"This was an amazing launchpad! Melissa is a master at facilitating discussion. The experiences that each person brought to the program were very enriching. This has been one of the most transformative experiences I have done so far in this lifetime. Weekends built one after another and each time exceeded what I thought I would learn and feel." Rhonda, 300 Hour Graduate 

You can expect...


During your 300 hour training, you will learn to work with groups or individuals with adaptive needs. This training is for yoga teachers trained at the RYT200 level who are looking to enhance and expand the way they show up for themselves and for others. Some of what you will learn will be: to specialize and tailor yoga for special populations, you will learn how to use anatomy to help with different client abilities, you will develop a deeper appreciation of yoga philosophy and how to apply it in your sessions, you will read and learn from evidence-informed studies and learn how western medicine and points of view complement traditional holistic yogic practices. This training emphasizes the importance of self-care, creating and holding space for others, mind-body medicine, and the power of lifestyle choice. Not only will you be given support during the weekend training, there will also be mentoring hours for any additional help you may need. The culmination of this training is a practicum, focusing on an element from the training that you would like to delve more deeply into. It is our intent as teachers that after the successful completion of your training and practicum that you will then have a practice-ready that you can take and teach to your population of choice and apply as a professional yoga and mindfulness provider.

Training Details

Over the past few years, we are so excited to see the efficacy and impact that we originally worried would be lost online in 2020 but evolved into an powerful training experience making this work more accessible and personalized for students going through the programs. Those with unpredictable schedules or looking for flexibility were now able to enjoy a personalized training experience and attain their certification. With feedback from our community we wanted to blend the best of both worlds: In Person AND the Module Format. We intend this hybrid program to be a way to continue making this work more accessible AND providing the highest quality of person-centered training where students receive ample 1:1 support and spaciousness to grow in a schedule that works for them in addition to our in person weekend dates.
