200-HOUR ANUSARA® YOGA TEACHER TRAINING, YOGA ALLIANCE REGISTERED TEACHER TRAINING
Led by Bo Srey, assisted by Shirley Srey
June 24 – August 27, 2023, Saturdays & Sundays
Thank you for your interest in studying Anusara yoga more deeply.
We have arranged the Anusara Immersion and Teacher Training cycle into 4 separate modules. Taken together, they comprise the full 200-Hour Yoga Alliance recognised teacher training.
The Anusara certification is recognised as one of the most comprehensive and rigorous yoga certifications. The curriculum was created by a community of master teachers, renowned scholars, anatomists and bodyworkers.
From the Anusara website:
Anusara yoga classes are based on a nondual Tantric philosophy that an intrinsic energy of Oneness underlies everything and everyone. This energy is a ‘goodness’ without opposite, it is auspicious. Anusara yoga teachers are trained to look for this goodness first – in the poses, in our practices, ourselves and in all of life’s experience. This perspective is a shift from looking to ‘fix or correct’ the student, to a vision of service by enhancing and revealing more beauty and innate goodness that is the supreme nature already present in the student. Anusara yoga teachers are committed to creating an uplifting and empowering experience for every student in class. They inspire lightheartedness and playfulness with a joyful creativity that is the nature of the Anusara yoga practice.
THE ANUSARA IMMERSION
The Anusara Immersion is an introductory course in the fundamental principles of Anusara yoga’s broad, nondual Tantric philosophy and Universal Principles of Alignment. It is a fantastic way to deepen your understanding of not just Anusara, but yoga itself. While the scope of the Immersion is broad enough to fulfil Yoga Alliance requirements, we plumb the depths of the Anusara practice and study some of the most sublime philosophical teachings in the yoga tradition, namely nondual Shaiva Tantra.
The Immersion’s content and curriculum has been designed by a worldwide community of master teachers and scholars. In addition, only Anusara certified teachers can teach teacher trainings and Immersions.
In the practice of Anusara yoga, there are five main principles of alignment that can be applied in every pose. While they are principles and not rules, the Universal Principles of Alignment are a biomechanically sound template that can be applied to any pose to practice deeply and safely.
The method of Anusara yoga is elegant in its simple organization, yet the philosophy and practice are highly sophisticated. A basic Anusara yoga principle has tremendous depth and the Immersion is the first step for the dedicated yoga student on the journey to experience the full extent of its power, efficacy and connection to spirit.
The Immersion curriculum includes:
Daily asana practice covering Anusara syllabi 1 and 2, and exploration of syllabus 3
Anusara Universal Principles of Alignment
Nondual tantric philosophy, mostly drawn from Kashmir Shaivism
Classical yoga (Patanjali)
Overview of the basic schools of yoga philosophy
Overview of the history of yoga
Introductory Ayurveda, 5 elements, doshas
Bandhas, selected kriyas and mudras
Journaling and contemplation
Anatomy for hatha yoga and the Anusara principles
Anatomy of breathing
Subtle body energetics and anatomy
Adhikara, studentship and creating a self practice
THE ANUSARA TEACHER TRAINING
The Anusara Teacher Training, above all, empowers aspiring teachers to step into the current of wisdom within each of us. As students continue to deepen their understanding of Anusara yoga and learn to skilfully teach the method, they gain confidence to take the seat of the teacher while recognizing what a great honor and responsibility this seat confers.
In the Anusara Teacher Training, students learn teaching techniques such as sequencing, adjusting and use of voice. In addition, they receive teaching tools specific to Anusara, including how to teach the Universal Principles of Alignment and how to create inspiring class themes grounded in nondual tantric and classical yoga philosophy. Students will also learn practical skills such as classroom organization and business of yoga.
Upon successful completion of the Anusara Immersion and Teacher Training, students can then register for the Yoga Alliance RYT-200 designation, as well as apply for the Anusara Elements Yoga Teacher designation, the first step towards full Anusara certification.
We welcome dedicated yoga students who wish to deepen their understanding, teachers of other yoga methods and aspiring teachers to the 200-Hour Teacher Training.

ANUSARA® BRIDGE PROGRAM (36 hours)
Bridging the Gap to the Anusara Professional Development Path with Bo Srey, assisted by Shirley Srey
We are happy to offer the Anusara Bridge Program, a continuing education opportunity for teachers who have completed a 200-Hour Teacher Training in any style of yoga.
The Bridge Program is for:
• Yoga teachers who have previously completed a non-Anusara 200-hour yoga teacher training, or
• 200-hour Anusara yoga teacher training graduates wishing to refresh their understanding of the Anusara method.
The 36-hour Anusara Bridge Program gives 200-hour level teachers the opportunity to enter the 300-hour Anusara Advanced Teacher Training (ATT) without first having to complete a 200-hour specific Anusara yoga Teacher Training. Essentially, the bridge program facilitates entry to the 300-hour Anusara yoga teacher training for teachers with other yoga trainings. The 300-hour ATT is a prerequisite to become a licensed Anusara-Inspired yoga teacher.
The Bridge Program provides teachers with an overview of the basic Anusara methodology and philosophy. Whether you are a 200-hour trained yoga teacher taking this program as your gateway into the 300-hour ATT or you are a 200-hour Anusara teacher training graduate looking to refresh your knowledge, this course offers 36-hours of continuing education credits. These credits also count as Elective Hour credits towards completion of 300-hour ATT.
