Yoga Styles: Hatha Yoga

Our Yoga Teachers Training focuses on bringing out the knowledge and wisdom you have gained from your own yoga practice and giving you the skills, confidence, and qualifications to transmit them to others.

You begin teaching from the first sessions and get valuable feedback, encouragement, and training to grow as a teacher. We use modern learning techniques as traditional ones to suit your style of learning for the greatest efficiency.

During the training, you will develop your understanding of yogic philosophy and sacred texts and find your original way to bring it to yourself and your class's awareness.
