there are 28 basic yoga asanas, of which Padmasana is the most difficult and at the same time fundamental for meditation and striving for Samadhi. You can sit in Padmasana, in the absence of knee injuries in about half a year of active practice, everything else can be mastered in a month or two, depending on how often you practice.

I have been doing yoga for 1.5 years. Regularly 4 times a week. I mastered the asanas in about a year. When I say "mastered" it does not mean that I do them perfectly. Before that, there is still a very long way to go and years of training. I mastered it, it means that I know how to do them. And when Surya Namaskar starts a yoga teacher, I already do after her without looking at her and at a fairly fast pace. But this does not mean that the same Downward-facing Dog has already been perfectly mastered by me. I still have to lower my heels, arch my back, etc.

Well, the yoga class itself is structured differently by different teachers, but the general principle is this:

1) Warm-up

2) Standing poses: Surya Namaskar, Tree, Heroes.

3) Sitting postures. All poses are, of course, symmetrical to the left and right. And with back compensation. The symmetry of the left and right poses is also compensation.

4) Lying postures, twisting.

5) Shavasana.

About a year.

At the same time, I've been doing it for about eight years, probably, and I don't remember half of the names of asanas. I can make a program for classes at home, but I like to go to a yoga studio more.

Training programs for yoga teachers last from six months to a year, many hours a week. So during this time it is quite possible to study.
