300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training

with Christy Marsden, E-RYT 500

Transform your life & help others do the same!


A 7 month, non-dogmatic & non-style specific holistic training combining Eastern and Western teachings to prepare teachers with the tools necessary to transform their own life and help their students do the same.  Although asana will be explored, this course is not focused on the most advanced yoga poses.  Asana is but one small piece of the entire yogic puzzle and will be presented as it relates to each topic as well as group and individualized teaching. Any physical abilities, including limitations and injuries are welcome in this course.

Open to 200 hour registered yoga teachers (RYT-200) wishing to add 300 hours of advanced training for a 500 hour designation (RYT-500) with Yoga Alliance.  

*Christy, owner of Yoga Blend in Burbank, CA since 2005,  has been teaching for 22 years, certifying 200 hour teachers since 2007 and 300 hour teachers since 2012.  Her deepest joy lies in helping others to discover their authentic voice, live a more joyful life and share their passion successfully with the world on the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual levels. She is committed to holding a safe space for people to transform their lives while guiding them to help others do the same.
