300 hour Yoga Teacher Training

This is an advanced teacher training program for dedicated trainees who wish to refine and deepen their studentship and teaching practice. The program intensifies and enriches participants’ current understanding of Yoga, Ayurveda, Yoga philosophy, anatomy and teaching skills.

The training also includes several specialized modules which elevate our graduates above other programs, such as Chair Yoga, the Art of Assisting, Biotensegrity, Yin Yoga, Trauma-informed Yoga, Yoga Nidra and Pranayama.

Participants can enroll for specific modules to get YACEP certified in Yin, Restorative or Ayurveda or complete the entire program to receive a 300 Hour Yoga Alliance designated certificate.

Both Intensive and Modular options are available – in other words students can complete the full program or pick and choose the modules as is convenient. However, you save approx. $1500 by doing the Intensive Program each month, which you can start at any time. If you cannot attend the consecutive intensive training, there will be a $100 change fee to attend the next one.

All of our programs are Yoga Alliance registered. You will receive a complete Yoga Alliance 300 hour certification upon completion. And all modules qualify for YACEP hours separately.

  • $100 administrative fee
  • a completed registration form
  • an interview with one of our team
  • minimum age is 17 with a parent/guardian’s signature

*The full 300 hour program requires the completion of a 200 hour yoga teacher training program with either Whole Body Paradigm School of Yoga or an approved school.
Individual modules do not require a 200 hour yoga teacher training certification but it is recommended.

If you cannot attend some days in the schedule, you are still required to fulfill those hours in one of three ways. You can attend the subsequent module in the future with a $100 change fee. You can make up the time in a private session at a reduced teacher’s fee of $75/hour. There may be some curriculum that can be viewed in the live recorded sessions in which you will answer questions after at a $25/session fee for administrative time and marking.

Scholarships and bursaries are available if we have enough students in training. Payment plans are available. Request our application form wholebodyparadigm@gmail.com

We keep our training cohorts small – usually around 6-16 students.

We do not lecture or sit for long periods of time. We believe in an equity-based classroom. We are trained with Masters in Education & Pedagogy for a more embodied and creative learning environment.

We are actively working to decolonize yoga and create inclusive and trauma-informed spaces. We are LGBTQ-friendly, pro-diversity in body, mind and ability.

Yes, we have further Mentorship opportunities to keep you growing both as a teacher and a student. Some students come as assistants in further training. Some students want to delve into a certain area with a certain teacher. We have 5 & 10 session packages for personal mentorship.

Sometimes when we partner with a studio, you will receive a pass for their regular classes. Often, we will give free classes and workshops or updated .pdf manuals to graduates. We are building a video recorded library of programming for your viewing.
We care deeply about the participants and the program so we take care to make sure you are ready for this transformation.

If you have more questions, email us. We can set up a time to talk or email you the relevant information.
