What You Can Expect:

Join Jared McCann for his second JMY Advanced Teacher Training program. The training is a 500-HR Yoga Alliance certified training, and will be offered to individuals who have completed any 200-hr training. Our Advanced Teacher Training includes two 8 day intensive modules at Lighthouse Yoga School in Brooklyn, New York. There is a 7 day break between modules, where each student is required to do a daily 90 minute  sadhana, or spiritual practice, and take class twice a day at Lighthouse Yoga School. However students are permitted to go home during the break to attend to personal matters if necessary, as long as they continue with their daily sadhana practice.

Jared's 500-HR Teacher Training is designed to build upon the 200-HR training and give students access to the higher teachings of yoga.  Students will expand their teaching knowelege and will be given the tools to guide students into the deeper more subtle practices of yoga, advanced postures will also be practiced and taught.  Trainees will learn in-depth knowledge of Marma points, and Bandhas beyond the classic Uddiyana, Mula, and Jalandhara.  There will be a daily Kriya, Mantra, and Pranayama practice required during the month long intensive, as well as a similar practice to be completed after the training ends.  We will begin to introduce the kriyas of Babaji as taught by the Bihar Yoga School.  Trainees will also be taught more extensive Mantras, mainly taken from the Rig Veda and from Amma. We will have a Puja, or fire ceremony, to purify the mind and awaken the divine within.  Jared will teach a handful of psychic development exercises to keep Sushumna Nadi open, and to maintain balance throughout the 13 main chakras along the spine and above the crown.  Students are required to have had a steady practice of asana and pranayama for at least 3 years to apply for this training.  This is mandatory unless students have done similar spiritual work from a different lineage.

Each Trainee is required to adhere to self-practice guidelines and commit to daily practice during a 3 month period, as well as, adhere to strict dietary guidelines during a 3 month period.

Participants who attend all dates and successfully meet minimum program requirements will receive a certificate of completion to be able to register with Yoga Alliance at the RYT-500 Level, if you have a previous 200hr certification. If you do not have a 200hr certification you will receive a 300hr JMY Certificate as well as a 300hr YA designation, you will only be able to use this to register with Yoga Alliance once you have completed a 200hr certification.

Please note: Each trainee is encouraged and expected to abide by a vegetarian diet during a three month duration.  Each trainee is expected to refrain from processed sugar, bread and gluten, dairy products, and intoxicants for the course of 3 months.
