300-Hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training

This is a Yoga Alliance registered teacher training.


Weekday and weekend schedule options are available.
This is a two module based program.
Modules for each schedule option start once a year and you can begin with either module.

An unlimited class pass to the studio (live stream or in-person classes) is included for the length of your training!

This program is designed to specifically support your growth as a vinyasa yoga teacher.

Many advanced trainings incorporate elective type courses that cover a plethora of yoga styles and topics. Which can be helpful in some ways, but perhaps not very helpful when it comes to specifically teaching vinyasa style yoga classes. The LKPY 300-Hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training curriculum was developed from my own experience as a yoga teacher for three decades and as a teacher trainer for the last 15 years.
The topics and chosen studies are based on what I have personally found to support my growth in becoming a better teacher over the years.

I understand that during these times, online training has become more popular. There is definitely value in that – I offer them myself! However, I personally feel the for an advanced training in-person and hands-on is essential in order to really grow and
expand your skills as a teacher.

In this advanced training program, you will build on the skills that you learned in your initial 200-hour program. Each course is designed to help expand your knowledge in a way that can be directly applied and put to use in teaching your vinyasa classes.

We build on the LKPY 200-Hour program with advanced anatomy, more in-depth hands-on assists, addressing common imbalances, how to integrate more complex poses into your power vinyasa class, Sanskrit, meditation and a deep dive into the study
and application of The 8 Limbs of Yoga – and how to integrate them into your classes.

This training is open to anyone who is certified at the 200-hour level.
(Your 200-hour certification does not need to be with LKPY)

Each trainee receives one-on-one mentoring with Lyn throughout the training.
Under Lyn’s guidance you will have an opportunity to refine your teaching
skills based on your individual needs. Mentorships begins at the start of the first module.

While this is an in studio program, the option to join all sessions via Zoom is available.
Please email Lyn for more information if you are interested in remote participation.

We’ll deconstruct seemingly complex asanas and look at their parts and pieces through the lens of anatomy. This course will provide you with information and tools to understand why you might be observing a particular pattern in your student’s practice. At the completion of this course, you’ll have a better understanding of how to help your students build the patterns they need to evolve their postures in a healthy way.

Mentoring Module:

Mentorship recreates the traditional yoga teacher training model based on a strong and trusted relationship between mentor and student. I am a strong believer, based on my many years training teachers, that a mentor style relationship is an important ingredient on the path to yoga teaching. While group training is an important part of the training process, everyone learns differently and has unique challenges and talents. Mentorship gives each trainee an opportunity for individualized support specific to their needs.

6 One-On-One Mentoring Sessions with Lyn
Trainees will receive feedback and support on their progress. Specific needs, questions and concerns will be addressed at these meetings. Sessions will be scheduled individually for each trainee.

Monthly Practice Teach Sessions
Monthly practice teach sessions are for you to focus on practice teaching for your specific needs. You can choose to lead other trainees in specific techniques, sequences, and poses that they feel they need practice with.
