About This Program

The Yoga Shanti 300-hour advanced training builds upon and deepens the trainee’s understanding of the fundamental concepts of the practice and teaching of yoga—preparing the trainee to teach principles and techniques of yoga that are more advanced, detailed and subtle, and with greater skill than could be reasonably cultivated from a 200-hour teacher training. The training will take place in Tribeca beginning February 22nd 2020.

The Format

The training groups are intimate, allowing for plenty of individual attention and mentorship. Senior teachers guide you in establishing a strong foundation for a lifelong study of yoga. Curriculum will include a deeper look into your daily home practice of asana, pranayama, and meditation; teaching skills including sequencing, seeing and understanding bodies, manual adjusting and assisting; anatomy, philosophy, and chanting.

Together, we’ll examine the principles of Shanti-style sequencing in a range of categories; explore an advanced syllabus of yoga asana and philosophy; and look more deeply at seeing and understanding bodies in order to practice a wider range of hands-on adjustments. Join us on a journey that will expand your mind, deepen your practice, free your breath, and inspire your teaching!

Note: Students can take the program on a participation basis only, but if you are taking the program for accreditation, you’ll be required to do an additional 20 hours of work outside class. This will consist of selected mentors meetings, readings, writings, logs of your daily practice, class observation logs and the creation of sequences. Other assignments may be added at the teacher’s discretion.


  • YS301: Sequencing and Manual Adjustments/Seeing and Understanding Bodies
  • YS302: Refining Teaching, Safe Vinyasa Flow and Teaching of Specific Shanti-Style Classes
  • YS303: Pranayama, Bandhas, Philosophy and History
  • YS304: Therapeutics, Restorative and Anatomy
  • YS305: Vinyasa Flow, Arm Balances, Hip Openers and Inversions
