500-hours

Evolution begins now. The 500-Hour Sattva Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) is for those who are willing to fully immerse themselves into the teachings of Yoga. This is for anyone who wants to transform their whole existence. Learn from a living Himalayan Master. These teachings are straight from the source from internationally respected Sattva Yoga Academy. Join the gold standard of Yoga Teacher Trainings.

In this training, students have the option to take two full trainings back-to-back – the 200-Hour and 300-Hour trainings. There is a short break in between the courses to allow the students to experience, teach and have time for self-study and practice. The break is very relevant and important to allow the students to ground the knowledge shared in 200-Hour YTT and prepare themselves for the 300-Hour YTT.

During these times of a huge shift in how humanity functions, Yoga as a personal practice is bringing humans to their true essence and wholeness, prepared to be fully adaptable. Sattva Yoga Academy teachers and graduates spread all over the globe are community leaders in their locations, leading from love and compassion in their respective fields.
