_____________________________________________________________

A training so nice, we're doing it twice! Lighthouse Yoga School is excited to offer another opportunity to join us in 2023 for our 300hr Teacher Training in Danena, Sicily! Learn to practice and teach our signature yoga class, JM Vinyasa, with clarity and precision. This training continues to be our most immersive and in-depth training to date, as we live on-site together for 3 weeks at the beautiful retreat center, Danena Sicily, with Jared McCann (E-RYT500) and Rebecca Causey (E-RYT500, FRCms), who share over 36 years of teaching experience. Our time together will be an immersion in yoga asana, anatomy, philosophy and practice-teaching. We will cultivate a daily asana and sadhana practice and study each posture in-depth from the perspective of student and teacher.  


Our 300hr Advanced JM Vinyasa Teacher Training is designed to help students enhance and refine their teaching skills and personal movement + meditation practice. Trainees will learn to effectively teach and safely practice more advanced asana and inversions, cultivate a daily Sadhana practice that includes mantra, kriya, pranayama and meditation, as well as take a deeper look into yoga history and philosophy, yoga anatomy, physiology and functional movement. 


Students who complete all the elements of this training will be eligible to receive a 300hr certification from Yoga Alliance, or add it to a previous 200hr certification to meet the 500-RYT requirement. Students who satisfactorily complete this program will also receive a 300hr certificate from Jared McCann and their contact information and teaching credentials will be added to our list of certified JMY teachers around the world.

  5. Incorporate yoga history + philosophy into practice and teaching
  6. Develop + maintain a Sadhana practice (meditation, advanced mantra, pranayama, kriya)
  7. Build strength, improve flexibility, and refine technique through the inclusion of drills and other movement practices.
  8. Understand anatomy + physiology as applied to yoga asana, including how to guide students with limitations and injuries
  9. Utilize and cue advanced bandhas to increase stability, strength and energetic awareness
  10. Learn to teach excellent private yoga lessons
  11. How to succeed in the business of Yoga

I always make some kind of new unexpected achievement in my asana practice when I do an event w/ Jared. The location and the food we’re a dream; they even made an amazingly delicious vegan cake for my birthday, which was celebrated with collective joy and utmost cheer. The teaching practice was really helpful for someone who has never led a class before. Rebecca and Jared clearly put a lot of energy into this, in particular the first week was so intense, probably one of the best weeks of my life. I think they were also conscious of making it an accessible experience for everyone.
By Sean G for Sicily 300hr Teacher Training with Jared McCann on 06 Dec, 2022
I will always be grateful for this experience, Danena is a magical and beautiful place, full of life and very comfortable. The food was a dream and every detail well taken care of. I loved the 300 hr training with Jared Mc Cann and Rebecca Causey, they are excellent teachers and guides, taking care of everybody with whole hearted experience. Thankyou ! I definitely would do it again and again.
By Cecilia V for Sicily 300hr Teacher Training with Jared McCann on 04 Oct, 2022
There is a good reason why I am now attending to these mediation intensives with Jared for about 10 month (and plan to continue): it works. It helps to stay consistent in my pranayama and meditation practice and provides a community that understands and supports each other to integrate yoga in our lives to a whole new level. Jared brings his experience, open mind and a lot of compassion to these meditation intensives.
By Aimée K for Back To My Roots on 05 Sep, 2022
It was awesome. Exploring all the depths of my roots as family and old friends and relationships, working on reestablishing a strong foundation. Reconnecting with myself, my past, releasing past traumas. It was very helpful and helps me get through this, which I very much need.
By Jana S for Back To My Roots on 29 Aug, 2022
The accommodations and food and yoga were great. And big thanks to Marina for allowing me special kitchen privileges! However, a couple of things I reasonably want for $3000 a week: There is hot water for showers only during certain hours of the day. We weren't told this upon arrival, so after two attempts at a hot shower, I took one with cool/lukewarm water. Not good. Turn on the hot water. Also, this is the 21st century -- so in spite of Cocoon's virtue signaling "great opportunity" demurral/excuse in the small print ("Please keep in mind we are in the countryside, not NYC. This is a great opportunity to leave your phone in your room, and enjoy nature, a conversation, or a lovely book") -- there should be a working, stable internet connection in every room, not just in the main gathering space. As it was, you had to sit in the freezing foyer on an uncomfortable bench to do any reasonable internet business or work. Don't tell me I have to talk to someone or read a book in my free time. I'm a grown up. Zero stars for this. Cheers!
