What: 300hr TEACHER TRAINING (LIVE, IN-PERSON), Yoga Alliance Certified

When: September 3-24th, 2022

Where: Danena Sicily

It’s time! Lighthouse is excited to offer our first in-person 300hr Teacher Training since 2019! Learn to practice and teach our signature yoga class, JM Vinyasa, with clarity and precision. This training will be our most immersive and in-depth training to date, as we will live on-site together for 3 weeks at the beautiful retreat center, Danena Sicily, with Jared McCann and Rebecca Causey, who share over 34 years of teaching experience. Immerse yourself in yoga asana and sadhana practice and study each posture in-depth from the perspective of practitioner and teacher. Jared will also teach Yoga History and Philosophy and along with Rebecca, serve as coach + mentor during teaching practice sessions. Rebecca will teach Anatomy + Kineseology as applied to yoga asana.

Our 300hr Advanced JM Vinyasa Teacher Training is designed to help students enhance and refine their teaching skills and personal yoga + meditation practice. Trainees will learn to effectively teach and safely practice more advanced poses 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 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 500hr 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.
