Unlock and unleash your yoga teaching potential in this 300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training in San Luis Obispo with Rocky Heron and Peach Friedman.
Our 300 hour yoga teacher trainings boast the highest caliber of yoga education. Geared toward existing yoga teachers who are ready to increase efficacy and potency, we provide you with tools that dramatically improve your knowledge, clarity, and focus. Expect to enhance your existing skills, and put them to more productive use; as well as dive into new territory. We have designed curriculum that yields graduates who are able to deepen their current repertoire, and expand on it. Our aim is to see your strengths, meet you where you are, and support your unique direction and growth.
We do not produce cookie-cutter yoga instructors. We 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. This training will challenge you to investigate the why of how you teach, and ask questions that may not have occurred to you to consider, so that you can ultimately deliver your own lessons and curriculum with clarity and confidence.
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. We limit enrollment and screen applications. Expect to receive customized attention, suited for your individual needs.
This training is a serious investment in the quality of your education. This holds us to the highest standard as yoga educators. We value our relationships with our students, and strive to provide a growth experience that can’t be replicated. We are confident that if you join us for yoga school, you’ll agree.

If you have date conflicts, you may miss a module and make it up in another program for a minimal make up fee. Once the program is underway, you may still join us, provided you are in touch with our office to determine a catch up/bridging plan. We will accommodate make up modules for up to one year after the training ends. Expect daily hours to be similar to 9:00am-6:00pm; however the exact schedule will be flexible and specific hours will be tailored to the teacher’s assessment of group needs, and announced via email to our students prior to each respective module.
Complete participation is strongly recommended. However, life events and circumstances sometimes take priority, and we are as flexible and reasonable as we can be with our students. Makeup options are available. Please see our Makeup Policy for more information.

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 would wholeheartedly recommend this training. A lot of 300 hour trainings will teach you aspects of yoga. The The Mazé Method training is singularly focused on teaching you how to teach those aspects, and that’s a critical distinction. You get the content, but more than that you get the skills to deliver that content to your students.” –Taylor Trussell
“This is the hardest and the most rewarding training I’ve ever done. I really loved it. I love the non-dogmatic approach and the openness to other points of view. The content is solid. The instructors are all knowledgeable. I felt inspired and supported. Noah is a bad-ass teacher and amazing human being. I loved everyone on this team – thank you all!” –Aria Morga
