Yoga is an ancient philosophy of right living that comes from South Asia. The associated technology of Ashtanga Yoga gives us practical ways to embody this philosophy as we develop a healthy body and mind utilizing posture, breath, and meditation techniques. A healthy body and mind is the foundation for making choices that support right living. The Ashtanga Yoga Worldwide teacher training courses will support your journey into right living, and will give you the skills to share this technology with others.

200 Hour Experience Practitioner Course
The 200 hr Experienced practitioners course is for those who want to deepen their understanding and practice of the ashtanga yoga method, and may or may not have the intention to teach after the course. The 200 hr course gives us all of the fundamental skills to grow into a teacher should we choose to pursue that path, but any practitioner that wants to deepen their own understanding of the practice will benefit from this course.
The Ashtanga Yoga Worldwide 300 hr Teacher Training is an advanced training that builds on the foundational skills learned in the 200 hr experienced practitioners course. This course focuses much more specifically on teaching skills and goes more in depth into the history and philosophy of yoga, as well as the anatomy and physiology of the techniques of yoga than the foundational course. Anyone who has completed the 200 hr foundations course, or who has prior experience with teaching will benefit from this course. Teachers with a Yoga Alliance RYT will be eligible to up-level their teaching credential to a RYT 500 at the end of this course.
The Ashtanga Yoga Worldwide 500 hr Teacher Training combines the 200hr Experience practitioner course and the 300hr Teacher Training. This course is perfect for those who want to become a teacher, but do not currently hold any teaching credential. Currently, Ashtanga Yoga Worldwide only offers teaching certificates at the 500hr level.
