First thing first...
Don’t get confused by the name ‘Yoga Teacher Training’. This course is not only designed for yoga teachers, nor is it designed only for those who want to become yoga teachers.
If you don't investigate and instead live believing yoga teacher training is something not for you, it will cost you this...
You won't learn how to practice yoga on your own, anytime, anywhere, correctly, and safely.
You won't obtain the teaching skills and confidence that could set you apart as a yoga teacher.
You won't get far beyond physical in your yoga practice.
And mainly, you will never know how easily yoga could have become part of your daily life and how it could have changed it.
You won't discover the deeper aspects of yoga and its philosophy.

Uncover 9 Things You Must Know BEFORE
Booking A Yoga Teacher Training Course...
...that meets your needs and doesn't waste your time and money
When you decide you can expect to...
Practice Without Limitations
With the correct guidance you will be amazed at what your body is capable of.
Redefine what you thought possible.
Teach With Sophistication
Most teachers know what to teach.
That part is easy.
You will learn how to teach it right and why to teach it that way.
That takes skill.
It sounds cliche but it is true.
Yoga will improve your life and those you share it with.
Don’t you want a change? Then change.
Finding a yoga school is easy...
Selecting the right yoga school is the challenge.
If you feel overwhelmed about which yoga school and yoga style you should choose for your foundational or advanced yoga course, you are not the only one. Most everyone is.
Traditional schools can leave you full of knowledge but lacking the teaching skills to share it.
Modern training programs can teach you advanced postures but without the traditional foundation which underpins them.
Finding a school that does both, and exceptionally well, that is rare.
At Alpha Yoga School we offer..
A yoga training that balances traditional wisdom with modern science.
A yoga course that teaches you what to teach, how to teach, and why to teach it.
A training where theory meets practice.
A yoga program where ancient wisdom is utilized to improve your modern lifestyle.
Are you ready?This is what you do...
Choose your course. Fill the application form.
Tell us more about your yoga experience, and ask questions about the yoga course.
We will send you detailed information about the course you selected.
This will include our “Covid-19 money-back guarantee” and access to online classes so you can meet and practice with us before you decide.
It is a big decision. Why not jump on a Zoom call with us.
No fee. No obligation. Just to talk through any questions you may have.
You can schedule it here.
Upon receiving your deposit, you're in!
The good news?
The hardest part is out of the way.
The great news?
Should anything happen, your deposit is refundable or transferable.
You can now breathe a sigh of relief.
Let's be Blunt...
If you wait for everything to fall into place you may be waiting a lifetime. Transformation requires change and change requires action.
Ask yourself. If you pass on this opportunity, postpone the decision, and do nothing, in a year from today, will you have a solid yoga practice, feel fit and confident, teach your clients, friends, and family a healthy lifestyle? And will you hear praise for how much this yoga training had changed you?
Probably NOT. You will still wish it and want it but you won't have any of it.
Face it. Most of what you need is action, instruction, and encouragement.
The universe likes speed. Don't delay. Don't second guess. When the opportunity is there, when the impulse is there, when the intuitive nudge is there, ACT! That's your job.
...so, why Alpha Yoga School?
What makes us the right choice for you?
We learned the hard way so that you can learn the smart way in one training.
Since 2014 we have spent over 3,000 hours training hundreds of Yoga teachers. Although that number is impressive, it is not the quantity which you should be impressed by. It is the quality of our students. This is what we are most proud of.
Years ago we made the decision to stop teaching classes in yoga studios and dedicate all of our efforts to creating the most comprehensive teacher training possible. To become specialists. To teach the teachers. And that is exactly what we have done.
We have intentionally taught and studied Yoga in India, the USA, and Europe. Why? So we can teach you the Ancient lineage of Ashtanga and the modern style of Vinyasa with great emphasis on balancing both. Not many schools quite nailed this.
As well as devising the best curriculums, we are also obsessed with transformation. We love to witness the changes in our students' practice and in their mindset. Seeing our graduates teach what they love and having their students love what they teach.
Our new teachers (200-hr YTT) begin their careers with confidence that only competence and skill can provide. Our advanced teachers (300-hr YTT) leave with a new level of sophistication. Through honing their craft and refining their technique they leave with clarity and certainty of their value as yoga teachers.

And here are your options...
You may have wondered...
How do I choose the right yoga course?
Some yoga teacher training programs prevent yoga enthusiasts from growing in their yoga practice and from fulfilling their yoga teacher ambitions and dreams.
Then what do you need to check for to be confident that the training will meet your expectations before you commit all the time and money?
First, see how accessible the teachers are. Call them. Try to schedule a zoom call with them. Ask questions. If they are hard to reach during the time of selling, you can't expect much of a difference once you're sold.
For more tips on how to choose a yoga teacher training, go here.
In Alpha Yoga School we talk face to face with all of our students.
Most importantly, we welcome them to speak to our previous students who completed our training.
Second, contact students who studied with the school or check out the school's testimonials. Let’s be honest, a good recommendation is priceless. If you were looking for yoga teacher training and someone you asked suggested Alpha Yoga School, there would be no need for you to read this.
Our graduates do the talking for us. If you love our graduates, you will love our training.
Real students, real experience...
"I simply couldn’t have hoped for a better yoga teacher training".
The teaching, the people, the food, the glorious view we would get every morning as we practiced yoga, all of it was just divine. I came primarily because I wanted to expand my yoga practice and gain the tools necessary to teach, but also because I really needed to escape the stress and horror of the past few months. What came up time and time again was how soothing this experience had been for all of us. The teacher training gave us all an opportunity to slow down and find our inner strength."
- Chiara Maurino from England
Don't even think about booking a yoga course before reading this first...
Did you know that many yoga schools do it wrong?
There, we said it. They don't teach their students...well, actually, how to teach.
Yep, it actually happened to us! Do you want to know how that is even possible?
You shouldn't invest in a yoga school only interested in graduating students.
At Alpha Yoga School, our mission is to change lives through yoga. To help students to become dedicated yoga practitioners and exceptional yoga teachers.
Since NOW may be the only time you can actually do it, you should get this right.
The voice in your head...sounds familiar?
Ok. So here it is. The biggest reason why people don't go through yoga teacher training is that they believe that they don't have what it takes.
"My practice is not good enough to be a Yoga Teacher". Wrong.
An advanced yoga practitioner doesn’t always make a great yoga teacher. Teaching Yoga is a different skill than practicing Yoga.
Plus, taking your practice to a new level doesn’t always mean adding crazy postures. It means practicing with more awareness in your body and control over your breath. It means understanding how your body moves and how it shouldn’t.
Your current practice is not the measure of whether to teach or not.
"I need to be young, thin, and flexible". No!
The purpose of Yoga Teacher Training is that you’ll realize that the physical practice can be tailored to any person. Yoga is for everybody and every BODY.
Your body will change as you practice but that should not be the motivation for your yoga practice. What you aim for is a newfound appreciation of how your body feels and what are capable of NOW.
Different body types may find different yoga poses more accessible, which is true. However, there are always modifications and preparation poses even for the most advanced asanas and we will show them to you.
If you can breathe, you can do yoga!
"People will think I’m a phony. That I don't have what it takes to be a teacher." Realy?
So, how do you know that you are ready? The simple answer is, you never do, not until you try.
Every journey must start somewhere. Things worth learning take time.
You will be offered the tools, safe space, and opportunities to practice. You will receive detailed feedback on how to improve. All you need to do is teach, make mistakes, learn, adapt, repeat.
The plan is to take you from a casual student to an advanced practitioner. From a good teacher to an exceptional one.
We all know teachers who put on a “Yoga voice”. We help you to find YOUR voice.
"There are already so many yoga teachers out there", or "someone is already teaching the niche that I want to teach." Let us shout this to you. IT DOESN’T MATTER! Why?
There are so many yoga teachers out there already but there is only one you. No other human has your skills, your life experience, or your perspective. Therefore, there is no teacher out there like you.
Because certain people who would NEVER try one of "their" classes will, for some reason or another, be compelled to take your class.
For every teacher, there's a student.
There is NO ONE out there with the same message or gifts to share as you do. You are unique and you can bring to the table what no one else can.
"There’s so much to learn! All I know about is the Yoga poses".
Every journey must start somewhere.
It is impossible to learn everything that there is to know about Yoga in one training (or one lifetime for that matter).
However, we guarantee you know even more than you think you do. Consciously or not, you are already shaping the teacher you are destined to become. You know the qualities you like in a teacher and those you don’t.
We promise to condense absolutely everything that we have learned over the years to provide you with the most comprehensive Ashtanga and Vinyasa yoga training we possibly can.
All our cards are on the table.
This is our "Customers' Clarity Agreement"...
Let's be absolutely CLEAR about what you can expect from investing in this yoga teacher training.
At Alpha Yoga School, certificates are not given, they are earned
This training will elevate your practice to a new level and make it independent. You will eradicate bad habits in your practice and amend misalignments. Any misunderstandings about the pose; its benefits, its variations, and its risks will be resolved.
You will dive deep into TWO of the most established and most frequently practiced styles of Yoga in today’s industry. Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and Vinyasa Yoga (often referred to as Flow Yoga). Vinyasa yoga derives from Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga.
Practice is what elevates a good teacher to a great one.
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga empowers you with the independence of self-practice. It offers all the benefits of yoga (and more!) in an effective and efficient format. Meaning you can practice anytime, anywhere, without relying on (and paying for) a teacher to guide you. Through repetition of this fixed sequence, you build phenomenal strength and discipline, and your practice transforms at an astonishing rate
Aside from being the foundational practice of modern-day yoga (Power Yoga, Vinyasa Flow, Jivamukti, and Rocket), the set series of postures open, align, strengthen, and purify the body. The movements are done while utilizing deep breathing practice and with a set gazing point. So not only does the practice keep you in amazing shape but these additional aspects allow the practitioner to experience meditation in motion.
It is for this reason, we use Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga as the groundwork for our 200-hour YTTC’s.
Outside of the set series, a natural inquiry and exploration into creating your own “vinyasas” arises.
Vinyasa is the coordination of the breath with the movements of the body. It is the fluid space in between the poses. Whilst Vinyasa can also be dynamic, it doesn’t have to be. It is the perfect style to express your creativity. Vinyasa Flow derives from Ashtanga and builds upon its structure while allowing you to add your creativity, temperament, self-expression, and flavor.
This combination is deliberately chosen to accelerate your own practice and maximize career opportunities. The 200-hr yoga teacher training prepares you to teach your own Vinyasa flow yoga classes. At the end of the training, you will also know how to teach the Ashtanga Primary Series.
On our 300-hr Advanced Vinyasa Yoga Teacher training, you will dive deeper to create and teach students your own master Vinyasa flows, offer alignment advice, and provide hands-on adjustments, all of it correctly, safely, and appropriately.
We hope you realize that...
Yoga is a lifelong journey.
You cannot learn all there is about Yoga in a single yoga teacher training. Or ever.
You will not learn specialty Yoga such as Pre- or Post-natal, Acro Yoga, Chair Yoga, Cacao or Fire ceremonies, etc. Why? Because you have time in the future to develop your niche. Establishing a strong foundation, and understanding of functional alignment and methods of teaching comes first.
We are not your Gurus and we will never claim to be. We will not tell you what to teach. Because what you teach is up to you. We will teach you how to teach, to the best of your ability. You will not just rehearse and repeat instructions. You will understand the concepts which underline them so that you can develop your own voice as a yoga instructor.
After the course, you do not HAVE to teach. However, we ask you this, if you felt so confident, and capable to teach, would you still be sure to say that you don't want to teach?
Our 3-step process has proven to create exceptional results...
Even before the course has begun you will have contact with the lead teachers. You will have access to course content suggested pre-reading, and selected recorded video content to prepare your mind and body for the 200-hour or 300-hour yoga teacher training.
Because you have already prepared your body and mind, your entry point into the training is higher than at other yoga schools. All our on-location courses combine live classes and lectures. This provides you with the necessary teacher and peer interaction during the on-location yoga teacher training.
You will be offered access to our 200-hour ONLINE yoga teacher training video content and digital resources which you can revisit at any time after the course ends. This gives you the opportunity to revisit the information in your own time. This creates a more versatile and flexible learning experience, acknowledging each student's learning style and personal schedules.
We realize that the end of the training is just the beginning of your yoga journey. For this reason, we invite you to join our graduate cohort. An online group where new and experienced yoga teachers discuss and contemplate things relevant to their practice and their teaching.
Location, location, location...
We recognise the temptation to travel to Bali or India. We appreciate that, right now at least, the location seems like the most important. We promise you, it’s not.
Arguably, the most important factor to consider is the teachers. And whether or not you resonate with the course content. Many schools offer one or the other; a great location or great teachers. Very few offer both.
Training in India can be amazing. But it can also be really disappointing. Even the most exotic locations cannot make up for poorly taught courses.
Your time on the course will sometimes be physically tiring, and mentally challenging. By contrast, your teachers should be experienced, inspiring, and supportive.
At Alpha Yoga School we have a team of exceptional teachers who just so happen to conduct training programs in some of the most beautiful and romantic locations in the East and the West.
Make sure to research the teachers on the course. Have a look at our teachers here. And be wary of the common myth that the best yoga teachers are Indian or teach yoga in India.
In fact, even those attending yoga instructor training in India and Bali are usually trained by European teachers.
Most, if not all, reputable teachers that specialize in training students to become yoga instructors in Europe have spent a large amount of their yoga training in India, and often teach in both western and the eastern hemisphere. Alpha Yoga School organizes yoga teacher training courses in India every year as well.
Long story short…you are not compromising at all on the experience and level of your teachers by choosing to do your yoga instructor training in Europe.
You authentically stand out as a yoga teacher with a mission.
Your teaching represents you and your brand and attracts students drawn to your yoga knowledge.
You teach with authenticity and credibility. You teach what you love and your students love what you teach. You see (and hear) the difference you are making in your students' lives.
You feel confident with your yoga self-practice. There is value in attending classes in a yoga studio. However, real breakthroughs happen in self-practice. Now you know how to practice safely and correctly at home.
