Ashtanga Yoga Apprenticeship


Join Level 2 Authorized teacher and Founder of The Yoga Shala, Krista Shirley, for an intensive immersion in Ashtanga Yoga.  The Yoga Shala’s 200 hour Comprehensive Ashtanga Yoga Apprenticeship Program will cover the practical, theoretical, historical, and spiritual aspects of the science of yoga. This program requires considerable energy, time, dedication, and commitment – but you will leave with a thorough education, dedicated personal practice, heightened awareness, and an abundance of inspiration and passion! Class size is limited in order to create an intimate learning environment.  Students will meet with Krista nine weekends over the course of six months. Students will also observe, and later, assist in adjustments and teaching at The Yoga Shala. It is not necessary that you are already a teacher or even want to become a teacher to join us in this immersion; but it is important that applicants have an established practice and have a desire to deepen their knowledge of Ashtanga Yoga. 

The intention of this program is to educate students.  Those who complete the Apprenticeship in its entirety will receive a certificate of completion issued by The Yoga Shala.  Please note that this is not a teacher certification course.  Only R. Sharath Jois of the Krishna Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Mysore, India can grant students Authorization or Certification to teach Ashtanga Yoga.
