300 hour Yoga teacher training in India
Chandra Yoga offers Yoga Alliance USA 300 hours certified yoga courses in Rishikesh – the capital of yoga and in Dharamsala – the Himalayas of India, from time to time.
The 300 hour yoga teacher training course is for those students who have already completed a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training course and are now ready to further their advance yoga education and yoga training. Although we encourage students to gain yoga teaching experience before entering the 300 hour yoga program, we do accept those applicants who have earned their 200 hours registered yoga teacher (RYT) with yoga alliance, USA certificate but have not yet had the time to teach.
The 300 hours yoga course expands upon the student’s already existing knowledge from their previous training.This course is a one month, residential yoga program, and all classes are held on site. Student’s will practice more advanced asanas, study deeper yogic philosophy, and be allotted more time for independent study, teaching hours, and personal introspection. Students will also study common diseases with their causes, symptoms, and yogic treatment.
Research is required to create a 30 minute presentation on a chosen system of human body. Students are required to present their findings to the class in order to gain a deeper understanding of the human anatomy. Additional research may be necessary for designing specific asana classes as described in the homework. Many students prefer to do the 300 hours yoga training in India because the yoga education which students will receive here is most likely different than that which they received in their previous training. While many concepts of yoga are taught similarly throughout the world, learning yoga in India is a truly unique experience which provides students with an exceptional education.
Additionally, completing a YTTC in India looks wonderful on any job application and shows that you are truly dedicated to your yoga practice!
