SADHANA 300-HR ADVANCED TEACHER TRAINING

with DIANE MALASPINA, M.S.Ed., Ph.D, e-RYT500 

The Sadhana 300-hr Advanced Teacher Training explores the depths of the 8-limbs of the philosophy & practice of yoga and develops the skills of a teacher as a leader in the community. It is designed to take your practice and teaching to new levels of effectiveness and power. The Sadhana 300-hr Advanced Teacher Training is an integrative and innovative program that combines the latest research on anatomy and physiology as it relates to yoga interventions, teaching methodology, eastern philosophy, and in-depth training in yoga styles beyond vinyasa flow. The training is designed for teachers to emerge as more confident leaders; knowledgeable, compassionate, and connected to service in the field of teaching yoga.

 

The program is led and developed by Diane Malaspina, Ph.D. psychologist and senior teacher with Yoga Medicine. Additional faculty members and guest presenters will be woven into select modules over the course of the program. There is an optional elective module to apprentice under a Yoga Source Mentor at Yoga Source in Richmond, VA. 

 

Each module is experiential, hands-on, in-depth, and emphasizes new techniques to add to your teaching repertoire. Modern science in biomechanics and somatic studies will be blended with the ancient wisdom and practices of yoga. Students will gain direct experience with the material and explore the deeper dimensions of what it means to be a teacher and to serve as leaders and teachers of teachers in the community. 

This training can be taken from start to finish for yoga teachers pursuing the 300-hr track of advanced training. And, for 200-hr yoga teachers and serious students wanting to continue their education, you will have the option to attend modules a la carte. A Continuing Education certificate will be issued after the completion of each module (+ homework assignment) for those wanting CEUs which can be submitted to the National Yoga Alliance for credit. The same process applies for those working towards the 300-hr certification requirements. 

 

Upon completion of the training, teachers will have the skills to teach group classes, privates, workshops, and trainings that are artfully sequenced, full of expertise on the body and healing, and that move people to find their optimal state of wellness in body, mind, and spirit.
