LIVE YOUR PRACTICE…

Jennifer Prugh’s JOY Of Yoga 300 Hour program is for those who have completed a YA-certified 200 Hour program and want to concentrate their studies, work with like-minded colleagues, have the support of locally, nationally and internationally reputed mentors, and deepen their own personal and professional practice. We address the primary elements of excellent yoga teaching, from developing a clear teaching voice, guiding mindfulness practices, use of effective hands on assists, intelligent sequencing and creating an classroom environment where transformation can happen.

The JOY 300 Hour takes an evidence-based approach to yoga,  providing a supportive, rigorous and inspirational environment in which you can continue to integrate what you are learning. The JOY 300 provides a non-dogmatic and well-rounded curriculum where you can dive deeply into your own applied investigation of this practice.

This training allows you to shape your own curriculum and remain in your life at the same time by being able to work at a pace that suits your schedule and resources. There are many ways to obtain three hundred hours, from several day intensives at Breathe Together, to workshops by internationally recognized teachers, to local and international retreats. In other words, largely, you can customize your 300 Hour experience.

How the JOY of Yoga 300 Hour Program Works:

The JOY 300 Hour program accepts applications year-round. You must have a 200 Hour certification in order to apply or be in the process of obtaining your JOY of Yoga certification with Jennifer Prugh’s approval.

Intensives

Jennifer’s 120 Hour Teaching Intensive is a required course offered in the spring for roughly one weekend per month.

JOY’s additional intensives support you to develop expertise in your interests within the yoga practice. JOY of Yoga offers intensives in Restorative Yoga, Yoga for Trauma Recovery, Applied Anatomy, Vinyasa, Cancer Survivorship,  Ayurveda and Yoga, Assisting, Sanskrit, Breath and Meditation, and Yoga for Children.

While some intensives are just one weekend (12 hours), others require one weekend a month for six months of study (100 hours). This way you can choose where you’d like to specialize and progress through your training at your own pace.

Workshops

Weekend workshops are usually 3-5 hours and offer the opportunity to continue to study, refine, and deepen your own practice. These hours are designated as elective credits (sound healing immersions don’t count toward hours).

Retreats

Retreats provide the opportunity to live your yoga practice in a culture that has been living the practice for centuries, like India, Nepal or Bali, offering the opportunity to experience how the yoga practice is lived in the locations where it was conceived. These retreats offer credit toward your certification, as well as life experience. You will be given assignments related to the history and culture of the area as it applies to yoga. You will be assisting other students or contribute to teaching depending upon your experience. Attending retreats is not necessary in order to participate in this program.

Investment

We require $500 non-refundable administrative fee due upon registration.  This fee covers the cost of tracking student progress.  Students will receive an email once a quarter detailing their hours achieved toward the 300 Hour certification.

Note that each workshop, intensive, and retreat is a separate and additional cost as the student progresses through the program.
