A perfect place to relax, where the only things to do are diving, snorkelling, surfing, sunbathing and of course yoga.

When does the course begin and end?
One of the greatest benefits of this online training is that you can begin and end it as it suits you. You can do the modules in your preferred order. Each course takes a minimum of a few days depending on your own pace. We offer for each module a 5 days schedule.
What is the difference between a fully online training and a part online/part on-site training?
We have designed this 200hour Training so you can have more time to assimilate all informations. We know that a 3 weeks intensive course can feel like a lot of informations at once. By choosing the online option, you will be able to follow each lecture at your own pace. This is the perfect solution if you are not able to travel for our immersive training or if you wish to have more time to study the lectures. We still believe that to gain the proper skills needed as a Yoga Teacher, training in person is the best. This is why the second part of the training will also be offered as an immersion in our beautiful shala on Nusa Lembongan (Bali). This way, we will be able to work together to deepen your yoga practice and to develop your teachings skills. This will be an amazing opportunity to practice teaching, receiving live feedback from students and teachers. If you are not able to join our Immersive part 2, don’t worry! We will also add these modules online and offer you support and feedback during and after the course.
Do I need to a be a yoga teacher to take this course?
Not at all! This course is the perfect way to begin your journey as a Yoga teacher.
Can I take this course if I am already a 200hour certified teacher?
Of course. Some of our students have already done a 200hour and either felt unprepared to teach afterwards or feel that they need a refresher. This course is perfect for you. You will gain continuing education credit while being able to review and deepen your knowledge. Our aim is to train confident teachers so we will be here, supporting you on your journey whatever certification you might already have.
Will this course certify me to be a yoga instructor?
Yes, this course will certify you as a Yoga Teacher.
Are exams required for course completion?
If you would like to receive the CE credits there will be a final assignment due at the end of the course. If you are a just taking the course for your personal journey, or are not registered with any Yoga Alliance, then you do not need to complete the final assignment.
Is this Yoga Alliance certified?
Yes, we are a RYS with the Yoga Alliance and our courses are fully recognised by them. Due to the current situation with CoVID-19, the Yoga Alliance has amended their policy to allow for our online trainings to be considered as “contact hours” until December 31st 2020. This means that the if you complete Part 1 of the course by December 31st, and the second part with us on-site at a later date, your certificate will be fully recognised by the Yoga Alliance as a traditional 200hour YTTC. If you are not able to join us for an immersive Part 2 and will follow this section online, you will still gain a 200hour Yoga Teacher Training Certification. However, it is possible that Yoga Alliance will have updated their policy again and so we cannot guarantee that they will accept this for registration with them. Please know that registering with the Yoga Alliance is not mandatory in order to teach Yoga, and less than 10% of students choose to pay an annual fee to be registered on their website.
