Finding a yoga school is easy...

Selecting the right yoga teacher training school is the challenge.

If you feel overwhelmed about which yoga school and yoga style you should choose for your foundational or advanced yoga teacher training, whether it is in Europe or India, you are not the only one. Most everyone is.

  • Traditional yoga schools can leave you full of knowledge but lacking the teaching skills to share it.
  • Modern yoga training programs can teach you advanced postures but without the traditional foundation which underpins them.
  • Finding a yoga school that does both, and exceptionally well, that is rare.

At Alpha Yoga School we offer

A yoga training that balances traditional wisdom with modern science.

A course that teaches you what to teach, how to teach it, and why to teach it.

A program where ancient knowledge is used to transform your modern lifestyle.

So, why Alpha Yoga School?

We have been there ourselves

We learned the hard way so that you can learn the smart way in one training.

Since 2014 we have spent over 3,000 hours training hundreds of Yoga teachers. Although that number is impressive, it is not the quantity which you should be impressed by. It is the quality of our students. This is what we are most proud of. ​

Years ago we made the decision to stop teaching classes in yoga studios and dedicate all of our efforts to creating the most comprehensive yoga teacher training possible. To become specialists. To teach the teachers. And that is exactly what we have done.

We have intentionally taught and studied Yoga in India, the USA, and Europe. Why? So we can teach you the ancient lineage of Ashtanga yoga and the modern style of Vinyasa flow yoga with great emphasis on balancing both. Not many yoga schools quite nailed this.

As well as devising the best curriculums, we are also obsessed with transformation. We love to witness the changes in our students' practice and in their mindsets. Seeing our graduates teach what they love and having their students love what they teach.

Our new yoga teachers (200-hr YTT) begin their careers with confidence that only competence and skill can provide. Our advanced yoga teachers (300-hr YTT) leave with a new level of sophistication. Through honing their craft and refining their technique they leave with clarity and certainty of their value.

Recognized certification so that you can teach worldwide.

All our programs are registered with Yoga Alliance U.S.A. and Yoga Alliance Professionals U.K.

I could not wish for a better Yoga Teacher Training. I am so grateful for the opportunity to study with the best yoga teachers. They supported us and motivated us during the whole yoga training because they wanted us to leave as confident yoga teachers with great skills. We learned about adjustment, alignment, vinyasa sequencing, pranayama techniques...we covered a lot! In one week we were able to self-practice without any previous experience. The location was amazing, with crystal clear sea, great food and nice, clean accommodation. Thank you for everything!"

"An amazing life-changing yoga experience"!Aneta Opletalová, the Czech Republic

The teaching, the people, the food, the glorious view we would get every morning as we practiced yoga, all of it was just divine. I came primarily because I wanted to expand my yoga practice and gain the tools necessary to teach, but also because I really needed to escape the stress and horror of the past few months. What came up time and time again was how soothing this experience had been for all of us. The teacher training gave us all an opportunity to slow down and find our inner strength.

Martin and Joanna are excellent teachers and have put together the perfect curriculum for you to deepen your practice and become a yoga teacher! I loved the big emphasis on “Adjustments and Alignment”, which I am sure you won’t get most places, at least not in this amount or quality! Definitely the best classes of the course. I loved that morning classes changed between Ashtanga and Vinyasa Flow Yoga and how much attention the two teachers paid to evolve your practice. I didn’t practice Ashtanga before I got there and wasn’t sure it was really for me. Martin turned that around! I found that the theoretical classes really opened up to everything behind the physical yoga practice. I would with no doubt recommend this teacher training!

Best yoga teacher training!Signe Eshøj from Denmark

Hey Joanna, how are you? I wanted to reach out and give you an update as I’ve been thinking a lot this week about everything I learnt.
I’ve been practicing yoga so much, I feel myself not aligning with fitness the same anymore. I almost feel guilty for not wanting to do extreme fitness it’s the most bizarre experience. I never expected my life to change so much after making the decision to do the course. Looks like my life path is changing even more than I thought. I’m changing everyday and I can’t quite believe I’m shredding away old versions of me rapidly. It’s been very intense. I teach my first face to face yoga class on Monday and I’ve started online already which is going amazing.

Megan Murrie from the UKThank you

I went to a hatha class and the woman I met runs the biggest yoga school in my area. She couldn’t believe I’ve just started my journey. She said my asanas, hand and foot placement were beautiful. I have all you to thank for that.
Missing you! I hope you are all well and I’m loving your Instagram posts ❤️
My work and my plans have already started on building a yoga website, memberships and offer classes. 🥰
Honestly, that course changed my life! Thank you for everything that you Martin and Aris taught me. Somethings just clicked since I got home and I finally feel I’m on the right path. I’ve also been offered 2 jobs in 2 yoga studios since I got back 🙏🏻❤️ I’m coming back so I’ll see you next year 😂

Megan Murrie from the UKThank you

Dear Joanna and Martin,
how are you?
I look back with a lot of nostalgia and gratitude. I have learned so many skills, got the knowledge that helps me on my yoga teacher path, and I appreciate all the teachings we received.
My state of being was rather depressive at that time but I feel totally different a year after.
My yoga journey continues with irregular self practice, just what I need to do and staying loyal to vinyasa. I teach 2 classes/week, one online and one offline for a private group. What an experience! I just love it, and also the amount is just fine. Not for earning a living, but evolving as a teacher, having enough space to think, and share the yoga.

Katerina Prouzova from the Czech Republic

Joanna, my mind is conscious, my heart is full and my body is stronger. I passed through very difficult years, very difficult. This experience brings life force to me. I can be whatever I want, no matter how ambitious is but with passion, dedication, self discipline and above all LOVE, life gives you back all the positivity we deserve.

If we can control our breath we can do whatever we want.
Our body is our temple and our mind is its key.

Please, please, please keep on going in what you do, you all guys speak to people’s heart and the world need it.

Grazie, per sempre grazie

Marta Iacopetti from ItalyGrazie

Hello! 🤍How are you? Yesterday I taught a class and my friend yoga teacher joined. He said that my adjustments were just in point and he loved the way I lead a class! I was very happy with this feedback, therefore wanted to share as I learned it from you! 🙂

The time is never perfect

If you wait for everything to fall into place you may be waiting a lifetime. Transformation requires change and change requires action.

Ask yourself. If you pass on this opportunity, postpone the decision, and do nothing, a year from today, will you hear praise for how much this yoga training had changed you? Will you have a solid yoga practice, feel fit, and teach your clients and friends a healthy lifestyle?

Probably NOT. You will still wish it and want it but you won't have any of it.

Face it. Most of what you need is action, instruction, and encouragement.

Ok. So here it is...

The dream murdering reasons

The biggest reason people never go through yoga teacher training is that they believe that they don't have what it takes. Like...

"I need to be young, thin, and flexible". No!

Taking your practice to a new level doesn’t always mean adding crazy postures. It means practicing with more awareness in your body. An advanced yoga practitioner doesn’t always make a great yoga teacher. Teaching yoga is a different skill than practicing Yoga.

"People will think I’m a phoney. That I don't have what it takes to be a teacher." Really?

The purpose of Yoga Teacher Training is that you’ll realize that the physical practice can be tailored to any person. Yoga is for everybody and every BODY.

Different body types may find different yoga poses more accessible. There are always modifications and preparation poses even for the most advanced asanas.

Choose your course

"There’s so much to learn! All I know about is the Yoga poses".

So, how do you know that you are ready? The simple answer is, that you never do, not until you try. Every journey must start somewhere. Things worth learning, take time.

You will be offered the tools, safe space, and opportunities to practice and teach. You will receive detailed feedback on how to improve.

All you need to do is try, make mistakes, learn, adapt, and repeat.

9 Tips To Choosing YTT

"There are already so many yoga teachers out there", or "someone is already teaching the niche that I want to teach." Let us shout this to you. IT DOESN’T MATTER! Why?

There is only one you. There is NO ONE out there with the same message or gifts to share as you do. You are unique and you can bring to the table what no one else can.

For every yoga teacher, there's a student.

We could write thousands of words about our yoga training. But we prefer the students to do the talking.
