About This Event

This course will suit you if you have you been practising yoga regularly for a while and feel that you are ready to deepen your practice and to develop yourself, by delving in to the philosophy of the East and the science of the West, embracing a modern, holistic approach to yoga.

It would also be suited to you if you would like to teach what you have learnt, so that you can share the benefits of this wonderful union of body, mind and spirit with others.

This 4 week training course gives you the opportunity to study HathA, Vinyasa and Yin yoga to a level that you can then confidently teach these styles to your students.

You will learn from not only the course leader, Namit Kathoria, but also from other experienced teachers, sharing your training with a small group of like-minded people, together in a beautiful rural setting in Valencia country, Spain.

Courses are offered to a maximum of 8 students to allow us to focus our attention on you and to nurture the family and loving environment that Yoga Sutra Shala respects and enjoys.

On satisfactory completion of your course, you will be awarded a certificate to teach Hatha, Vinyasa and Yin yoga.

Review YTTC Nov-Dec 2019 If ever you consider doing a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training, this is the one to do! It covers the curriculum perfectly from alignment, anatomy, teaching, meditation, chanting, philosophy, pranayama, (contact info blocked) name a just a (contact info blocked) was so extensive, alot to take in, but understandably so, as you are training to become a Teacher in four short intensive weeks. The experience and knowledge from Namit, who ran the course and is director of Yoga Sutra Shala, was so knowledgeable and trustworthy, kind, approachable, empathetic, calm, open, approachable, and so much more. It was a pleasure learning from him as well as the support Yoga Instructors, who each bought their own valuable experiences and knowledge to the lessons too, from chanting, to mudras to chakras, it was so varied! The vegan food was absolutely delicious, and plentiful, with new menus everyday, it never got boring, and suited all taste requirements! The accommodation was also beautiful and comfortable, with everything thought about, from hot water bottles for aching muscles at the end of the day, warm blankets, teas and healthy snack available throughout the day (although with breakfast lunch and dinner so full of amazing foods, one never went hungry!), the tranquil meditation gardens, luscious swimming pool, and many nooks and crannies inside by fire places and outside in hammocks and trees, plenty of places for alone and reflection time as well as comings together for kirtans and making friends! The location is also absolutely stunning, set within the Valencian mountains of Benivissia, with the pure air, in the country amongst olive groves and orange and lemon trees, away from all noise, pollution and everyday busyness, it really is the perfect place to disconnect from the craziness and re-connect with yourself. Thank you to Namit and all the team (from admin, to chefs to cleaners to instructors!), an unforgettable experience, love xx Emma Claire
