2024 dates coming soon!!!

Whether you want to fulfil your dream of becoming a certified yoga teacher, or you’re looking for a great way to dive deeper into your yoga practice and gain a comprehensive understanding of what yoga is, our 200-hours Yoga Teacher Training with Sara Ticha and Lenka Minarik is the perfect match for you.

Over the course of the training we will guide you step-by-step through yoga practices, help you establish your own home practice, and show you how to share yoga, with all it encompasses, with others, making you both a great student and a teacher. The training will be located at a beautiful and secluded retreat centre and animal sanctuary Dvur Svata Mari where you’ll be able to fully disconnect from your everyday life and dive into your practice, along with regular online classes between the two modules in person.

Our training combines a modern approach to asanas (yoga positions), bridging the alignment, anatomy, and traditional elements from different yoga lineages. Our unique teaching faculty will provide everything necessary for you to gain skills not only in asana practice, meditation, and breathwork, but also help you understand yogic history and philosophy, and share tools that will help you kickstart your yoga business.​
