Preparing for your Training
Required Reading & Materials
The following books are required for the Art Of Yoga 200 Hour Teacher Training. When available, you may wish to purchase pre-owned copies of these books.

Daily Yoga Practice and Meditation
In terms of physical preparation, we suggest that you commit to a minimum of one hour of yoga asana practice per day, including a sun salutation series. Optimally, 3 or 4 of those days would be in a studio class taught by a registered yoga instructor. The remaining 3- 4 days could be your personal home practice. Remember to practice with ahimsa (non-violence) by honoring your own body and limitations. If you have a personal meditation practice, please continue it. If you do not have a personal meditation practice, Art Of Yoga offers several opportunities to learn and practice meditation; some of them are free. Please see our schedule for meditation opportunities. The cost of your training will include unlimited yoga during the duration of the training and we highly recommend that you attend at least 3 different types of classes per week to enhance your learning and your practice.
