Tough Love Yoga 300 Hour Advanced Teacher Training

Tough Love Yoga's 300-hour Advanced teacher training is designed for 200-hour certified teachers who wish to dive deeper into the art and science of practicing and teaching yoga. Ideal candidates are passionate about asana, have a deep desire to expand and refine their teaching skill set, are interested in diving deep into yoga philosophy, and wish to immerse themselves in a supportive community of learning, transformation, and growth. 

Topics covered in this training include:

  • Functional Anatomy
  • Biomechanics
  • Universal Principles of Alignment and Action
  • Principles of backbends, forward bends, arm balances, twists, and inversions
  • Sequencing strategies for everything from vinyasa flow to basic, intermediate, and advanced hatha yoga classes and workshops
  • Prenatal Yoga
  • Yoga mythology and philosophy through the lens of the Gods and Goddesses, crazy wisdom teachers, and yogic texts
  • Pranayama, mantra, puja, and meditation techniques
  • Practical Sanskrit
  • Teaching Ethics & Taking the seat of the teacher
  • Teaching methodology, including modules on verbal skills, observation, demonstration, order of operations, prep and pose, and more
  • Verbal and hands-on adjustments
  • Creativity and Consistency
  • Business of Yoga
  • yogahour teaching technology and methodology
    •  This training provides a comprehensive exploration and integration of yogahour® teaching technologies, which were developed by Darren Rhodes, to bridge the gap between flow and form in a wide range of class settings. These 300-hour, expert level tools provide teachers with a deep understanding of how to use shape, safety (strength), and refinement (stretch) instructions skillfully and strategically to help students practice asana more safely, efficiently, and effectively. These teaching technologies combined with functional anatomy, observation, demonstration, and adjustment modules will offer trainees the opportunity to learn more about the "hows" and "whys" of the poses and gain the skills necessary to add clarity, depth, and precision to their instruction.
  • Considerations and strategies for teaching trauma-sensitive yoga
    • Cultivate Resilience: This weekend immersion with Rachelle Knowles supports yoga instructors in creating trauma aware spaces. Through movement, lecture, discussion, and personal inquiry, we will explore the following topics: trauma, oppression and domination, self observation, personal responsibility, the wisdom of nature, and healing. Information will be shared within the scope and context of leading a yoga class in a studio or in the community. This offering is open to all levels of yoga teachers, new and seasoned.

Tough Love Yoga is a Registered Yoga School (RYS 300) through the Yoga Alliance. This 300-Hour Teacher Training is a registered program with the Yoga Alliance and will give trainees the requirements, along with your previous 200-hour Yoga Alliance registered teacher training, to apply as a 500-hour Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance (RYT-500). Yogahour certification is not a requirement to apply for our 300-Hour program. 

Training will be taught by TLY founder and yogahour teacher trainer Neda Honarvar (E-RYT 500) and guest instructors including Darren Rhodes (E-RYT 500, Founder of yogahour), Brigette Finley (E-RYT 500, Director of yogahour), Sam Rice (E-RYT 500, Lead Teacher Trainer for yogahour), Rachelle Knowles (E-RYT 200 and Founder of Cultivate Union), and more.
