The Program

3 weeks training in Portugal and Amsterdam, based on Astanga, Vinyasa and Hatha yoga practices.

This is a unique and transformative training​ program, with fully accredited and inspiring teachers, registered with Yoga Alliance as a 200-hours teacher training.

Week 1: Silence & Purification

July 10th – July 17th 2020
D’Alijo Retreat Centre, Portugal

We start in a unique way - with mauna (silence). It is a way to go beyond the surface – beyond names and forms, social, cultural or psychological boundaries. You will receive teachings and practices silently, allowing yourself to let go of critical thinking, questions and other habits of the mind.

Week 2: Knowledge & wisdom

July 18th – July 24th 2020
D’Alijo Retreat Centre, Portugal

Knowledge is a fruit of learning, while wisdom is a fruit of practice. After the period of silence, your mind will reach a certain clarity, and you will be ready for deeper learning and practice. Your immersion into meditation, pranayama, philosophy and a balanced asana practice, as well as time for practicing in groups, learning Yoga methodology and secrets of good teaching will inspire you toward your own creativity, wisdom and awareness. During this week you will also dive into the science of Ayurveda and its close relationship to yoga and yogic lifestyle.

Week 3: Synthesis

August 15th – August 21st 2020
Delight Yoga Prinseneiland, Amsterdam

This final week is all about going deeper with the knowledge and experience gained and developing intuition about teaching. You will be learning and teaching, refining what you have learned up to this point, and practicing until it is sealed. Creative and dynamic asana, practical yoga philosophy, sound and mantras, therapeutic yoga and synthesis of all are the key subjects of the last and final week.

Basic Teacher Training:

"The training which I received from Satya and Sahaj has been a profound introduction to the more subtle layers of our human experience. The training has brought me a lot of inspiration and insights of what a knowledgeable teacher embodies. They both honor with deep and humble respect their lineage, which I experienced in how they share their teachings. This embodiment is to me an inspiration and reminder that still serves me in teaching. I feel blessed to have been opened to these ancient teachings by them. If you feel ready to deepen the research about yourself and dive into ancient teachings that can help you in your quest, than I highly recommend this training with experienced senior teachers that embodies their practices.

– Maximiliaan Cohen, teacher at Delight Yoga

Basic Teacher Training:

"From the first moment at the training. I knew I was in the right place to deepen my knowledge about yoga. Everything I learned I can use in my live and in teachings."

– Jerica Kok
