Yoga Teacher Trainings in Berlin
Yoga Alliance 200h / 300h / 500h at YCBA
Our teacher trainings take Place in the YCBA-studios, which are located in the famous Berlin area „Prenzlauer Berg“.
We are surrounded by organic supermarkets, vegan cafes, smoothie culture, eco fashion boutiques as well as lovely vietnamese, portugese, french and so many more restaurants – all very affordable and easy to go. Not to our wonder, students from all over Europe regularly fall in love with us!
In this surrounding we aspire to make you feel as welcome and home as possible, offering space to rest between training hours, our pink kitchen to store your special food and linger and chat over free tea.
But then – we are on a „mission“: Train teachers to teach „good“ Yoga. Whaaaat???
Well, we deeply respect the abundance of Yoga traditions and styles but during these last years we realised we can enhance your knowledge whichever style you come from!
So what do we call „good“ Yoga?
Leaving your students empowered, aligned and well (for example: no slipped disks after some years of practicing asana)
As regards philosophy:
No Guru. You have the Guru within yourself. Maybe your inner Guru tells you to turn to someone for her or his special knowlege and make her your Guru for that topic. But not for your life. We cannot deliver that. We totally respect someones need for guidance and a Guru who tells him what to do in every aspect in her or his life – but that’s not us.
Concerning the many aspects of Hatha Yoga in its more modern sense
(not the american classification as a non-brand style):
Yes, we embrace and teach Pranayama, Mantra, Mudra, Meditation and Philosophies (mark the plural).
So: What else makes the trainings in YogaCircle Berlin Academy special/different?
Our trainings are different from many training programs that we are familiar with, as we aren’t training teachers to just teach one sequence or one type of class. Furthermore our curriculum is broad based and deeply influenced by our excellent teachers and especially by Jordan Bloom and Noah Maze. As a result we train students to teach many different types of yoga classes, from alignment/anatomically based classes and workshops, to rhythmic and dynamic vinyasa flow classes.
What is a Teacher Training?
Students receive a rigorous and detailed curriculum, not just in yoga asana, teaching and leadership skills, but in yoga history and philosophy, myth and story telling, esoteric inner practices (such as mudra, mantra, meditation), as well as anatomy and kinesiology. With this intention our trainings emphasize experiential educational methods to maximize the trainee’s understanding and education. Our teaching practicum focuses on transferable skills and involve specific progressive lessons so that each trainee understands and learns the skills and techniques of teaching postural yoga classes and graduates the training with many tools and skills to teach. We think these facts make our trainings special and different….but of course we are biased. Join us and come see for yourself!
