Deepen your practice with our Hatha / Vinyasa and Yin yoga workshops and Teacher Training Courses in Goa, India and Kraków, Poland
Group classes are a great way to keep your yoga practice regular and share your experience with others. But if you want to deepen your practice in a particular type of asana, vinyasa, yin yoga, pranayama, meditation or learn about anatomy, physiology or the history of yoga, workshops and courses will help you take your practice to the next level.
We encourage you to travel to India - the birthplace of yoga, for a more genuine experience of learning.
We specialize in Hatha, Vinyasa and Yin yoga styles, as well as in yoga anatomy and somatics (bodywork and movement methods that focus on internal physical perception and experience).

want to learn about practical anatomy to make sure your teachings are safe and beneficial
love to meet people from different life paths and nationalities who are passionate about yoga

This is what you get when you decide to study with us:
Focus on quality: 100% experiential learning of all taught concepts and techniques of traditional yoga. We don’t let you blindly rely on our words or the words of ancient scriptures – the course is based entirely on practical assignments which lead to personal experiences. The theory and philosophy of yoga are carefully selected to deepen your own practice and help you form your own opinion about some key modern concepts and debates in yoga. We don’t want to train your memory or convince you to stiff doctrines. We provide diverse, but not exhaustive theory and philosophy training.
Small batches (7-10 students in most locations) and over 300 graduates from all over the world.
168 contact hours with Lead E-RYT Trainers in the 200h course and 270h in the 300h course, as compared to about 110h in most TTCs!
We will share with you the cutting-edge scientific discoveries in anatomy and research on yoga, so that you can work with human bodies in a responsible way. We don’t require that you learn anatomical terms by heart – we have developed a totally practical module which will be indispensable in your daily practice.
International E-RYT faculty with a combined experience of over 20,000 teaching hours and a range of backgrounds. We will give you exposure to diverse yoga traditions and styles in which we are experienced, such as: Hatha Yoga (Bihar School of Yoga, Shivananda, S-VYASA, etc.) Vinyasa, Power Yoga, Ashtanga Vinyasa, Yin Yoga, Prenatal Yoga, Yoga Therapy, Yoga with Props, Acro Yoga etc. We believe in a human-centric approach to yoga where the individual comes before brand names and dogmas. That's why we blend the best of these traditions in our methodology. We ensure that you have a complete knowledge of all authentic yoga practices such as pranayama, mudra and meditation, not just asana.
We want you to inspire your students to transform their lives. We will give you tools which will help you discover that spark of inspiration inside you. Listen to your own story first, before you can open your eyes and ears to the stories inside your students.
Our 200 and 300 RYT courses are suitable for people who value independence in designing their personal practice and creative classes. There is substantial information in the course which will require your full focus during the training. Therefore, we do not offer weekend/part-time courses.
We offer yoga teacher training courses in South India - the land where modern Hatha yoga was revived. The contact with a tropical climate and local culture will help you live a more authentic and holistic learning experience.
The yoga therapy components of our courses are based on our non-YAR credential or other qualification, not derived from our status as a RYS with Yoga Alliance Registry.

All dates of our yoga courses in Europe and India are published on this site and also here and are always up to date. Please use the contact form to request a syllabus, make your reservation and to transfer the deposit.
We typically offer intensive-format courses because we believe that complete immersion in the yoga practice can bring precious experiences that cannot be attained in part-time or weekend courses. However, yoga is not only about a flexible body, but also about flexible mind! In exceptional cases, we can allow modular participation, i.e. splitting your 200 or 300h training across two or more batches.
We are happy to teach yoga in new locations! Please let us know if you wish to host our training courses in your venue or help us organize one in your area!

There are many ideas how to raise funds for your yoga teacher training course. E.g. you can find an accompanying person on Internet fora or Facebook groups etc and get a discount. The unemployed can obtain financial aid from their job office (please contact your regional office, in Polish 'urząd pracy').

We can offer accommodation to a limited number of participants!
When comparing the costs of yoga training courses please keep in mind that our batches are very small: a maximum of 8 students per class in Krakow and around 10 in other locations. We strongly believe that an authentic, personal approach to each student is essential and we encourage small groups in all yoga classes. This is how yoga has been taught traditionally. Also, there are not hidden costs: all necessary modules, handouts and certification are included in the course fee.
When you sign up for more than one course with us, you will receive a discount.
