GREECE YOGA TEACHER TRAINING OVERVIEW
Our 200-hour Vinyasa Flow and Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training is a foundational course designed for yogis with a variety of experience. It is ideal for serious yoga students who wish to deepen their existing practice, learn about all aspects of yoga, how to teach yoga to others, and for 200-hr yoga teachers wishing to expand their existing skills.
By the end of the course, you will obtain the skills, tools, and confidence to teach Vinyasa Flow Yoga. You will have many opportunities to teach yoga to your fellow students, giving and receiving constructive feedback. At Alpha Yoga School we strongly encourage each student to discover and develop her/his unique style and voice as a teacher. We do not create a monologue of how and what the teachers should say in their classes. Ready to practice Vinyasa Yoga with Joanna?
You will obtain a solid and strong self-practice based on Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is the foundational practice of modern-day yoga. Power Yoga, Rocket Yoga, Jivamukti and Vinyasa Flow Yoga are a few practices that stem from Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. Ashtanga works with a set series of postures that strengthen, align and purify the body from the inside out. Since you practice the same postures in the same order, you slowly memorize the sequence and you won't have to think about sequencing or creating your own classes. This ability will allow you to take your practice away from the studio and will enable you to practice on your own anytime, anywhere.
This training is recognized by Yoga Alliance USA and UK and focuses on four educational categories:
The Practice and Theory of Yoga. You will practice Ashtanga and Vinyasa Yoga in the morning and some afternoons you will have more relaxed classes such as restorative and yin yoga. You will learn how to teach Vinyasa classes and classes based on Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. You won't learn how to perform cacao or fire ceremony, you will not do Acro, chair yoga or prenatal yoga.
Yoga Philosophy & Ayurveda, aspects of yoga which are not learned in yoga studios.
Teaching Skills & Hands-on Adjustments. You will start teaching from day one and and practice hands-on adjustments on your fellow students. You will be receiving constant feedback from the teachers so that you can improve each and every time.
Functional Anatomy so that you can understand how your body and your students' bodies move in the postures
Upon successful completion, you can teach yoga anywhere in the world and may also register with Yoga Alliance USA and UK. This is optional and totally a personal choice.
We welcome “stiff” students, students suffering from an injury or other health challenges, and we encourage their attendance!
Pregnant women are welcome in the 2nd trimester.
If you love learning, have a body, and can breathe – this training is for you.
This teacher training is limited to 20 students per course to ensure you get the attention you deserve.
You will study with a team of three dedicated and experienced teachers.
Come as a practitioner, leave as a teacher.

"Best yoga teacher training!"
Martin and Joanna are excellent teachers and have put together the perfect curriculum for you to deepen your practice and becoming a yoga teacher! I loved the big emphasis on “Adjustments and Alignment”, which I am sure you won’t get most places, at least not in this amount or quality! Definitely the best classes of the course. The two-hour morning yoga classes were excellent. I loved that it changed between Ashtanga and Vinyasa and how much attention the two teachers paid to evolve your practice. I didn’t practice Ashtanga before I got there and wasn’t sure it was really for me. Martin turned that around! I don’t think I will be a “pure ashtangi”, but he really opened my eyes to the practice. I also loved the many workshops we did, to dig into some of the more challenging asanas or working on correct alignment in some of the poses we think we know and regard as easy, but potentially can injure us, because we are doing it wrong (e.g. Chaturanga). We started teaching each other during the first few days, which in my opinion is very important so that you can slowly begin to develop your skills as a teacher. The classes where we taught each other were excellent and we got a lot of usable information on how to teach and build a class. In general, I found that the theoretical classes really opened up to everything behind the physical yoga practice. The place was beautiful, the staff nice and the water amazing. I would with no doubt recommend this teacher training!

"Practice and all is coming!"
An amazing life-changing experience! I could not wish for a better TTC. I am so grateful for the opportunity to study with the best teachers. They are very well educated, passionate and so inspiring. They supported us and motivated us during the whole training because they wanted us to leave as confident teachers with great skills. The knowledge they provided about philosophy and anatomy was enough to understand the concepts of yoga and to encourage us to continue studying. The training was very intense, of course, but the schedule was well planned. When we felt really tired, we always had an easier day ahead of us. It was never boring because every subject had a different teacher. We learned about adjustment, alignment, vinyasa sequencing, pranayama techniques...we covered a lot! For most of us, this was the first real experience with ashtanga yoga and it really provided a great foundation for further studies. In one week we were able to practice in a Mysore class, without any previous experience. The location was amazing, with crystal clear sea, great food and nice, clean accommodation. Thank you for everything!
