Move beyond Infinite Yoga’s 200 hr training and go deeper – much deeper! IY’s Advanced “TT” takes you deeper into yourself, and deeper into the art of teaching yoga.
This training is for anyone who is certified at the 200hr level (RYT-200) and has a consistent daily practice. Not yet accredited at the 200hr level? Learn about this qualification here. Advanced students may apply to deepen their own practice regardless of whether they are RYT certified or not.
This training will not only enable you to be certified at the RYT-500 level, but make you a better and more knowledgeable teacher. You’ll stand out as a teacher and as a communicator, advancing your teaching skills visually, verbally and kinesthetically to teach and reach all levels of students.
Visually, you’ll learn how to demonstrate with precision, grace and confidence. You’ll become more aware of how you present yourself through feedback and video playback.
Verbally, you’ll improve the quality and tone of your voice with unique vocal exercises, daily practice and a special workshop to strengthen your “Sound System“. Dana draws from her background as a professional vocalist and 20+ years of teaching worldwide to infuse this training with vocal exercises and the “language of teaching Yoga” to build your vocal confidence.
Kinesthetically, you’ll deepen your understanding of the more subtle anatomical and energetic aspects of the body in motion; improve your knowledge of asana alignment; and advance in your ‘hands-on’ adjusting skills. IY’s advanced training includes learning how to adjust students in advanced postures, how to assess and manage students with injuries, pregnancy etc., and how to help the aging yogi body. Along with daily practice of reading bodies energetically & practicing adjustments there are two special workshops included in this training to help continue to improve your kinesthetic skills.
Our 10 and 20 day Advanced Teacher Training programs are a life-changing yoga immersion, a gift to yourself after your years of yoga practice. You obviously love yoga with all the hard-work, sweat and discipline you put into your practice. You do not need to be a yoga teacher to treat yourself 10-20 consecutive days to go beyond the asana. Gain tremendous insight of yourself physically, emotionally, energetically and spiritually. Move beyond boundaries in your life and in your practice and/or re-ignite your passion for yoga! Ask Dana if you are ready for this training.
All students of Infinite Yoga’s 300 hr Advanced Teacher Training will be deeply immersed in the history and philosophy of yoga: The Bhagavad Gita, Yoga Sutras of Patanjali & Hatha Yoga Pradapika. You’ll go beyond functional anatomy and into connective tissue, internal organs, the respiratory system and Eastern energetic systems. You’ll expand your knowledge of Sanskrit and ancient chants.
As with the 200hr training, our 300 hr Advanced Teacher Training is all about practice. Starting with the morning intensive which forms the foundation for each day. Begin seated in silence followed by pranayama and kriyas followed by a 2-hour dynamic practice. The 2-hour intensive draws from the roots of Krishnamacharya and will alternate traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa with Dana’s unique improvisational sequencing. Each morning practice is designed to challenge you to move beyond boundaries, bring fresh insight and help you to advance in your yoga practice.
Why IY Advanced-300?
A complete and thorough program that not only provides you with all of the requirements to become certified at the 500hr level, but helps you advance and refine your skills as a teacher.
When the truth is known ignorance cannot be, when the mind is pure there is no disease, when the breath is mastered there is no death, therefore, surrender to Yoga. Krishnamacharya
If your interest is primarily to immerse yourself in yoga, select either of the 10 day immersions. If your goal is to become nationally certified with Yoga Alliance at the 500hr level you must already be certified at the 200hr level (RYT-200), complete the two 10-day advanced immersions (Courses C and D – can be taken in any order) attend the required workshop weekend (comprising 3 workshops included in your tuition – details) and complete some additional assignments. This amounts to 300+hrs of Yoga Alliance approved teacher training to enable RYT-200 teachers to upgrade their accreditation to RYT-500. You may begin in winter or summer and finish in summer or winter respectively. This approach enables you to use the intervening time to absorb the training and begin to apply it in your classes.
When you have completed your hours you will receive a certificate. Simply send a copy of your certification to Yoga Alliance to become upgraded to a Registered Yoga Teacher at the 500-level.
