Both locations have proven their worth for the be better YOGA Teacher Training in recent years.

YOGA Teacher Training is a great opportunity to get to know the topic of yoga intensively – not just for someone who wants to teach later. Therefore there is the possibility to book the individual modules as “Yoga Intensives”. If you “only” go on a yoga holiday for a week or two and do not take an exam, you will not receive a certificate in the end, but a confirmation of participation. However, you can then opt for the second module any time in future at our other location.

It is important for training managers to give flexibility and freedom of choice. Compared to those who work with weekend modules over a year, for example, modular training enables a deep experience of intensive, own yoga and meditation practice: a great asset for a future yoga teacher!
