Students that loved this course

Yesterday I taught my first ever 90min class in the studio and it was amazing!! I was so proud of myself and felt like flying afterwards. One of the students told me afterwards, that she loved how I had so many anatomical and alignment cues - she really felt that was rare to find - and without it “ruining” the flow of the class.
This is with no doubt thanks to you guys! Thank you so incredibly much for everything that you taught me and everything you made possible through Alpha Yoga School! I am so grateful that my gut feeling told me that this was the teacher training for me. That I came back in the summer for the 300-hr YTT was the best decision ever and has definitely made me a better teacher!
Keep doing your incredible work and inspire future knowledgeable and talented yoga teachers ❤️✨ Hugs Signe

Signe EshojStudent in the 200hr YTT and 300hr YTT / Denmark

"I'm so happy with my 300 hour training! The venue was a gorgeous place to practise and the teachers were very skilled and supportive. The yummy food and clear blue sea was such a treat! I made some amazing connections with the other students and teachers. My practise feels stronger and my teaching methods have developed so much more. I'm so grateful I could take part in this training"

Abbey GriggsEngland, UK

300h YTT with Alpha Yoga school was my best decision for 2022! I decided to join the course as I was looking for mentors, inspiration, and methodology.
During the course, I had the pleasure to learn from experienced, charismatic, passionate teachers. We (students) clapped our hands after each class with excitement and approval. The amount of knowledge and skills I acquired during the training is mind-blowing. Teachers generated a friendly and safe environment to learn and grow. My goal for the training was to gain more confidence and the confidence arised after these 3 and a half weeks! I am extremely grateful for that! On top of it, we lived in the beautiful lagoon area in a nice venue with yummy food and amazing staff! I celebrated my b'day during the training and was treated to delicious chocolate cake, which we all could enjoy!

Monika StachurskaAmsterdam, November YTT 2022

I feel grateful and privileged to have experienced every second of my 300hr intensive YTT with such incredible teachers, beautiful souls and to have been part of building a community where everyone wanted the best for each other on and off the mat.
I spent so much time researching and trying to find the best YTT for me but I kept being drawn back to Alpha Yoga School. I am so glad I chose them. Joanna, Martin, Eli, Sean, Athena and Cedrick all made this training EPIC. If you are looking for Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Yin, meditation, pranayama, anatomy, philosophy and so much more this is the course for you.
The days were long and intense but the knowledge, skills and energy held throughout was truly inspiring. Being cocooned in our own little bubble at the beautiful Evia Silence allowed total submersion into the training. The food was made with love and the accommodation was lovely.
I recommend this YTT 100%!

Steph BaldwinUnited Kingdom, November YTT 2022

I have done my 300h YTT with Alpha Yoga School in November at the beautiful surroundings of Evia Silence in Greece. I did not have any expectations.. although as a yoga teacher and also a yoga studio owner I am used to teach a lot so I was not sure what more is there to learn.. I must admit the whole experience was simply amazing!
The teachers were all professionals and the schedule was packed with interesting topics such as philosophy in depth with Cedric, which you will not have time to dive deep into in your 200h. Adjustments in yoga asanas with Martin were so profound and effective.
Cueing techniques and so much more with Joanna. With Eli we also learned about well rounded classes and sequencing. In anatomy about yoga injuries, correct alignment and how to work with the students in case of limitations.

Magdalena StarhovaCzech Republic, November YTT 2022

Part 2: I can say I deepened my practice knowledge due to inspiring classes led by Sean. My favorite part was that we did not focus just on Vinyasa Flow, but also Yin yoga and had chance to try out the Tantra yoga. We did chanting together as well and learned new mantras thanks to Athena. There are 3 great things about this YTT to bear in mind.. 1. You will learn from great yoga teachers who also use to teach in India. 2. You will gain plenty of new friendships across the world and meet inspiring people. 3. The weather and the location makes you feel like in a small vacation whilst you will learn so much in just 25 days.

Magdalena StarhovaCzech Republic, November YTT 2022

I recently finished my 300 hours course at Alpha Yoga School. This course gave me much more than I expected, both as a teacher and a yoga practitioner. I could see so much dedication and authenticity in the teachers and their sharing of knowledge; it was truly inspiring and motivating at the same time. What I appreciated the most was their desire to make us great teachers, and we received every necessary tool for that to become true. After this course, I am much more confident as a yoga teacher, and thanks to their detailed, personalized, and constructive feedback, I know exactly what I need to work on to become even better. I feel grateful for having Joana, Martin, Eleanor, Cedric, Athena, and Sean as teachers; they are excellent guides in the yoga journey.
I recommend this course to everyone who wants to deepen their knowledge and become a fantastic yoga teacher.

Stela CotrutaRomania, November YTT 2022

I had the pleasure to participate in the 300hr vinyasa teacher training and couldn't be more happy with my experience. Compared to my 200hrs in India I can really say this is a proper teacher training with the emphasis on really learning how to teach, adjust and really dive deeper into what yoga means on and off the mat.
Joana and Martin are fantastic, knowledgeable, kind and caring teachers and human beings. Especially their adjustments are mind-blowing and their understanding of anatomy and alignment helps to make sense of the correct execution of asanas and understand them on a whole new level.

Jan KnodtGermany, November YTT 2022

Part 2:
Sean's handstand, backbend, & inversion workshops were phenomenal and some of many highlights in the course and Eli's anatomy, sequencing & yin classes really showed that she's an expert on her matters as an osteopath & yogi. Athena and Cedrics beautiful meditation, philosophy classes, Kirtans, sound bath and their ability to hold space completed a fantastic teacher team.
The location in Evia is so beautiful and comfortable, food was made with love and stuff is caring and always happy to help if you need anything.
If you're looking for a challenging and great value ytt I'll recommend alpha Yoga school anyday!

Frequently Asked Questions about the 300h Yoga Teacher Training

Is there pre-course preparation and how does it look like?

Once students sign up, they will receive the pre-course homework in an email and can get started right away.

Students are required to watch Anatomy Videos and answer some questions. All anatomy videos will be provided by us for free.

Students are required to watch Rachel’s videos on alignment - included.

Students are required to watch Martin and Joanna’s adjustments, included.

Students will write a 1000-word essay (3-4 pages) on a topic of their own choosing and interest.

Yogic Philosophy assignment: Write a 500-word essay.

Are there any additional "hidden" costs I should know about?

1. As lunch is not included in this course, students place an order at a local supermarket once per week. If you want to buy food, then 15 euros per week would be more than enough. 2. Your transportation can cost anywhere between 40 euros for a shared taxi/minibus or 120 euros for a private taxi (one way) 4. Laundry costs around 12 euros and you can share the load and the cost with your roommates. Or you can wash the clothes manually in your room :-).

I have very little teaching experience. Can I still join this course?

Yes! Many students join this course just to get teaching experience. You will teach a lot (from week 1) and gain continuous feedback from your peer students and your teachers. You will leave confident and equipped with great teaching tools.

I cannot do crazy postures. Can I still join this course?

Of course you can. The asanas are a never-ending journey and we shouldn't get trapped in this. The point of this course is not to leave on a one-hand handstand. The main aim is to practice, to learn as many skills as you can, and to get as much knowledge as you can so that you can be a better practitioner and serve your students better.

What happens if I need to cancel my spot?

As long as you let us know at least 42 days before the course starts, your deposit will automatically get transferred to a future course. Any cancelation notifications received within 42 days before the course starts, your 400 euros will no longer be transferable and will be lost.

Can I reach the retreat center with public transportation from Athens Airport?

Yes, you can, but you will still need to take a taxi for the last 25 km. In order to save money, you would have to share the cost of this taxi with one more person. To use this method, you must combine 2 buses and then a taxi for the last 25 km. If you travel on your own and pay for both buses and the taxi on your own, then it's preferable to take the minibus with the rest of the students from the airport.

On which day should I arrive? Can I go to the retreat center before the course starts?

The arrival date is on the first day you see on our website. Find a flight that gets to Athens Airport around 1 or 2 pm so that you can be at the retreat center by 5:00 pm maximum. The ride from Athens Airport to the retreat center is around 2,5 hours. If you want to arrive a few days earlier than the check-in dates, please let us know in advance. Check-out is on the last date that you see on the website. Book a flight back, taking into consideration that it takes about 2.5 hours to get to the airport.

How many students do you accept per course?

We accept 22-26 students for this course as the retreat center is quite small and has only 12 rooms. Please apply at least 5-6 months ahead to get your spot.
