Learn to Teach the Ashtanga Primary Series
Take Your Yoga Practice to the Next Level

with Jessica Blanchard and Meredith Murphy

Are you a yoga teacher who's wondering where to go next? How to sharpen your teaching skills?

This intensive is for yoga teachers thirsty for more knowledge, more than you've gotten in your 200-hour training.

Ashtanga Yoga is one of the most popular styles of yoga across the world. Developed by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in India, the Ashtanga Yoga system helps students face the many problems of modern day life. 

Learning to teach and practice Ashtanga Yoga will take your yoga practice to the next level. 

Both Jessica and Meredith have studied Ashtanga Yoga in India. Jessica is among a few teachers in the world with Level 2 Authorization. She studied directly with Pattabhi Jois in India for many years, starting in 2004.

Meredith is a direct student of R. Sharath Jois, the grandson of Pattabhi Jois. She's also studied with the top teachers in the world, including Manju Jois, Richard Freeman, and Tim Miller. 

At the end of this intensive, you'll be comfortable guiding students through the Ashtanga Primary Series. You'll have an established practice of the Primary Series, including advanced postures like kurmasana, drop backs, and handstands. 

This is the first module of our 300-hour training, which qualifies teachers for 500-hour Yoga Alliance Registration.
