The 500 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Course is a combination of both the 200 and 300 Hour Yoga TTC. The benefit of taking a 500 Hour YTTC is that you don’t have to keep thinking about when you would complete the next training after your 200 Hour YTTC. If you can commit to 2 months to further your yogic education and practice, then the 500 Hour YTTC is just for you! Every practitioner is an individual and depending on the capability of the student they might need some time to absorb the extensive education from the 200 Hour YTTC. But if you feel ready to indulge in an intensive two months of training and you have the time, then we say to go for it now!
After completion of the 200 Hour YTTC module, our teachers will help you to design exciting workshops during your 300 Hour YTTC. You then get the chance to teach to our 200 Hour YTTC students before going back to your country to share your newfound expertise. We guarantee that when you complete your two month Yoga Teacher Training with us, you will feel more confident to deliver specific yoga classes, have a better understanding of the origins of yoga, and be ready to share this with the rest of the world. After reviewing our website, reviews, and video testimonials, please feel free to reach out to us with any further questions as we are more than happy to clarify.
500 hour Yoga Teacher Training Modules:
The Asana Core Module focuses in on three critical aspects of your teaching: postures, adjusting and sequencing. Discover how to approach asanas that might be unfamiliar to you such as those found in the 2nd series of Ashtanga Vinyasa and moon salutations. Gain newfound creativity in class sequencing, both for those of you who are just starting to teach and those who need inspiration. Become genuinely confident in the application and communication of physical touch, through hands-on support and assists.
Embark on a detailed exploration of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, beyond the eight limbs of yoga. Studying this pivotal text from start to finish will give you a thorough understanding of his fundamental concepts. We will cover: response to change (parinama), overcoming obstacles, clarity, pranayama according to Patanjali, the practice of samyama, and kaivalyam.
Your crucial tool as a yoga teacher is the body, which is why an entire understanding of anatomy is vital. In this module, you will reach a deeper understanding of anatomy and how to translate that knowledge into a functional teaching tool, while addressing injuries and alignment. Learning how the body functions as a complete system and incorporating that directly into your teaching is an indispensable tool.
