300-Hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training

The 300-hour training program is a continuation of the foundational skills and knowledge you obtained from your 200-hour program.

I am firm believer that as teachers we need to take responsibility for our own continuous study and exploration of yoga.
I also believe that at this 'training' level, a student-teacher mentor situation is more beneficial and valuable than a group setting.

A 200-hour program lays the foundation and gives you the tools to begin teaching. A 300-hour program should be designed to not only expand your skills and offer more in-depth study, but it should also meet you where you are as a teacher and support your individuality.

With this is mind, I put together this program.
It will guide you through different courses of study - some units will be with me as your teacher, and other units will use other platforms and materials.

Teachers you will be studying with:
David Keil (Anatomy)
Paul Grilley (Anatomy & Yin Yoga)
Dr. Seth Powell, PhD (Yoga Philosophy & History)

Along with that, you get unlimited access to me. You choose how much support and contact you need/prefer. You have the option of keeping all communication via email, or with 6 one-on-one mentoring sessions. These sessions can be done in-person or via Zoom.

This is a two year self-paced, self-study program.
Using this platform you will progress through each course on your own personal timeline and schedule. 

Study Materials Include:

-Downloadable/printable training manual
-Prerecorded yoga practices themed around the '8 Limbs of Yoga' with written class plans that include sequencing, opening intentions, and guided meditation scripts.

-peak pose class plans
-video recordings of in-person trainings
-audio tutorials
-guided meditation audios for your personal meditation practice
-guided meditation scripts to use in class
-the 90 minute LKPY class sequence blueprint & sequencing formula

-over 85 hours of online lecture tutorials through YogicStudies.com
-online advance yoga anatomy course

-AND MUCH MORE!

This type of study platform is specifically for those who are disciplined, motivated, and committed to the ongoing study of yoga.

PROGRAM CURICULLUM

TECHNIQUES, METHODOLOGY & ANATOMY MODULE
The three courses in this module are designed to build on and support each other.


Advanced Anatomy for Yoga - 15-Hour Online Course

This is David Keil's anatomy course developed specifically for 300-hour yoga trainings. We'll use that foundation to follow the anatomy through the process of building asanas. We'll deconstruct seemingly complex asanas and look at their parts and pieces through the lens of anatomy. This course will provide you with information and tools to understand why you might be observing a particular pattern in your student's practice. At the completion of this course, you'll have a better understanding of how to help your students build the patterns they need to evolve their postures in a healthy way.

This course includes: video tutorials, reading assignments, online quizzes, study guide questions and exploration exercises

Developing a Teacher's Eye - Observing & Understanding Common Imbalances
This course will include:
Working with Common Imbalances-
-study of causes and muscles involved in common muscular imbalances found in the body that occur from normal day to day activities or due to prior injuries
-learn poses and movements to address specific imbalances
Comparative Anatomy Online Tutorial with Paul Grilley 
-learn how anatomical differences can affect yoga poses
-the difference between tension and compression
-exploration of how anatomical proportions affect poses
Assessing Students-
-learn how to use specific poses and movements to assess a student
-learn a sequence specific for assessing students

This course includes: reading and written assignments, video tutorials; you will be required to lead one student (of your choice) through the assessment sequence included in the course and submit your notes and observances

The Art of Teaching Simple to Complex Poses in a Power Vinyasa Class
-learn how to include more complex poses in a vinyasa style class without breaking the flow and without leaving any student behind no matter level of individual experience
-learn how to sequence for a peak pose without straying from the power vinyasa sequencing formula (the power yoga sequence and formula are included in your training manual)
-the 5 steps in teaching simple to complex
-how to break down a complex pose
-fine tune your cueing to excel at teaching simple to complex (passive v. active voice, you/your v. that/the, excessive jargon and filler words)
-includes class plans/sequences for teaching to a peak pose

PLEASE NOTE: A 'peak pose' does not mean 'advanced'. The art of teaching simple to complex can be applied to all levels and variants of an asana. You are not required to perform what is considered more advanced poses to complete this course of study.

This course includes: audio tutorials, reading and written assignments; you will be required to submit a video recording of you leading a class (or student) for an initial teaching assessment - if you choose the 1-on-1 mentoring option, your assessment will be completed in-person at the LKPY studio (you will be assigned a LKPY teacher as your student or you can bring your own), and this will be considered as one of your six sessions.

Module One Final Exam:
Your final exam consists of planning a class based on your studies of the 'Teaching Simple to Complex' unit.
*Please see below for directions on how to complete your final exam.


PHILOSOPHY & ETHICS MODULE

Patanjali's Yoga Sutras ask us to turn inward through meditation and self-study with the intention to guide us towards self-realization and determining how we want to move through life. The Bhagavad Gita asks us to contemplate how we are putting our yoga into action for the greater good - to create a just world.

This module will take you deep into the study of yoga philosophy on an intellectual level. But it will also ask you to reevaluate how you apply specific philosophical principles as you navigate through life and in the world. It will ask, what is your dharma?


The 8 Limbs of Yoga in Action
This unit is designed to compliment and reinforce your online studies with yogicstudies.com. It includes 11 prerecorded guided yoga class practices that will spotlight a specific philosophical concept and a 10-week course of self-study and reflection.

Each prerecorded practice includes an asana practice, mantras, and a guided meditation relevant to the philosophical focus. Through practice, you will learn how to apply yoga philosophy into your class using physical actions to help your students develop a better understanding of what yoga really is - beyond the pose.
You will also receive class plans using the 8 Limbs as a theme. Each plan includes sequencing, scripts for guided meditations and opening intentions when applicable.

As part of this unit, over the course of 10 weeks, you will review the yamas and niyamas, and with the guidance of the Skill In Action book, dig deeper and bring the focus as to how to put them into action on a global level - for the collective good. You will be asked to reevaluate how you apply specific philosophical principles as you navigate through life. It will ask, what is your dharma?

Self-reflection papers are required to help explore your growth in these concepts since you were first introduced to them and to discern if and how you are putting your yoga into action for the greater good of the world.

Guided meditations with a focus on each Yama and Niyama are included to supplement your self-exploration each week. You will learn how to write and lead a guided meditation.

This course includes: required asana and meditation practices, reading and journaling assignments
