200 Hour Anatomy of Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training and Yoga Alliance Certification Course

October 18, 2019

Sun Dog Yoga Studio is proud to offer the exciting 200 Hour Anatomy of Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training. We will build on the basic building blocks of the Eight Fold Path of Ashtanga Yoga and move through Yoga Philosophy, Ayurveda, Sanskrit, Teaching Principles and more. This training will give you the skills to become an effective yoga instructor, as well as bring you into a deeper appreciation of the fullness of the yogic path. Our emphasis throughout the training is to teach the power and depth of the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. You will learn how to teach in full the form “Yoga Chikitsa”, or “Yoga Therapy”, the Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga.

On a physical level, we will explore asana, safe and effective adjustments and touch, learning to see with a trained eye and feel with your sensitivities. We will cover physical anatomy and physiology with a practical, hands-on approach. In addition, we’ll explore energy anatomy, including chakras and nadis, and how these energetic forms relate to our physical body and systems, and vice versa. During the course you will deepen your journey through study of the Yoga Sutras, Pranayama, Meditation, Chanting, Mantra, and basic Sanskrit transliteration as it relates to our experience as teacher. You will be introduced to the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda, and how it relates to your yoga and your life. We will examine how to most effectively create individual yoga sessions, including therapeutic principles and basic bodywork therapy, and how these sessions may differ from teaching in groups. You will be given the guidelines to create the perfect yoga class that expresses what you have to offer, and brings the most out in your students. We will give instruction on Prenatal Yoga and Childrens Yoga. The business and marketing aspects of teaching yoga will be addressed, to help you easily move forward on your journey. Mentoring will be made available at the end of your training, should you need it. Homework will be assigned, as well as teaching assignments outside of our class time, to satisfy the hours needed for certification…and to help you move forward more comfortably as an instructor. There will also be a small number of required books to purchase, not included in your tuition price. The AAYT Training will be led by Shari Simon, E-RYT500 with Melissa Matt, RYT500, as well as additional guest teachers.

To help you deepen your personal practice, we include 40 classes at Sun Dog Yoga Studio during the time of the Training as part of your paid tuition.
