Each Intensive covers these topics in level-appropriate depth: Philosophy, Physical and Subtle Anatomy, Self-Practice, Asana, Teaching Methods, Pranayama, Meditation, Ayurveda and Miscellaneous topics required for entering the field at a professional level.

Each training level consists of contact hours and non-contact hours. Additional contact hours are earned through the Observation and Assisting opportunities, being Mentored and by attending ongoing classes and continuing education workshops throughout the year(s).

However, it is likely that most trainees will exceed this number.

We look forward to training you in the Krishnamacharya tradition so that you may share authentic Yoga practices with your future students. Sri T. Krishnamacharya is regarded as the grandfather of modern Yoga. Through his teachings, Krishnamacharya emphasized that techniques should evolve to meet the needs of the individual at the given moment, rather than insisting on one particular technique. He lived for over 100 years and taught until the last few days of his life. Today, his teachings have become popular through many of his students, especially TKV Desikachar, BKS Iyengar, Pattabhi Jois and Indra Devi.
