What’s So Exceptional about the Nosara Yoga Advanced 300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training?

At NYI, we believe that the experience of yoga has the potential to integrate every dimension of our being. The comprehensive curriculum is structured to provide the optimal opportunity for offering diversified skills that prepare graduates to teach in a wide variety of settings and ability levels in groups, one-on-one sessions and extended workshops.

Our 200-hour program mentors teachers in-training with the conscious awareness to learn from their own experiences, and to teach the yoga that arises from their own creativity.

Our Advanced 300-hour Yoga Teacher Training builds upon this foundation, developing teachers who can access their skills in three distinct, yet complementary modalities.

These trainings are offered consecutively, allowing students to engage in 6 continual weeks of study. This immersion experience is the “Fast Track” for completion of the NYI 500-hour certification and to Yoga Alliance qualification.

Participants have the option to forgo the “Fast Track” schedule, and to take the 300-Hour modules independently over the course of 3 years. Whether completed consecutively or within three years’ time, these trainings qualify graduates for the Yoga Alliance and NYI 300-Hour certification.


After graduation, teachers will be able to:

        • Teach Self Awakening Yoga®: to individuals and groups: Drawn from Don’s book of the same name, Self Awakening Yoga can be used as a therapeutic complete practice for individuals working with specific health challenges, as well as serving as a foundation for students of all levels to deepen body awareness and to access the limitlessness of the body’s intelligence.

        • Offer Pranassage® as an NYI certified practitioner: Developed by Amba after years of teaching yoga to private clients, this unique method of hands-on assists can be used in both regular group classes, and in one-on-one sessions to increase sensation, body awareness and deep relaxation through the use of touch. The most valuable outcome is developing the attitude of non-judgmental self-awareness throughout all yoga practices.

        • Become a Yoga Guide through the Inner Quest of the Yoga Educator®: Learn how to bring the philosophy of non-authoritative teaching to life, developing effective listening and communication skills, while partnering with and empowering the students who come to you for support

        • As an alternative to Pranassage, you may substitute Essential Nature Restorative Yoga: Learn the essentials of presenting a comprehensive restorative yoga class, including the basics of passive and active restorative postures, Essential Nature Restorative YogaFlows™, and the anatomy of relaxation.
