Are you ready to take your yoga teaching to the next level with an experiential and practical program? 
Open to yoga teachers of all levels from all backgrounds and lineages, the Lighting the Path 300-hour Advanced Teacher Training is taught across four independent 50-hour modules and offers a unique blend of intensive yoga asana practices, practical teaching experience, and an in-depth focus on sequencing, assisting, alignment and business principles. 
Morning yoga and meditation intensives from 7:00am-10:00am are a required part of each module, and help students connect into their own practice as a platform for growth as a teacher. 
Afternoon sessions help students create a vision for their life and teaching career, and build the support system for success. Each module focuses on the foundations of this support, as well as the physical and emotional aspects of the yoga practice, giving teachers necessary tools to teach and work with a wide range of student populations.
These four modules (or only the morning yoga and meditation intensives) can be a part of anyone’s 300-hour journey with Yoga Tree.  Students are invited to register for single modules or for all four modules in the series. 
The core curriculum of the LTP 300 is spread across four 50-hour modules for a total of 200 hours. Each module is five days in duration and focuses on a different aspect of advanced teaching and asana. You must be a graduate of a 200-Hour Teacher Training program in order to attend.

*Module 1: Building a Strong Base (June 10-14, 2019) 
This foundational module is deeply rooted in sequencing and in building strong, thorough skills in assisting, alignment, and yogic business. Students will leave the five-day program with a toolkit for sequencing safe and dynamic classes, effective cueing for common alignment concerns, and tools for confident teaching, and professional communication and marketing. Ideal for teachers of all levels who are looking to refine the way that they create, teach, manage, and market their classes.
*Module 2: Bringing your Soul to the Teacher's Mat (October 21-25, 2019) 
Weave your passion and purpose into your teaching. Learn practical skills for theming classes, sequencing towards an intention, and creating workshops and retreats. This module will use process work, discussion, and teaching exercises to explore and expand your authentic voice and gifts as a teacher and help refine how you share your unique offerings with your students.

*Module 3: Tailoring your Teaching (June 8-12, 2020) 
Teach to the student in front of you in real time. Leave prepared to effectively sequence and teach to students with diverse backgrounds and skill levels – even if they are all in the same class! Build skills in working with a wide variety of student populations, including in-depth sessions on working with injuries, pose modification options, prenatal and other specialized students. Sessions on the business of yoga explore building opportunities both inside and outside of a studio setting, writing effective newsletters, and producing authentic marketing materials.

*Module 4: The Emotionally Intelligent Teacher (November 9-13, 2020)
Connect with your students beyond the physical components of the practice. We will focus on the emotional and energetic body, work with seeing energy and holding space, and build a toolkit for sequencing and assisting towards the emotional and energetic aspects of the practice and the subtle body. Additional sessions include in-depth discussion of pranayama and meditation, as well as the emotional aspects of money.
Pete or one of his lead assistants will host the following information sessions to share additional details and answer questions.

Vinyasa flow yoga instructor Pete Guinosso leads four 50-hour Lighting the Path Advanced Teacher Training modules, beginning June 10-14 at Yoga Tree Potrero in SF
Pete Guinosso (E-RYT 500) helps students connect with their hearts. His gentle guidance and intuitive assists allow students of all levels to step out of their comfort zones and find their own authentic path in the practice. His passion to guide students into their role as skilled, authentic yoga teachers led him to create his signature Lighting the Path teacher training. Pete tours internationally for workshops, festivals, trainings and retreats and has been a featured presenter at Wanderlust, Bhaktifest, Asia Yoga Conference, Yoga Alliance and Yoga Journal. Whether his classroom is the studio or a desert floor, Pete’s heart-centered style offers students a strong vinyasa flow with room to breathe and feel. Pete draws inspiration from his work with Ana Forrest, Rusty Wells, Annie Carpenter, and Jason Crandell, his study of Buddhist meditation and his background in competitive running and cycling.

Additional Info 
*How does the LTP 300-hour program work? 
The core curriculum of the LTP 300 is spread across four 50-hour modules for a total of 200 hours. Each module is five days in duration and focuses on a different aspect of advanced teaching and asana, and includes 45 contact hours and 5 non-contact hours with Pete and other senior LTP faculty. 
The remaining 100 hours of study will be tailored to each student’s teaching focus and interests. This allows students to pursue advanced workshops and trainings that will benefit them most as a teacher, and also includes 50 hours of mentorship with Lighting the Path faculty. All hours and enrollments are pre-approved by the Pete G Yoga team in order to apply towards 300-hour completion. 
What makes the training different? 
Universal teaching concepts. 
Individual practice and development. 
We know that every teacher is different. The LTP 300-hour program allows teachers to develop their own style and specialization, while offering a curriculum that provides a broad base for advanced instruction. Each module enables enrolled students to cultivate necessary skills for effective and heart-centered teaching: deep knowledge of asana, alignment and modifications, classroom presence, consistency, and authenticity. The program will cover components of running and expanding a successful yoga business, integrating other passions into yoga offerings, and holistic print and social media marketing. 
Lighting the Path Registered Yoga School is designed to be experiential. Intensive morning yoga practices help students embody the skills being taught in afternoon sessions. Students work together and individually to build classes and workshops that can be used right away and tailored to specific student populations. Trainees will receive constructive feedback on their teaching, and develop a plan for expanding their presence in the classroom.
