340 HOUR ADVANCED VINYASA YOGA TEACHER TRAINING
Completion of the Atman Yoga School® 340 Hour Advanced Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training, combined with a previous 200 hour training, will allow a teacher to register with the Yoga Alliance at the RYT 500 level. Some previous 200 Hour training certificates will qualify for admission into the full AYS 340 Hour Advanced Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training, but if the training was completed in a style other than vinyasa (Ashtanga, Iyengar, Yin & Yang, Mediyoga, Kundalini, Mixed Style, etc.), then a student must complete our 5 day Intensive Vinyasa Teacher Training program prior to enrolling in the 340 Hour Advanced Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training. The 5 day Intensive is our Bridge Training.
The Bridge Training is designed to be a crash-course in teaching vinyasa yoga, and to learn the Atman Yoga School® teaching style and teaching philosophy, in order for students to get the most out of their advanced training. If students/teachers wish to take Modules 2 or 3 independently, then this requirement is waived, but students will be ineligible to practice teach and recieve feedback from Lead Teachers during Modules 2 or 3. If a student wishes to take Module 1 independently, then the Bridge Training is still required. Please contact us with any questions regarding this requirement at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Atman Yoga School® 340 hour advanced power vinyasa training is centered around three pillars of study and experiential learning, and deepens a students’ knowledge of the ancient practices of yoga, ayurveda, and yoga philosophy while simultaneously preparing a teacher for a successful teaching career. The three pillars of the 340 hour training are: Advanced Teaching Techniques, Traditional Studies + Ayurveda, and Meditation Practices. All students are required to submit a thesis paper on a subject related to yoga to qualify for graduation.
We offer our Advanced Training in 3 Modules, with each module organized as a ten day intensive in Oslo, Norway. Students are welcome to take an individual module as a stand-alone experience to deepen their knowledge and teaching skills, but students must complete all three modules to earn a 340 Hour Advanced Certificate from the Atman Yoga School® and to be eligible to register with the Yoga Alliance at the 500 RYT level.
