300 hour Teacher Training Programme

As of 2020/21 The Advanced Course (300 hrs) will be offered as the 200 hour teacher training programme plus a series of Intensive 5 day retreat Modules (see below). These additional modules may be taken the year that follows the 200 hour TTC.  The programme is made up of 7 obligatory weekend modules, a retreat examination period & 2 further retreat modules of 5 days long out of the 4 offered. Self-study is also part of this programme.

You have a certified Yoga teaching qualification (200 + hours), you are already teaching, you have a serious regular practice- the 300 hours offers you a module based programme that allows you to deepen your practice and your range of teaching tools and knowledge.  Vous avez une certification en tant que professeur de yoga déjà (200+ heures), vous enseignez déjà, la formation 300 heures vous offre une formation à base de modules retraite et weekend.

The 300 hour TTC is open to all yogis with a regular practice as well as teachers of yoga and it is based on the ShivaShakti 200hrs programme with an extra examination element and 100 additional training hours choosing from two out of four retreat options – Pillars of Femininity, Elements, Energies and Chakras, Lunar Restore & Hormonal Rebalancing and Doshic Alignment through yoga. These four retreat options can also be taken individually as an additional yoga Teacher Training module or as part of the 300 hour programme (certified by the International Yoga Alliance).

Modules are based around the notions of:

  • Foundations of a Fluid Practice – the ShivaShakti methodology around harmonising elements & movements of energy
  • Earth & Lunar Elements – Rooting to Rise, Nourishment for body & soul
  • Creative Fluidity – Encouraging the inner liquid to flow freely
  • Solar & Fire forces – Igniting the inner fire & harnessing power
  • Lightness & Space – Air & Ether
  • Doshic Balancing – using Ayurvedic teachings & integrating them into your yoga practice for balance & harmony
