500 hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training


advancedyogateachertraining_flyer_mediumADVANCED YOGA TEACHER TRAINING 

Jim’s Advanced Yoga Teacher Training programme encourages you to re-visit your teaching skills and understanding of what yoga is to you.  You will  re-investigate not only the how, but why of teaching methodologies and techniques, based on cutting-edge research balanced with the age-old roots and traditions of the practice.


Two distinct modules:

This 300 hour training is divided into two distinct modules, supported by an online course designed by Jim Harrington.  The coursework will include a research project or case study, and the practical application of theory.

This approach allows you the flexibility to complete the training in your own time. Modules can be taken whenever suits you, and not necessarily within a 12 month period.

Roots & Traditions of Yoga – 18 – 29 September, 2017
Here, on the banks of the River Ganges, you will explore where yoga came from, and what it means for you as a Modern Yogi. This module of philosophy, lifestyle and exploration is already filling up, and spaces are limited.

Applied anatomy & physiology, myths and methodologies:

This module has two components: advanced anatomy & physiology and teaching methodology & techniques.

Applied anatomy and physiology of yoga and movement is based on current research trends in movement therapies, and uses only cutting-edge application of movement science. This is where you develop a deeper understanding of functional anatomy and physiology in asana, pranayama and meditation.

Myths and methodology: There are a plenty of alignment myths and teaching practices that are out-of-step with how our bodies work functionally in yoga asana. This module is designed specifically to address methods and techniques of teaching that are guaranteed to elevate how you teach. Included here are sub-modules on specialising for particular needs.

This module will begin in 2018.

Online coursework & research project / practical application of theory

The two modules are supported and re-enforced by further online study through Jim Harrington Yoga. You can complete the online course within a 3 month period.

The course concludes with a research project / case study and practical application of the theory covered. You have an additional 1 month post the online course to complete this component of the training.
