Home-Study can start when you sign up & ends November 2019
We have developed a special program for those interested in becoming yoga teachers or deepening their
personal interest and knowledge of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. Gérald Disse and Linda Munro are honored
to have been offering this program since 2008, in support of guiding yoga practitioners to cultivate their
inner growth and self-development through a committed practice and self-reflection and then using this
inner guide to share their knowledge with others. There have been dozens of trainees who have
graduated from this teacher training and are now fulfilling their dream of sharing yoga, either as
independent teachers, within their own schools of yoga or at AYP. All the teachers at AYP in Paris have
completed the program!
We go over every asana in the primary series in strict detail: discovering the basic movements which are
universal alignment techniques one can apply to all the Ashtanga series, exploring different ways to
modify each position with and without props, learning the contraindications for each asana and
alternatives to achieve a similar outcome, how to do hands-on adjustments and especially exploring the
anatomical understanding to keep each yoga student safe in the poses to encourage a life time practice.
In addition, every morning we do a kriya and pranayama practice. These are highly effective and deep
practices that must be taught correctly and safely. They appear subtle however, their subtleness is
deceiving therefore, we teach and practice them with intelligence and awareness.
Lastly, as the ‘real’ yoga is beyond the physicl aspect there is a great emphasis put on yogic philosophy
and daily living to ensure that we all remember to put in that “1% theory” and apply it to all aspects of
our lives; on and off the yoga mat and meditation cushion!
