What is Modular Program?
Modular programs allow yoga students to pursue and complete their chosen course with much flexibility.

In our experience, an RYT200 certified teachers gets busy with teaching or with other commitments like work, kids etc and is unable to dedicate 3-5 months of structured class timings to pursue higher education. Yogaarohan precisely offers opportunities enabling your next step.

All components of the RYT300 program will be offered almost all through the year repeatedly hence enabling students to complete required elements at one time or the other within a 9-month period.

For example: RYT300 students are required to complete 100 hours of Astanga Vinyasa for the course. Astanga is available all through the year at the Indiranagar Upstairs studio and any student can choose from a 6:00-7:30 am or a7:30-9:00 a.m batch to complete these required hours.

So on and so forth for all components of the course. Students needs to choose the best time they are available and choose from what is being offered at our shala and slowly accrue credits towards completing the RYT300.

Ideally not. Unless you have been already practicing and teaching yoga for many many years but need the certification due to certain job specific needs in certain countries that require such mandatory certification. In which case you may meet the TTC Counselor to present your case as an acceptable exception.

No. RYT200 (or its equivalent) is a must before RYT300.

No. RYT 300 is additional 300 hours after RYT200.

RYT200 plus RYT300 add up to RYT500 certification. But please make sure your RYT200 is also from a Yoga Alliance registered Yoga School.

Do I need to do RYT200 and RYT300 separately to become a good teacher?

You can start your yoga teaching experience right after the RYT200 program. You can become a very good teacher with just that qualification. RYT300 is more to help you advance as a yogi than to make you a “more qualified” yoga teacher.

I have completed RYT200 but do not have any teaching experience. Can I still sign up for RYT300?

RYT300 is more about deepening what you already know and what you may further need with respect to personal sadhana, theory, philosophy, teaching methodology. If your purpose to enrol for the program is purely for personal growth, then please do register.

I am 50+ years old. Can I still do RYT300?

Yes. Some asanas may be difficult only if you have not been regular about your personal sadhana. RYT300 is more about deepening what you already know what you may further need with respect to theory, philosophy, teaching methodology.

Make Yoga part of Life

The principles laid out in Patanjali’s yoga sutras dating back to 500 B.C. are still very relevant today, even in our modern information world. Yoga has evolved a lot from the days of Patanjali; it has taken different forms to meet the varying needs of practitioners all along its journey. Yoga continues to accept all changes, like the ocean accepts the river, absorbs, assimilates and grows. (A distinctive feature of sanaatan dharma of India)
