300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training

Training Overview

Advanced Yoga Teacher Training at tapas is a registered 300-hour Yoga Teacher Training program with Yoga Alliance, and graduates will be eligible to register at the RYT-500 hour level. Check out our profile and read reviews here.

The curriculum offers more depth, subtlety, skill, and elegance in all the elements of quality yoga instruction and yoga practice: anatomy, adjustments, sequencing, meditation, demonstration, introspection, presence, alignment, and more.

Additionally, a main thrust of this training is each trainee finding and developing her own voice as a yoga instructor. With patience, guidance, and inspiration, each instructor can harness her unique combination of traits and evolve them into something greater.

Expert to Learn


The Advanced curriculum involves extensive time for practice, composition, instruction, feedback, refinement, and more. It also draws on small group work and community projects to teach content as well as integrating the very process of learning and development itself. Applicants must have completed an 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training program at tapas or elsewhere.

Our Students

Speak for Themselves

I did my 200 hour training at Tapas and returned for my 300 hour training. Evan and Kelly always provide excellent trainings and experiences for their teacher trainers. This training provided me with a deeper sense of myself as a teacher and I know I grew and changed as a teacher during the process. The community that was created and the collective knowledge that was shared was invaluable during the training.

500hr RYT

This training was very thorough and informative and was led by great people who have grown an exceptional yoga community in Rock Island. The texts used were extensive, but every one of the reading assignments were relevent. I had read a lot of teaching literature and had a good amount of teaching experience prior to the training and wasn’t quite sure if it would be worth the time commitment. It was very much worth every minute. I looked forward to each session and learned something useful each time. To be involved in Tapas Yoga Shala and see two experienced and dedicated teachers in action has added so much to the way I approach teaching yoga. Do this training!

Evan and Kelly are amazing! Their program is well organized and they both have so much knowledge to share with the yoga community. They also bring people who specialize in other areas of yoga to share their knowledge, which really adds to the overall experience. I loved my experience at Tapas. I highly recommend their YTT program!

Evan & Kelly at Tapas provide a learning environment that is both supportive and challenging, I am so grateful to have taken my 200 hour with them. The small class size creates a tight-knit community between the students and instructors, and really allows each student to flourish. Evan & Kelly go beyond teaching out of the books- they take lessons and have students apply them to real practice, teaching classmates, and public classes. After completing this course, my personal practice transformed and I was confident to begin teaching classes- which was my goal in taking the course.
