300 Hour Advanced Holistic Teacher Training & Continuing Education

Transform your life & help others do the same!

with Christy Marsden, E-RYT 500

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.  Also open to all yoga teachers who would like continuing education on any of the topics offered.

The training is non-dogmatic & non-style specific 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 module as well as group and individualized teaching. Any physical abilities, including limitations and injuries are welcome in this course. 

The training is made up of 7, 4 day modules (Thur-Sun) of 35 hours each over the course of 1 year plus monthly mentorship sessions.  All 7 modules and at least 9 mentorship sessions are required for 300 hour certification.  Module 7 has multiple options with different teachers from which to choose according to your interests.   All 7 modules can be completed in one year or taken over time according to your schedule and budget.  The modules may be taken in any order.  You have up to 3 years to complete all 7 modules and 9 mentorship sessions for the 300 hour certification.

*Christy, owner of Yoga Blend in Burbank, CA since 2005,  has been teaching for 21 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 in helping others do the same.
