In this ten-day course you will have the opportunity to learn from experienced and passionate teachers. You can expect to deepen your asana practice and refine your teaching skills. You will study, practice, sequence, adjust, give and receive feedback and teach amongst and to fellow teachers.
Upon completion of the course you will receive a 75hr certificate of completion from Sampoorna Yoga, recognizing your continued training and work. The certificate can be registered under CEP (Continued Education Program) with Yoga Alliance USA and UK.
This course is for you if you have already taken the 200 Hour from any Yoga alliance certified school around the world and want to further deepen your knowledge and skills as a Teacher.
Take your personal practice to the next level with strong and challenging vinyasa flow classes. Each morning asana class will have one lead teacher and one assistant teacher offering hands-on adjustments.
Explore your mind/body possibilities and enjoy being a student again.
The evening classes will be a mix of flow, yin or restorative yoga.
Further revise and enhance your hands-on adjustments.
Being able to teach and offer students hands-on assists in your classes is such an invaluable skill that can transform casual students into avid followers. You will have the opportunity to practice these adjustments in the theory AND morning asana classes.
The art of intelligent sequencing:
Learn how to sequence intelligently, how to prepare the body for peak asanas and how to integrate the effects of the practice. Understand the rules of sequencing but also how to work around them to deliver creative, safe classes. Learn how to design a class for beginners, intermediate and advanced students.
Develop your teaching skills in order to constantly reflect, grow and improve the way you lead, teach and sequence.
Guide fellow students through your sequences, refine your voice as a teacher and consolidate your previous experience.
Renowned and dedicated teachers who have been leading 200 and 300 hour trainings at Sampoorna, will take you on this journey.
Joanna’s hands-on adjustments and her ability to guide students to the next level will take you deeper into you practice.

She has completed Ashtanga TTC in San Francisco, Greece, and a 300 hour Vinyasa TTC at Sampoorna and also workshops with Eddie Stern, Manju Jois, Laruga Glaser, Dylan Werner and David Garrigues.
Alan’s precise alignment cues will give you a deeper understanding of the foundations so you can safely work towards more advanced postures.

June is one of the most pleasant months in Greece as it is the beginning of the summer, with perfect temperatures – typically in the high 20’s.
The food is prepared with the finest local ingredients. Greek honey, the creamiest of yogurts, feta cheese and fresh salads are few of the delicacies we will be satisfying our palates with.
Vegans will also be extremely well catered for with delicious olives and the freshest local produce.
With Athens so close-by, it’s a great opportunity to explore Athens before or after your course. Rich in culture, steeped in history and tradition, this trip will be one to remember.
