Whole Life Yoga Advanced Yoga Teacher Training

Are you ready to take your yoga studies to the next level? Would you like to deepen your pranayama and meditation practices while learning how to adapt your teaching to more vulnerable audiences?

If so, Whole Life Yoga Advanced Teacher Training may be for you! Like our 200-hour program, this 300-hour program (registered with Yoga Alliance) utilizes a multifaceted approach of weekly classes, monthly clinics, private instruction, case work, and independent study. When combined with a 200-hour certification, our 300-hour program qualifies graduates to be certified at the 500-hour level with Yoga Alliance.

Students in Whole Life Yoga Advanced Teacher Training learn to:

  • Adapt yoga poses to individuals with injuries and chronic conditions.
  • Design safe, effective yoga practices for specialized audiences, including prenatal, seniors, children, and other specialized audiences.
  • Develop a deep and meaningful yoga practice using all 5 levels of yoga: asana, pranayama, meditation, chant, and ritual.
  • Work privately with individuals to create home practices specifically targeted to their needs.
  • Teach and practice a full range of pranayama practices safely and effectively.
  • Practice a wider range of poses and adaptations than is possible in a 200-hour training.
  • Deepen their personal application of yoga philosophy.
  • Build a supportive community of peers who share their love of yoga.

Whole Life Yoga Advanced Teacher Training is appropriate for:

  • Graduates of Whole Life Yoga Teacher Training’s 200-hour program, whether they intend to teach or not.
  • Graduates of other Viniyoga or TKV Desikachar lineage trainings at the 200-hour level or higher.
  • Yoga teachers from other styles interested in learning the Viniyoga methodology. (Note: This will require pre-work to develop the baseline skills needed to understand the advanced training.)

What Makes Whole Life Yoga Advanced Teacher Training Special?

Seattle is blessed with a wide variety of yoga teacher training programs. Choosing the right training for your specific goals can be a challenge. Our program is, in many ways, unique.

Whole Life Yoga Advanced Teacher Training stands out from other Seattle-area trainings in several key ways:

  • Physical Adaptability: Our training program is designed to be accessible to all ages, body types, and experience levels. We invite fit, experienced yogis to attend, and we also embrace newer yogis and those with physical limitations and chronic conditions. Viniyoga is appropriate for Olympic-level athletes, weekend warriors, and relative couch potatoes. Our graduates range in age from late teens to late seventies.
  • Practical Structure: Class meets one weekday evening a week and one Sunday a month for over a year and also includes two weekend retreats. This structure is specifically designed to meet the needs of working adults and full-time parents. Our “trickle approach” helps students integrate the teachings at a much deeper level than can be achieved in trainings with more compressed timeframes.
  • Longevity and Experience: The director and primary instructor, Tracy Weber (E-RYT500, C-IAYT) is a certified yoga therapist with fifteen years experience leading yoga teacher trainings. She has certified 200 and 500-hour yoga teachers since 2003.
  • Dedication to a Proven Tradition: Whole Life Yoga Advanced Teacher Training is taught exclusively in the Viniyoga tradition. This lineage has been handed down for generations in India and is known for its adaptability and focus on the breath.
  • Commitment to Student Success: We believe in helping our students succeed, and we understand that life doesn’t always go according to plan. We do everything in our power to help our students learn, grow, and successfully complete the program. We believe in teaching Yoga for Real People ™ to yogis with real lives!
  • Proven Financial Stability: Whole Life Yoga Advanced Teacher Training is both registered with Yoga Alliance and licensed as a private career school through the State of Washington. We have passed rigorous tests of business and financial stability, and your tuition is protected by the State of Washington. Simply put, your money is safe with us!
