Due to Corona,

not scheduled for 2021

Making the step to become a yoga teacher is for many of us the beginning of a journey towards awareness and living more authentically. 


This  holistic yoga teacher training program helps you start your journey and create real change in your life. It gives you great insight into what yoga is, the various yoga styles, yoga philosophy, the energetic body, applied anatomy, it teaches you yoga poses and how to design, plan and sequence a class.


However, more than that, it with help you to understand what kind of yoga teacher YOU want to become and what service you would like to offer your community.  You will develop confidence, skills and an understanding of your own authentic qualities and gifts to feel comfortable and empowered to start teaching your first class.

We are all different, and so are our students, so how lucky are we that there are so many different yoga styles and that yoga can be applied in so many different ways to suit us all! The approach is to not reject the different yoga styles but to use them to best suit ourselves as teachers AND our students. This course is designed so that at the end you’ll feel confident to start teaching your first classes, whether that is a flowing class, a class for kids or elderly people or perhaps a yin style class. You will have the tools to become the best teacher you can be, helping you to understanding where your qualities are and how you can apply these best to give back to the world. You’ll be given practical and useful material to take with you in order to find your feet and to hit the ground running.

The Yoga Teacher Program  can be followed just by itself as a 200 hr registered yoga teacher, or in combination with our Level 2 Advanced Yoga Teacher Training in order to receive your 350+ Advanced certification.


This course is also excellent for anybody who would like to take their own yoga journey to the next level. In which case you can choose to attend the first 100 hours (10 day intensive) variation of this course which will help you to gain a deep understanding of yoga, philosophy and anatomy without having to focus on specific teacher skills.
