YTT 300 HOUR

About Our Program:

The Elemental Yoga 300 Hour Advanced Training Program is registered with the Yoga Alliance. Upon completion of this course, you may apply to be recognized as an RYT 500 through the Yoga Alliance. This program is a deep dive into your self/Self, big and small. You, as a participant, make a commitment to excellence. You commit to arrive, to learn, and to remain open and discerning. We envision this program as a rocket launching station that will help you improve your life physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. 

 

We sincerely believe that even if you are presently satisfied, you can garner tremendous benefit from our program. By enrolling in this program, part of your mission is to become so centered within yourself that you approach life all the time from a playful and exploratory attitude of finding fulfillment in all situations. In this way, life becomes a fun adventure and Yoga becomes the toolbox to navigate the journey.

 

At Elemental Yoga we teach Yoga as a whole science- addressing body, mind and spirit, practical and esoteric. We strive personally and professionally to refine our minds and purify our hearts. At the same time, we seek to fulfill every day desires. Likewise, we equip you as the student with the necessary tools to eliminate the excess and put your attention one pointedly on the important parts of your life.

 

This program builds the skill of interoception, that is feeling from the inside out. This increases your emotional and physical intelligence and builds empathy for your present and future students. You will learn to translate your experiences in a way that is down to earth and relevant to your desired teaching population. Additionally, you will focus on building intuition and listening to your higher Self. This listening can be defined as any recognition and subsequent choice that moves you in the direction of greater clarity. We have found the reorientation of self-respect, time and productive thought/action to be paramount in this process of Self-listening.

 

Not only will you, the advanced student, become more effective at life, you will learn to guide others toward that same end. This program is deeply personal and practical. Our methodology of self-improvement and service primarily occurs on three levels: structured learning, accountability/class assignments & the willingness to continually take your next step in learning. If you hold fast to these three principles, you will enter the spiraling vortex of transformation! It is our honor for you to enroll in this program.

 

1. Therapeutic and Adaptive Yoga Module:

In this module, students will focus on functional movement both within the Yoga practice as well as across other athletic disciplines. Students will study posture and learn how to assess clients individually for one on one training. Students will learn variations of the traditional poses which render specific therapeutic benefits for ailing students. 

2. Advanced Classical Ashtanga Yoga Module:

In the Advanced Classical Ashtanga Yoga Module, you will study the Yoga Sutras on a weekly basis. The Yoga Sutras is the most outstanding and fundamental text of the teachings of Yoga. 

 

Every Sunday morning you will be guided through asana, pranayama, mantra and meditation to explore the subtleties of your own mind and body. We will study from texts which focus on the energy body such as Eastern Body, Western Mind by Anodea Judith and Energy Anatomy by Caroline Myss. Subsequently, you will teach and share these powerful practices with fellow students. This allows you to immediately integrate your experiences into self-knowledge. On longer Sundays, you will give presentations, learn to work with trauma sensitive populations and learn healing energy practices such as Reiki and the Emotional Freedom Technique, a.k.a. tapping.

 

You are required to teach and assist thirty hours outside of class. This can be done through self initiated programs and/or you can also participate in teaching the weekly donation asana and meditation classes at Elemental Yoga. You will be supported by teachers and staff to set up a teaching situation which suits your needs.

 

3. Apprenticeship Module:

Within the Apprenticeship Program, you as the advanced student will serve as a mentor and a role model. As a graduate of the Elemental Yoga 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Program, you will be able to integrate previously overlooked information. As a graduate of another 200 hour program, you will receive the foundations of our 200 hour course.

4. Mind Arts Module:

You will participate in a minimum of six Mind Arts Courses. These courses cover a variety of subjects. You have the option to enroll in the classes you find most interesting. All Mind Arts Courses help develop the positive mind as well as reveal hidden talents and dreams.
