The Delight Yoga Academy

For those who wish to share yoga with others

Rooted in the tradition of authentic lineages, the program aims to bring yoga back to its true place as a living art, and as a complete path to awakening.

Delight Yoga Teacher Training has emerged to provide a solid foundation for those who are seeking to explore the true gifts of yoga and share it with others.


We are an experienced faculty that are committed to provide an open and inspiring education, while allowing you to uncover your true interests and potential within the yogic path.

Delight Yoga Academy is a “yogic-training”, a sacred ground to receive training, guidance and practices to become a real yogi (one who’s life is dedicated to awakening). The training is an immersion in all the aspects of yoga. Students will experience directly how all the yogic practices can be woven together for deep insights into yoga as a living art and spiritual awakening, and it is from here that the true teacher arises.

Our aim in this training is to put emphasis on all aspects of Yoga equally,
not just its psychical and therapeutic aspects.
