Become the ambassador of authentic Yoga

yoga teacher training

This in-depth program is both extensive and intensive, preparing an individual to become a spiritual guide and to teach Hatha Yoga, a tantric form of Yoga, in its most classical and powerful form.

From the standpoint of personal growth, participants will develop greatly enhanced self-awareness and encounter their own extraordinary spiritual awakening.

You will move beyond the very ordinary approach to teaching yoga – likened to an “art of stretching” found everywhere nowadays – and discover what it means to bring a system of transformation and spiritual evolution to others, while deepening your own personal practice until it becomes your life.

Hear it from our students

For whom is this YTTC?

Our Yoga TTC is open to all individuals with a sincere interest to learn a genuine form of Yoga, become a teacher of spirituality in the highest sense, and transform personally in all aspects of their being. It is designed for everyone from the novice to advanced practitioner, with no previous experience required.

Do I need previous Yoga experience to join this course?

No, there is no prerequisite to join our YTTC. Our unique curriculum caters to all levels of students and, in fact, will help you progress spiritually and cultivate a balanced approach to life.

What courses will I be certified to teach upon completion of the YTTC?

After graduating from this Yoga TTC, you will be licensed to teach a holistic 27-class meditative Hatha Yoga program in the format of one- to two-hour classes, as well as Hatha Yoga retreats or workshops of up to five days in duration. Prototypical schedules will be provided for you during the YTTC.

Do I need to be physically flexible to become a Yoga teacher?

No. Traditional Yoga is not defined by physical factors such as flexibility, strength, or endurance. If genuine aspiration to become a teacher of spirituality is present, then physical flexibility is inconsequential.

Will I be required to teach among my peers?

Yes. In weeks 4 and 5 training practicums will be an essential part of this course, aiding in the assimilation of the knowledge and techniques you have learned as well as the development of your teaching persona.

You will be leading Hatha Yoga classes and deliver lectures of varying lengths for your peers and trusted teachers. We find this practical portion of the program a vital component in molding and preparing you as a teacher.

What happens if I do not pass the exam?

If you do not pass the YTTC midterm exam, you will have the opportunity to retake it once in a few days time. If you do not pass it the second time, you will need to leave the YTTC and join it again the next time the course is offered (paying a 50% discounted course fee again).

If you do not pass the final exam of the YTTC you may retake the exam at a later date, dependent upon the availability of our head teachers. Until the successful completions of the exams the certificate will not be issued.

What should I bring with me to this course?

There are indeed some items you need to bring with you. A list will be sent to all participants some weeks prior to the beginning of the program. There are recommendations to the clothing and other items you will need during the course.
