People have been inquiring about the next yoga teacher training programme. I have put off answering until now, mostly because none of these people expressing interest actually belong to our kula (yoga community), and none of these people followed my suggestion to start attending classes at Antahsara Yoga Shala to decide if I was their teacher. It feels out of integrity to offer a teacher training to students who may well be dedicated, but are not expressing an interest in our shala and community. I believe that it requires a strong sadhana (personal practice) with abhyasa (steady, focused practice over a long period of time) to help mould one into a potential teacher.

When I attended my first teacher training course, I did so not from the desire to serve others, but to deepen my own knowledge and practice of yoga. Serving others came later and continues to do so. At that time, unless one found (called in) their guru or teacher, there were very little options available on the spectrum between taking public classes and attending training to become a teacher. In the West today, there are many, many options to learn more about asana, and even a few more options to learn more about the whole of Yoga. But even today, deepening your practice still seems synonymous with the teacher training track.

Yoga is both art and science. One of my teachers called it simply, “a recipe for happiness”. For various reasons which we will discuss in class, the full teachings of Yoga still require perseverance and a bit of digging. If your idea of Yoga begins and ends with hatha yoga (physical postures and conscious breathing ), I invite you to join us on a deep dive into philosophy and techniques that are time proven to help you discover your true potential.

Please complete all the questions, use as much paper necessary to provide as much information as is possible. Thank you and see you on the mat.
