Anusara Yoga® Immersions

The Anusara yoga Immersion is open to ALL students and teachers of yoga and is a complete overview of the philosophy, history and practices of Anusara yoga.  It is a 100 hour program which is split into 3 one week sections.  These sections may be taken one at a time or consecutively.

The Immersion is a required course for all students who wish to go on to teacher training.

These courses not only offer an opportunity to deepen your physical practice, but also how to use the physical practice to heal and transform your life.

This course fulfills 100 hours for Yoga Alliance.

Our next Immersion will be in January 2016- dates coming soon!

Anusara Yoga Teacher Training

July 27- August 14 ~ Monday- Friday (hours to be announced)

After completing the full Immersion students are eligible to sign up for the Teacher Training.  In this course we will uncover the method of teaching Anusara including but not limited to taking the seat of the teacher, creating class themes, creating a sequence, pacing and public speaking, anatomy and therapeutics and applying verbal and physical adjustments.  This course will include many hours of actual practice and observation and prepare the student to fully take the seat of the teacher upon completion of the course.

Located at the Lakshmi Institute, nestled in the lush hills of the finger lakes region in the village of Trumansburg, NY.   We are just up the road from the village center which has a coffee shop, several restaurants, gift shops, and a used book store.  We are 10 miles North of Ithaca.
