200h Yoga Teacher Training 

In English

*** TBA ***

S01-YA-SCHOOL-RYS-200 official.png

Our 200h YTT programme is for all those who want to delve deeper into yoga, either to become professional teachers or for themselves. Our programme is approved by Yoga Alliance and leads to certification as an RYT-200. It honours the origins and traditional values of yoga while keeping the practice scientifically updated and relevant to our times and culture. It is our aim to empower individuals to navigate our current-day yoga scene with discernment.


Yoga means union or integration and that has been our guiding principle in designing the course. Our course gives you the foundations you need to design and lead sessions that are safe, engaging and true to the path of yoga:


  • You will learn about yoga as a system that promotes health in both body and mind and that is holistic, so that no aspect or part of the person is hurt, abused or neglected.


  • You will learn about the human organism through traditional yoga physiology and under the light of current scientific evidence. We will use the same integrative approach to explore the psychoemotional aspects of a hatha yoga practice.


  • We will refer to classical texts to understand the philosophical and spiritual motivations behind the practice and will examine how they can be applied in our historical and social context.


  • We encourage active and experiential learning, providing you with a safe space in which to explore and develop.


  • You will get personalized constructive feedback that will help you develop and refine your teaching and communication skills so that you can do justice to what you know and who you are while reaching class participants with your offer.


  • We believe in making yoga as inclusive as possible. In this sense, our programme will prepare you to cater for different abilities and levels of experience and we will examine ways in which we can make yoga classes more diverse and inclusive.


  • Approaching the social aspects of yoga from a different angle, we will learn about cultural appropriation and misconduct in modern yoga and question our own approaches, habits and inclinations in order to be respectful and responsible transmitters of this practice.


  • We will guide you towards realizing your professional vision with an overview of the administrative requirements in Germany and of approaches and strategies that will help you find your voice and your place in the market with integrity.



We have prepared our programme based on years of professional experience in yoga and with the intention of serving you and yoga itself. We are looking forward to sharing learning with you and to travelling this stretch of your journey together.
