300 Hour Modular

Teacher Training

Deepen Your Practice, Expand Your Teaching & Transform Your Life

with Christy Marsden & Nicole Eber

 

Module 1 Begins June 2018!

This 300 hour in-depth, non-dogmatic & non-style specific training combines Eastern and Western teachings to prepare you with the tools necessary to teach inspiring classes while elevating your own development. This training will give you an extensive set of skills and insights to bring into your personal practice and into your teaching. The deeper aspects of this training are not about an advanced asana practice but rather the focus is on developing a greater understanding of how to effectively teach to the student in front of you.

The training is broken down into 4 week long modules (STRENGTHEN, NOURISH, ELEVATE & OFFER) that you have up to 4 years to complete. You may do them in any order except for Module 4 OFFER which has a prerequisite of Module 1 STRENGTHEN and Module 3 ELEVATE.

Module 2 NOURISH your soul retreat for teachers can be done at any time!

All Modules are open to anyone who has completed a 200 hour yoga teacher training, even if you are not sure you want to pursue the 300 hour certification at this point.  You can always change your mind!

All 4 modules must be taken for 300 Hour certification (which can then be combined with a Yoga Alliance 200 hour registration for a 500 hour registration with Yoga Alliance if desired).

 

Module 1:
STRENGTHEN – refine what you know
June 10th- 16th, 2018*
Yoga Blend, Burbank, CA

Check in and get ready to deepen your knowledge and understanding of the holistic practice of Yoga through an extensive look at the Philosophy of Yoga including the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. Advance your teaching with practical refinements that includes language, cueing, sequencing and overall presence that move beyond the every day teaching to reflect wisdom and clarity.  This Module is a prerequisite to Module 4, OFFER.

Cost: $900
($450 non-refundable deposit holds your space, balance due by 5/10/18)

Module 2:
NOURISH – feed your soul retreat
August 5th-11th, 2018
Nashville, TN

One of the biggest challenges great teachers face is burnout. This week is designed for you, the yoga teacher.  Of course you may want to share what you learn in this nurturing and transformative week with your students but the focus of this training is all about taking care of you. Immerse yourself in a yogic lifestyle to learn practical tools for maintaining self care while developing and sustaining a personal practice so you can consistently nourish yourself and joyfully teach others from a place of grounded inspiration and holistic health. There are no prerequisites for this module so it may be taken at any time.

Cost: $1800*
*Cost includes training, food, lodging and use of spa facilities for the week in Nashville, TN
($900 non-refundable deposit saves your space; balance due 7/5/18)

Space is very limited for this training retreat so we recommend booking early!  

Our intention is to offer this training in other locations in the future for those unable to travel to the South.  Stay tuned!

 

Module 3:
ELEVATE – take it to the next level
October 7th-13th, 2018*
Yoga Blend, Burbank, CA

Expand your teaching through an in-depth exploration into Eastern Energetic Anatomy and Western Practical Anatomy to create a well-rounded experience for your students. Further advance your “eye” as a teacher being able to see beyond the obvious and relate how anatomy affects asana and learn effective modifications. Deeply study differences in people and their structure to further inform how to sequence, align and adjust with intelligence. Explore Ayurveda and the Psycho-Physio relationship of yoga, food and digestion to grow your understanding of yoga and its application to our every day lives so that you can offer greater tools and support to your students.  This Module is a prerequisite to Module 4, OFFER.

Cost: $900
($450 non-refundable deposit saves your space! Balance due by 9/7/18)

Yogablend: 50 Hour Immersion

Deepen Your Yoga:
4 Weekend Immersion

with Christy Marsden, Nicole Eber & Bekah Turner

2018 Immersion is complete. Please check back for details on when the next one will begin!

Yoga is an ancient and powerful system for greater health, focus and transformation. Most students come to their first yoga class because they are seeking a physical practice, mental release or spiritual teaching; and they find that it is all of this and more. However, it can be challenging to delve deeply into the yogic teachings in a one hour class a few days a week. If you are someone who loves yoga, wants to know more and would like to take your practice to the next level; physically, mentally and spiritually, then this immersion may be for you.

*This program can be used as part of the Yoga Blend 200 Hour Level 1 Teacher Training or on it’s own. If you sign up for the teacher training, the immersion is included or you can sign up for just the immersion and if you decide you want to continue, you can choose to join the teacher training before it starts.
