This 200hr training is based on the hatha yoga tradition, with Meditation being an important part of the course, and at the end of the training you are invited to lead both an asana and a meditation class on your own.
Discover various types of hatha yoga classes and support each teacher to create authentic sequences that fit the moment. In the training the morning asana classes have more focus on alignment, strength, endurance and flexibility with a great sense of body and mind awareness. The afternoons are more restorative with yin yoga and yoga nidra, or for example focus on a particular chakra.
