500HR Course Breakdown: 
(after completion of accredited 200-hour RYT program) 


The first and most important part of your 500-hour training! Participants will be required to apprentice a 200-hour training. The intentions for the apprenticeship are:

For the teacher to get "on the other side" of participation and understand the course curriculum and experience it from the eye of an observer, vs. participant. This gives the teacher an entirely new perspective of teaching. Apprentices often report that they discover many blind spots of their own, seeing their habits and learning curves in other, newer teachers.
To learn how to coach and train teachers.
To understand the Business of Yoga.
To become mentors, assistants and leaders of a high-performance team.
To have an opportunity and a platform for creation and execution of their own "specialty topics"
To receive live feedback and leadership skills from educated and experienced senior teachers.
To create and generate new ideas for future programming.

Participants are required to attend either Baptiste Art of Assisting and Baptiste Art of True North Alignment (location optional) OR co-facilitation of BHTTS Assisting Module and Technical Alignment Module. In addition, 25 hours of live teaching and 25 hours of live assisting is required. 24 of these hours, (24 assisting and 24 teaching) can be completed offsite (at other studios/venues) with documentation (teaching/assisting log will be provided and require studio director signature.) A minimum of one hour teaching and one hour assisting must be completed on-site, with mentorship, at Indigo Yoga.


In this phase, participants will be required to create and execute a program, event, workshop or a training module to be delivered within the timeframe of the training or shortly thereafter. With the help of the Core Team Facilitators, participants will learn how to plan for, research for, market and deliver a powerful program. In addition, a 5000-word research paper on a chosen specialty topic is required and due no less than 6-months after live program completion. And finally, 500-hour participants will be required to accumulate 25 hours in elective credits. Electives will range in price and CEU credits.
