The training


Yoga teacher

Teach­ing yoga is a ful­fill­ing and respon­si­ble task. A yoga teacher needs to have their own strong yoga prac­tice and pre­cise knowl­edge of teach­ing ped­a­gogy. Not just the­o­ret­i­cal or intel­lec­tu­al knowl­edge is required to pass in yoga, but also being able to apply that knowl­edge in dai­ly life. Through your per­son­al prac­tice you gen­er­ate life ener­gy (prana) which gives you the charis­ma need­ed to inspire peo­ple. Using your yoga knowl­edge in dai­ly life makes you a strong and root­ed teacher with both feet on the ground.


Yoga devel­ops the whole per­son­al­i­ty. You will notice this in increas­ing health and vital­i­ty, and suc­cess and ful­fill­ment in pro­fes­sion­al and fam­i­ly rela­tion­ships. With reg­u­lar prac­tice the con­nec­tion between you and your envi­ron­ment will grow. You will dis­cov­er your hid­den tal­ents and can grad­u­al­ly begin expand­ing them. Yoga leads to aware­ness, high­er lev­els of con­cious­ness and devel­ops your con­nec­tion with your true Self

We use cen­tu­ry old & effec­tive tech­niques from the holis­tic yoga, based on the teach­ings of Swa­mi Sivanan­da. Sup­ple­ment­ed with sci­en­tif­ic knowl­edge from physics, med­i­cine and psy­chol­o­gy, the sys­tem of clas­si­cal yoga is rel­e­vant for the 21st cen­tu­ry.

We, Yoga Vidya Rot­ter­dam rep­re­sent a prag­mat­ic, non-dog­mat­ic and spir­i­tu­al yoga. Dur­ing the train­ing you will work with diverse tech­niques and there­by dis­cov­er what is best for you. You retain the free­dom to inte­grate ele­ments of oth­er yoga or exer­cise sys­tems into your prac­tice. After­all, yoga helps you to expe­ri­ence life in its full­ness and com­plete­ness.
