ANUSARA YOGA IMMERSION & TEACHER TRAINING WITH SENIOR CERTIFIED ANUSARA YOGA TEACHER, BO SREY
Led by Bo Srey, assisted by Shirley Srey
Saturday & Sunday, February 27 - May 2, 2021
Hom Yoga, Singapore
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
• Anusara Universal Principles of Alignment
• Deep study of Anusara syllabus 1 and 2, and exploration of syllabus 3
• 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
• Restorative yoga
• Adhikara, studentship and creating a self practice
• Bhakti yoga
We welcome dedicated students of yoga, teachers of other yoga methods and aspiring teachers to the immersion. Individual immersion modules can be applied toward Continuing Education for Teachers under Yoga Alliance.
Each module builds upon the previous one. Modules can be taken separately, but in sequential order.

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.
