YTT Frequently Asked Questions

Our signature “Hot Power Flow”  class is heated to 90 degrees to promote detoxification and healing in the body. A PPY class is power vinyasa, which means a flow of poses that links breath to movement through dynamic and challenging sequences designed to build strength, increase stamina, and lengthen and tone the body.  

Tuition costs range from $2500.00-$3000.00.

Program includes a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Certification through Yoga Alliance and the ability to register as a 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher upon graduation, unlimited PPY classes during the training ($714 value), the comprehensive PPY Power Yoga Teacher Training Manual, and an amazing new family to cherish for life (invaluable)!

Yes! PPY offers a 3-month installment autopayment plan with a $200 administration fee.

Our next program is a mix of in studio, virtual, and self-directed learning, but is not currently scheduled at this time. Check back soon!

We recommend that aspiring teachers develop their own regular yoga practice before beginning our YTT program; however, we consider all applicants and can discuss this on a case by case basis. Our training is open to all levels and all bodies.

Studio Founder, Sherry Lankford is leading our upcoming training. Sherry is a 200 hour Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (E-200 RYT) with Yoga Alliance, and is also a Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider (YACEP). Currently, she is working toward obtaining the designation of 500 hour Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (E-500 RYT) and has over 13 years of teaching experience and 18 years of practice. Lead PPY Instructor, Emily McInnis, and other PPY Yoga Teacher Training graduates will also assist in this upcoming training.

We expect that all trainees commit to practice teaching on their own in addition to the scheduled training sessions. There will be homework, reading assignments, journal assignments, and writing assignments. The certification also requires the attendance of a minimum number of PPY Power classes during the training.

No! The art of teaching yoga is more than the physical practice of yoga. You will practice yoga during your journey, but many hours of the training are spent in a traditional academic classroom environment with a lecture, reading and writing requirements, and homework.

Since this training will be a hybrid of live and self-directed learning, there is more flexibility than ever before to make up missed sessions.

Currently, our program is designed for ages 18 and up.

PPY is recognized by Yoga Alliance as meeting their standards for a Registered Yoga School. With the PPY Yoga Teaching Certificate, you will be eligible to join Yoga Alliance as a 200 Hour Registered Yoga Teacher. Many studios and facilities require teachers to hold a 200 hour Teaching Certificate prior to employment. 

While adhering to the current standards required by Yoga Alliance, the PPY 200-hour training is based on our signature style, so you will learn how to safely teach Power Vinyasa. But, you will also receive an overview on teaching other styles like beginners, seniors, prenatal, restorative, and yin. This training also provides a safe space for self-growth, inner work, and discovery.

 All PPY teachers are trained in our signature power yoga methodology, which is designed to offer safe, accessible, well-balanced, and purposeful classes. Graduating from PPY’s teacher training does not guarantee a teaching position, but is required to be considered.

The PPY community provides a welcoming and encouraging space for yogis to take their yoga practice to new levels, and an inspiring space for new yogis to learn how powerful their bodies can be. The PPY culture seeks to cultivate an inclusive and safe space for all yogis of all levels.

This hybrid training will be PPY’s 5th 200 hour yoga teacher training, so our program leaders have over 1000 hours of leading and mentoring new yoga teachers. Many teachers graduating from PPY’s program have successfully found immediate work as a yoga teacher following graduation, and some have even become leaders in our teacher training program.

This hybrid training will include live sessions, and in order to keep our community safe during the current Covid-19 pandemic, we are offering limited spots.
