300 hour online yoga teacher training
Registered with Yoga Alliance
Max. 8 students.
Monday - Friday
2hrs live online daily
The aim of the course is to significantly deepen understanding of pose forms, internal therapeutic muscular actions within postures, endurance, strength, flexibility and competency in practice. Universal Principles of Alignment applied to pose forms deepen the experience and enhance the potential of the student.
In teaching yoga, the aim is to build clarity in teaching based on strength of practice and enhance communication skills, beginning with intelligible and practical postural cueing, then broadening to general online speaking skills, class and course construction.
Online best practices, sequencing and class planning, yin and restorative yoga, critical thinking, mythology and meaning, meditation and breath-work are supportive elements within the training.
Daily assignments after class, both individual work and in breakout rooms on Zoom for a total of 4 hours per day.
Certification is granted upon completion of a final written exam, in-depth exploration and explanation of a key posture, and the leading of a group class online as well as completion of assigned work.
* Note: This is an evidence-based training, drawing from the most current scholarship on the origins of yoga practice.
The training is secular in nature - we will be investigating the development of mythology and religion, claims of cultural
appropriation, and the consequences an evidence-based rather than a belief-based approach. If you are strongly attached
to a particular religion or ideology, you may find some of the content of this course challenging. Learning something new calls into question
prior understandings, and in this way learning questions one's motivating ideas . So, learning is not a "safe space" if safety is
defined as never being cognitively exercised. Muscles get stronger through appropriate stimulus, and in my view, so does the mind.
I have no religious or philosophical perspective to promote, save the desire to communicate honestly and empower you to teach yoga as skillfully as possible. If this sounds good to you, I look forward to the opportunity to work with you.

Cypress, a student of both 200 and 300-hour courses says:
"I’ve attended both the 200 and 300 hr YTT. The most simple way i can describe the difference is this; The 200 hr was a reveal of the vast amount of knowledge that exists regarding teaching Yoga. The 300 hr was an personal exploration of that knowledge. There are many subjects involved in the 200 hr. There can only be so much time spent on each one, so you’re really only getting a taste of the knowledge that exists around teaching Yoga. The 300 hr had the foundations of the 200 hr to jump off from, and it felt like we got into the material a lot faster. What i learned in the 200 was refreshed in my mind while doing the 300, and i was able to pick and choose which bits were important to me and what i wanted to hold on to in my teaching. Having some teaching experience in between gave me an idea of what i lacked or still wanted to expand on. Even though we were all learning the same material the 300 hr felt more personal in that way - i already had an idea of what i was looking for. The 300 hr solidified my confidence in teaching and i would definitely recommend it to anyone who is teaching yoga and feels like they haven't found their groove yet."
