Yoga Academy International teacher trainings offer you an immersion into the yogic lifestyle and the path of teaching from the heart. Students experience living in a close community while being surrounded by the healing power of nature. Our students benefit from our emphasis on practice teaching time, one-to-one mentoring and small class sizes. Right from the start, teacher trainees teach fellow students, receiving support and feedback along with guidance from our instructors.

Following a traditional yogic path, all of our programs promote inner peace and transformation of mind, body and spirit. Complementing our professional curriculum is dedicated time for silent reflection and personal revitalization. There is ample opportunity to relax while exploring the beach, forest and lakes or taking long walks outdoors. Delve deeply into your inner and outer surroundings.

We offer nourishing, delicious and healthy cuisine. Our gourmet meal plan always impresses. Bodies embrace our delicious eats and spirits are lifted by the music, song and stories enjoyed in the evenings.
