Yoga Teacher Training
200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training and Certification at Suryalila
Suryalila Yoga Retreat Centre is especially designed Suryalila to be the perfect environment to hold Yoga Teachers’ Training Courses. The qualities that are important to Vidya Heisel, Suryalila’s Director to enhance and optimise the Yoga Teacher Training experience are:
- A beautiful and spacious yoga hall
- Organic, local, varied and abundant vegetarian feasts
- Excellent Customer Service
- Comfortable and cozy accommodation
- A peaceful atmosphere with no traffic or other noise or distractions
Why do an Intensive Yoga Teacher Training
We have found that removing the student from the distractions of their everyday environment, and putting them in a beautiful, peaceful place enhances and optimises their learning ability. For three whole weeks, you will be fully immersed: talking, thinking, and breathing Yoga with fellow yogis. During the 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Retreat you are taken on a magical journey and given all the nurturing and support you need to be successful.
An Extraordinary Space…
One of the things that is very important to Vidya is having a spacious, comfortable and beautiful Yoga hall in which to hold the trainings. The newly created Om Dome fulfills this desire perfectly, with underfloor heating, air conditioning, walls for inversion practice, a state of the art sound system, atmospheric lighting, beautiful views and lots of space. The Om Dome is fully equipped with Manduka Pro mats, cork blocks, straps, blankets, and bolsters, so students do not need to bring any props with them.
Great Food & All-Inclusive Comfort
Some of the other qualities that Vidya desired to make the location perfect for Yoga Teacher Trainings were organic, varied and delicious gourmet vegetarian food, comfortable and spacious accommodation (no bunk beds), good AV equipment, break-out spaces for small groups to be able to teach each other during the trainings and excellent customer service. Suryalila offers all of this and more. We are particularly happy to host Yoga Teacher Training groups of all traditions.
Suryalila provides complimentary water, fruit, tea and coffee all day to the trainees – even that essential cup of morning tea before practice. There are washing machines in the houses to do laundry. The Shakti Boutique is open daily so that students can shop for necessities and treats; like shampoo, female sanitary products, great Yoga clothes, gifts, books and snacks. We carry anything one might need or run out of when staying at Suryalila for a longer period.
Focused & Supportive Environment
Doing a Yoga Teachers Training Intensive away from home is one of the best ways to become a teacher, as you are far away from your normal routine and distractions and can live and breathe Yoga for the full session with like-minded yogis. You have the time and space to devote yourself to learning in a fully supportive environment.
Life Transforming Experience!
Attending a Yoga Teachers Training in this way can be a truly life-transforming experience, as you are living a yogic lifestyle: practicing Yoga and meditation daily. You will be studying yogic philosophy and putting it into practice simultaneously, as well as eating a nourishing and healthy diet to support your body on your journey.
Yoga Teacher Training Certification and Yoga Alliance
Each school issues their own certificate to acknowledge your participation and success in completion of their programme.
Most Yoga Schools are registered with Yoga Alliance Professionals(UK), British Wheel of Yoga or Yoga Alliance USA. This means that by simply completing the programme you are eligible to register with Yoga Alliance yourself. The certificate alone is enough to allow you to teach worldwide (whilst taking into account the legality of working in different locations).
By joining Yoga Alliance or British Wheel of Yoga, you add credibility to your teaching certification and also certain other benefits, which you can read about on their prospective websites.
Changing Careers and becoming a Yoga Teacher starts with a foundational 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Programme. Read more about How to Become a Yoga Teacher .
