‘Your work is your love made visible.’

– Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet

Earth and Sky Yoga Studio offers a comprehensive 200–hour teacher training program. Our teacher training draws on the Anusara yoga method. Anusara is an elegant yet simple approach to Hatha Yoga with a strong focus on alignment. Through our teacher training you will learn clear, safe and applicable principles of alignment. Our course will support your ability to teach to a wide variety of bodies, adapting your classes to accommodate students of differing abilities and capabilities in a safe way.

This is a part-time course and we encourage students from all yogic backgrounds to apply.

Phase One – Immersion Workshops (100 hours)

This series of eight weekend workshops in Sydney will deepen student understanding of the philosophy, anatomy and practice of yoga, providing strong foundations and working knowledge of the basic principles and practice of Anusara yoga.

Importantly, the Immersion Workshops also stimulate the development of a kula (community of the heart), among whom students delve deeply into key Anusara yoga teachings. Working together, focussed on heart expansion and inspired biomechanics, students grow towards the realisation of the potential inherent in their individual lives and practice.

These eight Immersion Workshop weekends are typically held across:

Saturday afternoon 12:00pm–6pm;

and Sunday 8:00am–4:00pm.

Immersion dates for 2022 are to be confirmed.

Testimonial from an Immersion and Teacher Training Graduate 2019:

I loved every part of the 200hr Teacher Training with Cassandra. She covered every aspect one could think of to lay the foundation and prepare us to start our journey as yoga teachers. The training included the history of Yoga, philosophy, meditation, anatomy as well as asana practice and the importance of alignment. I am so fortunate to have had Cassandra as my teacher - she is truly a gift. I would have never been able to complete this at any other studio. Thank you so much Cassandra.
