Tuition & Expenses

The International Yoga Studies teacher training is a mentored, “out-of-walls” type of education similar to the doctoral programs in schools like Oxford. This one-on-one guidance style offers the students that important ancient yoga teaching style of connected direction, one person to advise and assist. This style of program also offers students the freedom to pursue and tailor their studies to their own interests (within the structure of the basic program).

IYS has direct contact with its students through the "mentoring" process and occasional Intensives. Although students study with a variety of teachers to complete their program, they are typically 'mentored' by one teacher who assists them in their direction and choices. This mentor/teacher is assigned after the Induction Process, which takes place after acceptance into the program. IYS does not offer all of the workshops that students take to complete their teacher training programs. Each program is designed and implemented by the student who selects where, when and how they want to focus their study.

Students meet with their mentors and use the phone and email to stay in communication about their questions, progress, direction, and guidance. 
The IYS program offers the students a way to learn from the best teachers in the world and to select those teachers because the required classes can be taken anywhere the teaching is excellent. 
Typically the full program takes 4 years to complete.
