300 Hour Extended Programs

The SOYA Extended RYT300® Hour Advanced Upgrade program is held in Fort McMurray, Alberta and led by SOYA Lead Trainers. The program runs for 10 months with student training meetings held one weekend a month.  This program includes a number of written philosophy assignments to deepen ones understanding of Yoga.  Students are expected to maintain a focused personal practice during the months of training. Ongoing support is offered during home study through a facebook group, email and phone calls.

The training includes philosophy, meditation, mantra, pranayama, anatomy and multiple asana styles as part of the comprehensive curriculum.  Lessons completed at home are reviewed, discussed and put into practice.  Practicum sessions develop confidence and expertise in teaching skills, lesson plan design, and the ability to modify asanas for most people’s needs.

Registration is required at least one month prior to the training to allow time for the written assignments to be completed.  Upon completion graduates are eligible to register with Yoga Alliance as an RYT500® Registered Yoga Teacher.
