The Yoga Course Details
The 300 hour Yoga Teacher Training, Goa offers a modern approach to teaching yoga with emphasis on developing a practice in Vinyasa Flow. The course offers a comprehensive module in Yoga Anatomy and Physiology. Students will gain technical information on how to develop a safe and intelligent yoga practice.
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.
Group sizes are small and intimate. We cap number at 8 students on this course.

- understand the technicalities of advanced Vinyasa Flow postures and complex transitions
- learn advanced vinyasa flow sequencing
- learn how to adjust postures
- develop commentaries to give anatomical and technical instructions
- take a holistic approach to the anatomy of yoga through the fascial body
- connect with meditation and advanced breath work
- study from The Yoga Sutras and Bhagavad Gita
The Anatomy of Yoga
Students will learn about the skeletal muscular system. Julia teaches is a practical way and she is fanatical about the fascial body. This module will include the anatomy of the shoulder, hips, spine and feet alongside working with the Superficial Front and Back Lines, Spiral Lines and Arm Lines. She will explore the concept of biotensegrity. This is undoubtedly a very technical module and Julia integrates Yoga Anatomy throughout the YTTC in order to bring an intelligent approach to your practice and teaching. Students will learn about anatomy through experimental and functional movement.
Advanced Vinyasa Flow
Morning practice will include 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 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. 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. And so, this module allows students to demonstrate what they have learnt as a result of doing the 300 hr TTC with ample opportunity for experimenting.
Ashtanga Yoga Adjustments
Students will develop a hands on approach to teaching skills. An adjustment allows deeper access to postures and it is an important part of the practice of Ashtanga Yoga. Adjusting in Vinyasa Flow has becoming increasingly popular. The Adjustments Module will outline what you can and cannot do in a yoga class and how to take precautions when teaching a yoga class.
Advanced Yoga Workshops
Julia teaches these workshops in a fun and progressive environment with the aim of understanding key Vinyasa Flow postures and transitions. Students will explore postures in terms of a combination of traditional alignment and functional movement, looking at how we move from posture to posture with the transference of weight being as important as the posture itself. This is how we develop an intelligent practice. Workshops include:
- Shoulder Stability
- Happy Hips
- Ashtavakrasana and More
- Handstand – It’s all about the Journey!
- Backbending – A Transition
- Myofascia Release
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.
