    Hello there,
    I was interested in your 500 hr yoga teachers program. I have already completed a 200hr accredited yoga TTC and was wondering if you also offered a 300hr TTC in order for me to still achieve a 500 accreditation?
    I live in Australia , so I would be looking at the availability of a residential program.
    Thank you in advance.
