If you are coming from outside of the Netherlands, you will need a place to stay. Rise & Shine Yoga has arranged it for you.

This yoga teacher training is a 225-hours program that has been approved by Yoga Alliance and consists of two modules. You will receive a 200 hours Yoga Alliance certificate if you do the full training and you can get a 100 hours Participation certificate if you only do one of the two modules. After participating in both modules, you are able to teach Hot classic or Bikram style classes, Hot flow classes, and Hot core fusion classes. In this training, you will find time to dive into some yoga philosophic lectures, meditations and explorations of values, and root teachings of ancient yoga lineage.

This whole training aims to create a space where you can all grow together and connect deeper with yourselves. You are going to learn how to create that sacred space for transformation, healing, and awakening for others. You will also learn the tools to enhance that space.

You will have time for teaching lab, or practice teaching hours, and a couple of work to support you in gaining experience even if this is your first teacher training journey. You will also have a session about marketing, and the business part of being a yoga teacher. These sessions will inspire you in finding your creative ways to build love, abundance, and joy with teaching yoga.

Training module 1: 11 Days 100-hours Hot yoga classic or Bikram style

This module starts on February 17, 2017 and ends on February 27, 2017. In this module, you will learn in-depth from experienced and inspiring teacher Erin Terziff, about the classical Hot yoga sequence. The original Hot yoga sequence contains 26 Hatha yoga poses and two breathing exercises that you will practice in a room heated between 38 to 40 degrees Celcius.

This series of static postures are designed to explore the body inside-out, touching every system and every cell. In combination with the heat, the sequence and anatomy of the class bring the students along a journey, which requires mindfulness, focus, and relaxation. The effects touch the body, mind, and spirit, which allows a glimpse into the zone, a place you are most clearly on your path and at your best, through presence, effort, and ease.

You will dedicate the first 100 hours of your training to this sequence, so you will be able to understand it deeper and transmit it in a great, safe, inspiring, and transformative way. Each day, you will practice it two times. So you really anchor it in your body, you learn the dialogue and you learn to use your words as well.

The hot classic curriculum topics include:

  • Teaching beyond the narrative: dissecting the literature, posture by posture, and identifying the meaning behind the words
  • Hot yoga sequencing: peaks and timing
  • Anatomy of Hot yoga
  • Philosophy of a teacher: applying science, mythology, yoga philosophy, life experience, and management techniques to bring out the best in each student
  • Karma yoga: understanding the impact of daily practice on daily living and positive outcomes with heart-centered, mindful, real world implementation of yoga
  • Observing bodies: adjustments for deeper understanding of the mind-body connection; modifications for meeting individual student needs while keeping them safe
  • Warm-ups or extensions: how to prepare for class and how to go beyond the beginners' practice

Training module 2: 12 Days 100-hours foundations of Hot flow and Hot core fusion sequence

This module starts on April 1, 2017 and ends on April 12, 2017. You will practice Hot Vinyasa flow in a room heated between 32 to 34 degrees Celcius. The essence of the class is the breath and movement connection. One breath is one movement that creates a continuous flow such as the flow of movement, flow of breath, and flow of energy. Besides energizing the body and heart, as well as calming or inspiring the mind, the flow practices are also increasing your fluid nature. It helps you to release blockages and create openings as well as fresh blood and energy flows in the body and in your life. In this class, you will also learn a Hot core fushion sequence that is created by Kata van Doesselaar based on the classic Hot poses, some flow elements, and special core practices. It is incredibly empowering and energizing class that is usually very popular as we all need more core strength. You will learn a unique sequence to cultivate core strength that is supporting a healthy spine and which, you need for all yoga practices and life in general; specially, if you are working a lot in an office.

In this module, you will have two Hot flow practices a day. The morning practice is an activating, invigorating solar class. You will have a slow, relaxing flow in the evening or lunar class, as in connection to the sun and the moon, learning to create the balance between yang and yin, which are the two polarities that you carry.

You will learn from an experienced teacher trainer, Kata van Doesselaar, the basics of a Hot Vinyasa flow practice, which includes:

  • Elements of flow such as asanas, sun salutations, sun salutation variations, breathing practices, and relaxation
  • Anatomy of the movement, physical, and energetical alignment principles
  • Learning how to sequence using the principles of Vinyasa Krama, a step by step progressing approach, using the map of the body and working with the family of hip-openers, heart-openers, shoulder-openers, core strength developers, inversions
  • Learning to feel and sense your students and your group; then, communicate with them according to the now moment and learn how to adjust as well as to assist in their experiences, if needed
  • Learning how to modify poses to specific needs of each of your students and how to avoid injuries including support for their healing
  • Learning how to work with intentions that has a higher purpose on your mat and in your life
  • Learning how to take your yoga off the mat and how to transmit the transformative, healing power of yoga to your students
  • You will receive support from Rise & Shine Yoga in finding your authentic voice, the teacher in you, the wisdom that you have to share to the world, and your unique gift
  • You will learn how to teach hot core fusion classes and how to give modifications of the sequence according to your students’ needs
  • You will learn how to follow your intuition and create your own sequence that you can use for your own practice and for your students
  • You will learn how to choose the right words, cues, and enthusiastic message to empower and encourage your students
  • You will practice the hot core fusion class every day twice in the last part of your training
  • On the last week, you get the chance to memorize all the poses, the important instructions, and find your ways to make it yours

    "What a wonderful yin teacher training. Huge transformation, deepening of my understanding and learning from the best teachers! We became a beautiful family at the end, so much love and care has been shared. Amazing great organic vegan meals, and special care of our organizers."

    "And a plus of the teacher training, so much has been shared about how to create sequences, and that is usually never explained. We gained so much, i feel confident to start o teach Yin yoga in my own studio, and i feel joy sharing the healing power of yin yoga."

    "Last week i joined the ibiza retreat and after a week in my busy life i still feel the energy that i got from the retreat and the island. Any body and everybody will benefit from doing meditation in the sun, feeling your feet in the sand and experience the sweat dripping on your yoga mat during a hot yoga session. Although i am at novice yoga level, i enjoyed this experience a lot! Both kata and erno were really doing their absolute best to organize a trip that suits everybody (glutenfree and diary free food, trip to a fish restauarant, mindblowing sunsets etc)."

    "I can really recommend this trip to anyone who want to enjoy the sun, improve their yoga postures, get more in balance or simply to feel alive again"

    "I wanted to take a moment and allow myself to express my gratitude towards the both of you for not only teaching me the inside-out of this lovely yin and a bit of yan practice, but, to be those anchor who help me to ground inside myself. Magic had happened inside of me and baby steps will soon be steady and strong. I could find the most wonderful combination of words to express how I feel, however, a deep Thank you - without the ocean of details - will be as much explicit. See you soon and around"

    "It was so energizing! I felt with high energy that I couldn't sleep till 2:00 am! I was really happy until I got asleep. The next day I felt energized, so I'm really looking forward to continue with Bikram yoga. I really enjoyed the yoga session a lot. Thanks for being so professional with the class, you really got me concentrated into my breathing, my moves, and I start listening to my body. See you soon yogi."

    "I had a wonderful experience on this retreat. I arrived quite stressed and tired. I went home energised and very relaxed. Kata is an excellent yoga teacher and was very intuitive to the problems I was having in the class. She offered a variety of yoga styles, which made the retreat more diverse. I was grateful that she introduced me to Yin yoga, which I felt suited me quite well, therefore proving Kata's great intuition.Her partner Erno offered peaceful meditation sessions in the evening which further added to the retreat experience and blended well with the experience. I look forward to attending another retreat with these guys soon."

    "I had never been on a yoga retreat before so was not sure what to expect but the soulbreath hot yoga retreat was wonderful from beginning to end. The venue was stunning with great facilities, good bed, and wonderful food. The yoga platform on the top of the hill overlooking the valley is the most beautiful spot to practice and the pool, sauna and steam room provided so great relief after the intensive yoga.Kata and Ernos classes were amazing. Great instruction with a real understanding of each of the participants needs. With their wonderful guidance, I was able to further my practice but also explore new postures and even try other types of yoga. The highlight of the retreat for me was the candlelight hot yoga! what a wonderful experience. I would wholeheartedly recommend the retreat to anybody no matter what level of practice they have. The perfect blend of Yoga and Relaxation. Thank you."

    "Thank you Kata, for having started to offer teacher trainings. I think I found the person that gave me exactly what I was looking for! It is during your training that I first ever experienced how it is to accept myself fully as I am, accept my limitations, my body's limitations, and not feel bad about that.I feel such a deep gratitude, the whole experience feel like a homecoming to me. The space that you created was so non-judgmental, and the yin yoga is teaching us the acceptance as well, so I could finally let go of my concerns of me not being good / flexible / young / slim enough. Thank you for this wonderful training!"

    "I thought that this Yin yoga teacher training is going to be like all the other yoga trainings, we learn some new asanas, alignment, etc. but this goes way beyond that! These are just the first three days that we experienced together, but it goes so deep, it brings so many realizations, I am learning so much about who I am, and how I am, and it really feels like a psychological therapy, very enriching and empowering."
