Fityoga wholeheartedly welcomes you to their 200-hour yoga teacher training in the magical Transylvanian wilderness, an integrative dynamic yoga teacher training in nature. The dynamic nature of their sequence is well compensated by meditation, Reiki, spiritual workshops, and philosophy talks. Special attention is paid to alignment and modifications, that makes this program available for both beginners and intermediate practitioners.
During this teacher training, you will be staying in a modern luxury family house at the edge of a tiny Transylvanian village in the woods, based on shared or single occupancy. Although FitYoga loves practicing yoga in nature, they also spend quite some time indoors as they use a projector to present their lectures visually. Please note that FitYoga reserves the right to change the venue if the owner of this venue changes their plans. In that case, they will book a similar venue.
Romania has the most special place in Fityoga's heart as it is the purest, wildest, and most romantic place they have ever been to. Practice yoga in a quiet setting surrounded by old trees and joyful streams, meditate by the sounds of birds, and eat fresh fruits and vegetables locally grown and harvested by the elderly peasants. As the location is in the middle of the woods, you can hike and refresh everyday after your lessons.
Practicing yoga in nature surrounded by trees and flowers, by the sound of crystal streams and the sound of birds, is truly magical. While the energies of Mother Earth will help your stability, your spirits will fly high by the breezes of fresh air. When the weather and the curriculum allows it, you will start the day in nature and later you will continue your philosophy lessons and alignment workshops indoors.

This yoga teacher training will be held in Transylvania, Romania. There is more to Transylvania than castles and vampire legends. Romania’s central region draws nature lovers with its spectacular alpine peaks and the largest brown bear population in Europe, while adrenaline junkies can swap the cobblestone alleys and fairy tale towers for snowmobiling on frozen lakes and cycling the hairpin mountain roads.
You will find hardwood forests, lush pastures, and wildflower meadows. Travelling around Transylvania, described as "the last truly medieval landscape in Europe," feels like you’ve gone back 100 years. Horse-drawn carts rumble along dirt roads, while shepherds tend their flocks and villagers make hay in the sunshine.
