The 300-hour Yoga Teacher Training offers an advanced yoga training curriculum designed for the experienced yoga instructor who is intentional about developing their yogic skills to the next level. This residential intensive course provides specialized tools for personal transformation and professional growth.
A 300-hour advanced training is designed to build upon and deepen the trainee’s understanding of the fundamental concepts of the practice and teaching of yoga that are taught during the 200-hour course. This prepares trainees to teach advanced principles and techniques of yoga in more (and subtler) detail. Which enables you to teach with greater skill and precision than could reasonably be expected of a 200-hour trained teacher.
The curriculum is designed to deliver this training during 300 hours of experiential practice, written assignments, presentations, excursions and discourse.
You also cultivate enhanced business essentials for developing your brand, messaging and marketing your offerings.
“RYT 300” is an acronym which stands for Registered Yoga Teacher 300-Hour. “300-Hour” means you have studied and accumulated 300 hours of information and study time. It is our intention that the yoga aspirant augment their awareness of the principles which form the foundation of yoga: such as the moral and ethical codes, discipline, mindfulness, inner awareness, all qualities which promote a well-rounded human being and productive contributor to society.
No. Students must provide evidence of having attained a 200 hour level training in the form of a teacher training certificate. Yoga is more than just exercise and being physically fit. It is a way of life. Swadhyaya is the fourth Niyama (self-disciplines) of Patanjali’s Yog Sutras (Ashtanga Yoga) and means “self-study” or “self-inquiry.” It is this mindset we hope to cultivate and observe in our students.
Endeavoring to earn a 300-hour yoga teacher training certificate comes with a responsibility to demonstrate ethical, moral precepts as a role model to future students/teachers, as well as a continual commitment to self-study (swadhyaya, the fourth niyama).

Swadhyaya Yoga School advances expression, education and awareness of Hatha, Ashtanga, and Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga.

Hatha yoga is a branch of yoga derived from one of the six schools of Hinduism. It is the science of yoga which purifies the whole physical body by means of shatkarma (six cleansing practices), asana (postures), pranayama (breathing practices), mudra (seals), bandha (locks) and concentration, as a prelude to raja (Kingly) yoga and samadhi (higher state of awareness commonly referred to as “bliss”). All of which are explored during your teacher training program.
Ashtanga Yoga is understood by the yogic scholar as the eight-limbs of Sage Patanjali: yama (moral code), niyama (self-restraints), asana (posture), pranayama (breathing practices), pratyahara (sense withdrawal), dharana (concentration), dhyana (meditation), samadhi (bliss). Ashtanga Yoga is often confused with the popularized vinyāsa style of yoga developed by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in 1948. Both the origin and sequences developed by Jois, as well as Patanjali’s teachings, will be explored during this yoga teacher training course.
