300-Hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training
This program is for yoga teachers who remain dedicated to elevating yoga in their communities and in our industry, who are committed to a higher standard and have an unbridled passion for learning and serving others.
An educated and experienced yoga teacher is one who can hold safe space for students while they explore their potential on the levels of embodiment, psychology and spirituality. The Colorado School of Yoga and Gina Caputo stand for excellence in yoga education and our reputation is one that will imbue your students with a sense of confidence in your presence and skills.
This training includes two 10-day immersions over the course of 3 months with online course work for the 6 weeks in between the immersions.
During the two immersions, mornings begin with meditation and lecture followed by a physical practice before lunch. Our afternoons are filled with lecture, group and individual exercises, practicum, one-on-one mentoring and engagement on every level.
In the 6 weeks in between the immersions, you will be given homework assignments consisting of online content, focused review, worksheets, practice teaching and personal practice suggestions. You should plan for 10-12 hours a week of study including self-practice.
The second 10-day immersion will also include evolved sequencing work, practice teaching, refinement and feedback, self-inquiry work and the business aspects of teaching yoga as a profession. We’ll bring powerful closure to an evolutionary journey we take together and emerge as united family!
