About The Other Side of the Mat

It’s our belief here at The Other Side of the Mat that everyone who practices yoga would benefit greatly from enrolling in a yoga teacher training program. Why? The answer is simple. Completing a yoga teacher training program is an incredible opportunity to learn not only more about yoga and how to improve your life but to better understand the philosophy and science behind living a healthy, balanced lifestyle. It prepares those who wish to step to the other side of the mat and learn exactly how to authentically live your yoga!

The Other Side of the Mat was founded by Ashley Amrita after having facilitated dozens of yoga teacher training programs and certifying over 100 instructors at the 200 hour (Yoga Alliance Approved) level. Each of her teacher training programs were highly successful, transforming lives and creating exceptional instructors who have gone on to teach all over the world. It is Ashley’s goal to share this success with the yoga community everywhere she goes.

At The Other Side of the Mat our mission is to see to it that every yoga studio offers quality yoga teacher training programs developed and taught by our highly qualified team of yoga professionals. We at The Other Side of the Mat are dedicated to sharing the ancient teachings of yoga to all that are familiar with modernized yoga. While learning anatomy and how to sequence a class is a critical part of yoga teacher training, we firmly believe that each student deserves to learn the timeless wisdom and philosophy of yoga as well. The most important teachings this practice has to offer can only we taught through direct experience and our job as teachers is to facilitate the process with loving kindness, honesty and professionalism. We look forward to designing an extensive, far-reaching yoga teacher training curriculum for your studio. Join us and countless others on The Other Side of the Mat for our teacher training programs at multiple destinations, workshops and exotic yoga retreats.
