If you desire to deepen your personal practice and learn more about yoga, you are ready for our ready for our advanced yoga studies program. There is no set amount of experience required or a certain number of years of practice. We have had past students with as little as six months of yoga experience all the way to 20+ years of practice under their belts. It’s about your love for the practice and your desire to deepen your understanding of yourself and the world around you.
Doesn’t matter. For real. You don’t have to be able to do headstands and handstands on command (or at all) to enroll in this program. There is no requirement on arm balancing skills. We will not pick apart your asana practice. It will grow as you learn more about ashtanga yoga and spend time on anatomy and assisting but advanced yoga studies is about so much more than your physical practice.
The beautiful thing about our Advanced Yoga Studies Program is that it brings together people from all walks of life. In our Winter 2018 Program, we had 30 trainees including the following…
– A 17 year old high school student, A 46 year old stay-at-home mom of 4, A 51 year old career landscaper and gardener, A 26 year old newspaper writer, A 34 year old divorce attorney…
…and many more! It’s so amazing to see all of these people come together with seemingly little in common other than their love of yoga and realize that they actually have so many similar life experiences and so much to learn from each other.
There is never a perfect time. You will figure it out. The one constant about life is that it’s always changing. If you feel ready now, figure out a way to make it happen now.
Almost everyone enrolled will have to miss an evening or afternoon or entire weekend. We totally get that life is busy and we will work with you on makeup work to complete the hours you missed.
First, you do not have to want to teach yoga to enroll in Advanced Yoga Studies. Many do it for their own personal development and to deepen their practice. That said, almost everyone who graduates from our program ends up teaching in some capacity whether it be privates with friends and family, teaching yoga to kids or in schools, teaching at local gyms or teaching in a studio. Our program will prepare you to take yoga to many different audiences. We even have one past graduate who started a non-profit that teaches yoga to incarcerated and homeless men.

“The Y2 Advanced Yoga Studies program was truly life changing. Many programs teach you a lot about yoga. However, the Y2 program is unparalleled in the knowledge and experience of its instructors in yoga philosophy, anatomy, and what it takes to be an amazing leader. I graduated with the knowledge and ability to lead a class that people will love and return to again and again. And more importantly, I learned so much about myself and how to be happy and follow my bliss. Thank you Tanner and Johnna!”-ML Stewart
“Advanced Yoga Studies at Y2 is the best investment I have ever made in myself. I met the most amazing people who helped me deepen my practice and let go of my fears. This experience has given me the confidence to pursue my dreams of living a new life doing the things I love. I moved to the lowcountry and launched a website to sell my art and support the preservation of the marsh.” – Janet Johnson
“As a wife, a mother of three young kids and living two hours away made me question my motives for driving from Asheville to take yoga Advanced Yoga Studies at Y2. I chose that drive because a previous teacher had taken this course and I loved his style of teaching. After the first half day of class, I knew this was the best decision I had made for myself. It changed my life in ways I hadn’t expected. Not only did it enhance my yoga practice but it helped me gain a better appreciation of self love – it helped me learn how to share this passion with others and it pushed me to my limits. This was all because of Y2’s owner, teachers and other students. When you love what you do, it is obvious and this was evident throughout my time at Y2.” – Lynn Roberts
“This program was one of the best experiences of my life. Tanner is a gifted teacher with a wealth of knowledge in anatomy and sequencing. He is fierce and passionate – one of the most authentic people I’ve ever known. Johnna has the biggest, most beautiful spirit. She’ll wring you out, lift you up and embrace you just as you are.” – Janaki Gooty
