ANUSARA® IMMERSION 1 (34 hours)


A Standalone Workshop and Continuing Education Training with Bo Srey, assisted by Shirley Srey 


August 28 & 29, September 4 & 5, 2021

Hom Yoga, Singapore

8am - 6pm  


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. We plumb the depths of the Anusara practice and study some of the most sublime philosophical teachings in the yoga tradition: Kashmir Shaivism.

The immersion’s content and curriculum has been designed by a worldwide community of master teachers and scholars. 


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 biomechanically sound, having been taught and refined by yoga teachers who are also professional bodyworkers, anatomists, kinesiologists, physiotherapists and medical doctors.


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.


In Immersion 1 the focus is on learning the main principles of alignment and how they are directly informed by nondual Tantric philosophy. Tantra in Sanskrit simply means a tool to expand Awareness. We bring the teachings to life by embodying them in dynamic asana sessions and workshop style breakout sessions. To deepen our understanding and connect with the space of wisdom, we explore pranayama, contemplation and meditation. We also study basic Anatomy and Tantric philosophy to broaden the context of and add perspective to the practice. 


Topics include:


• Daily asana practice

• Anusara Universal Principles of Alignment

• Deep study of Anusara syllabus 1 and some of 2

• Nondual tantric philosophy, mostly drawn from Kashmir Shaivism

• Overview of the basic schools of yoga philosophy

• Overview of the history of yoga

• Pranayama

• Meditation

• Bandhas, selected kriyas and mudras

• Journaling and contemplation

• Yoga anatomy

• Anatomy of breathing

• Subtle body energetics and anatomy

• Restorative yoga

• Adhikara, studentship

• Bhakti yoga


We welcome dedicated students of yoga, teachers of other yoga methods and aspiring teachers to the Immersion. Immersion 1 can be applied toward Continuing Education for Teachers under Yoga Alliance.


After completing the Immersion 1, students can choose to complete the remaining immersions to further their Anusara studies. Afterwards, they can join the Anusara yoga Teacher Training with Bo Srey or any other Anusara yoga Teacher Training offered worldwide.


Please note, you will need to purchase the Immersion Manual ($20 USD) and Teacher Training Manual ($30 USD) separately. We will provide purchase options upon registration.

ABOUT ANUSARA 


Anusara is a modern school of hatha yoga, steeped in traditional teachings and modern understanding of anatomy and biomechanics. Founded in 1997 by John Friend, Anusara became the Anusara School of Hatha Yoga (ASHY) in 2012 and is now run by an international community of Anusara yoga teachers. With over 800 teachers worldwide, ASHY became a non-profit organization in the United States in 2017. In addition to highly trained hatha yoga teachers, renowned scholars, philosophers and former monks share their wisdom in Anusara trainings and gatherings.


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.

September 11 & 12, 18 & 19, 2021

Hom Yoga, Singapore

8am - 6.30pm


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.


Topics include:


• Nondual tantric philosophy

• Intensive immersion into the Anusara Universal Principles of Alignment

• Teaching with a theme

• Teaching with the UPAs or Universal Principles of Alignment

• Principles of sequencing

• Principles of observation and adjustment

• Other components of the methodology such as language & demonstrations


Please note, you will need to purchase the Immersion Manual ($20 USD) and Teacher Training Manual ($30 USD) separately. We will provide purchase options upon registration.

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 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 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.
