This course is reserved for youth between 18 and 30 years old and has 2 weeks of training on site.

To take this course, I understand that I need to:
• Have the time to practice and follow the online program as described below
• Take time off from work and family and travel for the 3-week onsite immersion segment
• Have been practicing consistently yoga for 1 year and be able to demonstrate all the poses
• Be 18 years of age or older

Fill the application form first so that we can check that you have the requested level and let us guide you towards the best course for your growth.

This course is a professional certification and is not meant for beginners in Yoga. Be prepared to demonstrate poses as a learning tool. You will learn how to “teach” these poses to students and will be making great improvements with your posture along the way. 

Students who would have registered without a proper experience in Yoga practice might be asked to extend their training into a subsequent batch.
