300 Hr.Teacher Training Programs

The 200-hour program is the first step on your yoga journey of discovering, sharing, and teaching. Your next step is the 300-hour program which offers an opportunity to take your learning, leadership, and teaching to the next level. The 300- Hour modules are more in-depth at every level, and offer styles of yoga not offered in the 200-hour certification (such as Yin and Restorative Yoga).  Other comprehensive topics include Leadership Training, Advanced Coaching and Feedback, Assisting with Confidence, and Advanced Yoga Anatomy.  You will also dive deeper into the philosophy of yoga, and learn skillful techniques for sharing the aspects of yoga that speak to your heart, including community outreach to those who are underserved.

Each module is in an immersion format offered Friday night through Sunday afternoon (with occasional 4-day modules), and are led by Vicki Rioux Rickard and Jean Rioux  - instructors with over 25 years of combined experience in mentoring, coaching, and empowering students and teachers.
