300-Hour Teacher Training in Los Altos, CA

Have you completed a 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training program?  Take the next step. Our 300 Hour Bridge program is designed to help you increase your knowledge, create a niche for your teaching, develop your voice, and deepen your personal practice. Yoga Assets is offering our 300 Hour Yoga Teacher Transformation Program in 2019 in Los Altos,CA. This training is open to anyone with a 200 Hour Yoga Alliance approved foundation.

Denise ImageThis 300-hour program will qualify participants for a 500-hour RYT registry status with Yoga Alliance, the premier measure of professional education in the yoga teaching community.

You will choose from two tracks:

A) 200 Hour graduates who want to continue their education and experience. You will be paired with an experienced mentor from Track B.

B) 200 Hour graduates and experienced yoga teachers who are interested in becoming mentors/trainers to newer practitioners. You will be paired with someone from Track A

Both tracks will attend and study together, the homework will be different. 

Our 200 Hour focus is on teaching yoga to the general population. We cover the foundations of yoga and focus heavily on the teaching of Asana (postures).  In our advanced 300 Hour course, you will experience more in-depth learning and practical application of the other 7 limbs. We will introduce you to all of the major styles of yoga with guest presenters from Iyengar, Anusara, Kundalini, Ashtanga and Bikram Yoga. Our goal is to help you become a more well-rounded modern day leader in the yoga and mindfulness world. This program will cover yoga philosophy, principles of Ayurveda, advanced anatomy, several meditation practices.

All necessary coursework and practicum will be completed between January and June 2019. These weekend intensives will begin on Fridays at 8am and continue through Sunday evening at 6pm.

This program is offered at a substantial savings when compared to other Yoga Teacher Training programs, and it is difficult to find a “Bridge” program like this one, that allows you to enter with ANY Yoga Alliance approved 200 Hour Certification.

Yoga Alliance 300 Hour Yoga Teacher Transformation Required Curriculum:

Techniques, Training and Practice

This material will foster an enhanced understanding and experience that builds upon the 200  Hour foundational Techniques, Training and Practice sessions. Our focus in the 200 hour program was heavily asana based, so now we move on to a deeper study of the other 7 limbs. You will learn a variety of pranayamas, kriyas, chanting, mantra, meditation and other traditional yoga techniques. These hours will be a mix between: 1) analytical training in how to teach and practice the techniques and 2) guided practice of the techniques themselves.

Teaching Methodology

Students will be given in-depth study of:

  • Communication skills, group dynamics, time management, and the establishment of priorities and boundaries
  • How to address the specific needs of individuals and special populations, to the degree possible in a group setting
  • Principles of demonstration, observation, assisting and correcting
  • Teaching styles
  • Qualities of a phenomenal teacher
  • The student learning process

Anatomy and Physiology
Students will participate in advanced study of human physical anatomy and physiology (bodily systems, organs, etc.) as well as energy anatomy and physiology (chakras, nadis, etc.). Includes both the study of the subject and application of its principles to yoga practice (benefits, contraindications, healthy movement patterns, etc.). A unique feature of this program is a full day ‘field trip’ for an anatomy experience with virtual technology.  This will be scheduled outside of regular class time.

***The anatomy lab will be held on a Monday in March from 8am to 4pm.

Advanced Anatomy 

Includes both human physical anatomy and physiology (bodily systems, organs, etc.) and energy anatomy and physiology (chakras, nadis, etc.).  Includes both the study of the subject and application of its principles to yoga practice (benefits, contraindications, healthy movement patterns, etc).  Here’s what one of our students had to say about our Study of Anatomy:

“I’ve decided that as humans, everyone should be entitled to an anatomy lab. My practice this morning, then bike ride has changed so much. I am more aware of my posture, positioning, and transitioning in both realms. It has also made me more conscious of drinking more water and eating nothing but clean healthy food. The environmental influences on our bodies are hard enough on us. (Those black spots on that guys lungs were from 2nd hand smoke and bad air) My body has been amazing and so giving for 39 years. I choose to give back to this amazing creation from now on. Namaste’ Body!!”

Yoga Philosophy, Lifestyle and Ethics for Yoga Teachers

Students will receive more in-depth knowledge of:

  • Further and deeper study of yoga philosophies and traditional texts
  • Yoga lifestyle, such as the precept of non-violence (ahimsa), and the concepts of dharma and karma
  • Ethics for yoga teachers, such as those involving teacher – student relationships and community
  • Understanding the value of teaching yoga as a service and being of service to others through yoga (seva)

Practicum
Includes practice teaching, receiving feedback, observing others teaching and hearing and giving feedback, and a group community project that will be presented at the culmination of the program.

Specialized Areas
Students will have access to some unique and specialized training programs including work with a trauma sensitivity coach, instructors from various traditions including Kundalini, Iyengar, Ashtanga, Anusara, MBSR, Yin Yoga and an in-depth study of human anatomy.
