Training Overview

The BYCP 200 Hour YTT program is credentialed to the new 2023 YA Elevated Standards. These standards have created a core curriculum with four Educational Categories: Techniques, Training, Practice; Anatomy and Physiology; Yoga Humanities; and Professional Essentials. BYCP Lead Teachers and Trainers will share and encourage detailed discussion of the Eight Limbs of Yoga, Hatha yoga, the history of yoga, anatomy, sequencing various class styles (hatha, vinyasa, yin, restorative, meditations et al.), professional development and ethics within these categories. Such yogic texts as The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, The Bhagavad Gita and Hatha Yoga Pradipika will also support the core curriculum. The BYC facility easily allows for comfortable training space, technological support, and break out rooms for small group discussions and practice asana teachings. Teacher:Trainee ratio is 1:15. Students will be expected to follow our Codes of Conduct, respect the schedule and deadlines, and exhibit the values we abide by at the studio. In turn, Students will receive a robust, well-planned, and intelligently delivered training that BYCP hopes will inspire them to continue learning, practicing, sharing and growing as yogis and loving individuals.
