This retreat is being held at the Spirit of Aloha Temple on Maui. Listen to the singing birds, rejuvenate at the ocean front gardens, enjoy waterfalls, meditation, get grounding, walk around the Grandmother Tree to hear from the Aina, and truly breath in the Spirit of Aloha.

Lodging will be in camping tents, which might sound intense, but it’s actually very doable. And it’s part of the yogic ethos of non-attachment, simplification, and living close to nature. There will be options to have a private tent or a shared tent. There are two indoor bathrooms and two outdoor showers with hot water and gorgeous views




Students who complete their subsequent trainings are eligible to register with Yoga Alliance as Registered Yoga Teachers (RYT®).


The primary topics you will cover are yoga philosophy and history, Sanskrit, teaching methodology, techniques, anatomy and physiology, yoga ethics and way of life, the business of yoga, and practicum (teaching).

Please note that if you already have your 200-hour training, either from Yoga Quest University or another Yoga Alliance-registered school, you are eligible to attend the 300-hour training.

The course will offer a deeper immersion in all of the topics covered in your 200-hour training, giving you a much better grounding in these areas. You will also be certified at the 500-hour level and eligible to register with Yoga Alliance as an RYT-500.

Program inclusions


The course manual is included, required and recommended books must be purchased separately in advance, as will other yoga accessories such as mat, yoga clothes, and etc.

Main topics

  • Yoga history
  • Yoga philosophy
  • Ethics of yoga
  • Sanskrit for yoga teachers
  • Asana
  • Pranayama
  • Mudras, bandhas, kriyas
  • Meditation
  • Yogic diet
  • Anatomy and physiology
  • Teaching methodology
  • Paths and styles of yoga
  • Yoga music, mantras, chanting
  • The business of yoga

In addition, the program will cover the following areas:

  • Aerial yoga (yoga swing)
  • Basics of Kundalini yoga
  • How to guide intensive breathwork sessions
  • Partner and flying yoga
  • Yoga dance
  • Ashtanga and Vinyasa flow yoga
  • Thai yoga massage / bodywork
  • Yin and Restorative yoga
  • Yoga documentaries
  • The yoga of relationship
  • Storytelling, and more

A lot of emphases will be placed on following your heart and finding your own unique voice and way of expression, even if you choose not to teach yoga. The skills, practices, and lessons learned from this training will well-serve you the rest of your life.

Truly Helpful also wants to emphasize that they do not promote any worldview or religious dogma (including dietary), but rather bring forward different viewpoints so that they might “consider the possibilities.”

They view yoga not as a religion but as a tool that can actually help you to practice your own faith and live your life more fruitfully. There are many paths of yoga (“paths are many, the truth is one”), and there are many styles; they want to help you find the ones that fit you best.

That said, the style that we mainly teach is a form of Hatha Vinyasa yoga (aka “Vinyasa flow”) that lends itself well to the creativity and intuition of the teacher and can be modified to fit different age groups, fitness levels, etc.

From the Yoga Alliance website

“An RYS 300-hour advanced training is designed to build upon and deepen the trainee’s understanding of the fundamental concepts of the practice and teaching of yoga that are generally taught at the RYS 200-hour level. An RYS 300-hour advanced training prepares its trainees to teach principles and techniques of yoga that are more advanced, more detailed, and/or subtler, and the training enables them to teach with greater skill than could reasonably be expected of an RYT 200.”
