300 Yoga Teacher Training Curriculum

Why did I decide to create a 300 hour Yoga Teacher Training Curriculum? I loved taking my 300 hr Yoga Teacher Training!

To be able to focus on learning more deeply the philosophy, history of yoga was what I was ready for. I was able to go deeper into my meditation practices. We focused more on energetics of the yoga sequence. We looked at anatomy in a more integrated way.

We, as Yoga Teacher Training teachers, know that coming out of a 200 hr YTT is just the launching point. You have to digest, integrate and play with our new learnings. We need time to digest before going deeper. And then, there comes a time when you know you are ready for the next level of studies.

You will have people in your studio that just want to study and go deeper. You also have your teachers that want to go deeper. There are also teachers outside of your studio that would like to further their studies.

With the majority of 300 hr trainings that are retreat style, there are many that cannot take that kind of away time. If you look up 300 hr trainings in your area, there are very few. Be the go to studio for 300 hr yoga teacher trainings.

With the new Yoga Alliance changes, teachers need to be 500 hr E-RYT to teach a 200 or 300 hr YTT.

I knew I had to add a 300 hr Curriculum to our customers. I am so proud of what Tanya has created. Detailed, dynamic, and soul fulfilling. This is a YTT you will be proud to offer as your own!

I made the right decision to go with the Yoga Teacher Training Program for Studios from Ashtangasana. The comprehensive manuals and materials allow for a variety of presentation formats so students learn several disciplines alongside each other. This approach helps balance the curriculum and keeps the training fun and interesting.


The Ashtangasana 300 Yoga Teacher Training is an incredible curriculum. I was so inspired with the deeper study of the yoga philosophy, advanced pranayama, and asana section. I reached a whole new level of understanding with the advanced anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology section.

The section on meditation, mantras, and mudras gave me the confidence to incorporate new facets in my yoga practice for my students. Throughout the entire training, I felt refueled and inspired. It created a joyful thirst of wanting to learn more and to continue my beautiful journey on my yoga path.


I ran my first 200hr YTT last year using Ashtangasana’s training materials. The materials were well written, easy to use and covered all the information necessary to lead the training.

Adriana was a pleasure to deal with and always available to answer any questions I had in the beginning and every step along the way. I highly recommend this training program!
