The accommodation includes a big traditional villa and a townhouse. Both have easy access to the village swimming pool, cafe, bar, and shops. Food is prepared and served in the main villa where some classes are also held. The main yoga hall is an easy five-minute walk from both locations.


3 Week Certificated Residential Course

The course consists of three Modules of 150 Hours each. Plus 4 webinars per year. Each module consists of a 3-week intensive residential program of 150 hours of tuition, supervised practice and delicious vegetarian / vegan food. Set in a beautiful location the course provides a safe environment for this full immersion into Yoga and Shiatsu, practice and healing. Both Yoga and Shiatsu are profoundly transforming healing modalities which share physical, energetic, and psycho-spiritual dimensions to healing.

On a simple level, both of these healing arts seem to be working mostly on a purely physical level. However, through practice, the energetic, emotional and higher dimensions of the oriental meridian and chakra system can be tuned into and a deeper, truly holistic approach to self-development and healing can be explored.

The shiatsu practitioner course is based on the European Shiatsu Federation, ESF, core curriculum and includes all aspects of Zen shiatsu, TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), anatomy, physiology, and pathology. Students can continue their training with the school, or do this as a one-off. Students may also continue their yoga training and join a 200-hour yoga teacher training to become a Yoga Alliance-certified teacher.

The first module teaches all basic shiatsu techniques in prone, supine, and lateral positions, as well as a comprehensive introduction to the Chinese meridian system, all major acupoints, the basic notions of TCM, and the chakras. The morning yoga class will teach all fundamental asanas (yoga postures), which are profoundly therapeutic, as well as various meditation and breath control techniques. These classes are suitable for those just starting their yoga journey looking to deepen their practice and more advanced practitioners. Both the Yoga and Shiatsu modules are taught by professional staff, led by Gerry Rixen, the founder and director of SYM-Ltd. Graduates obtain the following certification with each module.

Module 1 (150 Hours)

Shiatsu Massage and Acupressure certification, accredited with SYM.

FAQs - Frequently Asked Questions

Upon completion of my Yoga teacher Training (200 or 500 level) where am I certified to teach?

SYM provides professional diploma courses fully certified and accredited by Yoga Alliance International (YAI). Upon graduation, you can teach anywhere in the world with YAI and SYM certification with the 200 or 500 hour certified level. SYM is also an associated member school of the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT) and The International Yoga Federation (IYF). Upon completion, graduates can join the YAI registry, as well as the IYF (and the IAYT with 500-hour certification).

What will I gain from the 200 Hour Yoga Teacher training course?

  • Understand Yoga and health at a much deeper level. Live the Yogic lifestyle, practicing and sharing with others. Be confident about starting a new and greatly rewarding career and path in life.
  • You will be able to teach classes from total beginner to intermediate level, open classes for all levels, classes for children, women only, the elderly, individual classes etc.
  • You will also be able to vary the classes from teaching dynamic Yoga to Yin Yoga, restorative yoga therapy to meditation and relaxation.
  • The art of Yoga takes a lifetime to Master, and we cannot imagine that teaching yoga can be learned in 200 Hours. However, we provide you with the right information to feel confident that you will teach safely without any injury, know the core asanas in detail and have great enjoyment and passion for your practice.

What will I gain from the 300 Hour Yoga Therapy course for 500 Hour Yoga Teacher Trainer level?

You will gain a deep understanding of Yoga, your own health and of evaluating your students' health. As a therapist, you will be able to design therapeutic Yoga classes and you will be able to assist your students with their own individual health problems.

As a 500-hour Master yoga teacher and yoga therapist, you will have much more scope and opportunities in your teaching career. You will be able to run many different types of yoga classes as well as individually tailored therapeutic programs and work with other health practitioners or in health centers. This course will clearly distinguish you from the average Yoga teacher and is of particular interest to anyone interested in yoga, health, healing, and bodywork

How should I prepare for my coming course with SYM?

Upon registration students will receive a welcome pack, where there is relevant info about how to prepare for the course including where to fly to and how to get here. We also highly recommend reading the introduction to BKS Iyengar’s “Illustrated Light on Yoga’, now a classic textbook on Yoga.

What style of Yoga Do we teach?

We teach Hatha yoga broadly based on the Sivananda and Iyengar Yoga Methods. We teach an energetic approach to Yoga, really feeling the postures and tapping into their unique healing potentials. We practice flow, but more emphasis is placed on steadiness in the posture with correct alignment of physical and energetic bodies and mindset within poses. This requires us to be slower in our practice, to truly feel and understand the tremendous therapeutic effects of the asana.

Why do students have a dress code?

We like to encourage students to wear positive, happy colors which facilitate learning and energy work. All colors are vibrations or frequencies of light. The therapeutic use of color, Colour Therapy and its association with the chakras will be discussed further during the course.

Yoga is a spiritual practice and as such there are certain ways we can dress to help our own practice and create more harmony and higher frequency vibrations in the Yoga hall. Colour and sound (mantras, chanting, music) have been used from time immemorial to uplift the spirit and are tools of yoga. For this reason, we encourage students to wear comfortable and plain white, yellow or blue bottoms and T-shirts.

What is the minimum age limit?

The minimum age limit is 18.

What is the group size?

We have a maximum of 15 participants. This ensures a friendly intimate course size and appropriate time with the teachers. The group size is normally between 8-15.

What language is the course facilitated in?

All courses are taught in English. The teachers all speak several European languages and are usually able to help students should any questions arise during the course. We offer French 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training in Montpellier, please contact SYM if you would like to do the training in French.

What if fail to complete or finish the course?

Students who fail to complete or finish the course are welcome to come back at a later date to finish their training. The extra time or module needed to complete the course is individually different but SYM tries as much as possible to keep any extra expenses as low as possible.

What is the accommodation offered?

We offer 3 types of accommodation. Single room, twin room (2 people shared) and dormitory (maximum 5 shared between 2 large interconnecting rooms).

SYM offers comfortable accommodation in a beautiful old village near the coast. A townhouse in a traditional Spanish village as well as an authentic Spanish Villa with swimming pool. The Yoga hall is 5 minutes walk from the villa and so is the beautiful big village swimming pool as well as several bars, restaurants, and shops including a small supermarket.
