A YTT founded in yoga philosophy
The training consists of nine modules and is designed for you to explore your inner landscape. At the same time we will explore yoga philosophy in depth, as we believe yoga philosophy is the foundation for our physical practice. We will explore the eight limbs of yoga, the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, yoga history and much more.
We will also share modern tools for self study, self reflection and movement inspired by traditional pranayama, asanas and yoga philosophy. Furthermore, we will help you develop your own daily sadhana practice. Together we will develop your sadhana practice, as we believe this is where the real transformation and development happens, and it is in your daily practice you will experience the magic of yoga.
We believe that every person in this world has a unique purpose - also called your dharma. During our 200-hour YTT you will get a deeper understanding of what your dharma is.

Throughout the training we will share several breathing techniques with you. We will educate you about the benefits of pranayama as well as how you integrate pranayama into your teaching. Among others we will look at nadi shodhana, kapalabhati, ujjayi and anuloma viloma.
We will also touch upon kriyas. Among others we will look at how to practise jal neti, kapalabhati and agni sara. We will talk about the benefits of these practices as well as how to integrate them into your sadhana practice.
Chanting and mantras are important parts of yoga, and there are countless mantras. We will look at several different mantras, and we will talk about the importance of both mantras and chanting.
Meditation is an essential part of every yoga practice. In fact, many yogis believe that meditation is the most important part of a yoga practice. Therefore, we will talk about the importance of meditation and having a sitting practice. We will look at the benefits of meditation as well as how you integrate meditation into your yoga classes, and how to develop your own meditation practice.
We will provide you with the necessary skills in order to teach yoga and share your own practice with others. We will share how to demonstrate asanas, how to observe students, and how to use both verbal and hands-on adjustments in your teaching.
We will also look at how you best communicate through language, choice of words and voice. Together we will practise how you actually teach a class, and you will also learn how to meet every student’s needs. Furthermore, we will talk about the relationship between teacher and student as well as ethics.
During the training you will also observe your fellow students teach and teach yourself. In fact, you will start teaching from day one so you have plenty of opportunity to practise teaching in a safe and loving environment.
Lastly, we will look at how you actually start teaching. We will talk about yoga as a business, how to establish yourself as a yoga teacher, how to use social media for marketing and more.
