This 85-hour advanced yoga education course incorporates the essential components of asana, pranayama, meditation, anatomy and physiology.

The course is designed to help you:

  • Advance your study of asana (including proper alignment, benefits, and contraindications of the physical postures)
  • Learn pranayama (breathing techniques)
  • Learn dhyana (meditation)
  • Learn subtle aspects of yoga practice such as mantra (chants), mudra (hand gestures), and bandha (energy locks)
  • Understand the principles of anatomy and body mechanics/functional movement
  • Gain a broader understanding of yoga history and philosophy
  • Learn and define the Sanskrit names of postures

Yoga Etiquette

Yoga is about becoming more conscious and aware in all aspects of life. This means being considerate and mindful of how your actions affect others. To that end, you are expected to:

  • Be on time.
  • Be prepared. Come with your yoga mat and any other materials you are asked to bring.
  • Pay attention. Take notes if that’s valuable to you.
  • Avoid interrupting. Raise your hand to ask questions.
  • Be attentive and respectful to your teacher. Avoid texting, emailing, and internet use during sessions.
  • Be respectful of others’ space and belongings. Avoid walking on classmates’ mats unless you are partnered for something and you have permission from the owner of that mat.
  • Practice good hygiene and body care, so as not to subject others to body odor.
  • Avoid strong perfumes and colognes; many people are sensitive to these chemicals and may result in headaches, nausea, etc.

Feedback Opportunities

  • Participants are welcome to offer feedback, comments, questions privately in person or through email.
  • A box where anonymous feedback can be left will also be available.
