Training Overview

Santosha’s Yoga Teacher Training combined Combined Level 1 + 2 500 hour Certification is a unique opportunity to complete both of our comprehensive Yoga Teacher Trainings in one amazing immersive two-month Bali experience.

Our Level 1 course is designed to provide a comprehensive foundation for teaching yoga skillfully with compassion and awareness. The Level 2 training then allows you to take your foundational knowledge to the next level, designed to help you achieve praadhiita (“advanced in studies”). This course is a wonderful opportunity to develop not only as a yoga teacher, but also as a human being embodying yogic principles in your everyday life.

The method of our Teacher Training concentrates on a creative fusion of Classical Yoga, Ashtanga, Vinyasa Krama Yoga, and Iyengar poses woven together by a unique blend of vinyasa flow that is accessible to all levels and abilities. The Yoga taught is not another ‘style’ of Yoga but an authentic, integrated presentation of the whole spectrum of the ancient yoga teachings drawing from the Sri T Krishnamarcharya lineage.

This in-depth training experience supports the shift towards embracing life with awareness, acceptance of oneself, with recognition of oneness and reverence for the earth.

Santosha’s yoga teacher training embraces a holistic approach to the path of Yoga. Combining the wisdom of traditional yoga with contemporary understanding of the body, emotional system, and spiritual practices to serve as a platform for self-inquiry and ignite a process of genuine transformation.

Who is it For?

It is open to students of all levels with maturity and commitment to embark on a personal journey of self discovery, including:

  • Students with the desire to become yoga teachers and complete the Yoga Teacher Training requirements to do so.
  • Students who do not wish to be yoga teachers but have a sincere interest in the subject matter and want to deepen their own knowledge and understanding of Yoga and Self

This course is for those who wish to teach yoga as a career or those who are ready to embark on a personal journey of self-enquiry.

For those who wish to teach, the Yoga training will provide the student with the confidence needed to teach yoga skillfully with compassion, awareness and knowledge. Those who do not necessarily wish to teach have an incredible opportunity to be with like minded people, come to know yourself like never before, connect to your true nature, feel happy and connected in your life and learn tools that allow you to move through life with ease.

Training Overview – Level 2

Santosha’s Level 2 Yoga Teacher Training Certification is offered as a 25 day Intensive program or as two part-time courses, and is for those who are ready to take their foundational knowledge to the next level. This is a 500 hour course (which, added to your existing 200hr teacher training will qualify you for RYT500 with Yoga Alliance).

Santosha Yoga’s Level 2 500hr Teacher Training course is designed to help you achieve praadhiita (“advanced in studies”). This course is a wonderful opportunity to develop not only as a yoga teacher, but also as a human being embodying yogic principles in your everyday life.

The Level 2 Yoga Teacher Training course initiates your further growth from the foundations that you discovered in the Level One course, delving deeper into the essence and teachings of yoga. We feel that progress in Yoga goes far beyond the physical and must include the awakening of deeper levels of seeing and insight as well as the attunement to the subtler messages of the body’s intelligence.

The course offers deep insight into the following five key learning areas:

  1. Techniques Training / Practice

  2. Teaching Methodology

  3. Applied Anatomy and Physiology

  4. Yoga Philosophy / Lifestyle and Ethics for Yoga Teachers

  5. Teaching Practicum

The course offers a comprehensive, intensive and practical training in how to teach yoga on a level that extends from the 200hr + further refines your practice so you may come to a deeper knowledge of Yoga.

The journey of a yogi is a path that allows us to be perpetual students, whether teaching or not. If we are truly following the eight Limb path then we must adhere to the fist two limbs, being Yama and Niyama – the ethical precepts set forth in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. Yama and Niyama are the foundation of our practice without which no spiritual progress along the path of yoga can be made. Many people come to yoga initially as a physical exercise and only later begin to understand the profound spiritual effect it has on our lives. But to establish these spiritual effects firmly upon our mindstream, to embed them within our consciousness, they must be grounded on the bedrock of ethical behavior.

Our practice begins with Yama and Niyama, and extends into asana and the other limbs of yoga. Therefore – a teacher or one who is on a deeper path must engage in ongoing study, Brahmacharya as set forth in Patanjalis yoga Sutras, as well as cultivate growth in his or her daily practice. Yoga retreats and workshops, away from your daily routines, are also beneficial because you have time to focus, you can learn new concepts or practices and you have time to focus if you are taken out of life’s daily chores.
The deeper we understand who we are, the more our light will shine for others. All of Santosha’s teachers take time to study, to be inspired, and to grow. Studying allows an individual to stay connected to the teachings, and continue to be open and to maintain a beginners mind.

Even if you do not teach, allowing time to look within, in a focused way, is the key to growth. With this in mind, Santosha will offer a variety of courses including the Level Two 500 Hour YTT to allow those spiritual seekers to travel within in supportive knowledgeable settings.
