We recommend that you have done a 200 hour teacher training (any
style) but it's not necessary: let us know if you haven't and we
will look into what other experiences you have. You can also attend
the course for your own self inquiry only: no need to put the
pressure on yourself to teach if you don't want to.
The intention is to give you, as a teacher, more tools, to broaden
your teaching skills as well as your target groups. Perhaps you
have done a training in a dynamic yoga style and would like to add
a slow style to your teaching menu as well?
We have a set structure in line with Yoga Alliance's criteria, but
on top of that we have a certain amount of hours that we can tailor
made for YOU - and as far as we know, this is quite unique: for
you, as participants, to be able to take part in forming the course
We (Melanie and Jennie) have worked together for almost 10 years
(yoga teacher trainings and retreats in India and Europe) and have
20 + 13 years of experience from teaching yoga and teacher
trainings full time.
We have experienced a lot over the years - and what we keep coming
back to is how important it is to be authentic, to find "your
voice" as a teacher and to have the courage to be YOURSELF when you
are teaching! Working as a yoga teacher is amazing - but it also
takes a lot of energy - and can be very draining if you are not
looking after yourself. (And it's so easy to not give ourselves
that time/attention/selfcare - so in the training we will also put
emphasis on how to create space for your own health and practice:
to stay balanced and mentally strong!
Andreas Larsson, PhD Lic Psychologist, will teach a workshop on
Yoga & Psychology.

Exam: no written tests: you don't have to "prove"
anything: rather: we are interested in seeing that you have gained
an understanding and knowledge, that you can apply to each
individual student depending on his/her needs. You are not
attending the course to perform: you are attending it to learn and
to spark your interest in embarking or continuing on this
