Questions about the training?  Check our FAQs or Contact Charly Pivert

Who can take the Immersion? The Immersion is open to students of all styles of Hatha Yoga and experience level from beginners to teachers.

How proficient in yoga do I need to be? Students are recommended to have at least 6 months of consistent yoga practice before enrolling in this program. We want to ensure that you have an understanding of the basic foundational poses.

What if I don’t want to be a teacher? That is totally fine! Our immersion and teacher trainings are great for those wanting to dive deep into their own personal practice and the study of yoga.

How much additional homework should I expect during this program? An empowerment review will need to be completed at the end of each part of the Immersion. During class we will go over the empowerment review together. Reading assignment will be given throughout the immersion.

What is the Anusara-style of Yoga? Anusara Yoga is a style of Hatha Yoga. Anusara Yoga unifies a life affirming Tantric philosophy with guiding principles of Alignment in a heart oriented practice.

 Will I be certified to teach yoga after the Immersion? Not yet. The Anusara curriculum and Yoga Alliance requires completion of the 100-hr Immersion and a 100-hr Teacher Training. After that you are eligible to register as a 200-hr certified Yoga teacher ( Anusara Elements Yoga Teacher through ASHY and 200h RYT through Yoga Alliance).

What is ASHY ? The Anusara School of Hatha Yoga (ASHY) was formed in 2012 by an international group of Anusara yoga teachers. With over 800 teachers worldwide, in 2017 ASHY became a non-profit corporation.

 What is the Yoga Alliance? Yoga Alliance is the organization that creates the nationally recognized standards for yoga teacher trainings. While it’s not legally required to be a registered Yoga Alliance teacher, more and more studios are requiring this distinction as a standard. The Anusara Yoga Immersion and Teacher Training are approved programs by Yoga Alliance. Each has received 5 star ratings based on past training students.

Why split up the program? What is the difference in between the Immersion and the teacher training? In the immersion you will learn the methodology of Anusara Yoga and the philosophy that supports it.  During this training we will also explore the different currents of thoughts  and philosophy that shape the vision behind the different style of Yoga. 

The main focus in the teacher training is to learn how to articulate and  teach this knowledge to others. In the Immersion the  main focus is in becoming the embodiment of that knowledge.

Are we doing 16 hours of asana practice per immersion weekend ?
No,  during the immersion weekend asana is only one of the many practice we engage with. Other practices includes pranayama, meditation, study of the anatomy of movement, studies of scriptures and of the therapeutic aspect of the practice. Modalities of learning combines practice, lecture, group discussion, Q & A, contemplation and writing.

Is there any breaks during the day? What about lunch? Each day we take a half hour lunch break and a morning and afternoon snack break.

Are the reading materials purchased separately from the program?
