The Advanced Training builds on the foundations of the Inspired Training. As a yoga teacher, you can enter the program at any time. The Expert Convention allows our most experienced AYI® teachers to stay up to date on all of the newest techniques.

AYI® Inspired - Establish a solid foundation

In the Inspired teacher training you develop teaching skills as you immerse yourself in ancient philosophy, both of which are presented to you in a practical, personal and structured way. 

 AYI® Inspired Bridge Program - for yoga teachers 

The bridge program covers the foundations of the AYI® Method and is intended for yoga teachers from other yoga traditions. This training is designed to help you to apply elements of the Ashtanga yoga practice in a way that promotes physical wellbeing. 

AYI® Advanced - Taking it to the next level

In the Advanced teacher training you have the opportunity to expand your teaching skills further and become familiar with even more new teaching techniques. At the same time, you take a more comprehensive look at sacred yoga texts where you gain even deeper insight. During this period you will be able to further develop and grow in your own personal practice. 

AYI® Expert - Exclusive for experienced teachers of the AYI® method

Starting in 2019 the Expert training will take on a new format and will be covered over a year's time. Previously the Expert training was a convention that lasted one week.
