Frequently Asked Questions

We are thrilled to see that you are interested in one of our teacher trainings!

Q: What is your maximum class size?

A: We cap our classes at maximum 15 students.

Q: Does the training give students all the necessary skills to start teaching right away?

A: Yes, we include as many practice teachings as possible and do workshops on practical aspects of teaching to move our students to a comfortable zone. However this doesn’t mean that you have to start teaching after this training. Many of our students take our trainings just to deepen their personal practice.

Q: Are the trainings physically difficult?

A: We recommend that you have practiced yoga for at least one year before attending one of our 200 hour teacher trainings.

Q: What does the daily schedule look like and what will I learn?
