Advanced Vinyasa Teacher Training Curriculum

If you are an RYT-200 certified vinyasa yoga teacher and are looking to take your teaching to the next level, this program is designed for you.  Join SPY's senior teachers for this 100 hour program designed to teach you the skills to go from good to great. This program involves training, coaching, and self-inquiry.

This program is not about learning sanskrit, studying lots of ancient texts, or deconstructing each asana, you did this in Yoga 101 or your previous yoga certification program. In this program we will engage in self-study and do lots of practice teaching. This program will train you to be a great teacher - which means you are an inspiration to your students, you see your students as higher beings, and hold up the mirror of insight for them. Your own practice and self-study are essential in this journey. True teaching comes from the heart and not from the head. To teach in this manner you will need to get out of your head and learn to tap into your own higher being.

You will learn:

    •    a powerful vinyasa method suitable for teaching all levels of students
    •    how to lose the script and teach with your own authentic voice
    •    how to bring your own inner wisdom to your teaching
    •    how to give and receive feedback
    •    how to empower your students and help them reach their personal potential

This program is based upon the Baptiste Power Vinyasa method but is suitable for any power/vinyasa teacher hoping to master the art of teaching with ease, from the heart.

Program participants will be required to attend all weekends and practice teach with their peers between the scheduled weekend sessions.
