Program Breakdown:
In order to graduate you must complete 300 hours of study. We have broken these down into our Mandatory Core Curriculum & Electives. 270 hours must be obtained in the presence of one of our teachers. These are considered contact hours and are marked in purple. Contact hours will be acquired through a combination of weekend immersions, courses, workshops, mentorship sessions and classes. 30 hours must be accumulated on your own (non-contact hours). Non-contact hours will accumulate through home practices, readings and assignments. 

Mandatory Core Curriculum (48 contact hours / 30+ non-contact hours)
- 48 hours in asana class at Kali Yuga Yoga
As many a yoga student knows, a consistent asana practice under the tutelage of an instructor and surrounded by a community of peers is the key to creating an immersive learning environment. The ritual class setting is the perfect starting point to spark ideas and see concepts and philosophies put into action.  
- 25+ hours of home practices
A yoga practice is so much more than just the poses. We seek to make the yogic lifestyle whole again by incorporating many of these observances including, but not limited to, home practices in pranayama, meditation and mantra. We also encourage incorporating other forms of exercise, an Ayurvedic diet, community service and plenty of relaxation techniques.  

Electives (216 contact hours):
This includes your unique mix of the following:
- Weekend Immersions (10+ hours each)
These 2-3 day events will take a deep dive into the many different facets of yoga and the practice. Students will take away an abundance of information, resources and tools to implement in both their yoga classes and daily life.
- Workshops (2+ hours each) 
Every 2-3 hour event will showcase a specific technique or offer a different viewpoint on a specific aspect of yoga. This focused experience which concentrates on one singular aspect of yoga is meant to awaken and inspire students into a new way of thinking and experiencing the practice.     
- Courses (6+ hours each)
Our 6-8 week courses are built around the seasonal themes of the studio as a way to enhance our exploration of these topics and come together as a community. In these weekly gatherings there will be outside readings, assignments and engagement within the group to foster a deeper understanding and implementation of yoga concepts both on and off the mat. 
- Mentorship sessions (1+ hours each)
One-on-one meetings with your Mentor further tailor the training to your individual needs. You will start with an initial Ayurvedic Consultation to learn more about your Prakriti and activities that will help keep you balanced throughout the training. Later, mentorship sessions will help you expand your knowledge of the physical practice, turn over philosophical questions raised through your training and even assist with your yoga business plan. Your mentors will be there to support your journey and hold you accountable for your intentions.
