Ashtanga Studio Berlin

Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training 2015

with Andrea Lutz & Aris Kapetanakis

This course focuses on teaching Ashtanga Yoga in an individual "one-on-one" basis within a group setting (Mysore style). The aim is to deliver a Yoga practice that corresponds individually to each student. It is the best method to ensure that everyone learns Ashtanga Yoga in a safe way, regardless of age and previous knowledge. This way of teaching requires a reliable and sound knowledge of Ashtanga Yoga, human Anatomy and Physiology, verbal and nonverbal guidance and support of students, as well as a profound analysis and understanding of Yoga itself with all its aspects.

This advanced training course is offered to all Yoga teachers and Yoga teacher trainees. Advanced long-time practitioners without teaching ambitions are also welcome to participate in order to get a deeper insight into the practice of Ashtanga Yoga. This course is designed to provide continuous accompaniment and support of your own practice as well as your teaching activity.

About the training:
The training course focuses on: Yoga practice, Yoga technique, teaching methods, adjustment training, Anatomy, Living Anatomy, Physiology, Yoga philosophy, basic principles of a healthy and balanced diet, and the participation in one weekend workshop with Nancy Gilgoff, to connect with the source of Ashtanga Yoga.
