"The longest journey of any person is the journey inward."

500 Hour Yoga Teacher Training

Karen Weber, 500hrtt


This Yoga Alliance Certified 500 hour Yoga Teacher Training program is advanced training for an already 200 hour trained teacher. It steeps the teacher in personal experience by encouraging a re-commitment to their daily practice and by opening the doors of various sacred teachings to reveal greater understanding than before.


This Yoga teacher course in Batavia, IL, is taught in 3 Modules comprised of related teachings and tools, grouped together in support of Right Living – for your daily physical, mental and spiritual health and fulfillment, Shakti Sadhana – for your personal advancement and scope of practice and Advanced Teaching Skills – for a refinement and expansion of your teaching tools and personal capacity.  


Wise Yoga Teachers recognize that we will always be students. The breadth and depth of this most sacred practice and its teachings continually reveal new layers to the practitioner. This keeps our interest high and our desire strong. As a qualified yoga teacher, it is our duty to stay committed to our own practice. Our nourishment and inner fulfillment flow over into our lives and positively affects our students. We then teach from a place of experience and truth as opposed to intellectual knowledge. The tools and techniques of this training polish your inner diamond and unveil your distinct contribution that only your light can manifest.

Taking the Fox Valley's 500 hr Yoga Teacher Training requires that you have already completed a 200 hr Yoga Teacher Training Program and have at least 1 year of teaching experience. Due to the variances in program content, those who have not taken their 200 hr YTT with us, may need to take an additional 15 hr Teacher Training Foundational Class*.

This requirement is meant to serve you so that you do not feel behind on concepts or techniques that you may not have received through your prior training. You may request a review of your teacher training program or test out of the necessity of this prerequisite.
