GDPR Confirmation Form

JSY TT – Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Research Community

The Teacher Training School is now open. Information on available TT courses can be found on the dedicated TT site – AVYRC.COM

John has been working with his Senior and 500 level Teachers on the preparation of a new course that we’re happy to now share with you.  The team has taken the opportunity to take a long look at what kind of training should be offered, where it’s heart and ethos lie and what under pining principles would help develop a world class training program.  It’s been a big undertaking and there’s a lot of things that were considered and the team are now happy to deliver the first parts of this program to you.

At this time John has decided to pass over the development of the Teacher Training Program to his Senior JSY Teachers.  He will remain involved only in an advisory capacity.  For more information on John’s decision please see the announcement page on the Teacher Training website.

Do remember that John rates his Senior and 500 level teachers very highly. Any contact you have with them helps develop a relationship that will stand you well in your journey with us going forward.  You can information on their whereabouts by clicking here
