Program

Our pre-distance learning gives you a basis to begin your training with. Yoga Alliance refers to these classes as “Non-Contact Hours”. It is a compulsory part of the course and must be completed before your course commences. This will help you to avoid stress and will prepare you for the study.

It is not important how strong or flexible you are, yoga is much more than just asanas, they are a tool to control your mind. The discipline and mind work is the difficult part It is very important that you understand that yoga is a nonstop development and learning process, the teacher training course is just a door Gayatri Yoga is opening to deepen this knowledge.

Gayatri Yoga is a small and familiar school with limited space for six to eight trainees per teacher training. Small groups ensure a maximum support on your way as a yoga teacher. The course includes many background information and lots of practice, not just asanas. It will simply give you the full range of asana practice and you will be able to give your teachings your own personality and variety.

It will help you to adjust the asanas to the needs of your students with confidence and knowledge. They are always there for their students and it is the quality, not the quantity of the trainees which make their teacher training special.

Gayatri Yoga's teacher training course includes full 200-hour teachings with a yoga teacher by your side, these classes are called contact hours. Self-study classes include the preparations for your own lessons as a teacher and also homework, which are additional non-contact hours. This means that you will come on around 250 hours in your teacher training course.

Make a commitment before you come that you will not be judgmental or critical, either of yourself, anyone, or anything. Knowledge is within you and this course is just a door for you to learn and experience. The teachers can stimulate, motivate, and inspire you but you also have to do the work.

Location

Tenerife

Tenerife is of volcanic origin and the largest of the seven Canary Islands. It is located around 300 kilometers from the African coast and about 1,300 kilometers from the Spanish mainland. It has an area of 2,034 square kilometers with the gigantic Pico del Teide rising up in the center to 3,718 meters, making it the highest point of Spain.

Tenerife is known throughout the world as the island of eternal spring. The traditional architecture of the Canary Islands takes its inspiration mainly from the traditional architecture of Andalusia and Portugal although it also has a strong personality of its own.

Tejina

The small resort Tejina lies on the rocky coast in the northeast of Tenerife. It is surrounded by the foothills of the Anaga Mountains. The village and the surroundings are very rural and idyllic. The climate is extremely pleasant as temperatures do not sink below 17 degrees Celsius, even in winter.

A harvest festival is an important event and the people of Tejina have a rather unusual way to celebrate it. The festival is called ''The Hearts of Tejina'' and is held in August. Hearts are decorated with flowers, fruit, and cakes, and each heart is around 12 meters tall and weighs about 1,000 kilograms.

When the three main neighborhoods in the town bring out the hearts that they have been working on for a month, an entertaining ritual begins, in which each neighborhood mocks the others' hearts. The festivity dates back over a hundred years.
