When the body, breath and mind are cohesively aligned, we express power with ease and grace. This is fundamental not only to managing our prana (life force) but also to effectively reduce our physical or mental limitations. As we learn to embody this peaceful and determined attitude during our practice, we begin to carry it forth into our daily lives, meeting our challenges with a sense of peace and self-mastery.
The Zuna Yoga® team will artfully present a highly organized curriculum that joins the traditional teachings of yogic sages with modern scientific perspectives of neuroscience, psychology, physiology and anatomy. You’ll learn to use a wide variety of yogic tools such as asana, bandha, pranayama, meditation and kriya to achieve an unparalleled experience of personal development and a deep yogic practice guided by timeless philosophy.
This is a highly experiential course, methodically tailored to provide you the best education and the deepest experience possible on every level. The immersion format is unmatched in delivering a rich depth of understanding. You’ll learn, practice, and then teach the concepts and tools we’ll share. This will afford you a greater sense of embodiment and mastery, so you can share what you learn with confidence. You’ll develop a new appreciation of your own abilities that will sustain your inspiration and growth for years to come.
The Zuna Yoga® 300 hour yoga teacher training course goes beyond asana to present a comprehensive study of Traditional Essentials: Philosophy, Anatomy, Energetics, Advanced Sequencing, Adjustments, Pranayama, Meditation, Restorative Yoga, Yoga Nidra, Business, Ethics and more to advance your career opportunities and personal practice.
Learn to use the tools of yoga to find within yourself a limitless source of intuition, power and grace. Deep daily practice helps you recognize and move beyond old programming and any perceived restrictions in your life. You’ll feel safe and supported on your journey as you connect with a soulful community and leave with a renewed sense of clarity, creativity, joy and awe.
You’ll receive expert guidance drawn from our instructors’ decades of successfully operating yoga studios and leading classes, workshops, retreats, and teacher trainings. This 300 hour course offers plenty of practice teaching to strengthen confidence in your voice and your skills as an instructor. Be inspired and prepared to share your light with your community.
You’ll review the key categories of yoga postures and their alignment, benefits, contraindications and modifications. Building from a strong foundation, you’ll practice intermediate and advanced poses such as arm balances and inversions. You’ll also move beyond the physical to thoroughly explore postures from an energetic perspective, to understand them as key ingredients of a master recipe.
Skillful adjustments and verbal cues help differentiate novices from seasoned teachers and help strengthen trust and connection with your students. You’ll hone your ability to body-read, not just physically but also emotionally, so you can offer individualized and optimal support in the right moment.
You will learn how the tools of asana (postures), pranayama (breathing methods), bandha (energy locks) and meditation are used to create deep meaningful sequences. A great class is not just bio-mechanically sound but also powerful on an energetic level. You will practice dozens of different sequences, designed by our expert teachers to integrate classroom learning. You’ll also create your own sequences using the important tools you get at this training.
Every class you teach is an opportunity to take your students on a journey of self discovery. Whether that’s through the physical body, or inner exploration, we’ll give you the tools to take them there.
The breath is much more than just inhale/exhale. It’s is the primary life force and the true foundation of meaningful yogic practice. The breath has a profound influence on our nervous system, cognitive abilities, emotional management and how we interact with the world. We will thoroughly explore its application in postures, pranayama and meditation.
Frequently, the essential teachings of the sages get lost in translation. We’ll help bridge the gap between the often esoteric ancient wisdom of yoga and its relevance for modern living. You’ll examine the essential philosophies and traditions of Hatha, Tantra, and Classical Yoga.
There are many dimensions to understanding the prime life force, known to the yogis as prana. Consciously directing its flow through the body and mind is the secret to a transformative yoga practice. Energy is power and we’ll show you how to harness it.
Restorative postures and classes are highly accessible to all populations and can be a valuable addition to your teaching skills. You’ll learn restorative postures, creative sequencing, how to combine breath meditations, kriyas and other tools to deliver yourself and your students into deep healing relaxation.
Yoga Nidra is one of the crown jewels of yoga that can deliver us effectively into the deepest realms of yoga, effortlessly. It is highly effective for stress reduction and for understanding deep states of meditation and consciousness. We offer a detailed introduction to its benefits and use in this 300 hour yoga teacher training.
This disciplined practice is a powerful combination of intention and structured breath strategies. Nothing compares to pranayama in terms of developing your transformative power. It can bring rapid transformation of your practice, mindset, and life.
The power of meditation is significant. It’s been clinically proven as a highly effective tool for improving physical, emotional and mental health. In your 300 hour yoga teacher training we will be sharing a variety of different methods for developing your own personal practice and teaching.
Everyone will get the opportunity to teach and refine their yoga language skills and their ability to deliver an inspiring class as you work with the new tools you’ve learned. There will be plenty of practice teaching: one on one, in small groups, and in front of the whole class.
Using our collective creativity, we’ll explore new and innovative ideas of how to serve our communities through inspired workshop and program development exercises. These fun, enriching group exercises allows you to integrate the concepts you’ve learned at your 300 hour yoga teacher training course with your personal experience and unique voice.
This is an important topic in today’s climate of social and environmental responsibility. We will examine yogic philosophy as a foundation for modern ethics and understand the responsibilities of being a leader in your classroom and community.
A typical day at your 300 hour yoga teacher training begins with a morning practice at sunrise, the most powerful time of day to set your intention and experience the power of asana, pranayama, and meditation. After practice you’ll enjoy a healthy breakfast in silent reflection. Students break for lunch and rest, then meet again for lecture or teaching practice. We finish the day with a posture workshop, practicum or class, and a satisfying evening meditation.
There is one full day off per week.
|2:00PM||3:45PM||Lecture - Practicum|

This Yoga Alliance 300 hour yoga teacher training lets you fulfill the requirements for advanced certification (RYT500). It ensures a seamless continuation from the course material and experience we offer in our 200 hour YTT. It is not necessary to have completed our “level one – 200 hour certification course” but it is recommended that you have prior experience as a teacher or an acquired depth in self-study similar to what you would find in a high quality 200 hour course such as ours.
The Zuna Yoga® 300 hour yoga teacher training is not yoga for acrobats. The promise of yoga is not realized through complicated and rigorous asana. However, safe and competent performance of basic and intermediate asanas is important.
This 300 hour yoga teacher training is not only for aspiring teachers, but also for curious, passionate yogis who want to strengthen their knowledge, and practice.
Level 1 = 200 hour YTT
Level 2 = 300 hour YTT
The 200 hour course is a foundational program, where you’ll learn the essentials of postures, anatomy, yoga philosophy and teaching. After its completion, you’ll be qualified to register with Yoga Alliance® as an RYT200, giving you a globally recognized accreditation.
The 300 hour yoga teacher training is an advanced program which assumes you already have a strong foundation in postures, maturity, self-discipline, a high degree of curiosity and a thirst for knowledge.
Our 200 hour program plus our 300 hour comprises the full 500 hour training experience. You can enroll in a 200 hour and a 300 hour back to back; or you can leave any number of months or years between your trainings. Some schools like Zuna Yoga® offer the entire 500 hour program. Many offer only the 200 hour. Completing all your training hours with the same school offers consistency and depth.
You can participate in a 300 hour yoga teacher program without having done a 200 hour course if you are an advanced student looking to deepen your practice and are not interested in immediately registering with Yoga Alliance®. Please note that the 300 hour yoga teacher training is an advanced program, and most students will have already completed a 200 hour yoga teacher training course, or have some experience with yoga practice or teaching. Generally, we recommend first completing your 200YTT and then your 300YTT. Our 300 hour Meditation Teacher Training can easily be done before or after any of our other Yoga Teacher Trainings.
300 hour yoga teacher training students will dive deep into the advanced practices of pranayama, meditation, kriya and yoga nidra. This course assumes relative mastery of intermediate asana, and a desire to learn more about philosophy and the other aspects of yogic tradition. The focus of this program is on advanced techniques of yoga, rather than advanced asana. Its aim is to deepen your own practice and experience, allowing you to deliver richly meaningful classes. A detailed syllabus is given above.
