This 300-hour Yoga Teacher Training Course is an advanced, second level course for RYT 200 (Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Teachers with a 200 hour certificate), or students who finished a 200-hour course and wish to become 500 hour teachers.
The 300 hour is for any Yoga teacher wishing to continue their studies and deepen their knowledge surrounding the vast subject of Yoga.
The course will delve into more depth around the subjects of Philosophy, Functional anatomy, and how to structure your classes with more skills, and a clearer insite into creating an inspirational theme.
You will leave with the knowledge of how to develop classes to mixed levels, how to accommodate injuries and certain health issues, structure sequences around a peak posture, and how to use safe hands on and verbal assists for each posture.
You will look in detail at the ‘’Art of Sequencing’’ and how to build a class around a theme, integrating the ancient philosophies, yet making it applicable to modern day Yoga. You will also have a clearer understanding of how to choose appropriate groups of Asanas, how to anatomically prepare for a peak posture, apply an appropriate breathing technique, as well as creating a nurturing space for practice.
In addition to this you will learn about the anatomy of the Organs, their function and what ailments can occur on so many other levels when things are not working effectively. This has a huge influence on how you may wish to build a practice with particular focus on enhancing the organ function.
You will look at how Yoga can be used as a complementary therapy, where the integration of various Yoga techniques may enhance wellbeing.
This is a great addition to the module structured around teaching private clients, and continually develop techniques for a vast array of injuries and ailments, whether physical or emotional.
Possibly you completed your 200 hour some time ago or even recently, and feel you need to add to your knowledge in order to take your Yoga Teaching to the next level, with confidence and creativity.
The course is run over 16 days of in person contact hours, together with written assignments, home study and research, which all goes towards your final assessment.
