Welcome to our Yoga Teacher Training, this training is first of all for you to be a healthy, happy and free person, in body, mind, and actions!  then learn how to guide each person towards self-fulfillment and liberation through the main practices of yoga kriya, asana, pranayama, meditation, and yoga philosophy, as a way of life.

The training deals with the study of yoga in an in-depth combination of anatomy, physiology and the basics of yoga therapy into the integration of the material and the ability to adapt the positions to a person or a situation.

In this training, you will be asked to leave your comfort zone in a variety of ways to gain the power and transformation that Yoga offers and be able to pass it to others.

"Life changing experience!"

Beyond powerful exercises, I received a lot of knowledge and tools in the course to continue my path as a practitioner and in the future as a teacher. The course opened a door for me to the deep and fascinating world of yoga and made me want to dive into this world even more. The lightness and humor alongside the seriousness and thoroughness of the studies at Param Yoga provide a great foundation for those who want to learn yoga teaching.
