Our Sri Lanka teacher training is an all-inclusive, live in, three-week training intensive held at our new venue Lanka Yoga on Koggala lake, and is certified by Yoga Alliance. The course is for people of all backgrounds who want a fun and interactive real-world training that prepares them to teach. It is light-hearted, practical, down to earth, and avoids unnecessary fluff.
I run this training with invaluable help from my friends Jane and (travel restrictions permitting), Clare. The three of us have a great friendship, and for the last few years have been studying and teaching together between Indonesia, India, Sri Lanka and Australia.

Develop a strong and inteligent pracrtice
Focusing on posture, movement, meditation and pranayama, our morning yoga session rewires your practice to be safer, stronger and more expressive. In workshops throughout the day we go into more detail, helping you to understand the hows and whys of common postures, sequences and exercises. In short, in the short time we have, we promise to re-build your practice from the ground up.

Bringing your knowledge and newfound practice together, we spend considerable time developing communication and teaching skills to transform you into a successful yoga teacher. A yoga teacher who can take their students to the next level. To achieve this, we work on our communication daily with teaching games, improvisation, and role play. This process is proven to help find your unique teaching voice and find success in the industry.

Utilizing our comprehensive yoga teacher training manual, we study the theory behind the practice. Included are talks and interactive workshops on topics like; yoga philosophy, anatomy and physiology, sequencing, alignment, yoga history yoga industry, yogic lifestyle and much more. These interactive talks help you understand the reasons behind our approach, and yoga in general.

Although there is a wait between today and when our course starts, we think it’s a good idea to start learning today. So, we developed an online course called ‘A New Yoga,’ designed to be your first step that you can start from home. This online component with e-book, talks, and online yoga classes is free for all sign-ups to our teacher trainings, and gives you a huge boost in your understanding before we start in person. You can start the journey of learning today. Find out more about the online course here.
We are very excited that all future trainings will be held at our new venue Lanka Yoga on Koggala Lake.
A long-term dream, Jane and I have been working hard to set this venue up through 2020 to be the perfect for yoga teacher trainings.
We have set this space up specifically for our needs with the perfect mix of rooms, great outdoor spaces and an epic yoga shala. Furthermore we have been able to set things us to be as ecologically gentle as possible. There is so much to share, so to learn more click here, or check the YTT info pack for more details.

what we teach
Yoga Synergy is modern yoga with a classical and anatomical twist. It’s less about crazy sequences and more about smart actions, intelligent movements and avoiding unnecessary physical stress. You could think of it as a more refined version of modern Vinyasa. The movements are more specific, the poses more purposeful, and the teaching style more intentional. There is a deep consideration given to the structure and alignment of each shape. Learn more about it here.
ARE THERE ANY REQUIREMENTS FOR PARTICIPATING IN THE YTT?
Recommended 6 months continued (at least 2-3 times each week) yoga practice, a passion for yoga and a desire to study deeply. The program requires you to dedicate significant portions of time to your studies and you will frequently be in the studio for practice and lessons. It’s super important that you are preparing yourself ahead of time in order to get the most out of the course.
IS THE COURSE CERTIFIED?
Yes it is! Our school and this course is registered with Yoga Alliance, the world’s biggest and most respected yoga organisation. This means that after graduation, you will be able to teach anywhere in the world as an RYT200.

In the event that the training needs to be postponed due to restrictions or outcomes of Covid-19 your place will be secured at a future training of your choosing. Your deposit will not be refundable but rather transferable in this situation.
Stefan Camilleri Yoga advises you to book flights only once you have insurance that will cover a postponement, and at a date which is closer to the training to be sure all is going ahead. We recommend a 30-day lead time before confirming flights.
