What is a Yoga Teacher Training?

A Yoga Teacher Training is much more than only learning techniques. It is a deeply transformative and empowering journey of self-discovery. All this, while you learn to teach an authentic and high-quality yoga/meditation class and hold space. You will learn to teach in your authentic style, grounded in the wisdom of Yogic philosophy and with an understanding of body, mind, and spirit. 

Have you experienced the sweet flavor and deep transformation that comes from practicing yoga? Do you wish to take it to a next level by starting to teach yoga? Taking this step to become a yoga teacher has helped already many people to commit to a yogic lifestyle, serve others by sharing skill, knowledge, presence, and wisdom and be open to new professional directions in life. We all have infinite wisdom inside the heart, waiting to be listened to, the potential for healing, a vital body, and mind, a flame ready to be kindled.

'I can honestly say that all classes and lectures were so carefully tailored and given at the exact needed time during the course for us to learn, truly embody the new knowledge and access new life understandings and revelations. This alone is very inspiring to me as I felt I was so carefully cared for, while beautifully challenged to grow into who I am today after this course. I have so much gratitude for all of you, for your availability at any time and ability to hold space for us to go through this transformative experience. As well as for sharing your knowledge with such generosity, and guiding us to rediscover our inner light, for showing us what Yoga is really about, and together, embodying the union of our minds, bodies and hearts.' - Nepheli Galgos, 2021

What is Integral Hatha yoga?

This teacher training is an opportunity for sincere yoga practitioners to deepen their practice and to learn all the necessary tools to start teaching themselves and to pass on the ancient science and art of yoga. Hatha Yoga will be taught in its holistic form with an understanding of the main yogic branches and philosophy. The aim of Hatha yoga is to align the body, mind, and spirit, to free ourselves from blockages that will results in healing, to cultivate awareness, and ultimately to open up for Self-Realization. At the end of the training, you will all be able to give a full integral Hatha yoga class, have the necessary philosophical background and understanding of the mechanisms of yoga. In Integral Hatha yoga, our entire being is involved and channeled towards its source: the Self. 

Over the last 12 years, we have learned yoga from different traditions and styles, including Bihar School of Yoga, Iyengar, Ashtanga Vinyasa, Yin, Hridaya yoga. Instead of working with a fixed set of Asanas, we work with an open system in which you will learn how to make a harmonious, authentic, and well-aligned sequence, adapted to different people and situations.​

Teachers

Floris and Paulina met in 2011 in Thailand and have been sharing ever since the path of yoga and meditation. They have found that a daily practice and a yogic life style brings deep transformation, peace and light. The last 10 years they have been dedicating themselves to yoga by living in ashrams, yoga communities/schools and giving and taking many courses in meditation and various Hatha yoga styles. 

Together it is our wish to lift each other up and to pass on inspiration, skills and wisdom from different angles and approaches.
