Contact Hours

  • You will begin your +300 hours with 288 onsite/contact hours training over the year from March 2019 to March 2020.  Please note that when you compare 300 hour courses it is wise to ask what are the contact hours. Many 300 hour courses have as little as 150 hours class room training as this is the minimum required if the course is registered with Yoga Alliance UK.
  • Non-contact Hours – The remaining hours will be made up as follows:
    • Teaching: It is a requirement that you teach your own classes and workshops.  Noeleen will support you with any issues or questions as they arise. This can be done by email or by phone.
    • Project: Making an in depth study on a subject of your choice. Researching, writing and presenting your findings.  Usually this takes the form of a 1.5-2 hour workshop which  you present to the group and is open to the external Ard Nahoo yoga community.
    • Reading– deepening your knowledge of key areas such as Anatomy and Philosophy

Guest Teachers


Jayendra began practicing hatha yoga and meditation a long time ago, and is amazed at how we continue to learn and grow in our practice, teaching, and in all of life. He is from the U.S., and has lived in Europe the last 12 years, where he has taught approximately twenty Immersions and Teacher Trainings in the Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Spain, France, and England. He lives in Amersfoort, the Netherlands, where he teaches at Bindi Yoga Studio. Since ASHY got started he has been assisting European teachers through the certification process, and for the last two years, he has served as co-coordinator of the Anusara Curriculum team. The group created an amazing curriculum for  new 300-Hour Advanced Teacher Training. Since Anusara began in 1997, he has been studying the core elements of Anusara methodology, and it’s a pleasure to take that knowledge to the next level through the ATT. Also, as a student of Paul Mueller-Ortega’s Shaiva Tantra and Neelakantha Meditation, he really enjoy sharing the practice of meditation and the whole spectrum of yoga philosophy.

Jayendra will be joining us at Ard Nahoo for the second Module in March, 27th-31st.
