What's in it for you?

The choice to join a yoga teacher training is a big decision. Whether you join us to deepen your practice, and/or start or deepen your career as a yoga teacher, we will guide, support and challenge you in this journey.

Our mission is to provide you powerful tools to build a solid foundation as a teacher and help you to master the fundamental skills to safely teach, empower and inspire others while honouring your individual voice and style.

It is our intention to develop teachers of the highest calibre and to trigger transformation both on and off the mat. This training will stretch your comfort zones, challenge insecurities, and inspire self-esteem & self-respect both as a teacher and as an individual.

You will work hard, deepen your practice, and explore your life’s purpose. You will gain the tools to become a knowledgeable and effective yoga teacher or deepen your personal practice.

Through various practices, lectures, discussions, teaching your peers, assisting and adjusting, reading, and observing, you will gain the necessary tools. And by further developing your personal practice, you become a knowledgeable and effective yoga teacher, and spark positive transformation in your life.

What style of yoga?

The Equal 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training is a vinyasa yoga based program, however, the tools gained will be transferable to many styles of yoga, including the Hot Power Yoga we teach at Equal.
Vinyasa Flow is a style of yoga characterized by linking movement and breath to attain balance in the mind and body. Vinyasa aligns a sequence of poses together with the breath to achieve a continuous flow. Vinyasa yoga classes can be paced moderately to vigorously depending on the level of the class.

FAQ

Is our program right for you?

Our 200-hour training does much more than deepen your yoga practice and help you develop as a teacher; it is a program intended to inspire transformation in your life. Through the study of asana, mindfulness, lifestyle philosophy, positive psychology, anatomy and beyond, watch the changes unfold on and off your mat!
This program is for any level of student. Our yoga style of focus is that of vinyasa, however, the tools gained will be transferable to many styles of yoga.  You will feel at home at Equal Yoga. You will meet and connect with some genuinely amazing people, and make life-long friendships.

What we ask from you:

We require our students to have a consistent, dedicated yoga practice and a strong desire to learn and explore the modern teachings of yoga. We expect you can manage a 1.5 hour vigorous vinyasa yoga based practice. We want to make sure that trainees have a basic foundation in the primary yoga postures before learning how to teach. As the Teachers Training will be taught in English, you have a good understanding of the English language. You are welcome to write homework and exams in Dutch.

The Equal Teacher Training is designed as an intensive course; it is a great way to immerse yourself within the span of a 4 months period. This helps to enrich a transformational experience for your body and mind. This also means that we ask you to work hard and be dedicated in these months to explore and create awareness of who you are. Committing yourself to this course is an intense experience with self-study, regular yoga practice, will help to get you out of your comfort zone and can be highly transformative.

How much time should I expect to spend on 200-hour homework?

Homework activities will include the following to help to you digest and explore yoga from all sides. Expect between 5-8 hours a week (reading, writing, practice teaching). The homework is designed to support the material covered in class and help you integrate what is presented into your own practice and teaching. But most importantly, we want you to have fun…

Can you teach yoga without a Yoga Alliance certification?

Yes, absolutely! The benefits of joining a teacher training program (with or without a Yoga Alliance registration) are gaining proficiency and an awareness how to teach. Completing a yoga teacher program builds integrity and trust with those you are teaching and you increase your confidence in front of classes.

Being Yoga Alliance certified is not a legal requirement for teaching yoga. Currently, there are no legal certification requirements to be a yoga teacher. 

What if in-person training sessions are cancelled due to Covid-19 regulations?

Your health is always the most important to us, which is why we assess each situation separately. In the event of a lockdown or travel ban, due to the ever-changing situation and uncertainty caused COVID-19, the Equal Teacher Training will be moved to continue online for those parts of the training that we feel are suitable to be taught online. E.g. lectures on philosophy, history of yoga. Other topics that require in-person teachings like learning how to teach and asana exploration will be postponed till after the ban. By continuing (partly) online, we hope to serve you as a participant while allowing our community to continue to create and share beautiful teachings together.

Please bear with us as we take this one situation at a time so we can make the best, informed decisions and take care of everybody involved. We’ll continue to monitor and always provide a safe and healthy environment for our teachers and students
