*This program meets its requirements for Yoga Alliance’s ONLINE TEACHING EXEMPTION
YTT300 ONLINE 6-MODULE FORMAT:
There are six 40-60 hour modules, with space in-between to allow time for integration and application.
Each module runs for seven days over two weeks with group study and practice: Usually T/W/Th/F for the first week and T/W/Th for the second week.
Live sessions are from 8:30 am to 2:30 pm PST.
Subject matter consists of both live and pre-recorded sessions, and we can work with students independently to help them achieve the schedule and time frame that works best.
All live sessions are recorded, archived, and available to you within 24 hours if you miss any sessions, or want to repeat sessions.
In addition to the above schedule, each module has additional “bonus” video classes & homework assignments for you to complete on your own time.
Supporting materials and resources are available to enhance your learning, both during and in-between modules.
This program resources provide more hours than the 270-hour requisite. All of which a student can repeat as often as desired. We encourage students to revisit sessions, as there is always more to learn, and repetition helps deepen the learning process.
ENROLLMENT & PARTICIPATION:
Minimum prerequisite: Completion of a YTT200. The more teaching experience you have, especially during the arc of the training, the more you will be able to integrate and apply what you are learning.
The six modules are sequential and cumulative, with each subsequent module building upon the previous. Their design with the intention of students taking them in order.
Notwithstanding the above, we are currently accepting students into our 300-hour program on a rolling basis. Upon registration, students will begin where we are in our Modular program delivery cycle and work individually with us on a plan to meet the program requirements. Approaching the YTT in this way will require more discernment and self-direction on the trainee’s part to fit all the puzzle pieces together.
Single modules are also available as yoga alliance credits
Live-streamed broadcasts by Shelley include:
ZOOM sessions where Noah interacts with students and moderates small group work. In these sessions, Noah will field common questions and address student questions, etc.
Pre-recorded classes and live-streamed classes, which are part of the training, are available to students to work with and use as additional resources.
Additional resources and videos, including past webinars and related videos.
The documents we offer to our students include a workbook, worksheets, articles, and more. Students can download and print the PDFs directly from each training day’s folder.
Due to each tailored 300-hour online training’s personalized nature and delivery, this program’s tuition ranges from $3400 to €3400 and depends on geographic location (whether you are inside or outside of the UK and Europe), special needs, and modular order. Even though it may seem counterintuitive, the online format requires additional resources on our side, so we do not offer tuition reductions.
consideration of scholarships based upon need is available.
Upon completion, students must certify they have completed all hours online. We will then audit your participation to confirm that you have watched the recordings and participated with the materials. From there, we will issue certificates of program completion.

What graduates have said about Shelley's online Teacher Training experiences:
"As a fitness educator and former nurse, I have actively taught yoga for several years. However, I wanted
to add more depth to my yoga teachings and took on an extensive search looking for the perfect
teacher. I consulted the internet, friends and local yoga mentors. My search ended when I met Shelley via Zoom.
A pandemic brings with it much uncertainty including the prospect of online yoga certification. I was
needlessly concerned as Shelley put me at ease immediately. Shelley’s extensive practitioner resume
speaks for itself, but the experience of her teacher training and mentoring offered me so much more
than I had anticipated. Honest, open hearted access, one on one mentoring, small class size,
accountability and genuine learning resulted in a deep understanding of the yoga principles and it’s
applications on and off the mat. I also found I achieved some physical relief from chronic back pain
which has been resistant to traditional methods of healing (massage, physiotherapy, etc).
Shelley takes a genuine intersect in her students. The relationship that emerges is one of authenticity,
care and kindness. Her high standard for teaching is apparent and resonates throughout.
The online training more than prepared me as I move forward in my yoga journey and in life. I would
highly recommend if you are searching, as I was, search no more."
Dawn Balic, BScN, CFES Educator
"Shelley’s 200 Hour Online Yoga Teacher Training has been a dynamic experience. As a Yoga teacher and student, the content and practical work has added a rich dimension to my teaching and personal practice.
Each module offered thematic discussion, tools, resources and practices which have helped me to expand personally and professionally. The one-on-one mentorships were a bonus as we could elaborate on specific topics, discuss ideas and get a fresh perspective for our projects.
Shelley’s warmth, knowledge, and passion is clearly evident. She is very encouraging, supportive and experienced.
I would definitely recommend taking an online training with Shelley. Her course has helped me to deepen my practice and has inspired me to further my studies."
Naomi Gourlay, Founder of CowGirl Yoga
"Stepping into a practice with Shelley has always been a transformative experience. Her sequencing, cues and her knowledge of yoga is comprehensive and unique. I still find myself in poses that I have never been in after 15 years of practice when I am under her guidance.
I have thought about participating in a Yoga Teacher Training for many years. One of the barriers to enrolling was the block of time necessary to commit to a destination training or even local trainings. Having the ability to do the training online part-time has allowed for me to complete the training with a ton of flexibility as I was able to travel on the weekends, complete my training and still have a large portion of my day open on the weekends.
If you are looking to begin the journey into yoga, I highly recommend this as the place to start. Shelley’s ability to seamlessly teach yoga on and off the mat was the exactly the experience I was looking for to deepen my practice."
