Introduction | 300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Goa
This is an advanced Yoga Teacher Training Course in Goa. We advise students to have yoga teaching experience along with a 200 Hour YTTC certification. This will allow students to fully access the curriculum to build on existing teaching skills and knowledge.
Our 300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Goa offers a modern approach to teaching yoga with emphasis on developing a practice in Vinyasa Flow. We will support you to bring your most authentic self to your teaching practice. This course offers new depths of knowledge and experience grounded in Yoga Anatomy, creative sequencing, and adjustments. Students will gain technical information on how to develop a safe and intelligent yoga practice. And you will be guided to deepen your personal knowledge & practice, so that you can be the best yoga teacher or practitioner you can be.
Group sizes are small and intimate to give you the best experience and personal guidance. We cap numbers at 8 students on this course.

The Anatomy of Yoga
Students will learn about the skeletal muscular system. This module will include the anatomy of the shoulder, hips, spine, and feet. We will also work with an understanding of the Fascial body: the Superficial Front and Back Lines, Spiral Lines and Arm Lines. Julia’s teaching is incredibly practical. She is fanatical about the fascial body and together we will explore the concept of biotensegrity. This is undoubtedly a very technical module in the YTTC and we will integrate the learning of this throughout our practical work and teaching. Students are encouraged to learn about anatomy through experience, experimentation, and functional movement.
Advanced Vinyasa Flow
Our morning practice in Goa will include Advanced Vinyasa Flow. Students will develop a self-practice of Vinyasa Flow by understanding how to prepare the body to achieve or advance postures. Peak yoga postures will include: King Pigeon, Vasthistasana, Grasshopper, Koundinyasana 1&2. The classes will bring together the traditional alignment of Ashtanga Yoga and contemporary wisdom of functional movement.
The course will encourage students to build on their existing repertoire of teaching tools. This module will focus on how to develop a yoga commentary and discover your unique teaching style and energy. The teachers will use technical anatomical language to give an accessible and popular commentary. Advanced teaching methods will include The Music Flow, Mandala Sequencing, Peak Posture Pyramid, and Vinyasa. This module allows students to demonstrate what they have learnt and engage in experimentation and playful discovery.
Ashtanga Yoga Adjustments
Students will develop a hands-on approach to teaching and adjustments. An adjustment allows deeper access to postures and is an important part of the practice of Ashtanga Yoga. Adjusting in Vinyasa Flow has becoming increasingly popular and is an excellent thing to be able to offer your students. The Adjustments Module will outline what you can and cannot do in a yoga class and how to take precautions when teaching and adjusting a yoga class.
Advanced Yoga Workshops
Play time! Julia offers these workshops in a fun and progressive environment with the aim of understanding key Vinyasa Flow postures and transitions. Students will explore postures through a lens of traditional alignment mixed with functional movement. We discover how we move from posture to posture with the transference of weight, be present with mind-body-spirit, and find integrity to practice yoga on and off the mat. This is how we develop an intelligent practice.
- Shoulder Stability – Supporting Yourself!
- Happy Hips – Everybody Feels!
- Ashtavakrasana and more
- Handstand – It’s all about the journey!
- Backbending – Vulnerability & Transition
- Myofascia Release – What keeps us stuck?
Workshops will include mini flows, yogi drills and mindful stretching, partner work and exploration, cuing tips and playtime.
Students will learn about the surrounding philosophies of Ashtanga Yoga and the history of this practice. Teachings will come from Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras and Bhagavad Gita. To immerse ourselves in our yoga practice is to understand it’s surrounding philosophy and application. Discussion will be supported and encouraged as we discover what it means to uphold these philosophies as 21st century yogis.
We want students to stay with us at the resort. Firstly, we want students to fully immerse themselves into the yoga training. Secondly, we want our guest to eat together as a family. Thirdly, we have a range of accommodation types to suit all budgets. The tranquility of the resort provides an excellent study environment and opportunity for transformation on many levels.

Absolutely loved my 300hr YTT lead by Julia. Her passion for yoga & anatomy especially is contagious and still gives me a solid base for my yoga therapy training two years later. 😃
So if you’re still hesitating: She’s a fantastic teacher with the uncanny ability to present even the more complex topics in an easy to understand (and remember), practical way! 😄

Are there any requirements?
Ideally, you need a 200 hours Yoga Alliance registered certification although this is not essential. Students should have a strong & steady practice; some foundational knowledge of Anatomy & Physiology and Yoga Philosophy; teaching experience. This course attracts yoga teachers and so is taught at a much higher level than that 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training.
What kind of certificate do I receive?
The course is registered withYoga Alliance. This is an internationally recognised certification. You will receive your certificate on completion of your 4 weeks with us.
How much is the first instalment?
You will need to pay a 500 euro deposit to secure your place. This is payable through Wise. The rest is due on arrival and cash is the cheapest way to pay your tuition fees.
Is dinner included?
We do not include dinner as our guests usually go to Patnem Beach for sunset after a day of yoga classes. There are so many great restaurants on Patnem Beach and in the surrounding area. We encourage our guests to sample delights ranging from local Goan cuisine to trendy vegan treats.
Do I have to take my own yoga mat?
We have yoga mats for you to use but we recommend that you bring your own.
