2019 will be our first year offering the 300Hour Training at Meadowlark Yoga. In this extended Training, we are collaborating to bring you the next level of study, diving deeply into:
This unique in-depth training will be taught over a 9-day 100Hour Intensive, followed by 3 long weekends in early 2020 (Jan/Mar/May), concluding in the summer of 2020 with the second 9-day 100Hour Intensive to bring this unparalleled 300Hour Advanced Yoga Training to a close with a qualification recognised by the Yoga Alliance (USA).
Previous Avid Yogi graduates can enrol onto the 300Hour Advanced course and bring their existing 200Hour qualification up to a 500Hour certificate.
Anyone with a minimum of two years practical experience of yoga can apply for our 300Hour Training.
If you already have a 200Hour qualification from Avid Yogi, talk to us about your goals for achieving a 300 or 500Hour Certificate. Summer Intensoives are available as 100Hour modules, bridging the gap between our 200 and 300Hour Certificates.
Our exclusive 500Hour Certificate combines teaching and practice on the 200Hour and 300Hour courses and is available only by application with two references (one personal, one professional). Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Immerse yourself in the study of yoga. This 200Hour course gives you the opportunity to deepen your practice and allows you to begin sharing your passion. The course is unique in Scotland, combining the 50+ years experience of the contributing YT faculty. Our teaching faculty are professional & accomplished yoga teachers, with world-class expertise in a healthy range of specialities within this field; such as asana, anatomy, chanting, philosophy, restorative and community building.
The Avid Yogi approach is energetic, yet relaxed and inclusive. Trainees can expect to prioritise their personal practice under the guidance of our teachers. Day by day, trainees will gain confidence within the group by practising their growing knowledge of basic class instruction. Very early in the training, all members of the group will get their feet wet in the fundamentals of leading a group through basic yoga practice and from there transformation happens on an individual basis.
Based on the lineage of T. Krishnamacharya, the Avid Yogi approach to YT embraces Patanjali’s Ashtanga Yoga and the asana disciplines that have emerged since the start of the 20th century. With a survey of classical texts such as The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, The Hatha Yoga Pradipika and the Bhagavad Gita, the Avid Yogi Training Course is a fundamental training for anyone interested in taking their practice to the next level of study.
Whether you aspire to become a yoga teacher or not, this course will broaden lifelong horizons.
This Training is a journey that starts in the first 200 hours but lasts a lifetime. The Avid Yogi Training Pathway is a journey that continues to support your continued development as a practitioner. Establish your roots in yoga with the basic 200Hour qualification and make contact with others who are as passionate about yoga as you are.
