Anusara 100 h Teacher Training with Courtenay Willis and Silke Wilson

October 23, 2021 @ 10:00 am - April 24, 2022 @ 5:00 pm


Anusara® yoga is based on an inspiring, life-affirming, non-dual Tantric philosophy that looks for the good in all people and all things, Universal Principles of Alignment™ that allow us to experience this goodness in our bodies, minds and hearts, and applying these inspiring teachings in your daily life.  If you would like to do a practice that is challenging while remaining safe, that maintains a sense of flow while aligning our bodies in a powerful way, and that is adaptable to all ability levels and interests, then this is the course for you! We also explore the profound yoga practices of pranayama and meditation.

  “The highest intention of practicing Anusara yoga is to align with the flow of Grace, to awaken to the truth that our essential nature is part of this divine flow, and to lovingly and joyfully serve this flow.”

Anusara yoga has long been known and respected for its high quality teacher training program, which begins with 100 hours of Anusara Immersion and continues with the 100-h Level 1 Anusara Teacher Training.  The two together comprise an integrated 200-h 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.

The Teacher Training is 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 the Universal 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 Teacher Training (which follows the 100 H Immersion), one should have a good understanding of Anusara philosophy and the Universal Principles of Alignment™, which can be gained through an Anusara Immersion.

One of the best things that we can do for ourselves is to develop a regular yoga practice

In the 100 hours of class time in the Teacher Training, we will:

  • Do the practice!  Each day begins with a 2 h Master Class that highlights all the essential elements of an Anusara yoga practice
  • Review 3 main elements of the Anusara Yoga Method – universal principles of alignment, non-dual life-affirming tantric philosophy, emphasis on Community of Practice
  • Learn the main elements of teaching an Anusara Yoga class:

    • teaching with the UPAs
    • Sequencing

    • Language and Demonstrations
  • Practice teaching!  The main emphasis in the teacher training is on the practice of teaching — asana, pranayama and meditation:  in pairs, small groups, and eventually the whole class
  • Philosophy, Lifestyle and Ethics for Yoga Teachers:  The path of integrity of teaching yoga
