Most important during the course the process of self inquiry is understood. We expect that the students enrolling on our courses have an understanding of the essence of Yoga beyond the techniques. Teaching and studying Yoga is a beautiful lifetime journey. The self-understanding and continual awakening that takes place through the practice of Yoga brings the peace to our lives that we all desire. The added blessing of teaching Yoga is an opportunity to share this gift.

Yoga Arts’ courses are designed to be challenging, to offer the opportunity for optimum growth and transformation for the teacher to be. We feel that to be a good yoga teacher, we need to have the courage to look deeply within ourselves and practice the techniques of Yoga with openness and dedication. Touching the essence of Yoga through ones own personal experience is the keynote for sharing this Art of Yoga through teaching.

PREREQUISITE LEVEL 1 YOGA TEACHER TRAINING: To be accepted onto the Yoga Arts level 1 training, students will need to have completed a minimum of 2 years consistent, dedicated yoga practice under the guidance of a qualified yoga teacher(s). The student will also be required to provide Yoga Arts with 1 reference from the qualified yoga teacher they have consistently studied with.

ABOUT THE LEVEL 1 TRAINING: This course offers you a comprehensive and practical training in how to teach Yoga. We welcome experienced practitioners who are ready to refine their skills, in the art of teaching Yoga, and also those who would simply like to deepen their Yoga knowledge and practice for their own personal development.

For participants with less experience, this course will offer a deepening of knowledge and inner inquiry as a stepping stone toward teaching.Teaching Yoga takes many years of passionate dedication, persistence and consistency of practice.This level 1 course offers you a comprehensive, philosophical, theoretical and practical training in how to teach Yoga.

UNIQUENESS OF OUR TRAINING: The unique quality of Yoga Arts’ teacher trainings comes from the quality of our teachers and from the years of teaching experience Yoga Arts has gained by specializing in Yoga Teacher Trainings. The Yoga Arts’ teaching staff has between 10 to 35 years of teaching experience and dedicated Sadhana behind them.

Yoga Arts also maintains its reputation of a high teaching standard by continually optimizing the course content of the trainings to keep up with the demand for training better and better teachers. Emphasis on the training is on truth and authenticity.The Yoga Arts’ trainings are practical, theoretical and designed to be intense and challenging on a physical and emotional level.

OBJECTIVE: One of the main objectives, on the trainings, is to touch and experience Yoga first hand so that the deeper understanding of the essence of Yoga is felt and integrated. This takes place through the individual transformation that is encouraged and nurtured throughout the course.

With this understanding, we believe that graduates can then go out into the world and teach from their heart and from their own real understanding of Yoga, not just theoretical knowledge.

Teaching yoga takes passion, dedication, persistence and consistency of practice. Ultimately the objective of the Yoga Arts’ trainings is to train participants in quality, professionalism, safe and knowledgeable teaching skills and to offer, the teacher to be, as many available teaching tools as possible so that their teaching can be available to everyone.
