2 residential retreats


from 2.996€

Our program is an in-depth, transforming teacher training laid out in 2 residential retreats of 9 nights/10 days, over the span of 6 months.

It covers well beyond the 200 hrs requirements set by Yoga Alliance, since we believe that becoming a teacher capable of sharing yoga requires commitment, passion and energy (and definitely more than 200 hrs of study). Hence, our program is really a 6-months course of study. During the non-contact weeks, you will be tutored by the teachers, and you will have time to read, teach, and study at your own pace. Our physical practice is strongly grounded in the understanding of anatomy, hence during the 6 months you are required to watch and complete the quiz for a 20 hrs online course on Anatomy for Yoga. This provides a further deepening of the topics that we explore during the classes on Anatomy applied to yoga poses that we teach in the residential weeks.

As per Yoga Alliance requirements, the training covers the following categories:

Techniques, Training and Practice

Pranayama, asanas and kriyas

Teaching Methodology


Use of Cues and Verbal instructions

Anatomy & Physiology

Yoga Philosophy/Ethics/Lifestyle


The training covers also:

Pranayama: theory and practice.

Bhakti Yoga, through Vedic Chanting and chanting kirtan with harmonium.

Functional anatomy. Drawing from the work of Paul Grilley, you will learn the most important 14 skeletal segments and 10 myofascial tissues that you need to be familiar with to create anatomically sound flow sequences and understand skeletal variations and their application to yoga poses.

A through and comprehensive overview of the development of Indian philosophies, religions and spiritual practices. The lectures cover contemporary academic debates, and resources are shared widely, to empower the students to further continue to study on their own.

Specialty classes on inversions, arm-balances and backbends.

Building a solid structure for the students to anchor to for their own self-practice of asanas, pranayama and kriyas.

Setting up a heart-centered business, marketing and social media use.

How to embrace yoga as a discipline that does not only encompass the physical body, but that involves 8 limbs whose practice has the potential to change one’s life.

How to offer variations and kramas when teaching mixed level classes.

Introduction to the ethics and practical aspects of hands-on assists.

Guests teachers are invited to share their knowledge: stay tuned for news on our 2020 faculty !

During the days between the first and second residential retreat the students have to submit short videos of themselves teaching simple sequences. They will receive feedbacks from the teacher for the videos they send, which is an invaluable tool of growth, since it helps tremendously the student to polish their cues, improve the energetic alignment expressed in the poses and their overall sequencing ability.

The students keep in touch between themselves through a private Facebook group which is a great platform to share, inform and grow our community.

In between the first and second week the students are required to collect 20 hrs of teaching. We strongly encourage the students to teach family members, friends or for free at local community centers to get practical experience teaching diverse populations.

The students need to keep a journal of the sequences they teach and possibly film the classes so that they can watch them afterwards for feedbacks. Students are welcomed to share their teaching experiences in our private facebook group.

This training is registered with Yoga Alliance.
