300 HOUR ONLINE 

TEACHER TRAINING MODULES

300 hour

ARE YOU READY FOR THE R.E.A.L THING? REFINE•EXPAND•ALIGN•LEAD  

The goal of the 300 hour yoga teacher training online is to give you the skills to support the growth of your students and help them go deeper in their yoga practice on and off the mat. The 300 hour teacher training program is meant to prepare you to share the yoga practice in a more profound way. You will unlock your potential as a teacher by developing the depth of your knowledge in areas such as anatomy, biomechanics, philosophy, intelligent sequencing, meditation, business, marketing and more. With this 300 hour training, you will develop the skills to become a masterful teacher and form your dedicated student base. If you are ready to offer the highest-quality experience to your students, then this is the training for you!

  • REFINE your practice and teaching skills
  • EXPAND your knowledge 
  • ALIGN your professional teaching path 
  • LEAD by developing your leadership skills

REFINE

Given the skills you have learned in your 200 hour, now it is time to refine them and become more precise. These skills include your personal yoga practice, a deeper understanding of your physical body, your verbal delivery, sequencing, dharma talks, guiding meditation and much more

EXPAND

Through the study of anatomy, yoga sutras, the chakras, Tantra philosophy and the Chromatic System of Yoga, you will develop a deeper knowledge base that will help you embody the wisdom of the practices in order to more authentically share the practice with your students.

ALIGN

Discover what your core purpose is as a teacher and learn how to align your teaching with it. Having a mission, purpose or intention behind WHY you are sharing the practice will help you develop the WHAT you are offering and HOW to offer it. This will take your teaching from average to professional and powerful.

LEAD

Develop your leadership skills and learn how to walk your students into the fire of transformation, supporting them throughout the experience. This might be the most challenging aspect of teaching, and it is why I want to support you so you feel prepared and confident in leading more profound experiences such as workshops, immersions, retreats and trainings.

There are 4 Online Modules, which you may sign up for individually or all together. Why separately? You may have done some modules already in person, in which case you will want to complete the ones you have missed, or you may be looking to expand your teaching but not interested in the full 300 hour training.

Common Questions:

Will I become a Chromatic Teacher? 

Yes, there are multiple levels of Chromatic Yoga teachers. Upon completion of the Chromatic Level 1 Module, you will become a Chromatic Teacher, allowing you to call your classes, private sessions, and workshops Chromatic Yoga. Should you want to become a Chromatic Leader or Chromatic Integrated Leader in the future, you will need to complete Chromatic Levels 2 and 3 respectively.

Is this Yoga Alliance Certified?

Currently, Yoga Alliance is asking that all online courses be completed by January 1, 2022. If you wish to complete your 300 hour course online, this is their deadline. If you do not wish to be a part of Yoga Alliance, then this deadline does not apply to you. Schedule a consultation with Matt, using the contact form at the bottom of the page, to learn more about Yoga Alliance and whether this deadline applies to you.

Will this make me 500 hour certified?
Yes, this 300 hour training plus your 200 hour training makes you a 500 hour certified teacher. As long as your 200 hour was recognized by Yoga Alliance, you can submit this training to become “500 Hour RYT”.

Can I take this course if I am not 200 hour certified?

Yes, but you would be far better served to start with the 200 Hour Online Training, which will prepare you to teach and provides you with the skills and knowledge that the 300 hour builds upon.

Do I need an advanced practice to take this?

No, you may come in with any level of experience so long as you have an open mind to learning. This course will help you advance your practice and develop your understanding of complex postures, but this is not the goal. The goal of the Physical module is to help you better understand your body and the bodies of the students practicing with you.

Can I take this course if I am already a teacher?

Yes, this is designed for yoga teachers looking to advance their practice.

How is this course delivered? What is the digital format?

This is delivered in a typical online course style, which you would find on websites like Teachable, Udemy, or Coursera. Each Section consists of Lessons. Each Lesson will have videos for you to watch, written accompaniment, and a Key Points Review, which is designed as a quiz in the course software. Chromatic Level 1 comes with a digital manual as well.

Do I have access to all classes on theyogimatt.com?

During the training, select online classes and workshops will be provided for you within the course. You will not have access to them outside the course, but you will be able to view them within the course itself and to re-practice them should you choose. If you would like to purchase these products at any time before the completion of your training (January 1, 2022), you will be provided a discount code upon request.

Can I connect to other trainees?

Yes, there will be a private Facebook group for anyone taking the 300 hour online training. Here you may submit questions, share victories and videos, and connect with other yogis on the path. There is also a Chromatic Yoga Facebook and WhatsApp group that you will be a part of upon completion of the Chromatic Level 1 Module.

Is there a payment plan option?

Yes, you have the option to pay in full or take advantage of a payment plan. Payment plans evenly divide the total amount into 3 or 6 parts and are billed monthly for the duration of your chosen plan. Payment plans will automatically expire when complete. No additional interest or fees are added to payment plans. Should you require an extended payment plan, this can be arranged. The certificate will be granted once the total tuition is paid.

Is there a test?

Should you desire to be certified, you will be required to submit both a video of you teaching and a written sequence for review. There will be a written (digital) test for which you will have a review sheet to study from prior to taking the test. The course prepares you appropriately so that passing the test is the inevitable result of your dedication.

Why do I need a smartphone or camera and a Gmail account?

Throughout the training and for the final, you will be submitting videos of your teaching so it can be reviewed. This will require a smartphone or video camera. You will need to upload these videos to a YouTube channel that you will create by having a Gmail account. If Google does not exist in your country, then we will use the equivalent.

Can I be refunded if I do not like the course?

No, sorry. This is not a trial course, experiment, or marketing gimmick. This is for yogis who are dedicated to the path of learning, self-reflection, and self-growth. It is recommended that you have practiced with Matt either online or in person prior to signing up, so you understand the intention behind the course.

Is this course refundable?

Due to the nature and depth of the content, which has been refined over the course of 10 years, this training is non-refundable in order to protect the intellectual property of the Matt Giordano School of Yoga. Should you have financial issues come up, extended payment plans will be available. Should you have physical issues arise, extended course access will be provided on a case-by-case basis.

What will I be able to teach?

Upon completion of the training, you will be certified to teach various forms of Hatha and Vinyasa public and private classes. This training prepares you for more in-depth offerings such as workshops, immersions, retreats, and 3-5 day trainings.

Will I learn how to heal injuries?

Yoga teachers are not certified to diagnose or heal physical injuries. That said, you will accumulate appropriate knowledge for injury prevention and management, which may promote or support the healing process of basic injuries. Learning to work with students who have injuries will be a part of this course. The posture breakdown videos will include “injury management” and “common muscular patterns” to build your intellectual understanding of the body and build your confidence to work with a wide range of bodies.

This training is Yoga Alliance Certified under the Matt Giordano School of Yoga.

Due to COVID-19, this course will allow you to submit your certificate to Yoga Alliance so long as you complete the course by January 1, 2022. 

What is Yoga Alliance (YA)?

In my own words, not theirs, YA is an organization that works to keep quality control of yoga. Mostly, they make sure yoga schools like mine have a curriculum that adheres to what they consider to be important.

Do I need Yoga Alliance?

This really depends. If you don’t know what it is, then you likely don’t need to be a part of it. In the US, you may be required by gyms and yoga studios to be with YA. If you plan to purchase liability insurance, you may want to check with insurance companies in your country to see what their requirements are.

Is there licensing for yoga?

No, yoga is recognized as group fitness in most of the world, so there is no official licensing the way there is, for example, with massage. Each country differs, so it would be good to check if your country has any licensing.
