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. We will focus on advanced asanas, 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
A unique feature of this program is a full day ‘field trip’ for an anatomy experience including working with “Anatomy in 3D” clay models and visiting the Body Worlds exhibit in San Jose .  This will be scheduled outside of regular class time. ***The Los Altos anatomy lab will be held on Monday October 22nd from 8am to 5pm

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)

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 Electives
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 in-depth study of human anatomy.
