What is the 300 hour?

Our mission is to provide high-quality, in-depth training in a more accessible way to all who aspire to teach hatha yoga. Our new advanced certification program offers you the unique opportunity to further explore the realms of yoga under the guidance of dedicated, experienced instructors in a supportive environment at the pace that best suits you. That's right, you get to choose your schedule. Please don’t hesitate to contact Essencia Yoga if you have any questions after reviewing the enclosed information.

Flexible schedule

The 13-month course has a revolving door as we conduct 4 seasonal modules that includes a day-long monthly class, weekly check teaching reviews, daily practice,  with the possibility of a retreat intensive and the deliver of a final workshop.

There are scheduled breaks between the modules, which will allow time for you to integrate the teachings and practices, to study independently, as well as time to complete elective and seva (selfless service) requirements.

Online curriculum

Our online curriculum will engage you with resources, lectures, in-depth instruction in techniques of asana, lectures and discussions covering anatomy, philosophy, teaching methodology and skills in meditation, pranayama, mantra and more. The classes may be supported with guest lectures, MP3s, books, handouts, and study assignments.

Annual retreat

Retreats will also include asana, pranayama and meditation practices to assist you in taking your sadhana (personal practice) to another level. The weekend retreats will be held on the dates, times and places agreed upon by the trainees.
