Training Structure | 2024 in Portugal

Our 200-hr YTT in Portugal is offered in collaboration with our partner studio, Cozy Yoga & Community. This training is offered as an intensive immersion, encompassing three weeks of in-person study and practice. 


The first week of training focuses on foundational postures, yoga's ancient origins and historical intentions, introductory anatomical principles, and classical Haṭha sequencing. Students will learn the essential tools of teaching and begin to practice teaching their peers. 


In week two, students will build upon these foundations, layering in more intricate alignment, philosophical phases, applied anatomical concepts, and  Vinyāsa-style sequencing strategies. Students will also teach their first basic Haṭha class class with a partner and complete our first written exam. 


In our final week together, we will refine and integrate course concepts, including modern yoga history, injury adaptations and prevention, theming and language frameworks, teaching methodology, yoga business, and ethics. We will focus on application, such as teaching special populations, as well as the subtle skills of teaching yoga including space holding, boundaries, communication, and co-regulation.  Students will complete this process by writing our final exam and teaching a focused practicum (a full-length practice or mini-workshop).


Our three weeks of in-person study will constitute 160 hours of training. Alongside and afterward, students will be supported by resources, workbooks, a curated online library of practices, and continuing calls featuring expert guest lecturers. This online module constitutes an additional 40 hours of YTT study. 

Following our in-person work, the final phase of our process is a 10-hour mentorship, including resources to support you as you begin to share your teaching in your community and set the foundation stones of your yoga business. We will have opportunities to reconnect and integrate as a group, as well as a one-on-one call with a training leader to support the next steps of your journey.
