The art of teaching yoga starts here!
The Anusara Yoga 200-hour teacher training is a one of a kind alignment-based, tantric-inspired, Hatha Yoga teacher training program that trains yoga students to become not only great yoga students but skilled yoga teachers in a specialized form of yoga. The core curriculum trains participants in the art of practicing and art of teaching Anusara yoga.
The training is a 2 part cyclical program. While Part 1 (100-hour Immersion) focuses on studentship and immersing into one’s own practice of Anusara yoga, Part 2 focuses on teaching methodology, and focuses on developing participants knowledge and confidence to teach alignment-based, tantric-inspired Hatha yoga classes as skillful Anusara Elements™ or Anusara-Inspired™ teachers.
Part 1 - 100-hour Immersion Training
What makes a great yoga teacher? A great yoga student! This is why Part 1 of the 200-hour teacher training is dedicated to immersing students into the practice and study of yoga as a tradition and lifepath. As a unique study program, the Immersion Training will help you develop and deepen your yoga/meditation practice, expand your knowledge of the Anusara yoga method and of the major topics of study in the yogic tradition.
Through in-class lectures, group activities, asana practices, journaling and home study activities, you’ll explore the following subjects:
- The Anusara yoga method (in practice), including:
- The fundamentals of Non-dual Tantric Philosophy
- Universal Principles of Alignment™
- Anusara yogalabs and workshops
- Yoga History, philosophy and a study of the popular yogic views and their texts including: Karma yoga, Classical Yoga, and Classical Tantric Yoga
- Anatomy of movement
- Subtle body anatomy (including the chakras)
- Tantric Meditation
- Ayurveda & Lifestyle
- And more!
ONLINE INDEPENDENT STUDY PROGRAM (between Part 1 & Part 2):
In the break between Part 1 and Part 2 you will be provided with the “Yoga: Its History, Philosophies and Your Practice” home study audio course, to complete at your own pace, prior to starting Part 2. This course will help deepen your understanding of the training material as well as develop your own home practice of philosophy study, contemplation and meditation.
Part 2 - 100-hour Teaching Yoga
Now that students have bathed in the yogic teachings (through the 100-hour Immersion) and have deepen their personal relationship with yoga, Part 2 teaches participants how to teach what they learned. By learning how to use the Anusara teaching tools and practicing using those tools, participants will gain and develop the knowledge, skill and confidence to teach uplifting and inspiring alignment-based, tantric-inspired Hatha yoga classes. Those who wish to continue towards Anusara licensing will be able to do so upon graduation.
