Advanced Teaching Modules

350 Pathway - 50hr Modules

Upon graduating from our 200-hour teacher training (or a 200-hour training with another school), we offer an accessible schedule of 50-hour modules to continue your training, deepen your knowledge and grow your skills. Ongoing study is essential to your development as a teacher, and our commitment is to equip you with everything you need to keep evolving in your teaching.

We’ve identified key areas that you will have likely touched upon in your 200-hour training, that are ripe for exploring with more depth and breadth. Around these key areas, we’ve created six individual 50-hour modules that offer a technical, practical and inspirational framework so that you may address your students’ needs in class, feel confident in the knowledge you are offering, live in the wisdom of yoga, and stay on top of your own personal growth and self-care.

Each of these modules is completely self-contained (ie there are no prerequisites other than a 200-hour training), as well as being completely integrated with all our other modules which, when combined, serve as a rich tapestry of practical tools, yogic wisdom and heartfelt inspiration. You may take the modules in any order, and over the period of 12, 18 or 24 months, or longer if you wish!

Each module is offered over five full days, and each one is held twice per year. Please check the website for dates and details, as some of them are offered as residential retreats and include accommodation and meals, while others are 'urban retreats', held in our studio.

 

Advanced Teaching Modules

  • Alignment, Assisting & Anatomy
  • The Art of Sequencing
  • Meditation Teacher Training - The Subtle Arts

 

Alignment, Assisting & Anatomy - 50 hr Module

This is an depth journey into the anatomical and energetic intelligence in your body, refine your practice, and discover how to use hands-on enhancements and assists to help you and your students find a deeper awareness while practicing asana.

A good foundation in Anatomy is essential for yoga teachers, and helpful for those dedicated yogis who want to have a deeper connection to their own practice.

Our focus is on keeping people safe, preventing injury and dealing with common anatomical and physiological issues that can often be present during yoga practice.  We'll tune in to the subtle nuances of  human biomechanics through the structural alignment of the musculoskeletal system, and the effect of yoga practice on the body through these key areas:

  • >span class="s1" data-redactor-span="true">Physiology of the moving body - healthy biomechanics of strength, flexibility, stability
  • Spine - how we balance stability with mobility for healthy spinal movement
  • Lower body - feet, knees, hips, pelvis - how to attain stability, flexibility and healthy range in the lower body joints
  • Upper body - hands, wrists, forearms, elbows, shoulders - how to attain stability, flexibility and healthy range in the upper body joints

Building on knowledge of anatomical function, you'll be guided through an understanding of the energetic pathways of the body based on the Five Vayus (movements of energy). From this knowledge, you will discover primary alignment actions in yoga asana through personal practice and hands-on assisting.  A skilful hands-on assist is an exceptional teaching tool, and can be transformational and empowering to receive, if the approach is sincere, sensitive and respectful.  

Build a deeper awareness of yoga asana within your own body, and enjoy transferring this knowledge through a delicious exchange of hands-on assists with your fellow trainees; expand your repertoire and 'yogic toolkit', while gaining confidence whether you are practicing, assisting or teaching.

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN

  • Energetic and structural alignment - understand movements of energy through the body and how the key actions of any asana can be enhanced by tuning in to these energy pathways
  • >span class="s1" data-redactor-span="true">How to take care of yourself in your own practice, and as the teacher - how to centre and stabilize your own body before supporting a student via a hands-on assist
  • >span class="s1" data-redactor-span="true">How to cultivate trust and connection
  • Empathy - being able to give and receive, and when to ask for permission
  • How to see people’s bodies rather than just poses - techniques of observation so you know who, when and how to assist
  • >span class="s1" data-redactor-span="true">How to help support, stabilise, awaken and deepen your students’ practice through the different types of touch

Meditation Teacher Training - 50 hr Module

The Subtle Arts of Yoga

Meditation and the art of Mudra, Pranayama and Mantra cultivates a quality of attention, curiosity and wonder that can transform a yoga practice and your life.  

In this course you will learn the wisdom and skills to guide your student’s awareness through the 'koshas', or the layers of one's being from gross to subtle.   These layers of our being have an innate ability to find a healthy balance and harmony. However our modern lives can disconnect our awareness from these natural instincts, creating blockages to natural health and wellbeing.

The subtle arts of yoga refine our skill in accessing our body’s natural instincts and expressions in finding health and vitality. You will discover how to weave these elements through a yoga class, allowing students to become awakened to the full potential of yoga. Helping to guide your students in a natural, life-affirming approach to meditation is a wonderful gift, whether you aim to teach meditation as part of an asana class, or in dedicated meditation sessions.

What you'll learn

  • The language and presence to guide meditation instinctively and effortlessly.
  • Timeless meditation practices from the yoga tradition.
  • The science behind how and why these meditation practices work.
  • Skills to awaken natural instincts as doorways to effortless meditation.
  • How to create and hold the space for a truly relaxing and restorative savasana.

Language, Theming & Philosophy - 50 hr Module

THE ART OF AWAKENED TEACHING

As yoga teachers we are essentially communicators or guides to an experience that is often beyond words. Because of this, it's sometimes challenging to find the right words to express the desired sentiment when you're teaching a yoga class.  Learn to teach skilfully by weaving your own personal experience of yoga, with the wisdom that flows from the practices and language of self-inquiry. This dynamic combination of elements results in a class that involves much more than the technical instruction of asana.  In this practical course, delve into the art of essential language to inspire and uplift your students.

Artfully link together anatomical awareness and yoga philosophy in a way that speaks to your students’ bodies, hearts and minds.  Develop your own unique language and teaching style that offer students the exploration of yoga asana through form, function and feeling.

What you'll learn

  • Develop your own unique language and teaching style that offerS students the exploration of yoga asana through form, function and feeling.
  • Learn to layer your teaching instructions with clear and relevant anatomical detail, while sharing your understanding of the benefits of the asana.  
  • Discover ways to speak directly and succinctly, using essential language cues.
  • Learn the language of self-inquiry that will allow your students to delve into their own unique experience of yoga.
  • Create your own language style that is inspiring and heartfelt, so you connect to your students' hearts and minds.
  • Weave yoga philosophy into your classes in relevant, inspiring ways

Meditation Teacher Training with Dr Lorin Roche and Camille Maurine 

You are invited to participate in this in-depth training with global leaders in the field of meditation, Dr Lorin Roche and Camille Maurine (USA). This training is specifically designed for yoga teachers to discover valuable tools and techniques to incorporate meditation into their yoga teaching, or use it as a stand alone modality to enhance the wellbeing of their students.

Meditation has become mainstream in our western culture, with millions of people practicing some form of meditation daily.  It's now well-known in the scientific and medical worlds that meditation is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle, for people to feel less stressed and more connected to what's important in life.

"In the modern West, there is a revolution underway, an awakening, such that yoga and meditation have become completely mainstream.  The challenge now is to train enough meditation teachers to meet the need. It will be decades before there are enough skilled meditation teachers. Let's get to work." ~ Lorin Roche

What you'll learn

  • The science and practice of meditation - meditation is a completely natural and instinctive capacity that every human has - understanding the body's innate regulatory function of rest and renewal is key.
  • Recognizing spontaneity and rhythm - we all experience spontaneous meditative states, and a skilled meditation teacher will learn how to cooperate with their student's inner nature.
  • The subtle senses - develop the ability to recognise and utilise the five senses as gateways into meditation
  • Instinctive wisdom - recognising and honouring our powerful and innate wisdom for self-healing and self-evolving
  • The five elements - meditation teachers need to be intimate with the five elements (Tattvas) of earth, water, fire, air and ether, as revealed by the five senses.
  • Mandala of emotions - understand the full spectrum of emotions that make up a large part of everyone's meditative experience - one of the biggest challenges meditators face.  
  • Language and listening skills - meditation teachers need a new language to guide students into their inner world, and also require skills for effective communication and listening to their students' experience.
  • Meditation techniques - there are literally thousands of techniques of meditation, and skill is required to find the right technique to suit individuals. The Radiance Sutras presents 112 different doorways into meditation to help you guide students to find what they love about meditation, and dive in.
  • Meditation secrets for women - as women make up around 70% of yoga and meditation students, learning to vary your approach for teaching meditation to women will open up doorways to a radical understanding of how to relate to female students.  Presented by Camille Maurine.
  • The opportunity to meditate daily with acclaimed meditation teachers and authors, Dr Lorin Roche and Camille Maurine
  • Daily morning asana practice to integrate asana and meditation
