This Yoga Alliance recognized 200 Hour Ashtanga Teacher Training Certification is a practical training course designed to make you a confident and effective Ashtanga Yoga Instructor – for all levels of students. The purpose of this program is to provide a supportive environment in which students begin to connect with their inner teacher, internal wisdom and authentic voice.

The training is designed to provide participants with a solid foundation of knowledge and information with which you can confidently and effectively facilitate an Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga class for beginners.

We intend to support each student as they develop, deepen, appreciate and expand their understanding of their true authentic self.

This compilation of materials shares the ancient practice of Ashtanga in terms that every yoga enthusiast can learn from, both the basic beginner to the most advanced practitioner.

The Ashtanga Yoga Manual

The first written material on the once oral tradition of Ashtanga, written by Larry Schultz. The manual includes detailed information on some of the most fundamental parts of the practice: breath, dristi and bandhas and much more. Also sharing the Full Primary Series with modifications and illustrations, it serves as a classic tool to take your practice anywhere.

It’s Yoga Teacher Training Workbook

With six lessons that coincide with the Ashtanga Manual, these exercises assist practitioners in deepening their understanding in a practical way by allowing students to explore the lessons in their own time and space.

We also bring you the Chant CD and Booklet, which work together sharing pronunciation of the Sanskrit names of the poses and follow along chants. Reema Datta, a Sanskrit scholar shares her deep knowledge of this ancient language of yoga.

Plus, a DVD of the Primary Series taught by Larry Schultz allows students to bring it all together.

There are only four books, which are a part of the required reading list that are not included in these material and that you will need to purchase. The book titles and search links at Amazon.com provided below.
