The Gannon Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Home Study Course was developed by Michael through years of training the growing teachers within the GAVY Teacher Training Apprenticeships. This course has always been a required part and the first step of the GAVY-200 (RYT-200 Training).
For the first time, this course is now made available to students OUTSIDE of the GAVY Teacher Training Apprenticeships.
Made up primarily of over 30 audio files by Gannon himself, this course includes lectures and teachings on topics such as:

The intention of this course is to bring all trainees to a similar level of understanding in the area of yogic theory and philosophy, before they even come together physically for the intensive month of training. Students are meant to work at home with this material daily for at least 6-weeks prior to the intensive training month (Although, many students choose to start many months earlier). This is the time to focus on the laborious, detailed work of memorizing terms and learning theory and philosophy.
In this way, the students time and energy during the intensive is focused more on the deep, demanding physical activity of daily practice, teaching techniques and group teaching exercises. Instead of their mind being caught up in so much confusion with new terminology or spending their evenings with intensive study of new material, students can rest and even have some relaxed time for fun
