300-Hour Training

A Journey Into Mastery.

Our 300-Hour RYT teacher certification program is called Embody Mastery, an advanced study for 200-Hour-certified teachers from any tradition. Embody Mastery is a 10-month program that provides you with an opportunity to build upon the material introduced in your 200-Hour teacher training program and integrate what you’ve learned through practical application in the classroom, as well as support the development of your individual voice, style and leadership skills as a yoga teacher. Through a combination of classroom sessions, workshops and apprenticeships with senior trainers and expert guest instructors, you will refine your teaching and leadership skills, identify areas of expertise, and set the foundation for fully incorporating yoga into your life path of mastery. This 300-hour professional teacher certification program comprises 300 hours of Yoga Alliance-approved content that, when combined with your 200-Hour training, delivers a comprehensive and advanced 500-Hour certification in Power Vinyasa Yoga.

I’m interested! Keep me informed…

MBody Yoga offers a cohesive, multi-specialist approach to teacher training that blends the best of the Yoga tradition from the East and West. Our faculty is comprised of highly trained, experienced inspiring professionals with a profound understanding of Yoga’s transformative power.

Our approach to the 300-hour teacher training involves a blending of the three strands of the Krishnamacharya lineage of Eastern Yoga augmented by the contemporary Westernized Teachings of Baron Baptiste. From the Krishnamacharya lineage, we get the Eastern foundational yoga practices of: Ashtanga, Iyengar and Desikachar. Essentially, Ashtanga provides us with the methodology that incorporates heat and flow. Iyengar provides us with the methodology of precise anatomical and physical instructions to teaching to the body. Desikachar provides us with the methodology that the practice should fit and adapt to the practitioner’s changing needs to get the most therapeutic benefit. Baptiste Power Yoga provides us with the methodology of the three aforementioned practices blended into one Westernized and transformative approach to teaching powerfully to the body, mind and spirit.

Our programs emphasize a student’s personal practice as the source for their teaching and include a comprehensive study of the techniques and mechanics of fundamental yoga postures, as well as the tools necessary to teach and inspire others. To deepen their education, students will also study functional anatomy and physiology; explore Yoga’s philosophical underpinnings; practice meditation and pranayama; engage in the practice SEVA (service); and explore mastery in the form of leadership development.

What is the Yoga Alliance?

Yoga Alliance is an organization that was started in 1999 as a way to create nationally recognized standards for yoga teachers and yoga teacher trainings in the US. More and more yoga studios across the country are requiring their teachers to register with the Yoga Alliance, either at the 200-Hour or 300-Hour level. Yoga Alliance registration, however, is not a legal requirement for teaching yoga.

Currently, there are no legal certification requirements to be a yoga teacher. The MBody Yoga Academy Trainings are approved at the Yoga Alliance 200-Hour and 300-Hour level in the United States. MBody Yoga Academy trainings have a 4.5 out of 5-star Yoga Alliance rating based on past training participants.

Is the MBody Yoga Academy Teacher Training qualification recognized around the world?

Yes! The MBody Yoga Academy Teacher Training and School is globally recognized and respected which is why we have over 600 graduates. Our students come from all over the U.S. to take our training and to bring the knowledge back home to their own communities.

What is the process for teaching at an MBody Yoga studio?

MBody Yoga Academy seeks a diverse, committed, and well-trained faculty who uphold our high standard of quality for safe, effective, and accessible teaching in the field of yoga. The process to teach at MBody Yoga starts with joining our Teacher Mentorship Program. This program is available to you at no charge. In these sessions you will receive coaching and support from a Mentor (senior MBody teacher) as well as give feedback and support to your fellow participants. Once your Mentor believes you are ready to move on, you will audition with other MBody Yoga Teachers and Managers. Once you complete our audition process and are approved to teach, you will be placed on our schedule to teach a Community Class.

You will join our Community Class rotation which is held on Saturdays at 4:00p and is open to the public. A Mentor will join you at each class. You will also be eligible to substitute classes until a class becomes available for you. Please note that being brought on as a teacher at MBody Yoga, or at any institution, is not only a matter of completing a training, but of the right teaching fit for that studio as well as the availability of openings on the schedule. It is never guaranteed.
