About This Program

Colleen and Rodney are excited to offer a 300-Hour Advanced Teacher Training Program this upcoming Winter/Spring in their hometown of Sag Harbor, New York.

A 300-hour advanced training builds upon and deepens the trainee’s understanding of the fundamental concepts of the practice and teaching of yoga that are taught at the 200-hour level. A 300-hour advanced training prepares you to teach principles and techniques of yoga that are more advanced, more detailed, and subtler. It also enables you to teach with greater skill than could be reasonably cultivated from just a 200-hour teacher training.

The group will be intimate, allowing for plenty of individual attention and mentorship. We will 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.

Between sessions, students are expected to maintain a daily home practice consisting of asana, pranayama, and meditation. In addition, students are required to keep a daily practice journal, meet with your assigned mentor, attend a specified number of public yoga classes, including supervised assisting and observing, and complete written homework assignments and required readings.

Join us on the Yoga Train for a ride that will expand your mind, deepen your practice, free your breath, and inspire your teaching!

This teacher training is designed for students who have already completed a 200-hour program, and are looking to dive deeper into their study of yoga and further their teaching skill set. Together, we will work on enriching and strengthening your personal home practice. We’ll examine the principles of Shanti-style sequencing in a range of categories; explore an advanced syllabus of yoga asana; and look more deeply at seeing and understanding bodies to practice a wider range of hands-on adjustments.


Tuition for this program is $4500.
