50 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Course in Italy

The 50-Hour Yoga Teacher Training curriculum runs parallel to the 200-Hour course, and introduces the question, "What is Yoga?" This inquiry establishes the foundation for the next 8 days and 7 nights, while we explore Hatha Yoga postures, as well as introduce Sanskrit terms for each asana, without the expectation that you have a high degree of proficiency in their use.

Students are exposed to a foundational understanding of the human organism according to Western science and Ayurveda, to create a bridge between Eastern and Western ideologies and help students begin making connections for themselves.

This intensive 50-Hour Yoga Teacher Training Course in Italy, is designed for beginner to intermediate level yoga aspirants unable to be away from home for too long a period at one time. The regular RYT USA 200 hour course is divided into four phases each lasting one week.
