YogaUnion has been delivering yoga teacher training courses (YTTC’s), based on Ashtanga Vinyasa Flow, an internationally accredited program with Yoga Alliance, for over a decade now.

Enchanted by their experiences in Bali and India, Ourania and Spyros, the founders of YogaUnion, decided to call India their new yoga home. Bringing their experiences from their permanent home in Ubud (the cultural and yogic capital of Bali) to Rishikesh, India (the yoga capital of the world). YogaUnion is currently running 200-hour Vinyasa TTC, a unique and authentic course open to those who want to become yoga teachers, or simply deepen their practice.

Based on thousands of hours of experience from all over the world, Ourania and Spyros carefully created and shaped the course to deliver the most educational, life-changing experience. The training is designed to challenge and develop individuals at all levels.

This 200-hour course specializes in Vinyasa Ashtanga yoga, with a strong focus on the breath and how to combine it with movement.

With a focus on:

  • Building your confidence, skills and profound knowledge
  • Comprehensive understanding of Vinyasa & Ashtanga practice
  • Asana analysis and adjustment theory
  • Methodology, theory, philosophy and anatomy/physiology
  • Insights into basic Ayurveda, nutrition, healing, rejuvenation in relation to yoga practice
  • The business aspect of yoga

Successful graduates of the course receive an internationally recognized certification by the Yoga Alliance for the 200 hours the standard for Registered Yoga Schools (RYS).

How the training looks like

Daily mornings will begin with an hour of pranayama, meditation and mantra chanting, followed by a Vinyasa flow class.

Early afternoons are focused on deep learning of asanas with an emphasis on alignment, adjustments, and teaching methodology. You will dive into the theoretical part, studying yoga philosophy or anatomy (alternating days).

The afternoon lessons will be focused on restorative styles of yoga such as Yin, Hatha, and Nidra and specialized workshops. Far from the traditional approach, YogaUnion maintains a very high standard of teaching whilst making the classes extremely fun and interactive.

You will have 1 day off per week, usually Sundays where you get to relax or enjoy the surroundings.
