Advanced Studies & Teacher Mentoring
OUR 300-HOUR ADVANCED TEACHER TRAINING IS CURRENTLY ON HIATUS WHILE WE UPDATE AND REDESIGN OUR PROGRAM. PLEASE CHECK BACK IN 2020 FOR UPDATES.
Deepen your practice, enrich your yoga journey, fill your well, and ignite your inspiration. Our advanced program is an invitation to be curious about all that makes us human. Study, examine, and experience the intelligence and complexity of our physical, emotional, mental, pranic, and energy body.
Our skilled, experienced, and passionate faculty bring their unique perspectives and expertise to our program in diverse and integrated ways. We believe learning is richest when offered through multiple lenses and learning modalities. You will hear – see – do – teach – reflect, making this program highly experiential. Dedicated studentship, a curious mind, an open heart and self-inquiry that is courageous and loving are key components to success in our program. We welcome you to embark on this path with us!
Successful completion of our 300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training, coupled with your existing RYS-200-hour certificate earns you a 500-hour teaching designation.
Key Topics Covered
Asana Technique & Practice: Explore the various modalities of yoga including Alignment-based Hatha Yoga, Therapeutic Yoga, Flow Yoga, Natural Movement, Functional Movement, Bandhas, Pranayama, and Kriya.
Teaching Methodology: Learn methods of cuing, sequencing, themes, adjusting, classroom management, voice training and cultivating presence. You will have the opportunity to peer teach and receive feedback in order to cultivate your greatest gifts in the seat of the teacher.
Anatomy & Biomechanics: How does yoga “work”? Specific seminars offer a detailed view to understanding your feet, knees, ankles, hips, pelvis, spine, shoulders, arms, neck and nervous system. Learn to teach with attention to therapeutic needs and uniqueness of individual students.
Mentorship: Having a teaching mentor is an integral part of your development as a yoga teacher. Regardless of how long you’ve been teaching, it’s valuable to draw on the experience and support of mentors from whom you can learn and grow. Our mentorship program will help you feel more inspired, expand your knowledge of yoga, define and refine what it is that truly lights you up about teaching yoga. Our unique Mentorship Program can be taken before, during or after the main part of the training. Learn more here: Mentorship Program
Philosophy, Meditation & Mantra: Explorations from lineages including Tantra, Classical Yoga, Buddhist and Taoist philosophies are offered to gain depth and appreciation for this vast field of wisdom.
Self-development, Conscious Communication & Relationship: The way we communicate is powerful. How we express, or repress, our feelings has huge impact on ourselves and in our relationships, and also shapes the world we live in. Learn how to share your truth, know your boundaries, ask for what you need, and hold loving space for others.
Subtle Anatomy: The subtle body is a map to explore where you may be holding unconscious energy patterns in your body. Through study of chakras, sheaths, nadis, brainwave states, organ systems, and energetic maintenance, you will receive insights to gain greater freedom in your body, breath, mind, heart and soul.
Special Topics: Guest faculty will offer weekend workshops on enriching topics in innovative fields of study.
