International Yoga Teacher Training YTT (200) Sri Lanka

Become a Teacher

About the Course

In order to become an inspirational teacher, one has to start by truly knowing themselves, that is where the work and the fun begins–and that is the kind of journey we want to invite you on. Taking place in Tropical Paradise in lush nature, you will retreat to a space of serenity, allowing you to establish inner peace surrounded by the beauty nature. Meditate, heal and connect with your true Divine self. Share your Knowledge and experience.

This yoga teacher training is as much a personal journey as it is a communal one. Over the course of 28 days we will not only deepen our bond with, and our knowledge of, our true Self, but many of us will form lifelong relationships with each other as we join together to take a deeper look at yoga and what this incredible and ancient practice has to show us. 

Through daily practice, study and discussion, you will discover and develop all of the tools necessary to establish a strong and supportive practice for yourself and your students. While a 200 hour YTT is a substantial commitment in terms of time, and one’s devotion to self inquiry and practice, it is also one of the most exciting, fulfilling and transformational experiences one can embark on.
