Start your learning online today
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.
Depending on the group size, and developments here in Sri Lanka, your training will either be at the fantastic Nirbana Retreat Center in Ahangama, or in our new lakeside Villa in Koggala that we have been developing into a purpose built teacher training centre.
Both locations are exceedingly comfortable, close to the beach and we have them all to ourselves! Also included are three home-cooked organic vegan meals each day to turbocharge your transformation. We’ll be a big yoga family living in our spacious, jungle home, growing together.

what we teach
alignment synergy vinyasa
Alignment Synergy Vinyasa 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, and start building your experience towards your E-RYT200 or RYT500.

Covid-19 Update Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka is opening for tourism from August 2020
Sri Lanka managed the Covid-19 situation incredibly well.
Due to the government’s confidence in handling the situation, they have decided to open Sri Lanka ahead of the tide this August, just in time for our September training. There will, of course, be restrictions, but these are all manageable and reasonable. The Sri Lankan authorities believe they can control the virus with travellers by following strict protocol and doing regular and fast testing. We think they can as well.
What this means is that if your country allows you to travel, you will be welcomed to this beautiful country with open arms, (and a mask of course) and can participate in our upcoming trainings. To learn more about the rules and protocols, click here, and contact your travel agent so they can give you the up to date specifics from your country.
It’s still an evolving situation, and there is uncertainty as things may change. To help mitigate this risk, we have put in place a set of Covid-19 specific policies for your peace of mind. This includes but isn’t limited to free re-scheduling and the addition of an online module so you can start the course from home. Learn more about our Covid-19 policies here.
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.
Due to the volatility of current events, changes may have to be made to details of the course like specifics of teachers, kitchen, and locations. We reserve the right to do at any time. If accommodation has to be changed, we will do our utmost to provide accommodation of a similar or higher rating. If a significant change becomes necessary, we will inform you as soon as reasonably possible. Learn more about our terms & conditions here.
