This school provides a safe space to learn and grow into a deeper understandig of yoga and yourself. The 200H TTC provided by YogaLife is a profound base and gives the necessary input to be able to start as a confident yoga teacher, ready to continue the journey.

It was an absolute pleasure to meet Poonam & Thomas with their team in Zurich. They create a loving, fun, safe and uplifting environment for everyone, students, teachers, patients and their team. To me, the journey with them was the best experience I ever had with yoga.It was an absolute pleasure to meet Poonam & Thomas with their team in Zurich.

The Yogalife course has had a transformative impact on me. The course director and main teacher, Manoj Bhanot, has truely taught us a holistic approach to yoga, leading by example with a lot of compassion, that I want to exhibit as well as a yoga teacher. I have in fact already recommended their course to someone who asked me where I followed my YTT. People already asking where I did my teacher training is a clear endorsement of the teacher training I followed in my opinion. ;-)

Arnaud Installe - Niyamas Yoga Studio

I love the Indian teachings with a western twist we had from Sanjeev, Manoj, Shweta and Poonam. They teach us to teach from the heart, as they do. All topics are covered, which gives you a perfect foundation to start your teaching adventure. Even after the training we stay part of the yoga family. A heart warming community which I'm proud of to be part of.

Nele Temmerman

Very dedicated head teacher, very knowledgeable and super approachable. Overall a very pleasant experience!

Torsten Schittenhelm

Fantastic and transformative experience! I am grateful every day for all that I learnt in my TTC and for being part of the Yogalife family.

CRISTINA MONTI

Yogalife brings ancient knowledge to the modern world. Sanjeev, Manooj, Sweta, and Poonam give a true sense of doing a teacher training in India without needing to travel as far. I learned more about myself than I have in most of my life. I feel like a confident teacher and I have found my own style that I am constantly developing.

Anna Manuzzi

My Yoga Teacher Training was a seriously life-changing experience. People full of passion, knowledge and love. I felt there heard, loved, and accepted. I recommend all of you who are looking for professional organized hatha yoga teacher training.

Gosia Marmurowicz Go For Rest

The 200h program of Sanapurna in Zürich, Switzerland was really good. Quality and atmosphere were great. Poonam the head teacher is a wonderful person and a very skilled teacher. I am very grateful to be a part of this Sanapurna team.

Tim Ramholt

Had an amazing experience, have grown as a person and as a teacher. Love the way they are a family and you can keep on learning.

eva verhasselt

I enjoyed being a part of this big (European) International Yogafamily sharing authentic Hatha Yoga skills -- Bihar -Sivananda-style; warmly flavoured with Indian stories from Bhagavad Gita to the Mahabharata. Thank you :-)

Wilfrieda Paessens

Very well structured and multi-faceted TTC with highly motivated teachers. I have discovered so many new aspects of yoga, its teaching and above all, about myself.

Kathie Blanck

My experience at Yogalife was amazing I truly found a family. All the teachers are fantastic and always ready to help and listen with love and care. I'm so thankful to have Yogalife in my life I'll for sure take other training with them!

Cadei

My choice to complete my 300 hrs YTT at Yogalife was my best choice ever. Although the difficult times we all were faced due the pandemic, Sanapurna Yoga school as a part of Yogalife provided us a very well structured, very professional and profound training. This advanced Yoga Teacher Training enabled all of the participants to be better practitioners & mindful teachers.

Yoga by Stéphie

YogaLife's YTT 200hr program is absolutely superb: thoughtfully designed, comprehensive, and taught by a caring team of extremely knowledgeable instructors. It far exceeded my expectations and the experience changed my life in many positive ways.

Heather Perkins

I had the most beautiful experience completing my ATTC with YOGALIFE and SANAPURNA in Zurich. The content was of very high quality and our school looked for the best possible teachers in each specific subject. I would recommend this course to 200h yoga teachers looking to deepen their knowledge and learn in a deep and thorough way. Thank you!

Jelena Milovic

The Teacher Training with Yogalife is not "just" becoming a Yogateacher, it is a whole transformational process. I felt all the time so warm welcomed and perfectly guided through this process. Yogalife is exactly doing what I was looking for: Teaching Yoga from the heart. I learned so much and I am so grateful for that.

Lisa Rüther

Yogalife's 200 hours TTC was the most magical experience guided by exceptional teachers with true and pure knowledge ! I am already looking forward to diving into their advanced teacher programs when the time comes :)

Alyssa Baumann

it was the perfect balance of teaching of philosophy, asanas , pranyama and meditation. I really valued the fact we were pushed to teach ourself from day one! And all wanderfull teachers!

Michele de gruttola

J'ai été très heureuse d'avoir appris avec Yogalife. Ils sont très pros et le yoga est vraiment leur passion. Je là recommande les yeux fermés. Je vais continuer d'autres formations chez eux.

Am I ready for a Teacher Training?

Only prerequisite to start the teacher training is a ‘click’ with yoga. The moment you feel this system of yoga is doing good to you and you want to go to another level of refinement, you are ready for it. You can enroll the way you are without any preparation as the training itself is your preparation. You don’t need any sort of personality development or any pre knowledge of yoga or a particular level of fitness. Our groups are consisting of all ages, all genders, nationalities, different languages. You can always call us to discuss what you think is your challenge area.

Can I only do a Teacher Training when I want to start teaching Yoga?

That might not necessarily be your primary focus and that’s ok! Maybe you just want to deepen your own practice and Yogic studies and also in that case a Teacher Training is the best place to come to. We as Yogalife do have to warn you that many students during their training fall in love with sharing their Yoga and most of our graduates do start teaching. You do you!

My body isn’t flexible enough, can I still be part of the Training?

Every body is a Yoga body. As Yoga teachers, we learn how to find the right variations and modifications for every type of body or injury. We must be able to do exactly the same for ourselves. Flexibility is something that can be a result of practicing Yoga, it is not the aim of Yoga.

What style of Yoga does Yogalife teach?

Hatha Yoga is the mother of all Yoga styles. It is the most authentic Yoga to teach as all existing Yoga styles are derived from Hatha. Yogalife teaches the foundational principles of asana (postures) and unique ‘hands-on’ adjustments. From here on, each student can develop their own teacher personality and style. We feel limiting a student to a particular sequence is limiting the growth of a would be teacher.
