500 Hour Certificate Program

feetRYT500® Hour Certification is achieved by completing both the RYT200®  and RYT300®  Advanced upgrade programs. You can combine Immersion and Extended programs to accomplish this.  

For example, you can take the Extended 200 Hour training in Penticton from March to June, the 300 Hour Immersion Module in Alberta in August, and conclude with the BC Module in April the following year for your upgrade to 500 Hour certification.

Our RYT300®  Hour Advanced upgrade is open to all RYT200®  Hour Registered Yoga Teachers.  If you have completed your 200 Hour certification from any Registered Yoga School (RYS) with Yoga Alliance, we invite you to experience our 300 Hour Advanced program to upgrade your credential to RYT500® .  All SOYA 500 Hour Teachers are eligible to be Full Teaching Members of the International Yoga Teachers’ Association.
