About The Event

atha yoga anushasanam

“Now, the practice of yoga begins” – First Sutra of Patanjali

Mission Statement

Atha means now, and that is fundamentally one of the deepest insights of spiritual practice: To bring us very deeply into the present moment. Atha is this kind of call of action for us to wake up now. It can be a mantra for daily living that moves off the mat and into our lives, bringing us back to what’s happening now.

This Yoga Teacher Training aims to provide a detailed foundation to Yoga, taking from the ancient teachings of Hatha, Ayurveda, Tantra, and Raja Yoga, and adapting it to suit our modern lives. Whether you choose to teach, or not, the course will not only deepen your practice and knowledge of yogic life but allow for a journey to further understanding of yourself.

Our highest intention is to offer a yoga teacher training program that allows our students to reach their fullest potential, in both the study and practice of yoga and self.

We pledge to always deliver superior training and service

to the students and graduates.

We feel it is our responsibility to share our knowledge through the provision of teacher role modeling, adherence to ethical standards, the curriculum objectives and standards of the International Yoga Alliance for registered yoga schools.

We are a diverse faculty committed to building an honest and supportive culture in which everyone is treated with warmth, dignity and respect.

Teacher Training Program Goals

  • To provide a comprehensive 200hour Yoga Teacher Certification to participants who seek to teach yoga to individuals in private or group settings.
  • To provide ongoing structured and unstructured support to participants leading to certification.
  • To certify participants under the educational standards set forth by Yoga Alliance for approved registered yoga schools.

Approaches to Learning

By exploring the many avenues through which students learn postures in the asana class, teacher training participants will be guided through a multitude of lectures, discussions, reading assignments, writing assignments, posture exploration, teach back demonstration exercises, posture sequencing, class development, meditation and personal reflection.

In addition, this program will:

  • Provide creative educational tools that aid participants in acquiring teaching skills.
  • Provide creative educational research projects that aid participants in understanding the many physical and psychological challenges students may bring to the asana class.

  • Provide ongoing feedback for the appropriate use of “touch” and “alignment.”
  • Provide ongoing feedback for the appropriate use of “touch during alignment.”
