Curriculum

Anusara School of Hatha Yoga is a highly esteemed and professional yoga school in which teachers are rigorously trained over several years in a broad and in-depth Image 10curriculum that encompasses studies in eastern philosophy and yoga history, biomechanics, anatomy, detailed postural alignment, therapeutics, and the art of teaching yoga.

All teachers from the Anusara School of Hatha Yoga are extensively trained in the key areas of yoga teaching such as interweaving heart-oriented themes and Tantric philosophy with postural alignment instruction in order to inspire students to embody the highest purposes of the yoga practice. Other key areas of teaching in which Anusara yoga instructors are trained include the principles of the breath, meditation, postural sequencing, observation, verbal and physical adjustments, postural demonstration, use of voice, and organization of course curriculum.

In its overall curriculum, the Anusara School of Hatha Yoga includes a wide range of classes that accommodates students of all physical ability and level of yoga experience. Beginning students, children and seniors, expectant mothers, students with therapeutic limitations, and world-class advanced yoga teachers can all find Anusara yoga classes to appropriately suit them.

Within the Anusara School of Hatha Yoga curriculum, there are two classifications of teacher: certified Anusara yoga teacher and Anusara-Inspired yoga teacher. More information about each type of teacher, and a directory of Anusara yoga teachers from around the world can be found here.

The harmony of the Anusara yoga community is maintained by adhering to a set of Ethical Guidelines. All Anusara yoga teachers are required to follow these Ethical IMG_0540Guidelines in order to maintain their teaching license as an Anusara yoga teacher. Please see Anusara School of Hatha Yoga’s Ethical Guidelines.

Since ASHY’s inception in the fall of 2012, teachers working on the Curriculum Team have begun reviewing the Anusara curriculum, teacher training process, and licensing guidelines. New curriculum guidelines will meet or exceed all 200 hour and 500 hour Yoga Alliance standards.
