As part of the 300 hr Yoga Teacher Training certification you will display an in-depth understanding of an aspect of yoga that you are most passionate about. Below are examples. The sky’s the limit.

Testimonials from current and graduate 300 Hour Program

I have learned so much more concerning yin and the mind body connection. I feel more confident in teaching new things to my students that I have learned from each workshop, whether it be a new pose, a different way to enter/exit a pose, new pranayama technique, and sequencing for my Vinyasa style classes. I feel more confident in how I communicate with my students and I feel more confident in staying out of the way of my students and letting them have their own experience in their practice on their mat.

The most influential aspects have been for me to have a safe, nonjudgmental place to let feeling from the past come up and then lovingly let them go. I have learned to forgive myself for my past transgressions and to open my heart for more space for love and light. To learn to meditate and take time before reacting has been a life changer for me.

You get out what you put into something like this. I gave each workshop/module my full attention, my full self and have gotten so much more in return. I have made little changes in my personal life (eating habits, communication, meditation, breathing) and each has had a great impact on my physical, mental, and spiritual health. I am not perfect, but I accept myself as I am. I couldn’t say that when I started this program in February 2019.

What lineage does your program follow?

We offer the student teachers a variety of many lineages. We consider this approach to add to a well-rounded yoga education so that the student teacher has many examples of eastern knowledge and wisdom. Our staff is certified in a variety of yoga schools including Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Buddhist Tantra, Kundalini, Yin, Yoga Nidra and Shivananda among others. By presenting different lineages of yoga, our hope is that students realize that many paths lead to the same goal, and can then decide what resonates most with them. This will lead to truly embodying the teachings of yoga through a diverse offering of eastern studies.

 

Marisa’s lineage: Nosara Yoga/Self Awakening Yoga. Marisa is a 1000 hr Nosara Yoga Master Educator. She also trained in Ashtanga from Pattabhi Jois and Power Yoga from Baron Baptiste.
