The best way to learn is to experience. Delight Yoga Teacher Trainings provide a solid foundation for those who are seeking to explore the true gifts of yoga and share it with others.
Meet our primary teachers Katiza Satya and Kevin Sahaj and practice under their guidance. During the Academy Open Day & Masterclass, you will experience the Sva Dharma Teachings. These unique teachings are the core of our yoga trainings. The first part of the session will consist of a Masterclass given by Katiza Satya and Kevin Sahaj, in which you will get a taste of the practices and the essence of the teachings. After that, you will have the opportunity to ask them questions about the yoga journey and the structure of the Delight Yoga Teacher Trainings.
The Delight Yoga Teacher Trainings offer a full yogic path based on the Sva Dharma teachings: the first step on this path are the Essentials of Yoga (Pre-Teacher Training, 50 hrs), followed by the Basic Teacher Training (200 hrs), which eventually leads to the Advanced Teacher Training (300 hrs). This “yogic training” is developed and taught directly by Katiza Satya and Kevin Sahaj, who are committed to providing an open and inspiring education while allowing you to uncover your true interests and potential (Sva Dharma). Rooted in the tradition of authentic lineages, the program aims to bring yoga back to its true place as a living art of self-realization and as a complete path to awakening.
This training is a sacred ground to receive guidance and practices to become a real yogi: one whose life is dedicated to awakening. It is an immersion into all the aspects of yoga sadhana equally, not just in its physical and therapeutic aspects. The rich spiritual and philosophical depth of yoga is also a major part of the training. Students will experience directly how different yogic practices can be woven together for deep insights into yoga as living art and spiritual awakening. It is from this own experience that the true teacher arises.
With over 30 years of living practice experience, Katiza Satya and her partner Kevin Sahaj keep continuously and organically evolving under the guidance of their master teachers to best serve the needs of their students.
"We offer the Delight Teacher Training in deep gratitude to our masters whose compassion, love and light gave us the sacred teachings of yoga to guide humanity towards awakening."
The Essentials of Yoga (Pre-Teacher Training) is the ideal training if you want to explore and immerse yourself in the true gifts of yoga. It can be followed on an individual basis or in preparation for the Basic Teacher Training. This 50-hour course is offered in August (online) and November 2020.
Due to the corona crisis, 2020 is a special situation. We had to postpone our annual Basic Teacher Training to 2021. For students who want to use the summer period for establishing or refining their yoga home practice, we have specially designed online programs, consisting of:
The Basic Teacher Training (200 hrs) 2021 (postponed from summer 2020) consists of a retreat of 2 weeks in Northern Portugal in July 2021, followed by one week in Amsterdam in August 2021. During this transformative training, you will immerse yourself fully into the process of yoga, experiencing directly what it is like to live and practice full-time. The training program is based on Astanga, Vinyasa and Hatha yoga practices and includes many other aspects of yoga, such as Ayurveda. It is registered with Yoga Alliance as a 200-hour program. In 2021, the 3-week Basic Teacher Training will be offered on:
- 16 - 30 July 2021 in Portugal (14 days) &
- 21 - 27 August 2021 in Amsterdam (7 days)
The Advanced Studies (300 hrs) inspire and guide students in their further development as practitioners and teachers. Satya and Sahaj offer the Sva Dharma teachings in a retreat format during The Heart retreat and The Mind retreat. In these very special trainings, the focus lies on the innermost purpose of yoga: to realize our true nature as awakened beings. The full Advanced Studies program has a flexible modular schedule, offering other relevant subjects such as Ayurveda, Mindfulness and Healing in 50-hour intensive modules. All elements of the Advanced Studies are scheduled every year. The full training is registered with Yoga Alliance as a 300-hour program.

In the online format, the teacher will guide you through the online application ‘Zoom’. Zoom is a live streaming platform with many interactive features - it provides a shared space for students, teachers, and assistants. Delight Yoga has been using Zoom to organise live-streamed classes, workshops, and training days and we have had very positive experiences with it.
Zoom allows you to participate in the training from home, but you can ask questions and connect with teachers and other students as if you were in the same physical location.
