What makes the Ashaya Yoga Transformational 

Teacher Training So Outstanding?

1. This program offers an unprecedented opportunity for transformation of your whole being.

2. We offer you individual alignment instruction so you know you're doing the poses correctly. 

3. You'll receive unparalleled progressive one-on-one mentoring throughout the course. You'll teach 6 mini-classes over the course of the training, and you'll get individual feedback after each one, so you know how well you're doing and what skills you need to work on.​

4. Through small group and 1-to-1 interaction with other students, you'll experience the power of a supportive and diverse community of passionate learners.

5. Most teacher trainings only focus on the body. Ashaya fully integrates body, mind, and heart for a complete experience.

6. We explore emotional mastery, as well as mastery of the physical body.

7. We go deep into exploration of Ashaya Yoga and its Tantric yoga philosophy, rather than just learning a little bit about many different styles. This allows you to fully master your teaching skills so you can help your students transform!
