This 300-hour Yoga Teacher Training Course is an advanced, second level course designed to improve not only your personal yoga practice, but also your yoga teaching skills.
The course is based on the science of Ayurveda & 5 Elements Theory that is the foundation of traditional and modern yoga therapy.
We dedicate this TTC to all the graduates of 200-hour Yoga TTC from all over the world, from all yoga styles and traditions, even to those of you who didn’t have much opportunity to teach so far!
In this 300-hour program we will concentrate on:

- Hatha yoga practice each day for 90 minutes.

- Introduction to Yogic Philosophy covering patanjali yoga sutras.
- Art of teaching yoga.
- Close the day with an evening reflection practice using restorative yoga or an easy class on Hatha yoga.
- Teaching a small group of students like three to four students for a short time under the guidance of our experienced teachers who will help you through this process.
Our main aim is to prepare you to be a better teacher, and to be able to design classes suitable for all level students with different challenges and needs.
The course is divided into 4 parts: first 3 are dedicated to 3 doshas: Kapha (earth & water), Pitta (water & fire) and Vatta (air & space). The fourth part is a summary of elemental theory and its practical approach. We introduce the theory and methodology of yoga for health support (known commonly as yoga therapy) and we focus on the case studies dedicated to the chosen health issues, such as depression, obesity, back pain, arthritis, anxiety, diabetes, ADHD, thyroid disorders.
We will train you in several aspects of Yoga, starting from asanas, pranayama &meditation tech-niques, through the art of composing yoga classes, to anatomy and philosophy, with an accent on teaching practicum and teaching methodology. The theory is only valid when we can apply it into our real life!
As our groups are small you will have an opportunity to teach a lot, and improve your teaching skills. We give each of our students our personal care and constant feedback. Yoga today is a great health support for many people, also with physical and mental health imbalanc-es. Our aim is to prepare you for being a competent, compassionate and self-confident Yoga Teacher who is able to customise a class to every client, even to the most challenging one, and for those with special needs and health issues.
