What is the difference between your 200 & 300 programs?
Our foundational 200 hour yoga teacher training is a wonderful introduction to the rich history of  yoga.  You will learn why the ancient teachings are relevant today and how to apply them to your everyday life and in teaching others.  Teaching techniques, study of energetic systems (chakras and doshas), study of anatomy that is most relevant for a yoga teacher to know are hallmarks of our 200 hour training.
Our 300 hour yoga teacher training retreats are divided into three 100 hour modules. Each designed to bring you much deeper into your study of yoga, both in teaching and in personal lifestyle practice. Advance your understaning, personal practice, and teaching technique with these three deeper dives into yoga.
Can I take the modules in any order?
Yes! Marianne specifically design this advanced training to be extremely flexible. Each module stands on its own.  The advanced modular program is designed to fit the needs and interests – in the time allotted to each retreat, the period of study in preparation, the application of each module into your personal practice and teaching, and the approach to each of the distinctive modules.
Can I attend the advanced training modules if my 200 hour training is from another school?
Yes you can! If you did not attend Marianne Wells Yoga School for your 200 hour YTT,  we request that you speak to Marianne in advance of registration. We want to confirm that your prior school 200 hour training  taught yoga philosophy and applied anatomy, and created a sequence and taught it as part of your prior curriculum guidelines. If your prior training did not cover these topics in depth, it may simply mean that you may need to work a bit more in preparation for these advanced modules.
Can I take one of your modules for 100 hours credit?
Yes. At the end of each module you will receive a 100 hour certificate from Marianne Wells Yoga school. However know that there is no such thing under the Yoga Alliance guidelines as a 400-RYT. The Yoga Alliance has “200-RYT” and “300-RYT” and + “500 E-RYT” That is all. So if you take just one module you can use those hours as continuing education credits.
What else, other than take your modules, is required to complete my 300?
For each module there are pre attendance assignments. They are not complicated. They are designed to help shift your mind into the modules teachings. There is nothing you need to do after you take a modular training retreat.
What kind of support do I have before and after the training modules?
Each training forms a kula of like-minded people from around the world. We use Facebook and Insta gram, and LinkedIn to stay connected, both in personal and professional settings.  Many students meet through our training,  and forge personal and business relationships. We also offer lifelong professional mentoring to our students.  With students in over 60 countries around the world, it is getting easier each year to meet a teacher that attended Marianne Wells Yoga School.  It’s a beautiful thing!
How much time do I have to complete the three modules to earn my 300?
Five years is recommended. The best thing you can do for yourself is to commit with dedication to this process. Ideally, if you could take one module each year, and process of the teachings from that module, you will have absorbed and implement the teachings into your life.

“Stop reading now and just go register for this training!!! The way Marianne and Ron teach is incredible. Postures that I never could get into in my life, somehow magically with Marianne’s words, there I was, in postures, comfortable, breathing, with or without props. The way they SEE the individual and exactly what the practitioner needs in every moment amazed me. I am forever hooked on Really Real Yoga®.”

I did not come here to be a teacher, although now I kind of want to teach, I came here for a life enriching experience. I will bring so much of what I learned into my life. Thank you from the bottom of my very grateful heart!”
