The manual includes detailed information on some of the most fundamental parts of the practice: breath, dristi and bandhas and much more. Also sharing the Full Primary Series with modifications and illustrations, it serves as a classic tool to take your practice anywhere.

With six lessons that coincide with the Ashtanga Manual, these exercises assist practitioners in deepening their understanding in a practical way by allowing students to explore the lessons in their own time and space.

Lastly, a DVD of the Primary Series taught by Larry Schultz allows students to bring it all together.

Some questions and answers

Q:How many people are going to be trainee?

A: In order to ensure the quality of the program and personalized guidance for each student, the yoga teacher training is limited to 20 students.

Q:What makes our yoga teacher training unique? Why should I choose yours over others?

A:Our yoga teacher training is very unique and the leading school of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga today. 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.

There is no limit for how long you need to have practiced yoga prior to the course. Most important is that you are devoted to the course and do your best and to believe in yourself. The teachers will support you along the way and adjust it to your experience. More than 5000 teachers since 1989 have attended the course so far with an ever growing interest. Due to the popularity of the courses, make sure to sign up in advance and plan ahead. It's Yoga is a established and well-known name all over the world and yoga communities.

Q: Will you offer support after the yoga teacher training? If so, how?

A: We will offer you all the support you need after finishing the yoga teacher training course. Our teachers are more than happy to share their knowledge whether it comes to opening your own yoga studio or need ideas and tips of where to work. You will learn everything you need to know to be better prepared for the reality of teaching and sharing what you've learned.

It's Yoga is a big global community today and there are many studios all over the world. It's Yoga studios is a place where people can practice yoga and always know the high standards that they can expect when entering a studio. If you're interested in opening your own studio, we will do everything we can to assist you and give you our expertise, tips and mentorship.

Q: Is your program more focused on students looking to deepen their own personal practice as an immersion? Or does your program focus on helping students launch a career as a yoga teacher?

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.

    "I've never done so much yoga in my life, and I'm so glad this yoga training gave me the opportunity to do so. I've learned so much about my physical practice. I enjoyed the techniques to improve upon areas to built strength, and asanas I never expected to. Though, I came to the training with zero expectations, I grew and transformed in such a productive and positive way while I was here, and I hope to carry that home to my daily life and into my yoga teaching."

    "All Yoga Thailand has been a transformational journey for me. I am leaving a different person, I’ve learnt so much about yoga philosophy, anatomy, adjustments as well as deepening my personal practice both mentally and physically. Vari, Marcela and Pierina have all been incredibly encouraging, inspiring teachers whilst getting me to reach my full potential. It’s been an incredible experience and I’ve loved every minute, every teacher, every student that has been a part of it. I can’t wait to take the next steps of this journey!

    "The All Yoga teacher training was one the best experiences in my life. The teachers are not only knowledgeable, but also easy to approach and are always offering to help you with your personal development. Not only did we learn about how to teach yoga classes, but we also dipped into yoga philosophy, anatomy and business in a fun and accessible way. The community we built here with the other students felt very close and safe and will keep in touch for life. Absolutely worth it!"

    "Great experience and what an amazing place to hold the course. My transformation was learning about myself, discipline and appreciating my life back home more. Most challenging for me was the weather and keeping up and not giving up until the end of the course. The teachers were great and always focused on everyone being equal- all sharing and learning from one another. Annie and David are amazing!"

  • Review by Melanie from United Kingdom

    "The training is extremely well balanced with physical, spiritual and philosophical forms of yoga teacher training. There is a big focus on self-practice that helps you learn..about your body and the teacher within you. This TT has given me a more open-minded and humble approach to teaching others. My most challenging experience was to let go of my ego and competitive nature and truly focus on myself."

  • Review by a traveler

    "It was a life changing experience. The training was personally one of the best things that happened to me. The teachers are truly inspirational and they helped me so much during this course. I will keep their voices with me and take it everywhere I go. Not just about lessons and yoga, but also how you should present yourself as a teacher. They will always be my gurus. My transformation was to really understand what yoga is all about. I feel excited but very humble and grateful to be able to complete this course. Namaste."

    "Wow. What an amazing life altering experience! I came to be a better teacher for my students but did not expect to become a better person. I feel more grounded, calmer, move in touch with myself than I ever have.Even though I found the meditation very challenging, the practices allowed me to focus my mind and strip away all the junk. Just me, my breath, and mat. Lovely. That connection will allow me eventually to find my connection with meditation. I am not there yet, but see it on the horizon! Thank you, my teachers, for sharing your knowledge and wisdom. It will have long-lasting effects in my life."

  • Review by Derik Ramirez from Mexico

    "The quality of the teachings and knowledge of the teachers were what impressed me the most. From day one, I witnessed many physical transformations but the most importantly are the ones you witness on the inside. These transformations are hard to come by. The most challenging aspect of the training was not the self practice, the asana studyThe most challenging aspect is to say goodbye to such a wonderful group of people."

  • Review by Tamsine Ripper from Australia

    "This is the training that I wanted as I felt I needed a challenge. This course is challenging! The location, accommodation, and the yoga shala are all amazing and give you the jungle experience. I transformed physically and mentally with such a strong daily routine that demands your attention. Seeing the yoga teacher appears in me and my classmates are so rewarding after all the effort. The theory part challenged me the most! But as the saying go, 99 percents practice and one percent theory."

    "My time spent with All Yoga Thailand for their Yoga Teacher Training was nothing short of exceptional. There is no comparison for the elated, clear sense of mind that I am leaving with versus the state in which I arrived. Physically and mentally I was challenged beyond where I could have imagined. As a result this is the strongest Ive been in a long time. Learning from David, Marcela and Vari has been inspirational. As the course has come to an end, I am excited and motivated to keep moving forward knowing that with my practice all is coming."

Yet her Vinyasa classes were one of the most challenging I had done ! With so much fire and energy. She is a true example of yin and yang, of balance which I really respect in a teacher. Cant wait to be a student again in her presence ! Thank you Annie for a wonderful experience. "

    " Annie was for me the perfect guide during the yoga retreat. Her amazing balance in Yin and Yang, in her teachings on and off the mat combined with her warm and down to earth personality showed me what it really is about as a yoga teacher, being vulnerable in sharing your experience, your passion, teaching from the heart but with a strong and steady theoretical foundation.

  • Review by Elena from Russia

    "I know it says training but I didnt feel like it was but more like a new discovery every day. I never felt stressed or under pressure despite the amount of information was given to us. Every class we had-practicing, yoga philosophy, anatomy, yoga sutras- was so interesting, captivated and so well-organized that I just wanted to learn more. My favorite part of this course was my teachers! I feel so lucky to have chosen this TT. Each one of the teachers were already a great teacher, person & yogi but together they built an amazing team! Absolutely! Thank you for the hard work. Our yoga philosophy Ram brought the experience to a even higher more spiritual level. Thank you for keeping quizzes and homework light and manageable. It was a perfect balance between studying and having some time to absorb all the material. I love how All Yoga included different styles of yoga in addition to Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. Finally I absolutely loved the workshops! Inversions, pre/post natal, backbends..etc It was my favorite thing. It was so much fun and informative! Most importantly for me, I left this training feeling ready to teach on my own and able to have my own self-practice. All Yoga teaching team, you made it possible! I feel very confident and happy! Thank you!"
