Whether you desire a deepening understanding of your practice and/or aspire to teach, we have the experience and expertise to facilitate your growth. Participants will receive extensive instruction in the art & science of Hatha Yoga and the skills needed to safely & competently teach this ancient practice.

Scott Anderson will serve as the head instructor. He is the founder of Alignment Yoga and has 25 years experience training teachers. Andrea Russell will teach the Ayurveda weekend of the program. Andrea has been involved in the Advanced Studies program since its inception in 2003, and served as the program’s lead instructor for many years.

Many yoga schools teach the outer form of yoga postures (a knee here, an elbow there...), but neglect teaching the art of modifying the techniques to the needs of individuals. We emphasize that form follows function in the practice of Hatha Yoga. Rather than memorizing endless names and details, you will be encouraged to think for yourself as you refine your observational skills. We firmly believe, to paraphrase the old adage, it's better to teach a man to fish than to simply give him a fish to eat.

What Sets us Apart
Alignment Yoga is the most experienced yoga training school in Wisconsin, having offered advanced programs since 2003, with approval from the Yoga Alliance and the Wisconsin Educational Approval Board. In addition to our quality instructors and low student-teacher ratio (10:1), we have placed emphasis in the following areas:

  1. Our exploration of the techniques of asana, pranayama, bandha and kriya are comprehensive and backed with a rigorous study of anatomy and physiology. You will understand not only the inner workings of these techniques, but develop an extensive array of techniques to transmit your understanding to your students.
  2. Our study of the history and philosophy of the Hatha Yoga practice is guided by instruction from master Sanskrit scholar and former University of Bombay professor Nagindas Sanghavi. Nagindas, a scholar from India with over 70 years' teaching experience, personally taught the Alignment Yoga staff the grace & beauty of such seminal texts as the Bhagavad Gita and The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, and those insights are shared with students.

The 200-hour training occurs in 12 weekend sessions. Each weekend, the program runs from 12PM to 7PM on Saturday and 9AM to 6PM on Sunday.

* The October weekend will go from Friday to Monday.

This program will be held at Mound Street Yoga Center, which is located at 1342 Mound Street, Madison, WI 53715 (map).

When I first started yoga with Scott Anderson a year ago, I was in  chronic body and joint pain. I had been unable to break thru the  cycle of activity, pain and injury. This had been going on for many 
years, and was taking a toll. Now, I am living in a body that has the 
strength and flexibility that I had decades ago, and with vastly 
reduced body and joint pain. I am impressed with the knowledge Scott  has of the body, as well as the mind-body connection, and how he was  able to introduce exquisitely appropriate and consistently small 
steps into my practice that built steadily upon each other to create  where I am now. I am not only having the pleasure of a renewed body, 
but the classes and teachings Scott has provided have helped to  create a very necessary and steady platform for my inner development 
as well. Scott's classes are a delight to partake in... they demand  us to be all we can be, and yet remain lightened-up as we do it. Scott is also a role model for me of someone who sincerely practices 
what they preach. It is a pleasure and a privilege to be able to 
study with someone of this caliber.
