To study Ashtanga Yoga requires dedication over a long period of time.
Becoming a yoga teacher requires ongoing and in-depth personal study.
The most important step is the first one: to become firmly established in your own practice of Yoga.
"There are no teacher trainings, only student trainings."
- Sri K. Pattabhi Jois
The Foundational Yoga Education and Teacher Training Program at Ashtanga Yoga Victoria is a protracted course of study that honors the ancient teaching system of Yoga, while accommodating the schedule challenges of modern living.
Ashtanga Yoga Victoria's teacher training program focuses on the fact that teaching yoga is an ancient discipline that requires commitment, a willingness to look within yourself, the courage to face your hidden fears and a desire for personal transformation.
Although most of us have entered the field of Yoga through the physical aspect, Yoga itself encompasses so much more then simply bending and twisting your body into different shapes and positions.
It is a philosophy of living that has spanned thousands of years.
To effectively share this ancient discipline, one must have an integrated understanding of its many elements, compassion in helping others, and an extraordinary degree of humility.
