Approaches to yoga are as diverse as its practitioners, and so are the skills needed to master the art and science of teaching. ©Universal Yoga studies all systems of yoga, empowering teachers with the confidence and skills necessary to meet the needs and abilities of their students.

This programme is designed for all yoga practitioners who seek a deeper understanding of the ancient path of yoga, regardless of their background or practice style. Participants will come away with a profound understanding of their personal practice, as well as the skills required to effectively teach a wide array of students through both hatha and vinyasa sub-styles.

The 200-RYT course is led by teacher Andrey Lappa and Copper Crow, delivering the full range of the yoga tradition and the practical modern methods for sharing this ancient practice with others. This programme compresses a vast array of yoga subjects and styles into a highly intensive course, offering the most diverse training possible in the shortest amount of time. This intensive study includes physical practice, lectures, theory, posture clinics and teaching methodology. • Daily sessions begin with 45 minutes of ©Shiva Nata (Dance of Shiva) practice, a special dynamic moving meditation aimed to develop focus and coordination.

• Asana practices give an experiential understanding of different sub-styles of yoga practice. For example: strengthening, stretching, static, dynamic, hatha, vinyasa (flow), kundalini, pranayama, meditation, and partner yoga, to name a few. These classes are mixed-level, accessible to all healthy yoga practitioners with a prior regular yoga practice (regardless of previous practice style background). Classes will offer new insights to novice practitioners, while presenting challenges to even the most seasoned yogis.

• Lecture/Theory explore the science of yoga through lectures on yoga philosophy, 8 limbs of yoga study, breakdown of sub-styles by intention, creative sequencing for various aspirations, as well as a practical understanding of asana (poses), pranayama (breathing techniques), mudras (consciousness control), bandhas (energy control), kriyas (purification techniques), meditation techniques for mental focus and peace of mind, as well as teaching methods for sharing yoga with others.

This programme meets the Yoga Alliance 200-RYT requirements for professional yoga teaching hours, yet far exceeds the requirements in subject and course content. Ideal for yoga practitioners who wish to deepen their understanding/practice of yoga, serious students who are committed to the study of yoga and wish to become professional yoga teachers, and current teachers who seek to expand their teaching beyond their sub-style (ability to teach multiple sub-styles for deeper understanding and greater marketability, and accumulating additional hours for 500 E-RYT certification).

©Universal Yoga
Founded by Andrey Lappa, ©Universal Yoga is a logical, multi-faceted system that can be used by anyone living in the modern world, regardless of their level of asana practice. This system provides all the techniques for excellent physical health and the attainment of high spiritual aspirations.

"Andrey Lappa's ©Universal Yoga is a complete integrative system that empowers people of all schools and styles of yoga. The principles and practices presented are ideal for developing ultimate creative potential and achieving self-realisation." — Shiva Rea

Andrey’s ©Universal Yoga is to yoga practice what Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do is to martial arts – a style without style, or better said a style of all styles. Unlike more traditional schools of yoga, ©Universal Yoga is not fixed or patterned. The focus is to develop free yogis, by offering a philosophy of guiding thoughts and various techniques to open each practitioner to their own unique style, and giving them the tools to be spontaneous and adapt to any and all situations they might find in life and in their students. ©Universal Yoga empowers yogis to “Be like water” in their practice and their teaching. — Copper Crow
