in awe every time I train with her and her team with the level of education and heartfelt intention with every gathering. I can't recommend training with Janet enough!
Janet and team are simply THE best. Thoughtful and professional. The highest quality delivery of content, practice & integration. I choose to continue to learn from Janet for the rest of my life. And will forever recommend her school & teachings.
