Have you experienced the sweet flavor and deep transformation that comes from practicing yoga? Do you wish to take it to the next level by starting to teach yoga? This teacher training is an opportunity for sincere yoga practitioners to deepen their practice and to learn all the necessary tools to start teaching themselves and to pass on the ancient science and art of yoga. Hatha yoga will be thought in its holistic form with an understanding of the main yogic branches.
The aim of Hatha yoga is to align the body, mind, and spirit, to free yourselves from blockages and ultimately to open up for self-realization. At the end of the training, you will all be able to give a full integral Hatha yoga class and have the necessary philosophical background and understanding of the mechanisms of yoga. An in-depth knowledge of the yoga Sutras of Patanjali will be thought to understand the original meaning of yoga and to guide you into spiritual oriented life and practice!
You will have to bring your own tent, sheets, blankets, and more. Akasha will provide you with a beautiful camping spot and an outside shared shower and compost toilet. You can also use all the inside facilities.
You will have an attached bedroom and shower that has to be shared with your roommates. The room has a beautiful view and lots of natural light.

The echoes of this history can still be heard in stillness.
It is surrounded by fields, trees, nature and a beautiful castle. You will be sharing the house with all the students and teachers. We see community living as an essential part of the training. By living together, we can inspire each other, as well as face all the triggers that may arise from a loving space of the heart.
