This training is curated for anyone ready to learn more about the fantastic practice of yoga!
We believe that good things take time, and therefor we have our training during the course of 7 months, so that there is space and time to integrate the learnings, try on different practices (we include restorative yoga, yoga nidra on top of the vinyasa krama program) and to help you start or continue your meditation and breathing practices. When yoga can become a part of your life it's a life long friend.

At all times during this training you will be guided by qualified teachers and assistants, ensuring that you feel supported throughout. Our assistants are previous trainees, so they know for sure how it feels to be in this training and help your ride the waves :)

We truly thrive to teach you these tools, and you do not have to have an urge to become a yoga teacher to take it. Come with an eagerness to fill up your cup on all things yoga - philosophy, poses, body awareness, breathing techniques, how to use your voice in the best way, understand the nervous system and its responses, anatomy, different practices of meditation, learn about the subtle body & rest, meet new people and get a belonging.
At the end of the training you will receive a certificate stating that you've finished 250 hrs of training, this allows you to go out and teach safe and professional classes at any yoga studio or school in the world - if you choose to do so.

It's going down


Tap, click, or high-five each topic to find out more about what we will be exploring throughout the training.




Getting a frame work on how to put the pieces together is like playing the puzzle, once the colors are organized and you’ve got the outline you just need to see the picture! There is a format called Building the Arc that we will work from, giving you as a teacher a blueprint on how to plan timings and content



The study of anatomy deals with the study of basic structures of the body. In this training we’ll explore the major movements, bones, joints and muscles in the body; the structure, composition and function of the spine; and alignment that could put the body at risk, all in all in order to facilitate a healthy practice and understand anatomy in the context of yoga.



We are born on an inhale, and we die on an exhale - all the way inbetween we are breathing. The great thing about it is that it happens naturally, and the even greater thing is that when we learn how to control it we get more in touch with it - and at the same time - more in touch with life itself.

Ethics & History

Ethics & History

As a yoga teacher it is valuable if not necessary to reflect upon one’s ethics and approach to what yoga is and ought to be. Ethics (ethicos) meaning moral character or (ethos) make one self a foundation, accustomed place.

Reflecting especially upon one's ethos leads one to ask: Who am I as a teacher? Who do I want to be as a teacher? In order to live with these questions it seems to be necessary to dive deeper into the history of yoga. For example, why is it that yoga postures have come to dominate yoga today, when it is relatively absent throughout the history of yoga?



Your voice is your power. Voice Activation help you explore your unique vocal expression to help you sing up, speak out, and communicate clearly and authentically.The voice work is designed to create a safe container where tools for personal growth is presented including voice, music, breath, movement and tools for emotional release and empowerment.

Hands on assist

Hands on assist

There is a sacred art called Hands on assist, where you will learn how you can support a student with more than just your words. We have a toolbox with techniques we’d love to share with you, a methodology to fit every situation and make you feel comfy as you move around the room.



We believe in peer support, having a close relationship with someone who’s been exactly where you are, someone you can ask for support, inspiration and is there to give you loads of encouragement. Our mentor and assistant is Teacher Training Graduates, there to hold your hand and tap your shoulder throughout the training.
