Firefly Yoga Company Teacher Training!

Before you read further, here are a couple of questions people often have about yoga teacher training, in general...


That's totally cool!  While the program IS designed to result in students being ABLE to teach a yoga class, there are many other great reasons for which people choose to undergo the training journey.  Maybe it shouldn't even be called "teacher training."  Often, students join based on a desire to deepen their practices, learn about yoga philosophy, connect with community, create accountability in practice, or just have a built-in mini weekend retreat for several months!


Also cool!  One of the common reflections trainees share is that they realized in training that it's not at all about "getting the poses perfect" (We never do, anyway; that's why it's called a "practice!").  We are there to grow together.  If we had it all figured out already, what would be the point of training?  :)

level one

Each year, we reevaluate and rework our training program so that we can continue to offer what we hope will be the best experience we can share that will leave you as prepared as possible to teach yoga, or that will simply be a meaningful deepening of your practice if you feel you are called to remain a student.  Regardless of the logistics and dates, our objectives are to ensure that our graduates could…

  • teach safely and mindfully based upon awareness of the unique needs of each individual student and knowledge of human anatomy and modifications.
  • create an environment in which students are free to work toward their own objectives and receive what they need from their practice when they come to the mat.
  • communicate a solid knowledge of the history of yoga, yoga philosophy, and the physical practice of yoga.
  • confidently plan classes that are grounded in learning about alignment and proper sequencing that will grow from much experience in both taking and practice-teaching classes.
  • direct a lifelong yoga journey through exploration of areas of interest, both now and in the future, so that one can continually grow as a teacher and practitioner.

We generally meet for ten weekends over the course of eight to nine months.  In addition to training weekends, there is a ten-class per month requirement, and some field trips and homework will also be expected. 

Our June-Start Training class is full!  We are considering a new set of tentative dates and pricing for our next level one program, possibly beginning Fall '24!  If you're interested, contact us to receive a preliminary application, and know that students who submit that and the deposit by July 31st will receive $100 off of tuition.

Tuition includes unlimited yoga at Firefly for the duration of training!

In order to provide a high-quality training, we limit admission to ten students.  If you’d like to be considered for our next training class, we invite you to let us know of your interest.  Your future application will also include providing forms from some references who will attest to your amazingness!  Since our class size is limited, it can help to be on the earlier side of submitting your application/deposit.

Please contact us if you’d like to learn more or receive an application!  We are happy to help if you have questions as you are discerning if our program is right for you.  We definitely encourage you to practice at the studio to see if our community and spirit resonate with you if you aren’t a regular student with us already.  

Some notes about Level One fees:

The cost of our next 2024 training will run somewhere in the ballpark of $2800.  This is just to give you an idea as you are discerning and will be determined and shared well in advance of training.
If you are accepted and take an installments route, payments will be due on dates before and during training.  

If you choose an early bird route, a discounted, paid-in-full rate will be available.
All payments are non-refundable.
The application fee (around $250, again TBD) is one of the following: (a) non-refundable if you are accepted to the program, (b) non-refundable if you decide not to train with us, OR (c) refundable if for some reason you are not accepted into the program (if, for example, we cannot take you because we reach capacity or if we decline to enter into commitment with you because your references or application suggest that our training might not be a good fit for you and us).​​

level two

This training seeks to support students who have already undertaken a level one or a 200-hour training at Firefly or elsewhere in their personal goals for deepening practice or growing in teaching.  Your individual sharing through your own application process will help direct the nature of your training experience.  We will be creating our objectives together!

We have completed our 2023-2024 Level Two Training!  If you have interest in a level two training with us in the future, let us know, and we will keep you posted on dates for the next one!

​The cost of Level Two training is $2970, $250 of which is a deposit/application fee, followed by four equal installments of $680 each, or an early bird, paid-in-full discounted rate of $2800**.  Tuition includes unlimited yoga at Firefly for the duration of training!

**Notes about Level Two fees:
The $250 application fee is non-refundable unless for some reason you are not accepted into the program (if, for example, we cannot take you because we reach capacity or if we decline to enter into commitment with you because your references or application suggest that our training might not be a good fit for you and us).​

2.  If accepted and go the $680 installments route, payments will be due on specified dates during training.
3.  If you are accepted and chose an early bird route, $2800 will be due before training begins.  If you have paid your deposit beforehand, it is applied to this amount.
