Saturdays are your days off. You will be engaged in doing Karma yoga voluntarily in your free time during the teacher training to learn and practice yoga holistically.

Day one is dedicated to you settling in to the village and attending the opening ceremony in the late afternoon/evening, followed by dinner. You are therefore suggested to arrive at the village at the latest by 2 p.m. on day one to not miss out.

The closing ceremony will be on the third from the last day of your course, followed by a free day before your departure on the last day. Check-out time is 11 a.m., but you may join in the yoga holiday activities once your course has finished, until your departure, as desired.

A high degree of self-motivation is required for all aspects of the course. Basic knowledge of yoga postures and philosophy is helpful. A sincere desire to learn and an open mind to the teachings of yoga is required. Self-discipline is required during the course as it is physically, mentally, and spiritually demanding; but also highly rewarding!

You are encouraged to apply for the course when you are fully ready on a holistic level and committed to meeting the challenges of the course and accepting the joys with an open heart. These are important attributes that will add to your learning experience during the course and also to the learning experience of your fellow students.

This course will be taught in English, therefore it is recommended that you are proficient in the language. To ensure the success of the program, participants are required to attend all spiritual activities, meditation sessions, lectures, and asana classes.
