THE MASTERY OF TEACHING YOGA

300 Hour Teacher Training


The 300 hour training carries on from where we left off in the 200 hour and takes the teachings to the next level. The main focus of the training is to give you the tools to become a versatile yoga teacher in the competitive industry, one that can facilitate classes in different styles that complement each other. In the process, the course deepens your understanding of anatomy, physiology, teaching methodology, sequencing, the subtle body and yoga philosophy. 

More importantly, besides the knowledge that you will acquire, our commitment is to help you become a solid teacher, with your own style and way to express yourself and in alignment with your core truths. In other words, so you can be the best version of yourself on and off the mat.

The course is a collection of carefully curated topics bound together with one goal in mind, to help you develop into a strong and skilful teacher and to empower you to rise to your highest potential.

The training is divided in 4 modules of 60 hours spread over 8 days each, plus a 4 day module of 30 hours for the practicums. This way we complete the required 270 contact hours to receive the Yoga Alliance 300 hour accreditation. The plan is as follow:

  • Module 1: SKILL IN ACTION ~ 60 hours Advanced Vinyasa Teacher Training
  • Module 2: THE YIN WAY ~ 60 hour Yin & Restorative Teacher Training
  • Module 3: CORE CONNECTION ~ 60 hour Pilates & Core Teacher Training
  • Module 4: STILLNESS, BREATH & SOUND ~ 60 hour Meditation, Pranayama & Mantra Teacher Training
  • Practicums: To complete the training, each trainee will design and teach a 60 minute class of any style of choice presented in the program and receive 30 minutes of feedback and recognition from the group.

Each module of this training comes with it's own comprehensible manual and an in-depth guide on how to teach that particular style. We are also reading and discussing in group four classical eastern texts that align with each module. These texts are:

  • Module 1: The Bhagavad Gita
  • Module 2: The Tao Te Ching
  • Module 3: The Yoga Sutras
  • Module 4: The Ramayana

Upon the completion of this training you'll be entitled to apply for the 500 hour accreditation with Yoga Alliance.

As a Doctor I can confirm his excellent knowledge of anatomy and bio mechanics which served to make his teaching of Yoga safe, intelligent and purposeful while still infusing this with traditional yogic principles. history and philosophy which gives great depth to the learning.
I learnt a LOT (some of the Anatomy lecturers at Med School could learn a thing or two from Nico !!!-He is really good!)
Nico is also a gifted communicator, always managing to color his teaching with a great story!
Why do I think this TT is special? Nico has got it sorted in terms of not just WHAT he is teaching but WHY, And that it isn’t about HIM!
He does not teach with ego or as a self serving pursuit, his focus is THE TEACHING. This current runs like an underground stream throughout the training-the ethos, the boundaries and the integrity are all very apparent. And if you ask me what is the most compelling thing about the course, it is this; as implicitly, it asks the same of us!
