250 hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training

Hot Yoga Bologna is very excited to present Bologna’s first Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training program! 

Our program will conveniently be held at our Yoga Studio, Hot Yoga Bologna, in via Rainaldi 4, Bologna.

The 250 hour Vinyasa Yoga Training begins on January 17, 2020, and will continue for 10 weekends with a final 4 day retreat in June. Please find further details below in the “training schedule”.

Our 250 hour training is recognized by Yoga Alliance Italia and Yoga Alliance International. Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive a graduation certificate that will allow you to register as a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) at the 250 hour level. This certification is recognized both in Italy and Internationally.

The Hot Yoga Bologna 250 hour Vinyasa Yoga Program provides a STRONG FOUNDATION in the science of yoga for anyone who wants to enhance their knowledge of yoga and personal practice. Whether you wish to deepen your practice, or take the first step in becoming a yoga teacher, this program is for you.

Our training staff is directed by a highly qualified group of teachers who specialize in the topics they teach. Each topic is introduced progressively over a 5 month period to give you ample time to digest the material. In between the weekend modules, our staff will help you with a unique mentoring program to offer support and guidance throughout the program. In addition, Hot Yoga Bologna will bring world recognized International teachers to you in Bologna. Learning from more than one teacher offers you a much broader perspective and will better prepare you for teaching yoga or in your development af a personal practice. 

Convenience

Many yoga trainings consolidate all information into a short period of time which can be difficult to comprehend fully. We offer instead a more graduale 5 month program which will give you more time to absorb and digest the rich material slowly. And especially if family or work doesn’t permit you to travel,  this yoga program will allow you to stay in Bologna. In fact, Hot Yoga Bologna is the only studio in Bologna that offers a 250 Yoga Alliance Accredited Vinyasa Yoga Training Program. 

Practical Experience

There will be weekly homework, and you will be assigned with a mentor (in groups of 4) who will help you with weekly assignments. There will be buddy meeting (groups of 2) that will give you feedback and guidance as you begin to construct your classes. While participating in the teacher training, you will have free access to all classes held at Hot Yoga Bologna.

Essential teaching skills

You will learn clarity of the teaching language. You will learn how to observe, demonstrate, and verbally articulate 30 asanas, as well as sequencing patterns to organize the asanas.

Personal Growth

“Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self”
On the path to becoming a yoga teacher, you will not only find your voice as a teacher but also as a leader who will inspire others in the yoga community. With this training will begin a lifetime of deeper discovery.
It is a path of personal growth, awarness and enrichment in every aspects of life.
