IAM Yoga 300 Hour Advanced Teacher Training

About This Event

To understand the future of Yoga, you first have to become deeply intimate with not only an advanced understanding of its origins, but also a critical understanding of the present state of the tradition and how this will influence the future of this rich practice. As a result this training begins with an in-depth study of Yoga History & Philosophy. You will critically examine how Yoga relates to modern issues of oppression, sexuality, power structures, meaning structures, psychological stability, and mental health. You will study neuro-anatomy as it relates to mindfulness practices like Yoga and Meditation, which will encourage you to deeply explore the role of yoga in developing and maintaining optimal mental health. You will also explore Trauma Sensitive Yoga protocols as well as “Mindfulness Studies” as they relate to the development of meaning in life, flow states, and “enlightenment.”
This training will provide you with a contemporary “Operating Manual” for the relationship between your mind and body; you will emerge from this training with a new perspective on what it means to practice and teach yoga in the modern world. You will explore advanced sequencing techniques, advanced anatomy, as well as the role of the Yoga Teacher, and you will be provided with the necessary experiential and research-based tools and education that will foster the spiritual and moral growth that is critical in the development of any serious student or teacher.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

My inspiration is a desire to gain a deeper connection to and understanding of myself, something that I've been working hard on for so long and will continue to do in the future. I view a retreat as a wonderful way to focus entirely on this without the distractions of every day life! Nicola

Retreat Guru's Vision

Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
