I'm a newbie in yoga. Can I apply? Which course fits me best?

If you're a complete newbie in yoga, you'll probably best fit into our 14 days/28 days intensive yoga courses. These yoga intensives are designed for yoga beginners.

At our intensive yoga courses, we provide two 90-minutes training sessions daily, one optional 60-minites warm-up in the morning, a 60-minutes lecture before lunch and an hour-long asana workshop in the afternoon. On Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays we have meditation classes. Sunday is day-off. Altogether, you'll enjoy 39 hours of intensive yoga practice and some theory in a week. A two-weeks intensive course equals to 80 hours of practice whereas a month-long intensive equals to 160 hours.

In experience, one month of intensive yoga practice equals to 12 months (sic!) of regular visits to a yoga studio back home.

Reviews by graduates

It has been a long five week course from 06:00-19:00 mon-sat, day in and day out with not much sleep in between. We all came here thinking we had an idea of what yoga was and quickly discovered we literally knew nothing. But that seed of nothing has now become an internal blossom slowly working its way to the surface- preparing its beauty for the world outside.

The growth and transformation that has occurred here will continue to shape our lives from this day on. The awareness that has been cultivated inside will continue to shine light on the darkest times and keep afloat the pursuit of happiness.

To the friends I made here, may you all go out into the world with new flames inside, sharing the wealth of knowledge we took from HYA.

A big shout out to Saul my Roomie- for putting up with my idiosyncrasies, for sharing the struggles and stresses of YogaTeacherTraining, for being a brother from another mother It would not have been the same without you brother!

Congratulations to all completing the course!!

We can now return to the lives we left and bring new joy to the people who we share this time with.
