150 Hour Advanced Studies Deep Dive for Yoga Students

Experienced Instructors, In-Depth Studies & Practice, Wide Range of Topics

Are you interested in taking your understanding and practice of yoga to the next level, but don’t feel interested in teaching or taking on the time commitment of our 200 or 300 hour teacher training programs? If so, our “Deep Dive” Track is for you.

This program allows you to take one of the Advanced Studies Immersion Weekends, as well as at least 130 hours of immersions at your own pace, without needing to do homework, teach, or complete mentorship hours.

Pick and choose from the incredible assortment of immersions that we offer to tailor your “Deep Dive” to fit your schedule, budget, and needs. Enjoy intimate, in-depth classes and access to teachings and material that you don’t get in most regular studio classes.

At Sellwood Yoga, we aspire to teach and provide trainings that are accessible and support our commitment to equity and inclusion. We offer a limited number of scholarships and/or work study positions for those who are in need of financial support. You can apply for the scholarships and/or work study positions by answering additional questions on the program application.

Upcoming Dates: TBD

We are currently accepting applications to the program. However, we are waiting to schedule the immersions due to COVID-19.
