Yoga Teacher Training YAI 200H

Marga Yoga and Holistic Yoga collaborate to offer a comprehensive training program for yoga teachers. This program is inspired by the classic Hatha Yoga and Raga Yoga with emphasis on the psychological and psychosomatic interpretation of postures (asanas) and breathing and the therapeutic approach of asanas in order to balance body and mind. This program is aimed at people who want to teach or experience yoga in depth. Within 10 months they will transform their body, improve breathing and concentration and also understand the spiritual background of the science of yoga, so that they are able to transmit this knowledge.
This training course is only the beginning of a long journey of self-knowledge, self-realization and transformation through the application of a complete system of yoga phylosophy in real life.
