About 300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training at Mahi Yoga
Our carefully designed Multistyle Yoga course provides training in three main styles of yoga: Hatha (including traditional and therapeutic), Ashtanga Vinyasa, and Vinyasa Yoga. All our courses are certified by Yoga Alliance, USA.
In our 200hour yoga course we lay the foundations of yoga knowledge, and teaching techniques, while our 300-hour advanced course aims to build and perfect that knowledge even further. The course will hone your skills as a practitioner and a teacher. We aim for students to leave being able to instruct all levels of practitioner effectively whilst giving deeper instruction on both the subtle and physical aspects of yoga.
The 300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training focuses on advanced teaching techniques, intelligent sequencing and the therapeutics or benefits of yoga asana. Emphasis on hands on adjustment, use of props and subtle yoga anatomy are key to the course’s success in building confident teachers. We deliver this knowledge by weaving together theory, physical practice and the subtler introspective aspects such as meditation in order to provide our students with a holistic yoga experience. We believe in learning through experience and therefore our courses are highly practical and experiential.
Even though these courses are aimed at prospective teachers, and we teach in detail how to teach, all of the knowledge learnt can be applied to the individual practitioner. Therefore we recommend the 300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training for practitioners who want to deepen their practice as well as those who wish to teach.
The 300 hour yoga teacher training is an intense course that is a total yoga immersion where you can expect to experience many positive changes. It lifts a yoga teacher’s understanding and technique to another level. Students often comment on the wonderful changes the course brings to their life.
Who is the 300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Course Suitable for?
300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training courses are aimed at yoga teachers who already possess a 200 hr yoga qualification, and we focus highly on teaching methodology. This course may be taken in straight after a 200 hr certification course but also at anytime in the future.
Students will break down the components of each asana or yoga pose. Teachers will guide the students in their exploration of the poses through physical practice and specific asana clinic style sessions where each detail from gross to subtle elements will be discovered. Then, by applying advanced teaching methods, understand how to guide every kind of body through a yoga class with heavy focus on advanced use of props in the Iyengar style of Therapeutic yoga as well as hands on adjustment techniques.
We also recommend the 300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training for dedicated practitioners (who hold a 200hr yoga qualification) who wish to deepen their understanding of yoga to a whole new level. We believe that the process of teaching brings a deeper understanding to any subject.
This course focuses highly on the precise science of yoga and the details of alignment. We do introduce some advance poses but the majority of information goes deeper. Therefore it is not necessary that an applicant is physically advanced in the practice of yoga. More importantly we hope applicants come with an open mind ready to absorb all the knowledge our teachers have to offer.
We advise applicants are physically fit for the four hours per day of yoga practice and the intensive nature of the course. Each application is considered on an individual basis. If you have any query regarding this, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
