View Full Version : Yoga Teacher Training/Massage Therapy
06-17-2006, 10:38 PM
I am hoping over the next couple of years to become certified in massage therapy and get at least a 200 hour yoga teacher training.
I am looking for info on best places to get trained. Is anyone in either of these fields and could recommend an institute or school?
If you could please list where, how much $ & time....
Thanks so much!!

Well I could recommend some good schools here in San Diego - IPSB is one of them, but I'm sure there are a few where you are. I found www.mtim.org
I've been practicing massage since 96' and I thoroughly enjoy it. It is a wonderfully exciting profession with always something new to learn.

I am both a massage & Yoga Therapist (500). I went to some great schools here in Ohio however, I am sure that there must be something much closer to you, lol! ;)
I would make sure to check the schools reputation and see what thier curic. is like. As far as yoga, what branch of yoga are you interested in? Once I know, I might be able to direct you a little better. There are schools for specific styles of yoga!

I'm a massage therapist. I'm not sure what schools they would have in your area, but I've heard Blue Cliff is good. There are only two schools here so I checked out both to see what each offered. The school I went to had day classes that lasted about eight months, night classes that lasted about a year and a half, and now they have a night and one weekend a month that is for two years. It really depends on how many hours your state requires. It cost $10,000 not including supplies (table, chair, sheets, oil, etc.). You can see if they offer a scholarship. We had several students that went through a workforce agency and their tuition was paid for. One of the hospitals here is now teaching it and they are trying to make it a two year degree.

I don't know much about yoga, but is it more for the mind than the body?

I teach yoga and am also a Reiki practitioner. If you want to find a training program in your area, you can check www.yogaalliance.com for starters and look under "registered schools." I have been doing yoga for over 10 years and just recently began officially teaching so I am starting a 200 hour program myself in the fall.
From my own personal experience, I've seen 200 hour programs anywhere from $1300 to $3000 here in Minnesota so you'll have to check with each individual school.
