300 Hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training
We will be offering our first 300 hour advanced yoga teacher training program in 2020. Registration opens summer 2019.
Our new 300 Hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training Program offers those with a 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Certification to pursue deeper studies in yoga asana, yoga philosophy, depth psychology, trauma informed yoga, anatomy, and more.
Yoga Asana: We will dive deep into the five categories of asana (standing poses, forward bends, backbends, twists, and inversions) using foundational alignment techniques. Students will also explore how to move consciously through embodied mindfulness practices, as well as the art of somatic intelligence.
Yoga Philosophy: We will explore the Bhagavad Gita, aspects of the The Vedas, Kirtan, The Four Functions of the Mind, Vedic Astrology, and will deepen into the practice of seated meditation.
Depth Psychology: We will look closely at Carl Jung’s work on dreams, typology, synchronicity, alchemy, and the unconscious, and explore the psychology of the sacred. We will pay particular attention to the “somatic unconscious,” or the idea that the mind is in the body, and the body is in the mind.
Trauma Informed Yoga: We will explore the physiology of trauma, teaching yoga from a trauma informed perspective, and will tune into the processes of how the body/mind stores and releases experiences, emotions, sensations, imagery, and more.
Fascial Anatomy: We will learn about and explore the fascial sheath of the human body and it’s relationship to asana, philosophy, depth psychology, and teaching yoga from a trauma informed approach. We will explore the fascia as the seat of the “somatic unconscious,” and cultivate an embodied approach to spiritual and psychological work.
In our 300 Hour Advanced Training we will also dive deeper into herbalism, sustainable practices, creative writing/sacred poetry, and more.
Our 300 Hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training Program leads to a 500 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Certification. Students who complete with program will have the option to register with Yoga Alliance as an RYT500.
