300hr Yoga Teacher Training - 2019
For many years, we have asked 200YTT teachers what topics they want to further learn in order to develop personally as well as evolve as yoga teachers.
We have listened intently and reached out to the best yoga educators around the world that can satisfy what we have heard. These are the teachers we dream to be apart of the faculty for this 300YTT. We feel so blessed that they all said… YES!
We are all very honoured to have such an inspiring, experienced and knowledgeable faculty for this 300YTT program! Collectively we co-created what we feel is one of the highest quality for the best value 300YTT offered.
So, without further ado, we introduce to you our dream team…

This is also a sustaining self-practice that you can do regardless of age, agility and other conditions. More & more studios are seeking certified Yin yoga teachers so we think it is essential for this training.

The fundamental of our anatomy course is to instigate a deeper understanding of our existence. Starting at the physical level, we’ll explore what is known as skeletal differences. Based on the concept of how our bones are uniquely different from person to person, we can realize that our skeletal structure can inhibit or promote our yoga practice. As we’re beyond the physical self, we will take a thorough look at how our existence matures on the energetic level. Here our teaching is based on the knowledge of the Chinese meridian system. Find out how our psycho-emotional health manifests in the meridians and transforms into various forms of physical ailments. Upon true understanding of our external and internal self, you will learn how to apply yoga asanas to harmonize the mind body and ultimately achieve equanimity.
