I am aware that if I face major physical or psychological challenges, I need to seek outside professional support. There are a variety of interactive elements and the Akasha Family is responsive & caring, but I understand that the team holds space for the entire group. Therefore I cannot expect exclusive personal guidance & psychological coaching beyond what is offered as part of the course. COMMITMENT Taking this course online requires a certain level of maturity & commitment. We are here for you, fully committed to support you on all levels.

Don't underestimate the huge power of this small but crucial choice! Experience shows that it really makes the whole difference! Give yourself the space to focus on one thing only, and to actually dive deeper. In addition, there are a variety of potential distractions in & around your home.

Please do your best to create a space that lets you honor the genuine depth of what is offered at Akasha. Allow yourself to explore the depth of authentic Yoga. We recommend printing out and binding the four handbooks in your local copyshop, so you can easily highlight the useful texts. Otherwise you can open the provided pdf files on an additional device while watching the video lectures.

Will the certificate be acknowledged in my country?


You will receive an internationally recognized Yoga Instructor Certificate. With this degree you can sign up with the international Yoga Alliance as a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-200). With more than 53,000 registered Yoga teachers & schools, Yoga Alliance is by far the largest provider of credentials and certification in the world.

BECOMING A TEACHER

Does this course prepare me to teach right away?


On our tropical island we create the ideal conditions for you to grow into a competent and confident instructor. It is wonderful to see how the experience of teaching Yoga can empower and enrich our lives in so many ways. Our strong pedagogical framework and the supportive feedback of our professional instructors empowers participants to feel comfortable as a Yoga teacher. Our curriculum includes tremendous variety, with topics ranging from holding space, to voice training, to leadership qualities, which allow aspiring graduates to become truly inspiring teachers. A crucial factor in becoming a good Yoga teacher is practice. Our Teacher Training emphasizes the direct experience of teaching students in a studio setting. Five practical assignments help the student-teacher cultivate and eventually master the skills needed to successfully teach their own classes . After the practicum sessions the aspiring instructor receives systematic feedback from peers, and very thorough feedback from our advanced supervisors.




Can I find a job as a Yoga teacher?


It is surprisingly easy to find work as a certified Yoga teacher. Most of our graduates start teaching right after our training! In a modern world full of stress and burnout, Yoga has widespread appeal. Countless people need energization, relaxation, and the beautiful harmony that comes from a dedicated Yoga practice. It has been the experience of our students that their humble offerings are gratefully received in their communities. A 2016 study by Yoga Journal shows that there are currently more than 36 million people practicing Yoga in the USA. This is almost twice as many as 4 years ago! Not to mention that there are an additional 80 million Americans with an openness to take a first-time class in the coming year. The enormous numbers of this study show the incredible potential in this flowering alternative field. With almost 40 % of the US population generally open to Yoga, we can be sure that there will be a lot of working opportunities for all of us. When you combine the expanding Yoga scene with the “made in Germany” quality of our training, all doors can open for you. There are innumerable opportunities, and you will for sure find your niche! Yoga is a powerful and transformational practice. What a joy and a privilege to be able to pass on this valuable gift to others. We trust that you will find ways to share your love for Yoga with your community. Come learn the skills that can make sharing yoga as fun as practicing yoga.




Can I join if I only want to deepen my own practice & understanding?


We build on sincere personal practice ourselves and strongly emphasize this essential element in the training. Every course day therefore contains around 4 hours of asana and breathing exercises. A strong self-practice is a wonderful foundation for anybody who wants to explore Yoga on a deeper level. One session per week is dedicated to your individual self-guided practice, and we also share useful recommendations on how to establish your own routine at home. Many of the students who join our courses come only to deepen and enjoy their own personal Yoga practice, without the intention to teach. Nevertheless some who come without that intention wind up teaching. When you love something, sometimes it is hard not to share it! The intensity of the program, the provided material, and our enthusiastic way of transmitting the yogic wisdom, provide a direct encouragement to practice and to pass on this valuable knowledge.





TESTIMONIALS

Where can I find reviews & testimonials?


The intense practice & the eye-opening content of our full-time training trigger evolution on many levels – rewarding you with a new perspective on yourself & the world. Our intensive course is thus much more than a formal Teacher Training that will certify you as a Yoga instructor. We explore the fascinating world of authentic spirituality, and cordially invite you to join us on this exciting journey. Our exploration of the art and science of Yoga will most definitely provide a life-changing experience for you! Check out the genuine videos & written accounts of previous participants on the testimonial page. Our Facebook page provides authentic ratings & first-hand reviews.

ONLINE TEACHER TRAINING

Is the online certificate the same as on-site?


The comprehensive curriculum of our fully accredited online instructor course meets & exceeds the standards of the international Yoga Alliance. The certificate is the same as in our on-site 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training. You will receive a regular Yoga Alliance certificate that carries exactly the same value as one coming from an on-site course. (It does not specify “online” anywhere on the actual certificate.) Successful graduation from this online program authorizes you to become an officially Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-200).




What about the timing of the course?


You are free to take the course at your own pace – while being fully supported by the momentum of a global group of Yoginis. With this option you can create your own flexible schedule – while enjoying the benefits of (optional) daily Zoom meetings. We provide sample schedules for a 1-month intensive format and for a 3-month weekend flow. But it is of course also possible to choose a slower or faster pace. Our experienced team will in any case guide you on each & every step of the way. You must successfully complete all assignments before the official Yoga Alliance deadline. The currently projected date is 31 December 2021. Finishing before that will give you full certification and will allow you to sign-up as a Registered Yoga Teacher: RYT 200.




I am a beginner. Are there any pre-requisites?


Experience shows that our foundation program is suitable for beginners with some basic practical experience. There are no specific formal pre-requisites to join this intensive course, although practical experience is of course of advantage. The key is your openness and your sincere enthusiasm!




How do you check my poses online, making sure I’m doing it correctly?


If you need one on one assistance we are here to help, you have our full support & dedication to the process, just as if you were on-site with us. We check your asana postures during the class you lead and teach. – Our Support Team are always available for advice and assistance.




I am worried about adjustments. How will you teach them?


All of our participants will be working with practice models (friends or family that they are in quarantine with) and that is how they will practice the hands-on adjustments, this included with intensive teachings as well as inter-active live sessions and direct feedback from the teachers will provide a strong foundation for your development.




What is the maximum group size?


In the online format you have our full personal attention. You will receive plenty of personalized guidance and individual feedback about your alignment and teaching skills in supervised practicum assignments.
