300-Hour Advanced Teacher Training with Colleen Saidman Yee and Rodney Yee

Yoga Shanti Tribeca, New York, NY

This Advanced Teacher Training comprises five independent 50-hour modules. The Yoga Shanti 300-hour advanced training builds upon and deepens the trainee’s understanding of the fundamental concepts of the practice and teaching of yoga that are taught at the 200-hour level. A 300-hour advanced training prepares you to teach principles and techniques of yoga that are more advanced, detailed, and subtle. It also enables you to teach with greater skill than could be reasonably cultivated from a 200-hour teacher training.

The groups will be intimate, allowing for plenty of individual attention and mentorship. We will guide you in establishing a strong foundation for a lifelong study of yoga. Curriculum will include a deeper look into your daily home practice of asana, pranayama, and meditation; teaching skills including sequencing, seeing and understanding bodies, manual adjusting and assisting; anatomy, philosophy, and chanting.

Together, we’ll examine the principles of Shanti-style sequencing in a range of categories; explore an advanced syllabus of yoga asana and philosophy; and look more deeply at seeing and understanding bodies in order to practice a wider range of hands-on adjustments. Join us on a journey that will expand your mind, deepen your practice, free your breath, and inspire your teaching! A New Format: this new five-module structure offers two exciting opportunities:

  • Sign up for the entire course and receive your 300-hour certification.

  • Or, sign up on a module by module basis (a la carte) and study specifically what interests you most.

The five modules that comprise our 300-hour advanced training can be taken in any order, and/or as stand alone independent 50-hour courses for students with no intention of matriculating to the 300-hour advanced teacher training program. Click any module title below for more information.

50-Hour Yoga Shanti Advanced Yoga Teacher Training with Colleen and Rodney

The Sanctuary Yoga Room, Fort Worth, TX

Therapeutics, Restorative, and Anatomy 50-Hour Advanced Training Module YS304 (Accruable to 300 Hrs). This advanced training with Colleen Saidman and Rodney Yee will focus on pranayama, sequencing, manual adjustments, and practice teaching. All sessions will be led by Colleen and Rodney and all classes will be held at The Sanctuary Yoga Room in Fort Worth, TX. Class size is limited. Students must have completed a 200-hour training and are expected to have a daily home practice.

In this module we will address the deeper fundamentals of common areas of difficulties in the body such as shoulders, wrists, elbows, lower back, hips, knees and ankles and how they are all interrelated. We will also study the energetics of these common areas of complaint. We will look at the integration of the body in movement.

In our perspective, restorative poses are the foundation for both pranayama and yoga therapeutics. When one can release deeply, the natural breath is more prominent and the body-mind comes into its optimum healing condition. Looking at the body from both western anatomy and yoga anatomy, we study a unique point of view that will give us an effective way to start studying and applying yoga therapeutics.

Immersing into the emotional component of our beings and how it is effected by the yoga practice will also be taught and explored. Using sequencing of poses and restorative poses in combination with different meditations and pranayama, we will sense the five sheaths of the yoga body (physical, pranic, mental, wisdom and bliss). Come join us in the ever magical mystery tour of yourselves!
