Please be aware that this is not a Teacher Training program in the Ashtanga Yoga lineage of K. Pattabhi Jois, and that the only way to get Authorized or Certified to teach this method is to study consistently with our teachers at the K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Mysore, India.

Starting off with Tim’s unique approach to functional anatomy set you up in a firm understanding of movement mechanics that create health, healing, ease and flow in every posture. You will learn how to approach each posture of the Primary Series from its most efficient pattern and how to communicate that information through hands-on adjustments and verbal cues. Key yogic texts including the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, Hatha Yoga Pradipika and the Bhagavad Gita will be explored.
Whether you are an aspiring yoga teacher, already a yoga teacher or simply a dedicated, curious practitioner, this course will give you a direct experience of the Ashtanga Yoga way to Patanjali Yoga. It is open to every student of Yoga with a consistent personal practice who is ready to take a deeper dive into the Ashtanga Yoga Method.
