Akasha Yoga 200 Hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training
2nd Edition Teaching Manual
Our mission is to provide a rigorous training of movement with the key elements for excellency required in teaching a safe and skilled yoga class.
What does it mean to be 200 hour certified?
The literal meaning is that you have trained for 200 hours with experienced trainers who have taught yoga for 10+ years and have logged over over 8,000 hours in teaching classes.
Introductions of Yoga:
We want our students to have a better full circle understanding of what yoga is and signifies through many different philosophies. This course will be going over these aspects of history and current ever changing knowledge of how the practice is taught effectively in this ever changing world.
Here is some information about our lineage:
Yoga-Yoga - Hatha Yoga Teacher Training - Austin, Texas
Established in 1996
Guru Karam Benton & Mehtab Benton
"Teaching yoga is more than a profession. It is a passion, a calling, an awakening to your own deep potentials and possibilities. As you learn to teach yoga, you will learn more about yourself, much more than you thought possible. You will discover the truly great and lifelong gift that yoga has to offer everyone and you will learn to share that gift with others."
Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training - Gururattan Kaur Khalsa Ph.D
"Shakti the Serpent bids you "Sat Nam!" and welcome to Kundalini Yoga, an ancient technology sometimes referred to as the mother of all yogas, and arguably the most powerful and fast-acting yoga there is. As brought to the West in 1969 by Yogi Bhajan, it produces results up to 16 times faster than basic Hatha yoga!"
The Human Journey and the Soul:
"Our physical body is a gift to our soul. Our soul is given the opportunity to experience the ecstasy of love in a physical body on planet earth. Our body is exquisitely designed to be an instrument to tune us into higher frequencies of love which aligns us with the essence of our soul. These higher frequencies take us closer to God and to oneness with all beings. When properly attuned, our body is our vehicle to consciously experience and communicate with universal energies and our soul."

Desi Springer & Micah Springer
"The history of the Bowspring system began in 2012 as a rebellious choice by Desi Springer to lift her tailbone in every dynamic posture throughout her day! In her first 14 years of yoga classes, Desi was instructed to tuck, scoop, and draw her hips and tailbone downward to improve her posture by every teacher she encountered. Her unusually deep lower back curve was widely considered excessive and a misalignment that would lead to painful spinal compression and degeneration. Although Desi tried her best to follow the alignment instructions to not excessively curve her lower back, she had a deep curve in her lower back all her life. Despite her best efforts, Desi could never flatten her lower back like her yoga teachers wanted her to do. Furthermore, the downward direction of the tail always felt contrary to her natural flow. Finally, in the Summer of 2012, Desi boldly announced to the teachers of Vital Yoga in Denver, she was going to follow her heart and not tuck her tailbone any more!"
Philosophy of Teaching & Alignment
BKS Iyengar Yoga
“Iyengar Yoga, named after and developed by B. K. S. Iyengar, and described in his bestselling 1966 book Light on Yoga, is a form of yoga as exercise that has an emphasis on detail, precision and alignment in the performance of yoga postures which directly lead to other forms such as Anusara Yoga”

Anatomy System & Donna Farhi
The thoracic spine has a primary kyphotic curve and the lumbar spine has a secondary lordovic curve.
Movement at the junction of these two opposing curves is called the thoracolumbar rhythm.
Backbends can bring a substantial extension in the vertebra of this junction point, especially T10 through L1, where the floating rubs are not as supportive.
We must use the surrounding musculature to support this area of potential hyperextension. In back bends, we enlist the abdominal muscles to provide control and support of this vulnerable junction.
