200hr yoga teacher training
Develop a strong and intelligent practice
Focusing on posture and movement and with meditation and pranayama, the morning yoga sessions rewires your practice to be safer and more expressive. In workshops, we go into detail, working with the hows and whys of different joint positions before translating that into common postures, sequences, and exercises. We create a guidebook for what each joint complex should do in each position irrespective of the pose, making things so much easier to understand.
Develop teaching skills and communication
Bringing your knowledge and newfound practice together, we spend considerable time developing and practising communication skills to transform you into a successful yoga teacher. To achieve this, we start teaching right away with teaching games, improvisation, role play and good old repetition and refinement. This process is proven to help you find your unique teaching voice and to succeed in the industry.
Get into detail
Utilising 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, the yoga industry, lifestyle, non-violent communication and much more. These interactive talks help us understand the reasons for what we do and everything you’ll teach.
Start your learning online today
Although there is a wait between today and when we meet, we think it’s a good idea to start learning immediately. Stefan developed an online course called ‘A New Yoga,’ designed to be the step between now and YTT. This included online course, with its e-book, talks and yoga classes, gives you a considerable boost in understanding before we start in person. Begin the journey of learning today; find out more here.
We are excited that all trainings are held at our venue Lanka Yoga on Koggala Lake.
A long-term dream, Stefan and the team have been working hard to set up Lanka Yoga as the perfect venue for yoga teacher training.
The space is set up expressly for our needs with the perfect mix of rooms, great outdoor spaces and an epic yoga shala. Furthermore, we have made everything as ecologically sustainable as possible. There is much to share, so to learn more, click here, or check the YTT info pack for more details.

what we teach
In this training, you’ll learn Yoga Synergy, a practice familiar with modern postural yoga like vinyasa. Yoga Synergy has a strong focus on working with and understanding human physiology. At the same time, it is strongly influenced by Taoist Yoga, like Qi Gong. This evidence-based approach focuses on maintaining a safe practice accessible to students of all levels. The movements are specific, the poses purposeful, and the teaching style intentional. Learn more about it here.

South Sri Lanka’s weather is tropical, meaning there is a dry and wet season throughout the year. It is the wet season from May until October, and it rains on and off, sometimes more and other times less. The rest of the year is sunny and dryer, with occasional rain and better surf. Temperatures are relatively constant all year round, with an average of around 26-30°C.
