The Yoga Integrated Science 300 hour yoga teacher training certification has been designed to build upon the content of a traditional 200 hour teacher training course. Our program is focused on the anatomy and physiology of the human body. Students will little to no foundation in anatomy may want to take the introductory anatomy classes offered in the Yoga Integrated Science teacher training program before beginning this course. Our goal with this program is to produce yoga teachers with a superior working knowledge of how a yoga pose impacts a student so that they might be more mindful in their leadership.
Part I: The Required Courses
The required coursework section of the 300 hour yoga teacher training certification course takes the same format as our 200 hour yoga teacher certification program. There are 7 courses, each scheduled one weekend a month for 7 months.
This required block of courses covers the anatomy of the human body in detail. We will focus on the mechanics of the skeletal and muscle systems as they interact with joints and movement. Students will be learning how to apply the knowledge acquired in these courses in the individual electives taken in Part II of this course.
