Also sharing the Full Primary Series with modifications and illustrations, it serves as a classic tool to take your practice anywhere.

The late founder, Larry Shultz, put together the teacher training as a course for students to advance in the yoga practice in a short period of time. This is one of the first programs that were developed by Larry Schultz who remains one of the very first persons in the west to have been introduced to Ashtanga Yoga in India bySri Pattabi Jois, the Ashtanga Yoga master.

A: Students have attended the yoga teacher trainings over the last couple of years due to a variety of reasons and personal goals. Our graduates are ready and fully prepared to teach beginners Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga after completing the yoga teacher training course. Throughout the years, we had many traveling to us from all over the globe to practice yoga with us and deepen their practice, learn more about yoga (both the practical and the philosophical part) and practice in a inspiring environment in Asia with very experienced yoga teachers. You don't need to be aiming to become a teacher after this course unless that's your intentions. Everyone is welcome regardless of what your plans are after the course.
Q: What can a student expect from your school should they decide to study with you?
A: So many amazing things are happening to the individual and you learn so much about yourself by attending the yoga teacher training. Yoga is the first step to awakening and when you start practicing intensively and continuously you will notice a lot of new changes in your body and mind. Yoga is about the inner journey and awakening something within you. You will find your own inner teacher and most students find it much easier to practice on their own in a more natural way after the end of the yoga course.
You will learn to become your own teacher, not only on the mat but also in life. When you go through all this amazing changes you will feel stronger and more responsible over your life. We focus on practicing yoga asanas as a way to self-realization and spiritual growth. When you cross barriers and learn things on the mat that you could only dream of before, you start applying this methods and ways in real life. Like Larry Schultz and Pattabi Jois used to say "Practice yoga and all is coming". We have all experience from how truly right he was.
We are blessed and grateful over what yoga brings us and how we feel during and after the practice.
Every day, we see how much the students learn and how they advance and develop their personal yoga practice. Year after year, students get certified from the yoga course and leave us talented and secure in their practice and in the teaching style. We encourage our students to find their own yoga style and personality that will become a part of the way they teach. Most important, you will develop a teaching voice, to be humble, sensitive and a great role models for your students while you are doing what you love.
Q:What is the overall tone of the program? Is it serious and intense? Or is it playful and light?
A: It's Yoga is known for being very open and welcoming for all people. You do not need to be very experienced to practice with us, but we rather welcome students who are willing to learn and take yoga seriously as a way of life. We are very liberal but want the students to think for themselves and find a balance between practice and free time. Students might sometime be on different levels, it's very important to show respect to everyone.
We will do our best to put the level of the training on a suitable level for everyone. It's Yoga is a very fun and interesting program and even though it's very intense sometimes, you feel that you learn a lot in a very short time. You choose yourself how intense or light you want it to be. You are never forced but rather encouraged by the teachers.
Apart from yoga as a practical form, you will also be introduced to chanting, meditation techniques, lifestyle changes, finding your own inner voice and we will go through Patanjalis eight limbs of yoga. We also encourage our students to engage in spiritual discussions. The It's Yoga group is like a family and we all help and support each other. We are sure that you will have a great and hopefully life-changing experience with us.
