Protocol for Certified Advanced Teacher Trainer (CATT)

The title of CATT is a professional title that certifies you to teach all or part of a 300-Hour Anusara Teacher Training. This is a great “next step” in the path of teaching excellence and we encourage you to consider applying.

Anusara CATTs will have access to:

  • The newly created  300-Hour Anusara Teacher Training curriculum and Student materials
  • The CATT Teachers’ Lounge, which will include a forum\chat room for conversation, connection and collaboration with other CATTs
  • Support and website presence on the Anusra School of Hatha Yoga website (marketing)
  • Uploading by our School staff of your 300-Hour Anusara Teacher Training events to our School’s website

An Anusara CATT will be able to offer their students:

  • An excellent pathway to greater skill and art in teaching Anusara
  • A deep, broad and well-designed curriculum
  • A pathway to Yoga Alliance 500 registration
  • Preparation for Anusara certification.

To be an Anusara CATT truly designates you as a Master Teacher.

What are the prerequisites? Who can apply to be licensed as an Anusara CATT?

  • Certified Anusara teachers who have taught at least five 100-Hour Immersions and five 100-Hour Teacher Trainings
    • Even if you don’t have the full 5 Immersions and Teacher Trainings under your belt, we will be happy to consider your application. Some exceptions to this prerequisite may be made on a case by case basis. This could be true, for example, if there is only one certified teacher in an area and there are not enough students for continuous Immersions and Teacher Trainings.
  • In addition to these prerequisites we will ask you to write us a short essay – telling us why you would like to apply and a bit about your teaching background and so on.
  • There’s no application fee however if your application is approved, there will be an annual CATT license fee renewal – in addition to your Certification license renewal fee.
