Teacher Training

WILDLOTUS: 300-hour Advanced Teacher Training with Patrick Creelman

12 April - 12 July
WildLotus 300-Hour Teacher Training Programme aims to transform all participants with 3 main goals:
Expand your Yoga practice
Deepen your understanding of Yoga
Stabilise and mature your teaching from a clear position of values and skill

WildLotus 300-hour Teacher Training is a Professional Teacher Certification Programme. This programme offers a cohesive, multi-specialist approach to teacher training that blends the best of the yoga tradition from the east and the west. Our faculty are highly-trained, experienced, inspiring professionals with a profound understanding of the transformative power of Yoga.
WildLotus 300-hour Teacher Training aims to deepen the direct experience of yoga for yoga teachers. Our programme emphasises students’ personal practice as the source of their teaching and includes a comprehensive study of the techniques and mechanics of the fundamental postures as well as the tools necessary to teach and inspire others. To deepen their education, students will also study functional anatomy and physiology; explore Yoga’s key philosophical teachings in a practical way; practice meditation and pranayama; engage in the practice of hands-on adjustments; study group management and strong leadership skills.
WildLotus methodology will be presented and explored during practice sessions, teaching sessions, student-to-student assessments, and discussions to create sincere understanding and authenticity for teaching. This includes the mastery of asana alignment and prop use learned from the Iyengar School, sequencing knowledge from the Vinyasa/Flow approach, and the transformative element of Hot Yoga. Essentially the Iyengar school provides us with the methodology of precise anatomical and physical alignments and instructions as well as the profound understanding and application of the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali. The vinyasa and hot practice methodologies incorporate heat and flow into a dynamic approach to class programmes that are common starting points for teachers and students alike.

Yoga Alliance Accredited School
PURE Yoga is a registered school with Yoga Alliance. Our teacher training programmes and teachers are internationally accredited, have exclusive recognition and qualify for the 200-hr & 300-hr Yoga Alliance Certification.
Yoga Alliance is an international governing board for yoga teachers and training programmes in the U.S. and globally. Graduates of our programme are automatically eligible to register as a RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) with Yoga Alliance. Becoming a RYT means having a higher profile and gaining international recognition as a yoga teacher, attributes that many hiring studios look for.

Mission Statement
We offer this training in an effort to grow our community of committed yoga practitioners, empowering those who demonstrate dedication to a personal practice, by sharing the knowledge, skills and tools we have learned so they too can start teaching yoga.
We intend to guide trainees towards a healthy self-confidence, while at the same time invoking in them a sense of humility and excitement, knowing that they are at the beginning of a long journey.

Will I be able to teach right after I graduate from this programme?
Yes. All the course materials taught in this course prepare students with all the foundational knowledge and skills needed to become yoga teachers. Some students take it to deepen their own personal practice, kick-start a life transformational experience, while others do it to immediately start a teaching career. Others who do not want to proceed into teaching immediately would immerse into further trainings. More than half the students from our graduate programmes begin teaching friends, family, moving into part-time teaching in studios and then full-time teaching.
Will I be able to teach at PURE Yoga after graduating from this programme?
PURE Yoga is always open to applications and supports graduates from our programmes. We do have many teachers at PURE Yoga currently that are previous graduates. While we encourage graduates to apply with us, there is never a guarantee of job placement due to availability of openings or space within our studios. However, any graduates that apply with us are kept in our database and are advised if there are openings available.
Will PURE Yoga help with my Yoga Alliance application?
Upon successful graduation of our teacher training programmes, PURE Yoga will send the students a link to where they can apply for the Yoga Alliance certification. Our programmes and our school are Yoga Alliance accredited, meaning that students graduating from our programmes will “automatically” be approved when they apply to Yoga Alliance. From there, students will take their own steps in applying for Yoga Alliance – whether you are applying for 200-hour certification, 500-hour or so forth.
If I miss one day, will I be able to make up for it?
Students undergoing this programme must be fully committed and understand that 100% full attendance is required. They must also be willing to forgo most other personal or professional commitments for the duration of the programme – only with 100% attendance and completion of the course will students receive a certificate and no make-up of work will be given. Should there be any problems with this, students must speak with the faculty prior to the course and only under very special circumstances will it be considered.
Will I receive a certificate after the programme?
Upon successful completion, 100% attendance, and following the code of conduct – students will receive a Certificate of Completion from PURE Yoga for this teacher training programme.
