500 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Hatha & Ashtanga Style

The 500-hour yoga teacher training is based on Hatha and Ashtanga yoga. While both put emphasis on the physical element of yoga, Hatha yoga is generally more gentle, and great for beginners, concentrating on standing and seated asanas. Ashtanga yoga is more dynamic and structured and generally follows a set sequence calling for extra focus on breathing and mental exercise.

Practicing yoga regularly is more than just physical exercise, it involves mind, body and spirit and has countless benefits. At the end of our 500-hour yoga teacher training course you may choose a path different from the one of becoming a professional teacher and although the programme is specifically designed to make

you into an excellent teacher, its main goal is also to offer everyone the chance to learn and to master the ancient discipline of yoga ,to create balance, improve their health, happiness and overall quality of life.

Remember that consistency and determination are essential if you want to master yoga. Once you have completed the course and are back at home you must remain focused and consistent in your practice of yoga, as the human body takes its time to manifest all the benefits gained through practice.
