What exactly is an Immersion?
The Immersion is a 100 hour course of deep yoga study divided into three parts which will be held starting this fall and culminating in May 2020. The Immersion is for yoga students of all levels who wish to take their practice and understanding of yoga to the next level. This in-depth program explores the principles and philosophy of yoga in an organized and cohesive way, surrounded and supported by a like-minded community, which fosters an environment of deep trust and camaraderie. It is a pre-requisite for the Anusara 200 teacher training program. It can be taken in its entirety or part by part. The parts are sequential and must be taken in order.
The structure of the Immersion provides a solid foundation for diving deeper into your practice and understanding of yoga, and creates an opening that can profoundly transform both your practice and your life. In the Immersion we will explore:
- The Anusara Yoga Universal Principles of Alignment
- Yoga Philosophy and Tantra
- Level I Syllabus of Yoga Poses
- Breathing Techniques a.k.a. Pranayama
Who can benefit from taking an Immersion?
The Immersion is for yoga students of all levels who wish to take their practice and understanding of yoga to the next level. Maybe you don’t want to take a yoga teacher training program, but you do want to learn more than you are getting in classes. Or, if want to take a teacher training in future, this is an excellent preparation. It is also appropriate for teachers of other yoga styles who want to deepen their understanding of the alignment-based yoga system of Anusara yoga. It is a pre-requisite for the Anusara 200 teacher training program. It can be taken in its entirety or part by part. The parts are sequential and must be taken in order.
How many classes will I attend?
The fall Immersion One consists of 6 Sunday afternoons. For those who work or have other responsibilities during the week, this is the ideal opportunity. For those with families, it leaves your Saturday and Sunday mornings completely free.
Each class will include a balanced mix of asana and discussion. Together we will delve deeper into the alignment principles behind the practice of level I yoga poses. We will also meditate, do pranayama, and journal our way to optimal alignment. So don’t worry, you won’t be doing six hours of yoga! In addition, every class will include a break for snack and regrouping. Overall, you can expect to be pleasantly engaged physically, mentally and emotionally.
Want to take it again?
If you have already taken Immersion Part One with us or if you’e completed our 200 YTT and want a review, you can take or retake the Immersion for the reduced fee of $500 or $1400 for all three parts.

After attending classes at Shree for almost 2 years, I did want to deepen my practice. I was mostly focused on learning more about alignment in asana poses when I signed on for the immersion. Indeed, in the immersion, we did a great deal of work exploring all the nuances of poses – the logic of the body, and the loops and spirals of alignment that advance balance and beauty in a pose. This has been enormously helpful in bringing confidence and more enjoyment to my newly inspired personal practice.Kate Gregg
The Immersion was a wonderful experience. The word that comes to mind is depth. We delved much more deeply into the principles and practice of yoga than is possible in regular classes. Each class, we focused on a different aspect of yoga and each class built on the ones that came before it. By the end, we had a much deeper understanding. Also, I enjoyed sharing the entire experience with the others in the class.Ronnie Kauder
