No. This Continuing Education course is Module 5 in our 300/500 yoga teacher training and is not sufficient on its own for you to be certified. It can be a fantastic supplement to the 200-hour course if you are not ready to go all in with the 300-hour course. In return, you do not have to be a yoga teacher at all to enjoy this course! It is an incredible way to go deeper into your spiritual practice and learn more about yoga.
