Our Promise
Our promise is to deliver personalized coaching, effective and detailed curriculum and hands-on training that will leave you empowered as a teacher, leader and human being. If you do the work, you will experience breakthroughs in your teaching and in your life.

The 300 hour Teacher Training will go deep into the process of teaching and leading as your natural self-expression. You will experience your natural self-expression as Leader in the classroom and in the world. You will be inspired to boldly step into action as Leader and Teacher and as a result of your own transformation, impact others’ lives. Through rigorous work, your life will be sharpened, your way of being will change, and you will learn how powerful you are. You will graduate from the Big Fish Power Yoga 300 Hour Teacher Training and be eligible for your RYT-500 through Yoga Alliance.

Our 300 hour training is a combined collaboration between the neighboring studio communities of Big Fish Power Yoga in Jacksonville, FL, and Charleston Power Yoga in Charleston, SC.

With your 200 hour training complete, this 300 hour training is most effective and of greatest impact when recognizing that your success only comes from something much bigger. WE.
