The modular structure of NETA’s Yoga Teacher Trainer Program allows students to complete the requisite certification workshops at their own pace and at multiple locations. Students may complete each of the 2-day and 1-day courses as stand-alone continuing education workshops and specialty certifications, or as a component of the full curriculum leading to the 200-Hour Registered Yoga Teacher designation.
Each of the 1- and 2-day specialty certifications is valid for two years from the date of issue. Students that choose to take any of the workshops as stand-alone specialty certifications with no intent to pursue the 200 hour teach designation must renew their specialty certifications every two years to keep them valid. To renew a yoga specialty certification, the certificant must complete ten (10) continuing education credits (CECs) between the date of issue and the designated expiration date. Six (6) of the 10 CECs must be obtained from NETA workshops or NETA home study courses purchased directly from NETA. However, students that intend to complete the entire 200 Hour Program can complete the Continuing Education Waiver Agreement and submit the required deposit of $99. By completing this form, paying the deposit, and showing intent to complete the entire program, continuing education requirements will be waived for all 1- and 2-day yoga specialty certifications. The $99 deposit will be credited toward the Advanced Certification for Yoga Teachers workshop registration fee.
The 3-day Advanced Certification for Yoga Teachers is an in-person workshop offered only at NETA Fit Fest events. As a culminating experience, candidates may only attend the Advanced Yoga Certification workshop following completion of all five 2-day and all five 1-day workshops, no exceptions. Upon completion of the Advanced Yoga workshop and exam, candidates are awarded the NETA Yoga Teacher Certification.
The NETA-Certified Yoga Teacher credential is the one and only certification for the 200-hour program that will be renewable and have continuing education requirements. The Yoga Teacher Certification is valid for two years from the date of issue. To renew the Yoga Teacher Certification, the certificant must complete twenty (20) continuing education credits (CECs) between the date of issue and the designated expiration date. Six (6) of the 20 CECs must be obtained from NETA workshops or NETA home study courses purchased directly from NETA. Recertification exemptions are not granted for the NETA-Certified Yoga Teacher credential.
