A training so nice, we’re doing it twice! Lighthouse Yoga School is excited to offer another opportunity to join us in 2023 for our 300hr Teacher Training in Danena, Sicily! Learn to practice and teach our signature yoga class, JM Vinyasa, with clarity and precision. This training continues to be our most immersive and in-depth training to date, as we live on-site together for 3 weeks at the beautiful retreat center, Danena Sicily, with Jared McCann (E-RYT500) and Rebecca Causey (E-RYT500, FRCms), who share over 36 years of teaching experience. Our time together will be an immersion in yoga asana, anatomy, philosophy and practice-teaching. We will cultivate a daily asana and sadhana practice and study each posture in-depth from the perspective of student and teacher.  
Our 300hr Advanced JM Vinyasa Teacher Training is designed to help students enhance and refine their teaching skills and personal movement + meditation practice. Trainees will learn to effectively teach and safely practice more advanced asana and inversions, cultivate a daily Sadhana practice that includes mantra, kriya, pranayama and meditation, as well as take a deeper look into yoga history and philosophy, yoga anatomy, physiology and functional movement. 
Students who complete all the elements of this training will be eligible to receive a 300hr certification from Yoga Alliance, or add it to a previous 200hr certification to meet the 500-RYT requirement. Students who satisfactorily complete this program will also receive a 300hr certificate from Jared McCann and their contact information and teaching credentials will be added to our list of certified JMY teachers around the world.
