YTT 200h HATHA YOGA in europe


















Our 200-hour Hatha Yoga instructor training is a personal journey for those who choose to follow it. We respect the brilliance of each person and try to cultivate it in the best spirit of the yoga practices. Our program helps the practitioner to become more self-reliant in their practice, giving them confidence and support. We encourage yoga practitioners to spread the yogic light of knowledge by teaching this teaching further. Our main purpose is to reveal the first steps of this practice, so that students can choose consciously, without hesitation, the path they want to take.


Hatha Yoga is known in the Indian tradition as hatha vidya. The Hatha Yoga system was popularized by the Great Yogi Swami Swatmarama in the 15th century, by writing the Hatha Yoga pradipika text. Hatha Yoga has been described as representing the practical and physical part of yoga, by reference to the strictly abstract part, where Bhakti and Jnana Yoga fall. Yogi Swatrama mentioned that Hatha Yoga is the preliminary path to more advanced practices, such as Raja Yoga (Ashtanga Yoga).


“I deal with the initiation in Hatha Yoga only in the perspective of the transition to Raja Yoga, the highest state of yoga” – Swami Swatmarama


The word „hatha” is made up of two words. ‘Ha’ means sun and ‘tha’ means moon. It is the symbolic expression of the union of two energies, the masculine and the feminine. It represents the strength of mind, body and Prana. The sun is represented as the pranic energy of the body, while the moon is the mental energy of reading. ‘Ha’ is more dynamic and active, while ‘Tha’ is more creative and responsive. Hatha Yoga is the Yoga branch that teaches us the balance between the two extremes. The word „ha” refers to the solar nadi (pingala) in the subtle body, and „tha” to the lunar channel (ida). However, when the two components of the term are put together, „hatha” means „full of strength”, implying that strong involvement is required in order to purify the body.

If we start from the definition of yoga in Patanjali’s sutras, „Yoga is the cessation of mental fluctuations”. According to this definition, we should detach in practice from any voice or story running in the mind for the realization of the supreme self. In this context, what role would the study of a discipline like anatomy have? Frankly speaking, not too much. But analyzing the perspective of the times in which we live compared to the beginnings of the yogic tradition, things have changed a little. Traditionally, practicing asanas with consistency and dedication for decades, would daily give you a deep knowledge of the physical body (annamayakosha) without the need to study anatomy, being able to teach the practice in an authentic way respecting the yogin principles, those of nonviolence applied to one’s own body. However, if the practice is not so long, your kinesthetic system may not be able to help you assist other people in this way of asanas or encounter a barrier of communication with the predominantly mental persons.

Studying the anatomy helps us to understand the phenomena that happen on a physical level in our body in order to support them through the practice of yoga. The anatomy module is applied to yoga practice, helping the practitioner to become aware of certain limitations that can be overcome through practice or other limitations that must be accepted by adapting the practice to them. The studied elements are basic elements that confer a minimum of knowledge, meant to help us not to cause dysfunctions of our anatomical systems.


The first important perspective in being a yoga teacher or instructor is to remain a conscientious student at all times, respecting this practice and evolving in it. A teacher who stops his search is like a fountain disconnected from the spring. Teaching yoga is not a job but more a calling, which gives you satisfaction on several levels, these levels are not necessarily financial but more from the realm of spiritual joys and achievements. You will have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of those with whom you interact, giving them a smile on their lips or more, confidence in self realization.

Teaching yoga is not limited to teaching some techniques or physical positions, your students will seek guidance on different planes of their lives, people do not come to yoga just for the physical part, they seek a deeper sense of the practice which they want to experience. The effects of your lessons may be hidden for years, so you should not let yourself be led by the mirage of results and continue your journey with dedication and consistency in accordance with the rules of yoga practice.

Teaching Yoga will not change from day to day, neither in your life nor in the lives of your students, will it take years to see the fruits of your efforts. To become a teacher, you need patience (Dheryaa), the quality of teaching increasing with time, practice, self-development, lifelong learning and relentless efforts.

The respect (Sammaan) due to those who have contributed to our training as teachers is mandatory in Yoga. Any aspiring teacher should respect their teachers who have contributed to their training, either by learning a single word. Only the mastery of a few asanas will lead you nowhere but on the path of arrogance. A good teacher will always respect his own teachers.


  • You want to deepen this practice but not from a dogmatic approche

Our course is certified by the Yoga Alliance US, an international organization that seeks to bring together yoga practice and teaching, in order to give practitioners a minimum of the practices they adopt and teachers a common line to teach.

For more details on Yoga Alliance US you can visit the international platform

Traditionally this certification or membership is given by the teaching itself received from the teacher and taught to the following students orally. The teachers of our school have been taught on various disciplines that respect the classical writings Patanjali Yoga Sutra, Hatha Yoga Pradipika, Bhagavad Gita and more. This non-doctrinal approach gives students the freedom to choose a doctrine to which to adhere or not.



Echipa de bază a cadrelor didactice este formată din profesori cu experiență din România. Această echipă are o creștere organică în funcție de nevoile și noile tendințe care apar în acest domeniu prin instruirea viitorilor profesori la nivel local.
