200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training
Raise your hand if you are ready to take the next step in your yoga journey and your life? Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) isn't just for those interested in becoming certified instructors. This training is for anyone committed to personal growth and showing up bigger for themselves and their community.
Yoga on Chocolate is a Registered Yoga School (RYS) with the Yoga Alliance. Our 200 Hour Program takes place over a six month period and includes six weekends of dynamic learning at our Hershey facility. Weekends include instruction on anatomy and philosophy, deep inquiry about yourself and your purpose, collaborative group activities and discussion, attending various workshops, practice teaching/assisting, and of course, practicing yoga. During the weeks in between, students are asked to complete various assignments including reading, small group work, attending and observing classes, and meeting with their assigned mentors. Like our classes, our Teacher Training is challenging, but fun and will leave you feeling energized and empowered. Our mission is to create not only yoga teachers, but leaders who can share the wisdom of yoga inside and outside of the yoga studio.
Throughout this 200-hour course, trainees will learn the fundamental principles of vinyasa yoga and how to teach this popular form of yoga in a purposeful, creative and authentic way. Learning to teach the physical postures, however, is just the beginning. Here is breakdown of everything we will cover:
- In the physical realm the focus will be on anatomy, the principles of alignment, how to keep your body safe and healthy, vinyasa pacing, proper sequencing, assisting techniques and an introduction into Ayurveda (the science of healthy living).
- In the energetic/emotional realm we will explore pranayama (breath control), the chakras (energy centers), body awareness, how to read bodies, how to theme a class and speak from your authentic voice.
- In the mental realm we will explore powerful techniques to practice and teach meditation and mindfulness.
- In the deepest spiritual realm we will explore the ancient teachings of yoga philosophy and how to use this information to tap into your purpose and create a vision for carrying out that purpose. We will teach you to take your yoga off of the mat and into every aspect of your life.
There are no prerequisites for the training except for the desire to deepen your practice and a commitment to personal growth.

"I loved teacher training. I think the world would be a better place if everyone did it. The deep focus on meditation and inquiry made the training special. Also having a small group was wonderful and made the experience more intimate."
"Teacher Training was life changing. I especially loved meeting all of the other trainees. We shared such a deep connection. Pat and Brittany, different styles yet the same outcome. It was huge having that diversity. Again my toolbox is filled and will soon just be bulging at the seams I'm thrilled to be teaching and using my skill set to improve myself and others. Namaste'
"I have learned to trust my intuition, to suspend my belief systems, and that everything is possible! I find greater joy in each moment and have more compassion for all. I now know & experience the Divine with more clarity. I am filled with gratitude for Brittany and Pat & this training experience!"
