The 300 Hour Teacher Training Programme
The Advanced Course (300 hrs) will be offered as a series of Intensive Modules that run roughly every two – three months and can be taken over a 2 year period to complete the 300 hour programme. The programme is made up of 3 obligatory retreat modules & 1 further optional retreat module of 4-5 days long and / or a series of weekend training courses (some obligatory & some you select as your optional modules) & a Teacher Assessment weekend. Self-Study is also part of this programme.
The modules on this 300 hour Program will open to all. You can attend retreats and weekend workshops to deepen your practice – you should already have a reasonably regular practice & a desire to learn more & go deeper, these are not for beginners to yoga- & you may receive a certificate for additional yoga teacher training.
The 300 hour TTC is open to Registered Yoga Teachers qualified either from the ShivaShakti 200hrs programme or from other schools with equivalent level of certification (200hrs) and Advanced students of Yoga (with a minimum of three years established practice) who which to enjoy some additional training.
Each module will count individually as an additional yoga Teacher Training module and collectively as part of the 300 hour programme (certified by the International Yoga Alliance). More information & dates on this programme will follow very shortly as it is currently being created & accredited.
