With a scope both deep and wide, this training program fosters the growth of both the student and teacher in you through ample exploratory, integrated learning, and practice teaching.
In this training, you will learn to artfully create a sequence and teach asana skillfully. My mission is to prepare you to develop safe and sensible yoga classes for all levels of studentship. You will learn to accurately observe students’ bodies, assist them into optimally aligned asana through the use of words, basic hands-on adjustments, modifications and the use of props. An introduction to functional anatomy and physiology will form the basis for the study of asana and sequencing.
I believe a deeper understanding of yoga and how to teach asana comes from a consistent commitment to your personal practice, and your practice will become a well-spring of resources and inspiration for you as a teacher. As such, asana, bio-mechanics and sequencing are at the core of this training. With Asana Labs and Practice Teaching sessions every day, you will deepen your knowledge of the bio-mechanics of yoga and develop communication skills to transmit this knowledge to your own students.

This training and practice schedule requires participants to fully immerse themselves in yoga. Participants should be sincerely interested and ready to study intensively. You are expected to be healthy and able. As such, we recommend a regular yoga practice of at least one year prior to this training. This training may be taken to deepen your own knowledge, with or without the intention to teach.
Please note that both the training and manual are solely in English. As such, a solid understanding and knowledge of English is a must.
