We are excited to offer our Fall Yoga Alliance registered teacher training based on the principles of Ashtanga Yoga. Our purpose is to facilitate an awakening of the Inner Teacher- the clear, quiet voice that is ever-present behind the incessant, distracted chatter of the inner critic. Reliance upon this Inner Teacher as a source of guidance and wisdom is the aim of this practice, and Ashtanga Yoga comprises the system of techniques that reveals the voice of this guide.
Using the Primary Series of Ashtanga as our basis, students will gain a foundational training in vinyasa yoga. While our training covers a broad array of topics including philosophy, anatomy, history and Ayurveda, we emphasize the practical aspects of a committed yoga practice. We provide you with a simple system that you can use anytime and share with anyone for a happier, healthier existence. You will benefit from small class sizes and even smaller egos in our program. You will be integrated into our community and will witness how the practice shapes peoples' lives when practiced with dedication, consistency, and intention.
Our approach emphasizes the practice, your personal relationship to it and an experience of how one’s personal practice influences every aspect of our lives. You can be yourself, release what doesn't serve you and learn to relax, breathe and go with the flow. What do you think you need that you don't have? What do you want that you think you can't get? These are questions we'll explore as we witness the role that a yoga practice plays in changing the stories that we tell ourselves. Following a program laid out by our teacher Larry Schultz, we are, as Larry would often say, committed to "making the world less miserable, one breath at a time."
