Our 300 hour Level 2 training is a continuation of the 200 hour syllabus at an advanced level. On completion, trainees are certified for 300 Hours Teacher Training. A prerequisite for the Level 2 training is the successful completion of 200 hour training with Himalaya Yoga Valley or another Yoga Alliance approved 200 hour Registered Yoga School (RYS).
Graduates may also have the opportunity to complete our internship programme. This allows students to deepen and expand their knowledge and teaching skills in a supportive environment. Please see the Internships page for further details.
Level 2 is 300 hours of study and training (commonly referred to as a 300 Hour Training, or sometimes 500 Hour, in yoga circles) at an advanced level across all practical and theory subjects. The advanced continuous learning is focused on teacher trainees deepening their personal practice and improving their alignment, progressing towards a peak relative to their own starting point.
The second tier is learning to teach advanced asana and thereby being able to analyse and understand each asana on a pranic, physical, therapeutic and psycho-emotional level. Through immersion and further layers of learning teachers gain a working understanding of the key concepts of strategic business planning required for developing a sustainable yoga business in a very competitive yoga market. In addition to marketing, branding and promotions concepts, teachers will learn about social and digital media considerations necessary for reaching today’s large digital markets.
The Prerequisite for enrolling in 300 hour training is successful completion and Certification of 200 hour Teacher Training.
