300-Hour Yoga Teacher Training

S01-YA-SCHOOL-RYS-300At the 200-hour level, you’ve gained the confidence and basic skills you need to begin teaching, and now it’s time to take the next step. But you have a busy life–teaching, working, mom-ing. You’d love to run away to Bali and immerse yourself in yoga training, but let’s face it, that just not realistic.

You’re looking for not only more knowledge about philosophy, postures & prana, but some real world guidance in the particulars of earning a bigger paycheck. Perhaps you’re not 100% of what that looks like, but it’s getting harder to ignore the persistent tugging of your heart.

If that sounds like you, you’re ready to embark on a journey into self-discovery while refining your talents as a yoga teacher. By completing both your 200-hour and 300-hour training, you’ll earn a 500-hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Certification.

The Purple Lotus Yoga 300-hour program lasts for twelve months and focuses on philosophy, the more therapeutic styles of hatha yoga such as yin, restorative, chair, and Thai yoga. Round out your education with Eastern and Western Anatomy, Ayurveda, and Biz & Marketing Basics.
