Only studying the theory of yoga is not enough. To fully understand yoga, it needs to be experienced. Therefore, this training is highly practice-oriented, dedicating many hours to the exploration, embodiment, and integration of yogic wisdom. Where other programs only scratch the surface, our 300-Hour Yoga Teacher Training takes you on a deep dive.
Although you will have plenty of free time to explore the island, we recommend staying on campus as much as possible to experience the profound benefits of an ongoing practice. Taking this time to “retreat” from the outside world will help you deepen your awareness, cultivate focus and discipline, and start looking for true happiness within.
Our curriculum is designed in accordance with Yoga Alliance standards. Upon successful completion of the course, you will receive accreditation as an RYT 300. Combined with your previous 200-Hour Yoga Alliance certification, you will qualify for RYT 500 accreditation.
While a 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training is a popular choice, not many continue to pursue an advanced certification. Taking this 300-Hour Training will help you transform into a yoga teacher who stands out from the crowd.

Teaching from that space, the spaciousness of our true essence, one transmits true yoga.
