300-HOUR ADVANCED YOGA TEACHER TRAINING CERTIFICATION PROGRAM
Unlock the healing potential of yoga to serve the world.
TAKE YOUR TEACHING TO THE NEXT LEVEL: SHARE YOGA AS A TOOL FOR CHANGE
If you are a 200-hour certified teacher looking to take your training to the next level and prepare for a career in yoga service, our training offers a unique opportunity to dive into the deeper and powerfully therapeutic dimensions of the vast array of yoga practices. Earn your 300-hour teaching certification through one of the most highly respected programs in the country – a rigorous, in-depth study of all eight limbs of classical yoga.
If you seriously want to investigate the history, philosophy, psychology, transformative powers, and applicability of yoga therapy to today’s crazy lifestyles…and learn to teach asana exceptionally well…this training is for you.
There are three powerful principles of our 300-hour program that infuse the entire curriculum, and are fundamental to all our trainings and teaching:
- Understanding and Practicing Yoga Therapy
- Honoring Yoga Service (Seva)
- Developing Personal Practice
You have the capacity to provide the spiritual guidance for a global shift in consciousness. You can change the world and help others develop kindness, compassion, and joyfulness, the encoded teachings of the Yoga Sutra.
Whether it is your dream to teach athletes, seniors, those with disabilities, at risk youth, or to teach in all corners of your community – tell us your dream. We will help you devise an Individualized Yoga Program (IYP) that focuses on the area in your community or the special population, with whom you hope to work. Working with your IYP also prepares you to continue your studies in any of the specialized yoga service programs of the Give Back Yoga Foundation, such as Mindful Yoga Therapy for Veterans, The Prison Yoga Project, Yoga for 12 Step Recovery, Yoga for Cancer, and others.
