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 teacher in this competitive industry, one that can facilitate classes in a few different styles that complement each other really well. 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 you will acquire, we'll teach you how to be an autonomous teacher, to find your own style and voice, to align with your core teachings so you can be an authentic and gracious teacher. In short we give you the tools to 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 four modules:

  • Module 1: SKILL IN ACTION ~ Hatha & Vinyasa Advanced Teacher Training
  • Module 2: THE YIN WAY ~ Yin & Restorative Teacher Training
  • Module 3: JOURNEY INTO THE CORE ~ Pilates & Core Teacher Training
  • Module 4: STILLNESS ~ Meditation, Pranayama & Mantra Teacher Training

Each module of this training comes with it's own comprehensible manual and an in-depth guide on how to teach the particular style. We are also basing the teachings on four classical yoga texts that align with each module, these are:

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

At the end of each module, every trainee will teach a practicum class for that style and receive feedback from the group and the lead teachers. In total each trainee will end up teaching 4 practicums by the end of the training.

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!
