<< All Events

We are thrilled to offer our 300-hour training to qualify for Yoga Alliance 500 hour trainings. To qualify for this training, you must have a 200-hour training certificate in Ashtanga Yoga (either with us or another school).

We are excited to deepen the growth and knowledge of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga for yoga students and teachers alike! In this training, we will do our best to guide you to cultivate inner growth and self-development through a committed practice and self- reflection and then learning to use this inner guide to share the knowledge with others.

A bonus to your learning: you will have 3
months access to the on-line videos of all the
topics we cover during the 5-week 200h intensive. An amazing tool to refresh your memory or update your notes before embarking on the 300h training!

The training is recognized internationally. Every year there are people from all corners of the world coming together to share and go deeper in their mutual passion for yoga in this beautiful city, Paris (or some qualifying intensives in the South of France).

The 300+ hour training is based on the Ashtanga Vinyasa Primary and Intermediate series, which gives a solid base to any dynamic asana practice since most forms of contemporary flowing yoga styles, have evolved out of Ashtanga.

During different intensives review key poses and the ‘gate-keepers’ from the primary series and we go over the asanas from the intermediate series; discovering the basic movements which are universal alignment techniques one can apply to all the Ashtanga series, exploring different ways to modify each position with and without props, learning the contraindications for each asana and alternatives to achieve a similar outcome, how to do hands-on adjustments and especially exploring the anatomical understanding to keep each yoga student safe in the poses to encourage a life time practice.

In addition, we will continue from the kriya and pranayama practice learned in the first training. Adding on to the practices so that these highly effective and deep practices are taught correctly and safely. They appear subtle however, their subtleness is deceiving therefore, kriya and pranayama need to be taught with intelligence and awareness.

And of course, we will go deeper into the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, building on the basis from the first level training and then begin into the Bhagavad Gita. These classic texts teach us that the ‘real’ yoga is beyond the physical aspect there is a great emphasis put on yogic philosophy and daily living to ensure that we all remember to put in that “1% theory” and apply it to all aspects of our lives; on and off the yoga mat and meditation cushion!
