Advanced Teacher Training

Anusara yoga has long been known and respected for its high quality teacher training program, which begins with the 100 hours of Anusara Immersion and continues with the 100-Hour Level 1 Anusara Teacher Training.  The two together comprise an integrated 200-Hour Teacher Training program. After completing it, one can apply for the Anusara Elements license and register with the Yoga Alliance of the U.S. at the 200 Hour level.

Anusara Immersion is all about practice and the theory behind the practices of yoga. The Level 1 Teacher Training is totally dedicated to the art and skill of teaching yoga asana, using the Anusara technique that has proven to be so powerful and clear. Some main topics of the Teacher Training are teaching with a class theme, teaching theUniversal Principles of Alignment, observation and adjustments, sequencing, instructing the poses with skill and clarity, and finding your own voice as a yoga teacher, all within the context of living and sharing a life of yoga. The main technique of the Teacher Training is the trainer demonstrates and explains a teaching skill, then the students practice teaching it in pairs, small groups, and eventually to the entire class.

Before applying for the Level 1 Teacher Training, one should have a strong working knowledge of Anusara philosophy and the Universal Principles of Alignment, which can be gained through an Anusara Immersion.

300-Hour Advanced Teacher Training

Amersfoort, the Netherlands from April 2016 – June 2018

Starting in the year 2014, I have served as the co-coordinator (with my now good friend and esteemed colleague Karen Sprute-Francovich) of the Anusara Yoga Curriculum Team. Our first big project was to lead a group of dedicated teachers in creating the curriculum for Anusara’s new 300-Hour Advanced Teacher Training (ATT). I began offering my own ATT in April 2016.

I am amazed at how much the students/teachers in the ATT have received after only one year of the training. This is apparent in three areas:

  1. Their confidence in their teaching has increased a great deal. For example, many are applying for the Inspired and Certified Anusara licenses.
  2. After studying a topic like “Teaching with a Theme” or “Teaching with the Universal Principles of Alignment”, everyone teaches a 20-minute session to the others and receives feedback. Over and over, we’ve been happy with our increased teaching skills.
  3. And like with all of our Anusara events, we’re having the experience of being a part of something bigger, in this case, a community of good-hearted people with a common intention to enhance our experience of life!
