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 this 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 each spread over 8 days, plus 30 hours for the practicum. This way we complete the required 270 contact hours to receive the Yoga Alliance 300 hour accreditation. The modules can be taken in any order, in any city around the world where Nico offers them, you pay as you go and there is no need to commit for the whole program. The only requirement is that all three modules and practicum are completed within a three yer period since the start of the first module. The plan is as follow:
Module 4: ROADS TO INFINITY ~ 60 hour Meditation, Pranayama & Mantra Teacher Training
Practicums: To complete the training once you have attended the 4 modules, each trainee will design and teach a 90 minute class of any style of choice presented in the program and receive 30 minutes of feedback and recognition from the group. The practicum is free of charge and can be arranged during any of Nico’s current trainings or by attending any of Nico’s retreats at cost.
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.
