Yoga Teacher Training Course

Become a Genuine Yoga Teacher!

We announce here some important changes for the format of the new YTTC (Yoga Teacher Training Course) group:

The YTTC organising team has taken into consideration the many requests received along the years to reduce the travelling to Paradise Denmark for the teacher training and instead to compact the course in fewer but longer modules. Another important argument is the necessity of providing continuity to the process of forming a state of spiritual fraternity. This state is an essential quality of a teacher and is awakened and amplified by taking part in prolonged spiritual activities. This is confirmed by the experiences of the module-structure of the Tantra Teacher Training Course, as well as the positive feedback from the Yoga teacher aspirants increased state of togetherness and unicity, already after just one evening was added to the training course weekends.

We restructured the format of the YTTC in the following way: 4 modules of 8 days (starting Saturday and ending next Saturday) plus the final exam. In this way, the travelling is reduced from 14 trips to Paradise (12 meetings plus the final exam and graduation) to only 6 trips, by approximately 60%.

Next Training Course starts 2025/26

Course Pre-Requisites

yoga-teacher-training-02Any student who finished the first two years of the Intensive Yoga Course in one of the member schools of the Atman Federation is welcome to take part in this course. Since the course is entirely held in English language, a fluent understanding of English is required.

Content of the Yoga Teacher Training Course

The Yoga Teacher Training Course includes the first five years of the Intensive Yoga Course as being taught in the member schools of the Atman Federation. Additionally, many esoteric notions about the teaching activity will be given. Before every training course, the aspirants are required to study certain lessons from the curriculum of the Intensive Yoga Course, lessons that will be announced in the previous meeting. Each aspirant will also need to make a presentation on a topic that is offered in the class. The aspirants have the chance to select their preferred topic.

Yoga Teacher Training Course Qualification


The course has two exams in both theory and practice. The first exam takes place after the first year and the final exam at the end of the course. The final exam also includes a thesis about a topic, which will be chosen at the first exam, which must be submitted one year later at the final exam. In case, the final exam is not or cannot be taken, it can be repeated, but only together with the next group two years after and with an additional fee. The aspirants who pass the exam and therefore graduate will receive a diploma, which entitles them to teach year one to five of the Atman Intensive Yoga Course, including all the initiations. This diploma is bi-annually validated. Without validation, the bearer loses all teaching entitlements.


This course will take place in the very heart of the Danish countryside, in the renewed venue of  Paradise Retreat Center.
