Overview

Are you ready to take your yoga practice to a deeper, more meaningful level or teach others about the wonderful benefits of yoga?

We are committed to offering a training programme that will not only prepare you to teach yoga comfortably and knowledgeably, but we also aim to help you on your spiritual journey to inspire your future students.

Hatha is the mother of all asana practices and with that the most important and fundamental philosophy. Hatha is a general category that may include most yoga styles known in the West. It is an ancient system that includes the practice of asanas (yoga postures) and pranayama (yoga breathing exercises) which help to bring peace to the mind and body, preparing the body for deeper spiritual practices such as meditation.& Vinyasa means movement with breath.its more in motion dynamically with incorporating basic vinyasa principals.Being a qualified Hatha  Vinyasa Yoga Teacher means you have a very broad skillset that allows you to teach many different Vinyasa, Hatha and Restorative  Yoga classes. Your classes will be creative and varied, always aiming to bring peace of mind   to your students.

 

Our teacher training is a unique, profoundly transforming and personal experience that is based on the ancient Gurukula Teaching System which integrates the student's daily life into the yoga training. For twenty-six intense days of community living, students strengthen their own yoga practice through self-discipline and awareness of the nature of mind, body and spirit. They also build a firm foundation from which they are able to teach others confidently.

 

Our teacher training provides a fantastic opportunity to awaken or deepen your yoga practice, meet old and new friends and be a part of the global yoga community which is growing each day. The best part of all is learning that everything we need is already within us and how the practice can lead us into accessing our gifts and beauty from the inside out. The experience provides a great way to find happiness, peace and the ability to share the yogic philosophies with others.


Successful graduates of the course receive an internationally recognized certification by the Yoga Alliance for the 200 hours standard for Registered Yoga Schools (RYS).

 

The goal of this training programme is to produce qualified and inspiring yoga teachers who are able to draw on their own practice and personal discipline in imparting the yoga experience to others.
