Our passion for our teacher training comes from the love for working with inspiring people who courageously take the giant leap towards self-knowledge and self-empowerment by joining this course.

We appreciate each of our teacher trainees’ unique personality, personal history and motivation to do this life enhancing course and we are driven to set a standard that is over and above the expectations of what the yoga alliance 200-hour registered training requires, as well as what the teacher trainees themselves feel that they can achieve.

This might sound overly optimistic, but it is really quite a simple method. With the certainty of developing a philosophical, anatomical and technical understanding of the practice on our course, we are also very aware of the need to strengthen the bridge between understanding all of the TTC yoga modules on a personal level and o being able to effectively deliver an inspiring, rewarding and professionally managed lesson to others.

Spend 28 days at the beautiful turtle cove yoga resort in tofo, mozambique and become an internationally accredited vinyasa-flow yoga teacher. Over 200 hours you will become skilled in the following:
