300-HR Advanced Teacher Training Modules

Required Curriculum, 300 Hours

Thank you for contemplating MokSana's 300-hour Advanced Teacher Training Program. We welcome new and active teachers who have completed any 200-hour program recognized by the Yoga Alliance to continue your journey on your teaching path with us.

 

Our 300hr Advanced TTP aims to guide current teachers to:

 

  • refine teaching skills in a variety of styles and approaches including Yogahour™, Vinyasa, Yin, Yoga Nidra, Restorative, Trauma-Informed, and Prenatal

  • explore and define one's purpose on the teaching path

  • deepen knowledge of anatomy, functional movement, energetics, philosophy, history, ethics, and business

  • contend with past, current and future challenges in the vast realm of yoga

  • inspire the endless journey towards becoming A Transcendent Teacher.

 

Our flexible program consists of 150 hours of Core Modules plus 150 hours of Elective Modules. All of our modules can be taken in any order, though our Core Modules are inspired by upward rising of the Chakras. Students can work at their own pace to complete the program within 4 years.
