300 Hour – Online Yoga Teacher Training Course Affiliate By Yoga Alliance

40 Days – Daily 5 Hour Class – Yoga Alliance Certified – 300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Course

The 300-hour yoga advanced training builds upon the fundamental concepts taught in the 200-hour TTC and deepens your understanding and practice. The 300-hour Teacher Training in Pokhara Yoga Nepal prepares you to teach principles and techniques of yoga that are more advanced than those taught in the 200-hour TTC.

Practically, we prefer the students who completed 200 hours of teacher training with us to come for this course. However, if you have completed your previous training in a different school or style, please email us your yoga teacher training certificate and syllabus of what you learnt, to ensure that you are prepared for our highly challenging Advanced Teacher Training, in both self-practice and teaching careers.

If we feel that your previous training doesn’t include what is considered standard syllabus, we may ask you to come for a two-week Intensive Yoga course, as a preparation for our 300 hour Yoga Teacher Training in India, which can be challenging if you don’t have the physical and spiritual background that we impart in our 200 hours training.

Part of the 300-hour Yoga Teacher training, the Yoga philosophy class aims at equipping you with in-depth knowledge and understanding of Yoga not just in terms of postures, but the ‘why’ behind them. This class will prepare students to study and understand Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. Once a week, students will lead a discussion reflecting on the week’s readings.
