200 hours’ Foundation Yoga Diploma and 300 hours’ Advanced Yoga Diploma for a total of 500 hours
Since we strongly believe that it takes some time and commitment to mature into a yoga teacher, we do not offer “fast-track” teacher training courses: the basic 200 hours’ certificate takes 8 months to complete, and the additional 300 hours leading to the 500 hours’ diploma takes another 10 months. We consider this as the strict minimum to allow growth and evolution.
Our courses are structured so that each time you take a new step, it is followed by a period of consolidation. Besides postures and their modifications, we take the time to dive into topics as varied as the practical philosophy of the Yoga-Sūtra, technical aspects of course planning, teaching methodology, several applied prānāyāma techniques, anatomy and physiology in the context of yoga, the theory and practice of meditation, class observation, supervised teaching, and more. Of course, mentoring and personal practice are also essential in this process.
We also offer post-graduate workshops for teachers who wish to continue their studies. These courses are registered with the Yoga Alliance as Continuing Education Units. Here are a few examples of courses we taught in the past or are about to introduce in the near future:
The Hatha-Yoga-Pradipīkā: study of chapters I, II and III (verse by verse)
The Thread of Yoga: Yoga-Sūtra study of chapters III and IV (sūtra by sūtra)
The Thread of Yoga: Yoga-Sūtra, thematic study of chapters I and II
the Art of Breathing: a prānāyāma course
Cakras and the subtle anatomy of yoga
