Apprenticeship Program This Program offers a unique opportunity to develop your relationship with the teachers at AYC and hone your skills as a yoga teacher. The focus is on the "Mysore Style" class of the Ashtanga Yoga practice, where we will develop your skills and awareness of the whole student in guiding the practice. Apprentices will learn tools to maintain their own practice, study special topics, learn modification approaches and eventually integrate into the Mysore Class as an Assistant.

Dedicated students of Ashtanga Yoga are welcome to apply for this program as well. The focus will shift to developing ones understanding of the Ashtanga method through supportive practices, building sustainability and understanding energetic flow for the asana practice and for life.

Applicants must have a yoga practice of 3-4 years, experience in the Mysore Style classes and an established relationship with the teachers at AYC to apply for this program. If you are interested in the Apprenticeship program and do not have these qualifications, please begin by practicing in our Mysore Program and after a year you can apply to the Apprenticeship Program.

Special arrangements can be made for students living outside of Calgary.

"A gem!"

“What a tiny gem of a yoga studio, the space is beautiful but the real draw is Janet who is an amazing Ashtanga Yoga Teacher, with a depth of knowledge. The Mysore Program is what I am doing and can say it is authentic.”

"More motivated than ever"

“I signed up to AYC hoping to dive deeper into Ashtanga, but what I got was vastly more. I learned efficiencies and breath control, I overcame roadblocks in postures and saw new ways to approach them. I learned about dedication and discipline. I learned about laughing at myself and not taking things too seriously. Best of all, I get to be a part of an amazing community of yogis.

Janet has given me confidence to challenge myself both on and off the mat and I have seen dramatic results. I'm more motivated than ever before to practice. If you have the chance, don't miss coming to AYC!.”

“I love Ashtanga Yoga Calgary - Janet Hawkins is an inspiration to all of us. She supports all her students in a loving way with just the right amount of discipline and flexibility to allow for the individual's needs.”
