Become a yoga teacher within 1 year: 12 weekends and self-study

12 yoga weekend modules

Within 1 school year, there are 12 yoga weekend modules of 17 contact hours with approximately 5 hours of self-study. Apart from this, you are also expected to practice yoga almost daily.

If you successfully complete the yoga teacher training, you can register as a yoga teacher at Yoga Alliance.

The material of the course and the lessons are in English (Dutch questions are always possible; I can translate).

The advantage of training at weekends is that the time between weekends gives you more time to familiarize yourself with the material and to practice and deepen it yourself. Of course, you need the discipline to do this.

In the weekends you practice everything as a student and also as a yoga teacher for your fellow students. During all weekends there is attention for yoga poses and meditations. The 12 modules are:

  • Introduction to yoga, asana & being a yoga teacher
  • The tantric origin of hatha yoga
  • Anatomy of the human body
  • Anatomy of thoughts
  • Inclinations of the ego & the Divine Self
  • Chakras & yoga nidra
  • A glimpse of tantric scriptures and meditations
  • Bandhas, mantras, mudras & pranayama
  • Purification of the mind – brahma viharas (loving-kindness, compassion, co-joy, equanimity)
  • Purification of the mind – meditations with gratitude and appreciation
  • Being a yoga teacher – implementing all theory and practices
  • Being a yoga teacher – a variety of yoga classes & exams

Location: Wageningen

The teacher-training-weekends are given in Wageningen in a yoga studio that is located next to the beautiful park. Wageningen is near Ede, Arnhem, and Nijmegen, and the train station Ede-Wageningen is less than half an hour by train from Utrecht. The yoga studio is only a 10-minute walk from the bus station in Wageningen. With good weather, we can practice yoga outside in the park. Parking is free. There is no sleeping accommodation at the yoga studio, but you can easily arrange a B&B yourself for Saturday evening. Then you can make it as cheap or luxurious as you want.
