For existing yoga teachers who are ready to increase efficacy and potency, advanced Yoga Teacher Training is a serious investment in the quality of your education. This training, led by Noah Mazé and faculty, consists of six 5-day modules beginning in May of 2020 (see date details below).
We do not produce cookie-cutter yoga instructors. Our aim is to see your strengths, meet you where you are, and support each student’s unique direction and growth. Our school’s community is comprised of a global “family” of teachers who support and learn from each other. Beyond the unparalleled professional and personal growth, our students report long-term relationships with colleagues in all corners of the world.
Our 300 hour yoga teacher trainings boast the highest caliber of yoga education, as we hold ourselves to the highest standard among yoga educators. We will limit attendance in this program to approximately 20 qualified students. When complete, you will qualify to register with Yoga Alliance at the 500 hour RYT level.
Via this training, we provide tools that will dramatically improve your yoga knowledge, clarity, and focus. Expect to enhance existing skills, and put them to more productive use, as well as to learn new skills and techniques as we deep dive into new and relevant territory. Our curriculum combines detailed alignment and intelligent sequencing with vinyasa theory, and provides you with broad substantive knowledge and skills to teach safer and more effective yoga classes. Designed to help you learn more about all things yoga, leverage your practice, improve your poses—and your experience of them—and leverage your unique skills, through in depth study and exposure to new techniques. Your in depth understanding of the biomechanical alignment of yoga postures will grow exponentially, as will your existing knowledge base. But we don’t stop there. Our graduates are not only able to deepen their repertoire, and expand on it, our graduates are among the most versatile in their profession– able to deftly translate their new skills and knowledge into variable choices.
We will challenge and educate you to better know yourself as a teacher and grow your capacity from your ability to make sound decisions based on your needs, as well as the needs of your students. We will encourage you to investigate the “why” of how you teach. You will ask and answer questions that may not have occurred to you to consider. Ultimately you will leave this program equipped and empower to deliver your own lessons and lay out your own yoga curriculum with clarity and confidence.

Our sample 300 hour schedule and syllabus is drawn directly from a recent 300 hour training. This syllabus is meant to give you a reliable sense of the range of topics that are covered, but it is unlikely to reflect the exact schedule or curriculum of our training. Our curriculum is dynamic and ever evolving, so it will undoubtedly be adjusted and tailored to meet group needs. Accordingly, we are likely to spend more time on certain skills and focus areas, while quickly touching upon others based upon teacher experience, facilitation and observation.

"I loved the experience and signed up for the 300 hour program even before I finished. Aside from just being able to focus on yoga for 8 hours a day, a week at a time, with incredible instructors, I enjoyed working with my classmates and watching us all grow as yoga practitioners and instructors.” - Jeff Swanson
“ I would highly recommend the The Mazé Method 200 hour teacher training because it’s not just about learning to teach yoga poses. It’s learning about yourself. It’s about individual growth. That’s why I chose to study with The Mazé Method. Through this training I’ve become much more observant and gained awareness and understanding of what the poses do for our bodies. I joined the program to deepen my knowledge, but it has also been about evolvement in my own being. It’s been scary, exciting, very emotional and wonderful for me.”—Laura Wang
