How Much Should You Be Paying for a 200 Hour Yoga Training in Illinois?

Wednesday, November 6, 2019

So you've finally decided to teach yoga to people and you are ready to embark on an epic adventure called the 200-hour yoga teacher training. 

First of all, let us congratulate you on deciding to take this big step. You may not be aware right now, but upon completion of this course, your life will change. However, you may be hesitant to join a 200-hour YOGA TRAINING in Illinois because of varying costs.

There are many registered yoga schools in and around Illinois and all have different prices for teacher training courses. Yoga teacher training is a significant investment and if you are working part-time and on a short budget, it can be hard to manage the finances.

We'd like to tell you that you should consider this training as an investment in your life. Once you'll complete the qualification, you'll automatically become registered with the Yoga Alliance US which will open many doors for you.

If you're not going to teach yoga at your own studio, then you'll need this qualification. Most yoga studios only allow yoga instructors who have at least 200hr YOGA TRAINING certification completed. 
In this post, we'll try to break down some of the costs associated with yoga teacher training and how you can reduce the overall cost so you can start with the course and take the big step.

You can Save Big by Joining Early

  • You can significantly reduce the total cost of a 200-hour yoga teacher training course by joining early. Most registered yoga training schools such as Wild Abundant Life offer early bird discounts. 

We offer a discount of up to $500 if you join early into our 200-hour YTT course. Check the full pricing of our teacher training courses here. 

  • If you still find it hard to pay for the course, we also offer a customized payment plan. We allow you to pick the dates and the increments and then we schedule them into our system for you. As long as you pay in full for 6 weeks prior to the start date of the course, you'll get $500 off.

Traveling for Yoga on a Budget

  • Some schools, including Wild Abundant Life offer immersive yoga teacher training courses meaning that you will be traveling to a location with your instructors to increase your knowledge of the practice.

The immersion program is best suited to people who want to dedicate their entire day to day schedule to learning yoga practices. But as with all immersion yoga teacher training courses, you may or may not be provided with accommodation.

  • Even if a registered yoga school gives you accommodation, the cost will be pretty high, so it is always a good idea to arrange for your own accommodation. A lot of schools let you choose your own accommodation so make sure you have done your research and find a place that is cheap and near to the place where you will be getting taught.

One great way to save big while you are on the journey is to share rooms. You could talk to other students on the same course and decide upon a place where the two or three of you can share a single room. 

  • Most often the meals are also shared which means that you'll save big on both accommodation and meals. 

Is it Worth Spending on a 200 Hour YTT?

Yes! You'll not only learn the foundations of yoga practice, but you'll also become registered with Yoga Alliance US which will open many new doors for your yoga career. Moreover, you'll meet different people from all walks of life.

You'll learn how these people manage their busy lives while continuing to grow with yoga teacher training. 

The best thing is that most students are able to pay off their entire course fee within the first year of teaching. So if you intend to immediately start teaching yoga after you finish a 200, 300, or 500-hour yoga teacher training, then this is a very good investment.
