Introduction | 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Goa

This is a 3-week residential course, with a maximum of 15 students. We choose small and intimate groups to help you maximise your experience. And offer support before, during, and after your training.

You’ll graduate with a complete understanding of yoga anatomy and how it relates to yoga philosophy. We’ll look at the body from energetic, physical, and spiritual perspective. Blending up to date science and contemporary knowledge with ancient yoga wisdom. Students should be prepared to be disciplined in his or her studies, accepting the practice on and off the mat as a humble student.

This course is ideal for you if you would like to take your first steps to becoming a Yoga teacher or deepen your own personal practice. It is essential that applicants are already yoga practitioners or are familiar with Ashtanga Yoga. How “advance” your physical practice is does not matter – we are not here to compete with one another in terms of flexibility or strength. We place an emphasis on getting into postures the right way and how it feels – every body is different. We ask you have a willingness to learn and an enthusiasm for the practice of yoga.

The resort sits amongst the palm trees on the backwaters of Goa and is just a short walk from Patnem Beach. With an abundance of hammocks scattered throughout the resort and nestled away from the hustle and bustle of the beach, it is the perfect study environment. This Yoga TTC is a residential course with accommodation, breakfast and lunch included. Students are encouraged to dine nearby to sample some of Goan’s finest cuisine and support the local community in one of the many beach restaurants. Sunset sodas are a must after full day of study!

I did my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training with Julia and it was simply amazing. Everyone working at Palm Trees is so lovely. The food is delicious and the resort is so beautiful with all the palm trees, plants and sculptures.

The Yoga Shala is also equipped with a lovely view of the surrounding palm trees. The yoga teachers do an amazing job. I have learned so much here!

The whole stay felt homely thanks to the very welcoming, a Palm Trees Family.
