You’re probably wondering what Yoga Teacher Training is like, well we caught up with some of our graduates in Goa to find out about their experiences.
Our training is designed to gradually build your confidence in actually teaching a yoga class. So when you leave you’ll have all of the skills and knowledge you need to start your new life as a Yoga Teacher.
Lots of people have taken our trainings with no plans to become a Yoga Teacher and just want to build their knowledge of yoga and improve their personal practice. Our four week course is the perfect foundation for anyone who simply wants to learn traditional yoga and integrate this incredible practice into their life.
Our Level I Yoga Teacher Training Practice Sequence is founded in the Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series, a dynamic and flowing style of yoga that builds strength, flexibility and focus.
To compliment the Ashtanga style we also teach the fundamentals of Iyengar yoga, particularly focusing on precise alignment in poses, and the use of props and modifications to make the practice safe and accessible for all levels.
Our school director Yogacharya Lalit is a student of a long tradition of yoga from a direct line of Himalayan Masters. Lalit studied under his master Swami Veda Bhati and Grandmaster Swami Rama, who founded the famous Himalayan Institute, and on our Yoga Teacher Training you will learn meditation and philosophy in alignment with this ancient lineage.
