The Studio also offers Advanced Yoga Teacher Training. The Advanced 300 hour program is open to those who have already received a 200 hour certification from another yoga school and wish to gain a 500 hour certification. (Your existing 200 hour certification + this 300 hour training = 500 RYT Certification ).
There are two options for beginning this program:
Weekend Modules Start: Complete Teacher Training over time, at a pace that works for you on weekends. Next Advanced Training weekend start date is January 30th, 2020. See Schedule
Intensive Start: Same as weekend modules, but you’ll be starting with a weeklong or longer intensive (3 options listed in catalog). Next Advanced Training Intensive start date is June 6th, 2020. See Schedule
Our advanced training supports you in deepening your practice and providing you with the skills, knowledge and experience to take your teaching to a higher level. Our goal is to help you become the fuller, more potent yoga teacher that you want to be while reinvigorating your mat practice and finding new pathways between the wellspring of wisdom within and an inspired life.
Our unique integrative-modular format will ensure that you won’t have to spend time repeating material that your original 200 hour program already covered thoroughly while you’ll also be able to cover any basic material that your first training did not focus on as much before moving on to the more advanced material (self-assessment in application).
These modules, delivered by well-seasoned and educated instructors (see right), will bring together the transformative teachings of the yogic traditions’ sages in addition to providing modern perspectives on neuroscience, psychology, physiology and anatomy to create an unparalleled experience of personal understanding and development that is relevant to the modern world of technology and relationships. Our vision is to integrate the best of scientific understanding while using the psycho-technologies of advanced yoga practices to re-enchant reality. Yoga is an indispensable wellspring of insight and meaning for life. We aim for you to go deeper into it so that you may give it to your students as well.
During the training, the asana practices are physically challenging but we spend less time on physical conditioning and more on a balanced practice of mindful asana, mudra, bandha, meditation and pranayama. Our version of “Advanced Yoga” is not yoga for contortionists or acrobats. The promise of yoga is not realized through complicated and rigorous physicality, but through a rigor of mindful and well formulated practice. You are ideally a lifelong student whose interest is in yoga’s ability to bring one to a meaningful life.
Whether you wish to use the flexible format to specialize in a particular area of yoga (Alignment, Anatomy, Pranayama, Meditation, Yogic Philosophy, Traditional Energetic Body Practices, Advanced Sequencing, Adjustments, Flow Yoga, Yin Yoga, Hot Yoga, Therapeutics, among many electives in the catalog), or you wish to use the flexible format to fit your schedule, we look forward to aiding you on the next step of your journey.
