2-Week Intensive 200 Hour Hatha Vinyasa Yoga Training


This training is a journey, a transformation, a discovery of the self through the encounter with others. You will acquire solid fundaments to teach Vinyasa Yoga, other structural styles and Yin Yoga.​

The senior teachers have more than twenty years’ experience in guiding and training teachers and are assisted by excellent side-teachers specialized in diverse areas of expertise. A team of instructors, rather than one individual teacher, lead each teacher training, to provide students with a 360° overview of Yoga.

The training is precise in teaching asanas and their alignments while anatomy focuses rather on the movement and the parts pertinent to a yoga class than being a general topic.

There is a great emphasis on teaching techniques and practice teaching sessions in order to allow the students to be able to teach as soon as they complete the training.

Pranayama and Meditation are also an important feature of this training, just as it is a contemporary vision of philosophy and the spiritual characteristics of Yoga, which will be conveyed in a simple language.

This unique yoga school is also a community and “laboratory” that wants to promote wellness art and mind and body knowledge. A real immersion in practice. A life change boost, to meet new friends and become part of a small Community. 

You will live inside the beautiful natural bubble of Cascina Bellaria, which means great food, events, concerts and many initiatives that will make you training a unique and unforgettable experience. The only hard part will be leaving it.

You can attend this intensive course in one single 2-weeks course or split the training in two parts. Only 15 students is accepted in each course to ensure the best teaching environment

This teacher training includes your course fee, accommodations, certification and all meals.

This program and the subsequent subdivision in sections follow a specific methodology of that combines the analysis of the anatomical alignments with their psychic and emotional qualities, highlighting the link with some key terms of the Indian cultural sphere (Chakra, Dosha) and the application of these qualities within the contemporary world. This way to see things is the same as in the "Asana" section of the basic school text: Hari Yoga, by M. Mandrino.

In addition to individual asanas, basic sequence, its logic and possible asana variations or replacements, is studied and analyzed. Vinyasa's art and logic, such as Marjariasana and Surya Namaskara, or fluid passages from one asana to another, are another peculiarity of dynamic approach to yoga asana.

The school's practical and theoretical approach allows the student to look at Pranayama from many points of view: the energy or vital flow is analyzed in its historical and theoretical meaning, but also immediately applied through techniques which involve the use of diaphragms, concentration and mental presence. The breathing cycle and the basics of the respiratory system are part of the general presentation of Pranayama as well as the breakdown into the 5 traditional types of energy flows or Vayu and the Bandhas.

The program is divided into different modules, each comprising a practical part, in which participants are guided to experiment directly with Pranayama techniques, and a theoretical one, which explains the historical-cultural origins of practices and their psycho-physical effects.

You will dive into the art of teaching through different approaches that highlight the abilities of each one. Discovering your linguistic, camouflage, kinetic, creative, logical, poetic skills, etc. will represent a good part of the lessons that the school reserves to practice teaching, in order to allow students to emphasize their personality as a teacher.

Learning to communicate the principles underlying the various sequences, Vinyasa, Pranayama, meditation, as well as learning to dialogue with students - a teaching ethics - are the main points of this section.

Some lessons on philosophy and Yoga history are part of the 200hr yoga teacher training. This section allows you to understand the historical-cultural origins of yoga and to project this knowledge into the context of contemporary life. Observing the similarities among the different traditions, cultures and philosophies that studied the body-mind relationship and the interdisciplinarity of their methodologies and techniques is one of the strengths of the Yoga School. More generally, the absence of dogmatism, the openness to syncretism, and the adherence to the universality of awareness-centered approaches is the basis of the school cultural system.

Mantra - you will be studying the value of sound-vibration and more specifically the repetition of mantras.

Mudras represent one of the ways to gain access to the close connection between beauty and presence, form and content. First theoretical approach - an overview of the origin, use and traditional features - follows a more detailed analysis of some hands and head mudras with indications of benefits and techniques.

The three bodies, the five sheathes and the seven progressive chakras. Kundalini and progress by way of kundalini/shakti, techniques and methods for reawakening kundalini, obstacles in its ascent, nadi and granthi.

You will be focusing on the meaning of meditation, on how this practice has manifested itself in the history of cultures, and on its effects on mind and body from both a scientific and subtle physiology points of view.

This historical-philosophical-cultural approach is complemented by the analysis and experimentation of some of the most well-known meditation techniques, using tools such as breathing, mantra, visualizations, chakras, major Nadi, sound and senses. Most of the meditation approaches taught during the teacher training are Kriya Yoga, Raja Yoga and Kundalini techniques, but also practices close to the Buddhist and Zen traditions.

The relationship between the mind, body, and nervous system allows us to enter into the benefits of the gift that meditation gives us. Understanding how our mind and the nervous system work, allows the students to perceive the labile boundary that separates the various practices that lead to the deliberate conscience of the present, observing actively and without judging the different forms of thought, emotions and feelings that pass through the body-mind system.

Bringing a bridge between western and eastern thinking means meeting holistic disciplines. Olos, totality in Greek, indicates a multidisciplinary approach to knowledge and, in particular, to complex systems. The "human system" is one of the most significant examples to investigate for its complexity and functioning: man as the interrelationship between body, mind and the environment as a whole is a good example to explore the richness of the relationship between everything and the individual parts. The search for a balance within the complex human system is at the heart of many Oriental thoughts. How to reconcile the knowledge that comes from our Western education, the "lifestyles" of the system we are immersed in, and these non-analytical, rhymomatic, and often implicating an active dialogue between ethics, medicine, psychology and self-knowledge?

This teacher training provides basic information to get closer to the yoga world as a holistic system. Students are invited to enter the dense mesh of Ayurveda and other holistic thoughts (oriental and
non-oriental) in which the self is the indispensable fulcrum that determines the beginning of the research. The urgency of everyday life, its rituals related to food and personal hygiene, physical exercise and meditative spaces for study and pleasure of meeting with the self are the cornerstones of this interdisciplinary approach to living and seeking a conscious balance.

From these premises, the student is invited to reflect on his "yogic lifestyle", the opportunity to share it with the people who form his community and project it towards the society in which he lives.

The anatomy and physiology of the human body are developed through a detailed program that starts from the observation of the various systems that structure the human being to the complex interrelations between muscles, joints, breath and mind in the execution of movements and asanas.

The study of anatomy is a starting point for the student to understand the alignments, benefits, and contraindications of the different postures and movements underlying them, as well as the biomechanical functioning of the Human body and the repercussions on the body-mind system. The immediate experimentation of these notions, the application of the anatomy foundations to asanas, and more generally, to the movement, is one of the aspects of the school's method.

During this teacher training, an introduction to Yoga therapy is also planned. The main topics covered are the following:

Definition of yoga therapy as indicated by the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT) and general overview on the structure of the yoga therapy path; 

Skills needed to practice yoga therapy;

Key features of a good yoga therapist.


This Yoga Teacher Training gives participants the opportunity to qualify for a 200hr yoga alliance certification after successful completion of course curriculum.
