Overview - The Heart of Yoga
The YogaOasis 300-hour Advanced Teacher Training is geared towards 200-hour Yoga Alliance® Registered (or equivalent) teachers with a passion for asana and the desire to dive deeper into the study of yoga. This training is perfect for practitioners and teachers looking to deepen their personal practice in a shared community. Expect to practice a lot of asana, and emerge with a nuanced understanding of yourself and the vast subject of yoga.
This training includes a weekend of sanskrit studies and Luminous Soul Sessions with Manorama, and a weekend of yoga philosophy with Douglas Brooks.
The 300-Hour Program gives trainees the requirements, along with your previous 200-hour teacher training, to apply as a 500-hour Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance. The total training is 300 hours: 270 contact hours (classroom time with faculty) and a minimum of 30 non-contact hours (reading and homework). The program is a longer, richer, and deeper study of topics you may have been introduced to in your initial 200-hour program.
