Advance your teaching and deepen your personal yoga practice. Our Yoga Alliance 300-hour yoga teacher training (commonly referred to as 500-hour training) is designed to strengthen your current yoga teaching and launch you into the next chapter of your yoga inquiry and career.


The 300-hour advanced yoga teacher training builds upon the 200-hour certification from Nexus Institute, enabling you to lead more advanced principles and techniques of yoga at the 500-hour level. You will graduate fully prepared and authorized to lead workshops, yoga teacher trainings, and continuing education programs in conjunction with the Yoga Alliance.  

The curriculum that we follow will enhance and broaden your understanding of the fundamental concepts that you learned at the 200-hour level. We draw inspiration from modern yoga scholarship and from the lived experience of our training participants. We believe that each group comes together to learn from one another and to take our place in evolving yoga for our time and circumstances. As such, our 300-hour training places more emphasis on individual expression and creativity. Nexus graduates are uniquely qualified to facilitate robust learning experiences through advanced teaching practices, workshops, retreats, and trainings.

Because of the unique perspective of each participant, our curriculum continues to evolve in service to our current global community. Our school, and the world, is enriched by the dedicated yoga explorers who we have the honor of welcoming back to Nexus Institute.
