Ashtanga Yoga - Primary Series Teacher Training

October 14. - 20. 2024 (mo - sun)


David Swenson began practicing yoga in 1969 at the age of 13. His older brother Doug was his first teacher. They practiced hatha yoga from whatever books they could find. David's 


introduction to Ashtanga came in 1973 when he met David Williams and Nancy Gilgoff in Encinitas, California. 

In 1975 David Williams and Nancy Gilgoff brought K. Pattabhi Jois to the U.S. for the first time and Swenson was fortunate enough to be there. Swenson made his first trip to Mysore in 1977. He is one of a very small number of people that have learned the full Ashtanga system as it was originally taught by K. Pattabhi Jois. David Swenson is recognized today as one of the world’s foremost practitioners and instructors of Ashtanga Yoga. David has produced 5 DVD’s and is the author of the highly popular and bestselling yoga book: Ashtanga Yoga “The Practice Manual” that has been printed in 10 different languages and sold internationally.

This training will cover the teaching techniques of the Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga. The participants will learn safe and effective hands-on adjustments through partner work and yoga theory. This is a deep immersion into the details underlying the practice and teaching of Ashtanga Yoga. 

Everyone attending this training must have a daily practice of full primary series for several years and remember the sequence by heart. This training is not meant for beginners as it is not a source of learning the sequence.
