Overview: Aim, Key & Purpose

The aim of this Advanced Yoga TT curriculum is to give the continuing teacher, as well as highly interested practitioner, a thorough exposure to both ancient and modern aspects and insights of yoga. It is based on years of study in both practice and intensive research. Centered Yoga began offering advanced training courses in 2004 with a thorough, updated, and informative curriculum now available from 2023 on.

The key to the Advanced Yoga TT curriculum is found in six core courses and three Know-the-Breath courses. Each course delivers 100-hours of Advanced credit hours towards the Yoga Alliance 300-hour level and beyond, while also giving Continuing Education Credits to interested students. As such, these programs are open to all interested and sincere students, whether teaching or not, adding the minimum of 300 hours and up to 900 hours of training.

300-hours Advanced Curriculum

The purpose of these courses is to deepen in your understanding of yoga through direct personal experience and enhanced learning, while increasing your teaching qualification. A focus on practice ensures Prānāyāma is both begun and developed effectively, as āsana and kriyas continue, while key knowledge in anatomy and physiology, philosophy, and other related areas are presented.

We provide the setting to optimally support your body and mind so the time invested in your training is most beneficial and personally rewarding.

ATT-300-hours-and-RYT-500-level

A guide of how to complete your ATT 300-hours and apply for the RYT-500 level

  • Complete your 200-hour YTT – this can be done through Centered Yoga or elsewhere.
  • Choose three of the core 100-hour ATT courses to complete at Samahita over a 1 to 3 year period. You can follow one of our suggested course paths, or choose whichever three of the core 100-hour courses align to you and your interests.
  • Add your 300-hours ATT to your already completed 200-hour YTT to be eligible to apply for Yoga Alliance’s RYT-500 (you will also be asked to prove 100-hours of teaching experience). The 300-hour minimum of Advanced courses must be completed at one dedicated yoga school. In this case, all three 100-hour modules must be completed with Centered Yoga at Samahita Retreat.
  • There is no application form to complete – just book your place on each course in the year they are offered. Once you have completed the required courses we will confirm your 300-hours and double-check your 200-hour YTT certificate. We can then officially issue you the ATT 300-hour certificate.

Why Continue to Study?

While professional organizations, such as Centered Yoga and Yoga Alliance, require continuing education for teachers, we hope you choose to take these courses out of a sincere and genuine interest in learning rather than obligation or necessity. If you put your growth and development first, everything else follows easily and automatically, even any requirements you may need for certification.

Paul's Word

The yoga path and continued learning

The yoga path is continuous. To grow in your practice, some focused time in the study under proper guidance is essential. The Advanced Yoga Teacher Training courses serve as part of this continuing education by covering specific subject matter in depth, furthering practice, and offering the opportunity for you to spend time in direct contact with your teacher(s).

We are always students, whether teaching or not. A teacher must engage in ongoing study, as well as cultivate growth in his or her daily practice. Personal retreats, away from your daily routines, are also helpful because the practice and teachings take time to really sink in and have their impact.

The deeper we grow ourselves, the better a service we can offer our students. But we’re also on a path inward in our own growth. For me, as a student, and then as a teacher, I have always put the time in study and growth first. Every year, I take time to study, be inspired and grow. Studying keeps alive that lifeline to the teachings, so they can penetrate me deeper. This way I stay fresh; I stay open.

Even if you do not teach, time to go further in a focused way is the key to growth. With this in mind, we offer a variety of on-going courses in an ideal setting. Immersing yourself in an environment charged with the energy and enthusiasm of others, and being exposed to the full-on guidance of the teachers, will reveal a clear path to your personal development and transformation.

I have watched this myself as I have embraced the path over the years. These courses and the special environment we try to cultivate are a deliberate attempt to duplicate that experience and to encourage others to keep growing and teaching better.
