300-Hour Teacher Training Curriculum
From gaining a greater understanding of teaching trauma-informed classes to the foundational concept of the subtle body to new concepts in restorative yoga, the 300-hour course of study will impact virtually every aspect of your teaching… and your practice.
- Module 1 + Expanded Practice & Sequencing
with Farzaneh Noori & Hanna Gilan
Friday-Sunday, March 29-31, 1:00-7:00PM
In this course, students will learn how to incorporate the use of chairs and wall ropes in their practices for optimal alignment and deeper understanding of the pose. We review sequencing principles and expand on how to adapt a practice to current conditions of the students, developing a more cohesive experience. You will learn the principles of Karama and gain the knowledge to cue your classes into an intelligent step-by-step sequence.
- Module 2 + Quantum Leap® Anatomy
with Sarah Court
Friday-Sunday, April 26-28, 1:00-7:00PM
Quantum Leap training will advance your understanding of biomechanics and kinesiology as you methodically approach common pathologies. You’ll advance your critical thinking as you develop movement strategies to create a more mindful class.
- Module 3 + The Teaching of Teaching: Deeper Focus, Advanced Asana and Hands-on adjustments
with Farzaneh Noori & Hanna Gilan
Friday-Sunday, May 24-26, 1:00-7:00PM
A series of advanced asana will be studied in the context of issues that may confront a yoga teacher. The concept of “yoga in real time” incorporates aspects of a musical performance into teaching a yoga class.
- Setting the tone and establishing the foundational structure of the class
- Starting your planning from the inside-out to bring an elegance to your classes
- Demonstrating poses with confidence as a fundamental teaching modality
- A full range of teaching enhancements, from adding refinement in asana, transitioning and pacing your classes and an enhanced understanding of the psychology of teaching.
- The integration of philosophical teachings and poetry into your classes.
Hands-on adjustments are a profound way to aid students in their practice. Whether the adjustment is to deepen, align or relax a pose, a non-verbal communication can transform a yoga practitioner. Skillful adjustments communicate clearly, are firm or gentle as situations require, but should always offer deeper insight into the higher potentials of the body as well as the form and essence of the practice. You will hone your ability to read bodies as a guide to selecting an appropriate method of assisting, be introduced to a wide variety of adjustments in key asana and learn how to protect students from injury while adjusting. You’ll also enhance the confidence and skills necessary to offer the transformational power of hands-on adjustments to others with clarity and confidence.
- Module 4 + Yoga and the Mind
with Tatiana Urqiza & Farzaneh Noori
Friday-Sunday, June 28-30, 1:00-7:00PM
This module is designed to give students an overview of the history and lineage of yoga, important foundational knowledge for teaching and placing the contemporary practice within its historical perspective. You will be introduced to meditation and chanting, mantra and mudra as ways to access and quiet the mind. Students will gain the ability to do a guided meditation focused towards a specific practice.
- Module 5 + Trauma-Informed Yoga
with Hanna Gilan
Friday-Sunday, September 27-29, 1:00-7:00PM
Bringing together yoga with the latest trauma research, this training will give you a greater understanding of toxic stress and trauma and how they affect the nervous system—body and mind. Understanding the practice of trauma-informed yoga is a valuable tool in managing common anxiety, depression, behavioral issues, relationship stress and health problems. You’ll learn to identify types of trauma, including intergenerational and historical, and charting its long-term impact on the body and body memory, achieving greater self-regulation through yoga, breathing techniques and mindfulness. The fundamentals of the trauma-informed practice give you insight in both instruction and sequencing, and you will be encouraged to reach out to the community to bring trauma-informed yoga to those in need.
- Module 6 + Introduction to Ayurveda
with Farzaneh Noori & Lynn Haskel
Friday-Sunday, October 25-27, 1:00-7:00PM
A unique and all-encompassing path to self-knowledge, Ayurveda means “the science of life.” Ayurveda uses the fundamental principles of nature to help promote and maintain health by keeping the body, mind and spirit in a state of balance. You’ll learn the foundations of Ayurveda. These include a greater understanding of Prakruti and Vikruti as well as basic theories of gunas, doshas, agni and ama. You’ll learn how to incorporate Ayurveda in your teaching of yoga and create sequences based on specific doshas and the seasons, balancing the doshas and energies in the body.
- Module 7 + Therapeutic Yoga Level I
with Cheri Clampett & Arturo Peal
Monday- Saturday, August 5-10, 10-6PM
Therapeutic Yoga is a particularly effective practice for those recovering from, or living with, injury or illness. Therapeutic Yoga combines restorative yoga (supported postures), gentle yoga, breathwork, hands-on healing, and guided meditation techniques in such a way that it is an excellent choice for those students needing something gentle yet effective for bringing the body into balance and reducing stress. Therapeutic Yoga is a deeply meditative experience – it provides the opportunity to step away from the busy-ness of the outside world and access the deeper wisdom that resides within us.
- Module 8 + Deepening Into Therapeutic Yoga Level II
with Cheri Clampett & Arturo Peal
Monday- Saturday, August 12-17, 10-6PM

- Module 9 + Subtle Body
with Tias Little
Thursday- Sunday, November 7-10, 11-5:30PM
The Subtle Body practice is essential knowledge for the yoga teacher, with Asana and Pranayama as its gateways. Engaging the bandhas, internal seals directing the flow of vital energy through the body, is essential in sparking open the nerve plexus along the front of the spine. This module brings clarity and profound meaning to this aspect of our discipline and provides a structural basis for its practice.
- Module 10 + The Practice of Teaching & Apprenticeship
As a yoga teacher, you know the importance of experiential learning. In Module 10, you’ll have opportunities to practice teaching with feedback and guidance from your lead instructor. You’ll also be required to observe the teaching of others and learn to use each engagement with your colleagues—and your students—to enhance your own development as a teacher. The Practice of Teaching is essentially an in-depth study of the dynamics of the yoga class and how that dynamic shapes both what and how you teach.
