1 year, 200 hrs Yoga Teacher Training Course in the Netherlands
A Yogi is someone who is in control of body and mind. By living a balanced life, making conscious choices and applying the age-old techniques of Yoga, no outside influence can upset a Yogi.
Especially in these times, these are the qualities we need to stand our ground. To be ourselves, to be healthy, happy or even successful.
This training will show you what it takes to develop this in yourself. As an RYT 200 TTC, it teaches you the complete basics of Yoga and you can even start teaching afterwards if you want to. The strength of the programme is that you yourself are central and that you can immediately apply everything you learn to yourself and your daily life.
Don’t just learn about Yoga, become a Yogi!
