200 Hour Yoga Teacher Certification

Yoga Teacher Certification through a four week intensive
from 13 January to 8 February 2013

in Rishikesh, India
An Adventure of a Lifetime!

The Africa Yoga Teacher Training is a transformative rite of passage. We view yoga as a process aimed at accessing the profound truths of our ‘being’ness and living more in line with our deepest Self. Just as our yoga practice is a life-long, enduring part of how we connect to the Divine consciousness within ourselves and within all Beings, teaching yoga is a step toward a life of sharing our own personal insights with other travellers who are journeying on this path toward ‘whole’ness.

It is from this grounded, centred place of being that the individual moves into the realm of the teacher.

Join us for an experience of a lifetime!

With this option, there are several price structures, depending on what you require.

Accommodation ranges from approximately $20 to $30 (USD) per day with Ayurvedic breakfasts and lunches.

There is a kitchen available to cater for your own supper, or you can have Ayurvedic suppers prepared for you, or eat out – many options available.

You will also be learning to prepare Ayurvedic food during the course, so you may want to practice cooking in the self-catering kitchen in the evening.

Please speak to us about these or other options so that we can suggest an arrangement that works for you.
