Hatha-Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training France

This listing has one of the 10 most popular offers available in France

Namaste! We see the light in you. You are looking at a spiritually-focused yoga teacher training in a very quiet countryside location away from the noise, distraction, the busyness and stress of towns and the city. There will be lots of pranayama and meditation practice along with asana and the key focus on yoga philosophy. This is a 22-day 200hr Yoga Teacher Training course that will give you the possibility to register to Yoga Alliance. The location is in a family-run property in rural France, a 17th-century manor house with views of rolling hills, 6 acres of private grounds, a little wood at the edge of the property that leads to a lake reservoir.

Important notice: In the spirit of Santosha, practicing contentment and detachment, please note that our rooms and halls not heated or air-conditioned and food served is plain and simple.

There are two lounge areas for relaxation and quiet time to study or read when not outdoors enjoying the grounds or yoga deck. We have two spaces dedicated to yoga - an indoor hall and an outdoor deck for long sunny French summer days with rooms decorated in French vintage style and 6 acres of private land and garden.


Back to simple living

At the Coudures retreat, we encourage our students to embrace simple living and challenge themselves to let go of their attachments to city comforts. In the spirit of santosha- the practice of contentment and detachment, our rooms and halls are not heated or air-conditioned and food served is plain and simple (served 3 times daily).

it is our wish that students take advantage of the opportunity to be in these quiet peaceful, simple surroundings to retreat, discover the inner self and deepen their spiritual practice which to us, what yoga is primarily about.

The location is rural France which is very tranquil and peaceful, away from towns and noise. If you wish to do some touristic activities and see some attractions, please plan these before or after the training.

The 200 hours will be divided into 4 learning according to the Yoga Alliance core curriculum:

  • Yoga Philosophy
  • Teaching methodology
  • Techniques, training, and practice
  • Anatomy and Physiology
  • Professional Essentials

Of the 200hr Yoga Alliance program, 180 hours are required as contact hours and the rest, non-contact. Lead instructors are required to teach 80 hours and the rest can be taught by one other or a team of teachers. In Coudures, in the summer months, the lead instructor Sunshine Ross is supported by other teachers whose names do not appear here as they are different teachers in each training. If you wish more information on co-teacher bios, please send an email.

The RainbowLight Yoga program is a spiritually focused course with emphasis on yoga philosophy, practice, and meditation. Our anatomy section is mainly on inner-body anatomy (chakras and nadis / energy body).

Here are some things to do to prepare yourself for the course:

  • If you do not yet have a regular meditation practice yet, please start now (about 7-10 minutes a day for beginners, 10-20minutes a day for progressing students).
  • Please read The Yoga Sutras of Master Patanjali (I recommend the commentaries by Grshe Michael Roach or Swami Sachidananda) and the Bhagavad Gita (I suggest that you read this in full and original text instead of commentary)

Please also note that meals provided during the course are based on a vegetarian diet.
