Project Description

Sampoorna Yoga RYS 300

300-HOUR VINYASA FLOW ADVANCED YOGA TEACHER TRAINING

OVERVIEW

Our 300-hour Vinyasa Flow Advanced Yoga Teacher Training course is a four-week intensive program designed to deepen your already existing knowledge and foundations of yoga. You must have already completed a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training Course in any style to be eligible to enrol on our 300-hour Yoga Teacher Training Courses.

The primary focus of this course will be on sequencing Vinyasa Flow style yoga classes. Major attention will be given to the principles, technical aspects, and structural components of a Vinyasa Flow class.  Much of your time will be spent on expanding your knowledge of asanas while paying attention to the key alignments and anatomical structures in order to deepen your own practice as well as learning how to teach others safely. In addition, you will gain in-depth knowledge of pranayama, meditation and philosophy.

This course is intended to carry you further along your journey as a teacher and prepare you for a more advanced personal and professional investigation into the transformative power of yoga. We are unorthodox and open in our approach towards teaching yoga, we strongly encourage you to bring your own creativity, intuitions and spiritual experiences into your teaching styles.

THE ESSENTIALS OF ANATOMY

Our anatomy classes ensure understanding of the key muscles and bones used in asana practice and their associated health benefits and contraindications. Substantial emphasis is placed on muscular and skeletal anatomy and in depth analysis of anatomical and skeletal limitations and differences. The specially designed practical anatomy classes are the back bone of the alignment classes.

TAKING THE QUANTUM LEAP

In our 300-hour Vinyasa Flow Yoga Teacher Training course there will be lots of opportunities for you to teach. From day one, you will start teaching one-on-one and progress to teaching larger groups. You will be guided on how to improve and enhance your teaching skills and how to plan and structure a class. You will also have regular opportunities to assist and adjust practitioners in asana classes.

Your journey with us is as much about deepening your own practice and individuality as it is about gaining the skills to teach others. We passionately believe in the significance of your own process of discovery and experience on the development of your unique personal voice and style as a teacher.
