Frequently asked questions about yoga teacher trainings. When can I join? How long do I need to practice?

Is a yoga teacher training going to be really intense? (probably coming from stories about yoga teacher trainings in India)

Every yoga teacher training is intense, as in some ways it is important that we get out of our comfort zone in order to grow and expand. However, we love to make sure that there is a right balance of ease, grace and nourishment - together with empowerment and strength development in our trainings. This way it always stays enjoyable, fun and yes, in a healthy way challenging!

I am not flexible enough; I cannot do all the poses...
Can I still become a certified yoga teacher?

Oh yes, we have heard these questions a thousand times. For us, yoga is not just about the poses/asanas. Yoga means unity, harmony and awareness. Are we able to cultivate more love, more patience, explore deeper and transform, grow and understand? All this is yoga! The poses are tools to get in touch with different qualities and states of awareness inside of our bodies. The asanas are not our destination. They are tools on the path towards the destination, therefore there are many tools we can use/change/choose from while we keep our gaze on the Path. The Path is the journey towards freedom, love, liberation, joy and fulfilment. Is this resonating with you?  If yes, our yoga teacher training is for YOU! We will be happy to share many alternatives to some poses that you might not be able to do. As believe us, you are not the only one, and your future students will love you even more for this! Perfect imperfection is what we all are.

I am afraid of the yoga group experience. How are the group dynamics?

We are happy to say that our groups happen to be very loving, inspiring and just in a great vibe, even if we do online yoga courses. We enjoy the fact that we can become a small vibrant community for 1-2-3 weeks or even longer - in which we share in a training. Wonderful discussions, joyful, fun and inspiring moments we share, however there is always space and possibility to just be by yourself, if that is what you need. Never any obligation, but always acceptance.

Are yoga teacher trainings very strict and serious? Is it rigid?

Our ways of transmitting what we learnt to you, comes from our teachers, from a beautiful pure source and what we cultivated from our own experiences. It is very free and non-dogmatic. We believe that there are many ways to express the same thing and walk the Path of yoga and inner balance. However, there are of course a few guidelines that we ask to be respected, in order to make the experience enjoyable and respectful for all.
