Tuition and Fees


New for 2017 - We have Lowered our Prices!!!

At Balance Your Body Yoga we are always looking for ways to encourage those who wish to learn more about yoga. We are dedicated to providing a scientific foundation for you to build safe and effective teaching skills.

With this in mind we have lowered our early registration and regular registration prices for those who are wishing to use a 'pay as you go' plan for their training.

If you are looking to save even more, then please contact a Program Advisor for more information on our payment plans.

Program Discounts

At Balance Your Body Yoga, we offer more options than some teacher's training programs in that you don't have to commit to the entire program at once. You can start your training for as little as $23 and take the courses as suits your schedule and interest. Some of our trainees like this 'pay as you go' plan because they can control the pace of their learning, reduce the up front costs and still receive a substantial discount for early registration. We will track your hours in this kind of plan and let you know what you need to complete a 100, 200 or 500 hour program.

We also offer greater discounts for registering and paying for an entire program. Not only do you receive our steepest discounts with this version, but also you will be able to take unlimited group classes from us at no additional charge. Please contact us to get details on discounts for our 100 hour, 200 hour or 500 hour programs.

Of course price is not the only thing to consider in a yoga teacher's training program. We offer a comprehensive program that focuses on anatomy and physiology so you will understand the underlying concepts that makes yoga so effective. Our program includes a thorough grounding in yoga history and philosophy as well as topics covering nutrition, yoga energetics and relaxation methods. We also offer our expertise into the world of recuperative yoga and how transformational yoga can be for students of varying physical abilities and recovering from injuries.

For your benefit, this training is not a rushed intensive program that crams too much into just a few short weeks. We let learning travel at a healthy pace so that you can absorb the information more naturally and with less stress. The modules take place over the course of a year, typically just one Friday and Saturday a month so the training program works well with those who have work or family commitments. We also allow you to start your training at any time and there is no restriction on how long you take to complete your training.

We are a Yoga Alliance registered training school which means completing a 200 hour program allows you the option to apply for Yoga Alliance registration. With a Balance Your Body Yoga training certificate and national Yoga Alliance registration, you will have more options available to you as a yoga instructor.

We would love to hear from you and answer any questions you have. We offer a complementary consultation to discuss your training plans. Call us (281-206-4292) or email us (bybyoga@yahoo.com) today and let us know how we can help you.
