Course guide

250 Hour Level 1 - Advanced Yoga Teacher Trainer (YTT)

Module 1. Foundation of anatomy

Module 1 is where you will learn about our vision, mission and expectations, as well as the foundations of anatomy,
physiology, biomechanics, Yoga history, philosophy and ethics. The core elements of THE YOGA METHOD’s class structure will also be explored with the start of our breathing, meditation and journaling practices.   

Module 2. Flexion | Back Body Opening

What are the elements that create a great yoga class? The foundation of a Yoga practice begins with Sun Salutations, Standing Asanas, Ujjayi Breathing, Drishti and Bandhas. A deeper exploration of the Science of Stretching creates foundational knowledge for safe classes. We also delve into the 8-Limbs of the Yoga Sutras beginning with the Yamas, as well as the Science of Positive Psychology. Practice teaching begins, meditation practice continues as does journaling for self-exploration.

Module 3. Lateral Flexion | Side Body Opening

In Module 3, we explore the qualities and characteristics that make a great teacher. We dive deeper into the 8-Limbs with the Niyamas set against the Science of Habits. Asanas practice will focus on the shared anatomical and alignment principles and their contraindications. Seated Asanas will be studied and our Pranayama practice explores Nadi Shodhana as well as the energetic anatomy behind it. Practice teaching continues with a focus on sequencing and cueing.

Module 4. Extension | Front Body Opening

In Module 4, we will concentrate on how to craft inclusive classes, create community, and build a business. Our Yoga Sutras' studies will focus on the Pranayama and the Science of Breathing. In addition, Pratyahara and Dharana will be looked at alongside the Science of Focus and Presence. Asana practice will focus on the research behind balance, backbends, and inversions. We will also look at modifications and contradictions, as well as adjustments and assists.

Module 5. Rotation | Twists

Professionalism and your ethical commitment as a Yoga teacher will be covered in Module 5, as will diversity, equity and your scope of practice. We continue with the 8-Limbs as we move into the Dhyana and the Science of Meditation. Meditation methods, mantras and mudras will also be explored. As well, Samadhi will be studied in conjunction with the Science of Hope and Happiness. Class sequencing and practice teaching then become our main focus as we draw near to the end of the course.

Module 6. The 5-Day Retreat | Integration & Celebration

Our 5-day retreat is an amazing opportunity to completely step out of your life and fully immerse yourself into the lifestyles, teachings and practice of Yoga and the Science of Celebration. This retreat is designed to facilitate the integration and solidification of all you have been learning. Our final day will be one of reflection, culminating in a graduation celebration.

How good at yoga do i need to be do this course?

Yoga is so much more than a physical practice! This course is for anyone with a genuine interest and passion for yoga. You do not need to be able to levity, meditate or even touch your toes, but we do ask that you have been practising yoga for at least one year. Why? Yoga is an experiential wisdom tradition, and your experience as a student is essential for your authenticity and success as a teacher.                                                                       

How many fridays can i miss or if something comes up?

Students are able to miss 2 full days of the course and still qualify for certification. It is not possible to ‘make up’ days, but students can still do the online component and complete their weekly quizzes and assignments.

do I have to do yoga while studying?

As part of your training, you will be required to attend two classes a week taught by our Lead Trainer (live or virtually). This will help you become more familiar with THE YOGA METHOD style and integrate what you're learning in the classroom into your personal practice. Additionally, we encourage you to complete a third class weekly, either at any studio or through a virtual teacher. This exposure to different teachers, class types, techniques, and approaches will enhance your teaching skills and help you refine your own unique style.
