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. 

Through this training, we'll cover intermediate and advanced sequencing strategies for everything from vinyasa flow to basic, intermediate, and advanced hatha yoga classes. This training also 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.

Yoga mythology and philosophy through the lens of the Gods and Goddesses will guide the theme of each weekend. This includes corresponding lectures, reading and journal assignments, and the study and practice of everything from foundational to advanced pranayama, mantra, puja, and meditation techniques. 

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, founder of yogahour and more.
