200 Hour Syllabus
Yoga Sutras of Patanjali | 10 hours
One of our core values is the integration of the philosophy of yoga into daily life. The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali are the foundational text that explains the psychology, practice, and result of living a yogic lifestyle. Teachers are encouraged to incorporate the metacognitive aspects of yoga to help them come clean to their students. A fundamental skill of teaching yoga is to be able to hold space in a projection free way that allows for exploration and self-development of your students. The sutras are the foundation of this practice.
The History of Yoga | 10 hours
Teachers graduating from our school are taught about the history of yoga through the lens of Tantra and non-duality. Students will learn about the aspects of being and how yoga attempts to create harmony and union of the entire experience.
Meditation |30 hours
Teachers in training will be exposed to multiple types of meditation, including silent meditation, guided meditation, and Yoga Nidra. Teachers will graduate feeling comfortable teaching and facilitating pranayama, pratyahara, and meditation.
Yoga Anatomy & Physiology | 20 hours
Teachers in our 200-hour training learn the foundations of anatomy, including the way the axial and appendicular skeletons come together to create a container for the flow of prana. We look at the major joint systems in the body and how they relate to the asana we use to sequence vinyasa flow. We then look at the central nervous system and how the asanas impact the physical and energetic body to calm the mental body.
Sequencing Vinyasa Flow |30 hours
Our training teaches you how to break poses down into groups that have similar movements that complement one another. This allows you to put poses with similar functionality together quickly and easily to ensure safety and creativity. We teach beginner sequencing, all level sequencing, and advanced sequencing.
Subtle Bodies |10 hours
Our training goes over the subtle bodies extensively, beginning with the Pancha Maya Kosha system and moving into the chakra system. We look at the way the Nadi system overlays the Pranamaya Kosha and the chakras, and we look at the similarities between meridians and Nadis.
Yin & Restorative |10 hours
In our training, we give an overview of both yin and restorative yoga, and we explain their differences. Teachers graduating from our program will feel comfortable teaching both yin and restorative yoga.
Introduction to Prenatal |10 hours
Teachers in our 200 hour training will receive an introduction to prenatal and will be able to offer modifications to expectant mothers in all three trimesters.
Introduction to Ayurveda | 10 hours
In our 200 hour, teachers will receive an introduction to Ayurveda that explains the tattvas (elements), the tri-doshic system, the impact the seasons have on our constitutions, and Ayurvedic self-care routines.
Business of Yoga |10 hours
In our business of yoga module, teachers will learn how to write a business plan, evaluate perceived competition, run projections, and develop a sustainable brand. My Vinyasa Practice offers guaranteed job placement to all graduates.
Practicum | 20 hours
Practice teaching and planning sequences make up part of your practicum. The practicum culminates in a live class where the teacher offers a karma class. The lead trainer and fellow teachers in training provide feedback.
Mentorship | As Needed
Our training comes with a built-in one on one mentorship that lets you check in with the lead trainer or supporting trainers as needed. These meetings are at no additional charge, and they can be set up to accommodate your schedule.
About Our Program
Our program comes with an online component that mirrors the entire 200-hour YTT. Yoga Alliance allows students in training to miss the equivalent of one weekend. If you need to miss more time, you can schedule a make up session with the lead trainer.
