Whether you plan to teach yoga professionally or simply further deepen your own personal practice, our 200 hour yoga teacher training Varkala will give you the solid foundation from which your skill will blossom.

We maintain small class sizes and limit the number of students’ to fifteen. We do this to ensure everyone receives the highest standards of quality instruction and the one on one attention they rightfully deserve.

We have created a nurturing and holistic environment where students can come to practice, to learn, to teach, and to ultimately begin the journey inward. You will learn to how to practice and teach fundamental hatha postures, learning modifications, adjustments, and will learn how and when to use props. You will develop a deep awareness and mindfulness towards yourself and others. You will then be able to teach others how yoga can be incorporated into any healing process once you complete our 200 hour yoga teacher training in Kerala. You will practice yogic techniques that will greatly improve your wellbeing so your yoga teacher training experience becomes a complete self-inquiry.

Throughout your studies of 200 hour yoga teacher training you will practice traditional hatha yoga asana and the ashtanga vinyasa primary series. Hatha yoga teacher training classes will be slower paced with emphasis on alignment principles, hands on adjustments and teaching proper verbal cueing.

The ashtanga vinyasa teacher training classes will be taught in the traditional method as taught by Pattabhi Jois. Students will be introduced to one posture at a time and will slowly progress through the series over the course of the month. Student will master each individual posture, thus, allowing a proper opening of the body and the required mental and physical preparation for the subsequent postures. This makes the practice available to everyone, meditative in nature, and also ensures students will not injure themselves.

Students who complete their 200 hr Hatha yoga/Vinyasa yoga Teacher Training program with us will feel confident in their ability to teach yoga to others safely and effectively. Students will have ample opportunity to assist the lead teachers in class, to develop their personal teaching styles, create their own sequences, and teach their very own classes. Our loving, nurturing environment is the perfect place to become creative and artistic, to explore, to blossom, and to gain the confidence needed in order to become a truly inspirational teacher in just 200 hours yoga TTC in Varkala.

First of all, I want to express my gratitude for all the work you did trying to make this course an unforgettable and nourishing experience. I really enjoy the classes and I found it was a really good mix between the Indian side of Sachin, and the western side of Shara. I was really happy with the yoga classes, the alignment lessons, the Guru Ji lessons. This was an intense and nourishing experience in all the aspects.
