After a few years of plotting, True North Vinyasa can finally introduce their intensive teacher training course in their native Sweden. 2020 is the year of uncertainty, the year of acceptance, hope, and desperation. For them, it also presented a chance to put into action what they have been wanting to do for a while. They are happy to offer this signature 200-hour Vinyasa teacher training program in the lush forest of southern Sweden in late summer.
All rooms have a view of the trees and a strong connection to the surroundings. The interior is a mix of handmade details in all-natural materials, Scandinavian 60s and 70s design, and lots of personalities. The rooms are twin, all with private baths, and they can also be used as a single room (limited availability). During your stay, you will have access to a guest kitchen for your own snacks and tea, a sauna, and a big social area with a fireplace. There is Wi-Fi throughout the venue. As a group, you have plenty of space indoors and outside, as well as semi-outside in the glass-covered greenhouse area.
Students who complete their training are eligible to register with Yoga Alliance as Registered Yoga Teachers (RYT®).
In September 2020, True North Vinyasa is happy to offer the 200-hour intensive vinyasa teacher training in southern Sweden, at the countryside inn Vallåsens Värdshus. It may be the first time they host their training here but they have spent a lot of time at this peaceful haven. True North Vinyasa is a yoga teacher training true to the essence of Vinyasa with a fresh and open-minded perspective. This is an immersion into a transformational personal physical practice. It is a hands-on catapult into skillful Vinyasa teaching and the business of being a teacher.
It is a tool kit that will help you find your voice and your calling as a yoga teacher. They stay true to the core of modern Vinyasa. This means they do not provide answers and they never ask you to memorize a sequence or a script. In fact, they will not even give you a sequence. Instead, they will focus on the foundational knowledge you need in order to create your own sequences and scripts with confidence. You will learn the craft of teaching Vinyasa. The training follows and greatly exceeds the outline of Yoga Alliance and will earn you a 200-hour yoga teacher certificate.
But above all, it will mark the beginning of your new life as a skilled, articulate, creative, and inspirational Vinyasa teacher. From day one, they will guide you in deepening your practice and fine-tuning the skills you will need to be an empowered and empowering yoga teacher. Your own personal practice and choices, on and off the mat, make up the foundation of your offerings as a teacher. Exploring the refinement of body, movement, breath, energy flow, and clarity of mind is the base of your training. Be prepared to push your mental and physical boundaries throughout these intensive three weeks.
Be prepared for major shifts, changes, and transitions - again, some of the key components of Vinyasa flow yoga. Welcome circle, introduction, and your first class with them are at 4:00 p.m. on the arrival day. The closing circle and ceremony are in the late evening of day 19. The following day is check-out (day 20) and breakfast is your last meal at the venue.
True North Vinyasa offers this course as a 20-day all-inclusive intensive with additional preparation time before training begins. The intensive format allows you to fully dedicate yourself to a transformational practice and journey. They believe personal immersion is a key component in becoming a yoga teacher. You will need to be prepared to work hard in this training.
They believe in the power of beautiful surroundings and good nourishing food. For this training, they have carefully picked an amazing venue in southwestern Sweden. You will be staying in an aesthetically stimulating small retreat center, with a great boutique style and attention to detail. The venue is about one and a half hours from Copenhagen Airport, Kastrup (CPH).
True North Vinyasa is a strong team of two main teachers. Together, they have 18 years of combined teaching experience and over 30 years of combined practice. They are ready to share their knowledge of studio ownership, organizing fully booked retreats, sequencing memorable classes, and designing unique, sold-out workshops. But they are also ready to share their mistakes (yes, they have made them too) and lessons learned the hard way from the business of yoga.
The group size for this training is limited to 18 students, making the student-teacher ratio 9:1. This is unusual and guarantees individual attention and high-quality teacher training.
They have a solid worldwide network and will continue to offer insight and mentorship for an unlimited time after the teacher training has ended.
They believe in a strong, diverse team and will invite inspiring and experienced guest faculty for added perspectives.
A lot of yogis look to teacher trainings simply to learn more about yoga and to advance their personal practice. While you will get all this, True North Vinyasa is dedicated to educating teachers, not advanced yogis. They do a lot of actual teaching from day one.
Being a yoga teacher is competitive. While they give you a strong skill set to become an amazing teacher, they are also dedicated to sending you off with solid knowledge of how to build your brand, run your business, and succeed financially. They devote much more time to this than most teacher trainings.
Clear verbal communication and a varied, inspirational way with words are essential parts of your success as a yoga teacher. While your training is in English, they are aware that you may not teach in English. They will encourage you to work in your language whenever possible but they can only offer effective support in English, Swedish, and Spanish.
The venue is located in the Swedish countryside with forest all around, a lush garden, sauna, and birds singing. They close the door to the outside world and immerse fully into a physical practice. You will start practicing the art of teaching, shifting from being a student to becoming aware of the teacher's perspective.
You will focus increasingly on the teacher's skill set and toolbox. You are gradually introduced to sequencing, alignment, adjusting, and assisting, class themes, anatomy. You will start to connect the dotted lines between ancient teachings and modern yoga. You are invited to explore finding your own voice and offer as well as the technicalities of designing and successfully executing classes for different types of students and needs.
They invite you to fully step into the role of a yoga teacher. You continue your daily practice, adding a more thorough analysis of each class and incorporating an increasing amount of hands-on teaching and adjusting. You are introduced to leadership and self-care, plus the skills needed to build a business in yoga as well as branding and marketing.
The daily schedule will vary somewhat. There is no day off, but they do schedule self-studies for two full days.

Elin's sisters and brother-in-law, Mimi, Moa, and Freddie, run the place since a couple of years back. Before that, her parents ran it for many years. Both Elin and Lisa have hosted retreats and events here for years. Vallåsens Värdshus is a tight family business, with strong values, a rich history, and a unique aesthetic and flair. It is located in the forest with direct access to trails.
The direct access to the hiking and running trails will give you a chance to get out into nature quickly, which is always a beautiful thing in intensive training. In addition, a grocery store is within walking distance, and the coast and a couple of cute towns are about 20 minutes away by car. September is an amazing month in southern Sweden with the warm summer shifting towards the crisp fall. It is also the harvest season with lots of local produce and a chance to forage in the forest.
Three vegetarian meals will be served daily included in the price. You will be well taken care of by the team at Vallåsens Värdshus. Moa is known for amazing and innovative vegetarian food, where especially in September, you can expect a lot of ingredients from their own garden. You will literally see her harvesting herbs and vegetables, wild berries, and mushrooms right outside the kitchen door.
