The 50-Hour Yoga Teacher Training curriculum runs parallel to the 200-Hour course, and introduces the question, "What is Yoga?" This inquiry establishes the foundation for the next 8 days and 7 nights, while we explore Hatha Yoga postures, as well as introduce Sanskrit terms for each asana, without the expectation that you have a high degree of proficiency in their use.
Students are exposed to a foundational understanding of the human organism according to Western science and Ayurveda, to create a bridge between Eastern and Western ideologies and help students begin making connections for themselves.

What is 50 hour yoga teacher training?
The 50 hour yoga teacher training program offered by YogaMea School further refines and distills the essence of the 200 hour yoga teacher training program for students unable to stay away from home for longer periods of time. It is offered over 8 days and 7 nights in Italy and India and is a residential program, immersing the students in a yogic way of life. The curriculum follows the 200-hour training and is offered in four phases. Assignments are given during Phase I of the program, so it is recommended to start here. Students must complete all four phases to comply with Yoga Alliance standards and be eligible to register for RYT 200.

Is the 50 hour yoga teacher training a certification course?
Yes. Students receive a YogaMea School certification after completing the 50 hour yoga teacher training course. However, students will become eligible to register for the Yoga Alliance RYT 200 only after completing all four phases of 50 hour training for a total of 200 hours.
Is this course valuable for the YACEP?
The 50 hour certificate is a vital first step in your journey. However, the YACEP designation is only available to an E-RYT registrant, which means you would have to complete the 500 hour course (or one 200-hour followed by one 300-hour course) and teach for a minimum of four years.
After my first 50 hour yoga teacher training, in order to complete the 200 Hour, can I continue my education with another school?
No. According to the Yoga Alliance standards, all training hours must come from the same school and multiple trainings from different schools cannot be combined to meet the 200-hour requirement. In order to obtain your 200 Hour yoga teacher training certificate, you must complete all four 50-Hour phases with YogaMea School.
