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 yoga 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.

After completion of this program, you can become a Registered Senior Yoga Teacher (RYT 500) with Yoga Alliance.

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 yoga teacher.

First of all, the teachings of an ashtanga yoga teacher training course always remains the same irrespective of the number of hours of the training.  It’s not the level of the course but the level of each student which determines what and how much she or he will learn in the course. Students from different levels will feel the course differently. For example: How far you will be allowed to practice in your ashtanga yoga primary series totally depends upon the level of your practice. Secondly, you will also have an exclusive access to our online module of 50-hours hands on adjustment training course as well as yoga anatomy module which the 200-hour YTTC students don’t have. You will also get much more opportunity to practice hands-on adjustment than the 200-hour YTTC students.

Flexibility is not the pre-requisite to join a yoga course but openness is. You don’t have to be flexible to practice yoga. Yoga asana practice will make your flexible.
