1 year, 200 hrs Yoga Teacher Training Course in the Netherlands

A Yogi is someone who is in control of body and mind. By living a balanced life, making conscious choices and applying the age-old techniques of Yoga, no outside influence can upset a Yogi.
Especially in these times, these are the qualities we need to stand our ground. To be ourselves, to be healthy, happy or even successful.

This training will show you what it takes to develop this in yourself. As an RYT 200 TTC, it teaches you the complete basics of Yoga and you can even start teaching afterwards if you want to. The strength of the programme is that you yourself are central and that you can immediately apply everything you learn to yourself and your daily life.

Don’t just learn about Yoga, become a Yogi!

In collaboration with ANNA Yoga Centrum

‘How to become a Yogi’ is a course offered in collaboration with ANNA Yoga. The centre was founded in 1988 and has a beautiful teaching location in the heart of Arnhem. For many, ANNA Yoga centre is synonymous with an island of tranquillity in the hectic city and everyday life. Yoga is transmitted in an authentic way, firmly anchored in the classical approach of integral yoga, always from one’s own experiences and yet always as if it were new.

For Whom?

The course is a 200 hours Indian Classical Yoga Teacher Training Course. As such, it offers you the complete basic package to start working as a Yoga Instructor. Yet this education focusses on the training of the personal development of the student. The Yoga Teacher Training Course is therefore suitable for anyone who wants to teach, learn more about the traditional principles of Yoga or develop themselves in a holistic way.

In the course you will learn about the traditional teachings of yoga, which contain many concepts that are not covered in other yoga training programmes in the West. This makes it an enrichment for experienced yoga practitioners and teachers. Furthermore, the training offers an excellent basis for beginners in Yoga. It is not necessary to have previous experience with Yoga. The exercises are adapted to everyone’s personal level.

The Yoga Institute

The Indian Classical Yoga Teacher Training Course is taught according to the values of ‘The Yoga Institute’ in Mumbai, the oldest organised yoga centre in the world. The Yoga Institute has been teaching students from all over the world for over 100 years. The Yoga family is represented by the present Guru Hansaji Yogendra. The knowledge and wisdom comes from an age-old traditional transmission from teacher to student. The Yoga Institute is the first centre dedicated to making the Yoga teachings public for householders. 

Content of the Yoga Teacher Training Course in The Netherlands

The teaching programme is a balance between practice and theory. In practice you will learn all the important Hatha Yoga Asanas and techniques in which you flow from posture to posture. Other exercises consist of Kriya, Pranayama and meditation exercises.

The theory focuses on delving into the foundation of the traditional Indian Yoga teachings. Topics include historical developments of Yoga, the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and concepts from Samkhya philosophy and Ayurveda. You will also learn about the effects of yoga on the human body and nutrition.

Learning theory and practising asanas is meaningless if you don’t adapt your lifestyle to it. After each class day, you will have time to apply what you have learned to your own life.

What I would say to someone who is interested in following the TTC is, ‘Do it’! It is not only a truly enriching experience, but one that has the potential to change your life. I absolutely loved the diversity of each day. The mix between theory, practice and different activities is fun and also keeps me alert and energized during the day. I also really, really enjoyed learning about the theory and background of Yoga, Indian philosophy and the Sanskrit language.

My perception of Yoga has changed, as it is more about all aspects of life then I thought. And also there is more behind the practical part which is only highlighted in Western Yoga. After following this course I will take better care of myself before others and tr to love myself more. Not to depend on others but myself and have more faith in the universe.

Before doing this course I thought Yoga was only Asana, untill I came to Centre Lothlorien for the first time and see a Yoga Way of Life. Now I can see how much knowledge there is inside the Yoga philosophy. I had never expected that I really like to give an asana class this much. I mostly liked the cooking Indian food with Pinky. Now I know I will live happier and healthier. It does not need to be perfect directly, but I follow a good path!

It surprised me how much the Teacher Training Course is life-changing for me. I will eat more healthy, will reflect more on myself, focus on positive points, have better control over my emotions and be less egocentric. I actually liked how Pinky provoked my ego, as that is where the change started. Also I liked the topics about knowing ourselves and helping ourselves to be happy. I really loved the people! This is an experience to help you understand yourself better. It will change the way to look at the world. You can get rid of some burdens and probably be happier!

This Teacher Training Course is firstly not about becoming a teacher, but about figuring out who you are and how you behave in life. It has changed my perception of Yoga 100%. The most I liked was that the TTC brought me back to my basis. What surprised me the most was that Pinky was able to break down my walls and was able to show me how I was thinking and behaving in life. I will now take time to work on finding my basis, finding my truth, letting go and finding love within myself.

It was even more 'about me' than I thought. I was aware before, that Yoga is much more than Pranayama, Asana and Meditation, but I didn't fully realise how much it is about the journey within, about self-growth, learning about yourself and making changes according to that. After completing this training, I know that I will give more priority to a good routine and good habits, including positive affirmations to myself. Centre Lothlorien is a good place for such an experience, you will feel that it can be a home away from home.

This is not just a Teacher Training Course, but this is changing your life. I was surprised by the beauty of this place and the people, but also by the way of thinking 'of the soul'. I especially liked the personal attention and the time spent on the life struggles, rather than just learning theory or asanas. If you are really ready to look at yourself in such depth, then this is a really nice place to go to. There is so much more to Yoga than just Asanas and this makes me curious to learn even more. This is just the beginning!
