Since 2016 Stefan has been facilitating 200hr teacher trainings globally, but now focuses on a limited number of high quality, low capacity offerings. Stefan has graduated over 100 students, many enjoy flourishing yoga careers.
German born Jane is a bundle of light and energy. She is both the brains and heart of the operation, making sure everything goes smoothly and keeping everyone both entertained and happy. She also has a real passion for yoga, and has studied in Germany, Indonesia and completed intensives in India with some seriously respected teachers. You'll love her as much as we do we promise.
Clare has a passion for studying and sharing yoga, seeing the practice as a space for self exploration and observation. She strongly believes in the transformational nature of the yoga journey for all practitioners. For Clare, yoga is a beautiful practice which is diverse and adaptable, and able to embrace students from all walks of life. From nurturing a sense of wellbeing and connection to realigning and conditioning the physical body, the practice can be adapted for the needs of each unique practitioner.

"An All-Around Incredible Experience"
Stefan and his team live their contagious passion and enthusiasm for yoga on and off the mat. Their teaching methods are both entertaining and intellectual. The course will prepare you to confidently lead a modern Vinyasa class with a focus on intentional, mindful movements and respect for anatomical integrity. I loved how we dove right into teaching on the very first day of class, making it easy to shake off the nerves and bond quickly with everyone in the group. It was so impressive to see how far everyone came since that first day, and it wouldn't have been possible without the compassionate support and attention to each individual's journey from Stefan and his team. Besides the amazing yoga, meditation, and breath work that was provided, the lush and tropical Southern coast of Sri Lanka proved to be the perfect environment for a Yoga Teacher Training - making it easy to drop into the present moment and appreciate the simple things in life. Plus the team at GreenPeace Inn made the BEST vegan food and deserts I've ever had. I'd repeat this experience over and over again if I could and will be recommending it to anyone interested in growing their own practice or gaining the skills and knowledge needed to go out and teach.

"Book this course, it is brilliant in so many ways"
This course has been so well developed, the days are well planned and the instructors really really experienced, fun and wise. All of which, makes for a brilliant training.
You will not be disappointed, Stephan has really put his heart into this course, he will teach you all you need to know and give you the right tools, if going off to do full time yoga teaching is your thing. Even if not, these three weeks together with him will push you physically and mentally but in such a positive way.
Take this time for yourself to do this, you'll treasure it forever.
The place was stunning too, lovely pool, great food and drinks, the breakfast included is delicious. And the staff very helpful and caring.
My bed was heaven, which is good as you sleep like a light after a full day of training!

"A magical experience backed by excellent training "
This training has truly been one of the most special things I have done in my life. Stefan is an excellent teacher and mentor who coached us in all things asana, mediation, philosophy and communication skills and more, he has created a course with the perfect blend between discipline in our practice and also providing a lot of fun! The group had such a great bond and I have made friends for life in our YTT family! I am so excited to develop as a yoga teacher and I thank Stefan and Sara so much for their coaching and encouragement as I explore this new avenue in my life. The location and surroundings are also really beautiful and only add to the magic! Truly wonderful experience which I will keep it with me always including my corrected posture change which has transformed not only my height but also some things deep within me! 10/10

"A great experience!"
I am very happy and thankful for my 200 ytt with Stefan and his team. He is a skilled teacher with a lot of enthusiasm and passion for what he is doing. The course had a great balance between physical practice, lectures/workshops and practice teaching. I learned a lot in these three weeks! I was also surrounded by great vibes and beautiful people. I definitely recommend this training if you are interested in becoming a yoga teacher ?

Das Teacher Training war absolut das richtige um eine fundierte Basis für alle angehenden Yogalehrer aufzubauen, oder einfach um die eigene Yogapraxis zu verfeinern! Während des straffen aber gut angestimmten Yoga Programms hatte das Training immer eine angenehme Leichtigkeit. In diesen drei wundervollen Wochen konnte ich super gute Freundschaften knüpfen, das hatte ich niemals erwartet ! Die Ausbildung ist aufjedenfall weiterzuempfehlen :)
Ganz viel Liebe für alle und riesengroßes Kompliment an Stefan, Sara und Jane!

"a lifechanging experience"
Stefan and Sara are the perfect team for this training and they managed to communicate their profound Yoga knowledge in a simple and easy way. It has been three intense weeks fully packed with Yoga. Perfect to create new habits and better postures. Always thinking about our safety, Stefan managed to respond to every of his students and needs indiviually. I highly recommend this course to everyone who wants to become a Yoga teacher or just improve his/her Yoga skills.

Stefan und Sara haben das YTT zu einer unglaublichen Zeit für alle Teilnehmer werden lassen. Mit dem Fokus auf Modern alignment und der Prävention von Verletzungen habe ich für mich und zukünftige Schüler viel Wissen erworben. Die Unterkunft und das enthaltene Frühstück hätten nicht besser sein können. In der freien Zeit am Mittag und am Abend sowie Sonntags war genug Zeit um den Ort und die Umgebung zu erkunden.

from United States,
This was an incredible experience with a passionate teacher! Stefan is a great teacher, who is very knowledgeable about anatomy and business practices. On his teacher training you will have the opportunity to deepen your practice and explore the principles of mindfulness. I gained so much from this teacher training and was able to learn so much about myself. This experience offers you time to reflect and grow, as well as study the science of yoga. This is truly a life changing experience and I can not recommend Stefan's trainings enough!! The entire experience of being in Lombok is also incredible. The island is beautiful, with great accommodations and healthy food choices available. Go for it! You will thank yourself! This is an incredible opportunity and the best experience you will find!
