The Mission of Brad’s Unique Advanced 300hr Training:
“The goal of Yoga is to live life more skilfully, experience less fear, more power and creativity, more joy, and to become the most embodied, light filled, purposeful version of your Self! That is first and foremost the goal of my school and specifically this 300hr Training. I have two distinct objectives in this extensive 300hr Yoga training”:
To create more light-bearing, grounded, aware, wise, compassionate, nurturing, powerful, and embodied individuals into the world. Healing and changing the world always begins with ourselves.
To educate, encourage, and empower students to become exceptional teachers and guide’s who make a powerful and positive impact on people’s lives using the philosophy, science, and practice of these ancient wisdom traditions.
Who is this training for?
You do not have to be a teacher to participate in these modules! I invite any genuine and committed practitioner to join these events for his or her own benefit. I simply ask that you are a genuine seeker know how to perform basic Yoga poses and breathing exercises. (Please see "Yoga Alliance" section below for further clarity on the Yoga Alliance qualification)
This advanced 300hr Embodied Wisdom program was methodically developed by Brad Hay specifically for dedicated students/seekers and or teachers who want to learn to practice and embody these powerful and transformational ancient wisdom teachings and practices. This timeless wisdom is exceptionally relevant to our modern times and teach us how to access the absolute best of ourselves in any situation especially the adversity we face in the current era.
I encourage both committed students and also those who are already teachers or plan to be in the future to dive into these teachings.

However, if you do wish to obtain the legitimate Yoga Alliance 500 YTT qualification, you WILL need to have completed a Yoga Alliance Registered 200hr Yoga Teacher Training as a prerequisite to the 300hr program.

This 300hr Advanced Training format consists of 7 compulsory 5-Day (50hr) modules - Because of the online nature of these modules, each training is technically 40 "contact" hours and 10 "non-contact" hours (The minimum hours for the Yoga Alliance 300hr Certification are 280 contact & 20 non-contact). This training is not currently taught in one long event. The modules will be offered separately throughout year. It’s possible when COVID restrictions are completely lifted Brad may offer the 300hr in two 150hr modules at some point.
NOTE: We now have 7 compulsory modules in order to comply with the required amount of contact hours to meet criteria, and apologise for any confusion in the recent changes to the format. If you have completed any 5 day trainings with Brad since 2018 they will count towards your 300hr.
Each module focuses on a specific aspect of each of the Vedic systems of Ayurveda, Classical Patanjali Yoga, and Tantra Yoga. All trainings are a combination of lectures and discussions, and also practices including asana, bandha, pranayama, meditation, self-enquiry and Yoga nidra.
The 7 Compulsory 5-day Modules:
(BT = Brad Training)
(PYMT = ParaYoga Master Training)
We are all human and to some degree are under the influence of our limitations, meaning our repetitive, unconscious thinking patterns and ways of living. One of the main goals of Tantric Hatha Yoga is to bring those patterns to light, burn off and disempower the unhelpful or destructive ones, create new powerful positive ones, and completely transform your experience of life.
The idea of being an authentic Yogi is not about being overly passive or pretending to be some version of perfect. It’s to be consciously making a significant effort to become a more clear and powerful expression of our highest true self. When we are in this state we know what to do and when to do it. Sometimes this means taking action, being in your power and assertive. This takes time, courage, practice, dedication, and very importantly the guidance of a knowledgeable, skilled, authentic, and embodied teacher.
