Course Objectives

Kate Noble is the lead trainer for our 2020 300/500 expanded course and will be accompanied by other guest teachers* throughout this training to help open the field of Yoga, Wellness, and Teaching to our trainees. Dependent on the size of our group, we will have enough instructors at every session so that you always feel fully seen and supported. The unwritten theme of our Foundational 200 HR Training always seemed to be, "this is just the tip of the iceburg." With the 300/500 hour training "it is time to dive in deep and swim out far." It's going to be a grand adventure. We can't wait to enjoy your company in this joyful journey of personal growth and transformation via the study of the ancient teachings of yoga and their modern adaptations. Sharing from a place of authenticity you will also be able to guide others to a state of comfort, freedom, and empowerment through the practice of Yoga.

Curriculum Courses 

The specifics of the training are evolving based on insight from the previous program as well as honoring updated guidelines from yoga alliance. This list will give you an idea of what you can look forward to learning and exploring with us!
