Our first Yoga Teacher Training in Berlin
We've made it! The first holistic Yoga Teacher Training with Yogi Sivadas in Berlin finished on the 5th of February with 7 happy and freshly qualified yoga teachers. Together we lived through a tough yet enriching period of waking up early every morning, moving our bodies for four hours a day, exploring the connection between body and mind and deepening our understanding of Yoga. We broke up with old habits, replaced them with new and long-term healthy habits, fed our bodies with a well rounded, balanced and therapeutic valuable diet of movement, concious relaxation and cultivation of a positive attitude.
The 4 weeks of training in January have surely been an intense time for all of us and also a great opportunity to learn and profit from each others unique experiences. Anthony, April, Gaby, Kanchi, Norika, Roswitha and Waltraud - Thank you for making this training a success and the time spend together. Yogi Sivadas and I hope you appreciate all of your effort put into the training programme. We certainly do! It was a true pleasure to see each of you improving. We are all walking in the same direction - every one on his/her very own path and pace. We hope you'll keep up the effort and don't loose the gains of the January immersion into Yoga. Never hesitate to get in touch with us if you have any questions about your own practice or teaching Yoga. Keep breathing, keep practising and keep your cool.
We're looking forward to stay in touch and hear about your progresses!

Our second Yoga Teacher Training
Another teacher training has ended, and seven more yoga teachers have emerged from it, enriched physically, mentally, energetically and spiritually. Yoga teaches us to live in harmony with nature and all beings. It unites us with one another and at the same time it unites us from within, helping us to bring together our disparate parts into a conscientious whole. Our new yoga teachers are now ready to go out and spread the joy of yoga.
Yogi Sivadas’ approach is wide, teaching everything from healthy breathing and eating, ayurvedic types and the 11 bodily systems, to tackling ancient yogic scriptures and the original philosophies of humanity. The students dove into the physiology of the human body and anatomical explanation of individual yoga poses, as well as discussing big life questions and re-establishing themselves on both personal and professional levels. Furthermore, they were challenged with limitations of their own personalities and explored their energetic blockages, while also learning how to cleanse their bodies and balance their energy levels. The final week of the course gave students the practical opportunity to prepare and carry out classes on their own, equipping them with the skills and confidence to go out in the world and start teaching.
Everything we intake physically or mentally shapes and determines who we are and how we feel. And the goal of it all is to be joyful and enjoy our lives! Yoga gives us the tools to do it. If you want to reset, learn how to take care of your health and go back to things that make you your best self, join us on our next intense journey with Yogi Sivadas in January 2017.
4 weeks intensive Yoga teacher training in Berlin
Our third Yoga Teacher Training
End of January 2017: We are very happy about our third successful Yoga teacher training in Berlin. It has been 4 intensive weeks, packed with Asanas, Yoga Philosophy and anatomy, Mudras and Meditation. Our Yoga teacher training led by Yogi Sivadas is focused on the holistic aspects of Yoga apart from being attached to a certain 'style'. It is about how to use your body and your movements to achieve long-term health and fitness. This doesn't exclude achieving fitness goals but it is not our main goal. We value a balanced and healthy practice without the need to get your body into insane contortions. Traditional Yoga philosophy is an essential part of our training, brought up to date by Sivadas to fit into our modern lifestyle. In a nutshell - it is about making your mind your friend, not your enemy.
Our Yoga Teacher Training is the only 4 week intensive course in Berlin, which is run in English and led by one of Indias best Yogis. Unpretentious, small scale and authentic.
Our 4th Yoga Teacher Training in Berlin
This year was our first time in a new location. We're really excited about our new studio in Friedrichshain - it's great to be hosting a teacher training in such a light and open environment, especially during Berlins grey Januaries. Again we were blessed with a dedicated and focused group of students who impressed us with their curiosity and ambition to learn, practice and teach. We, Yogi Sivadas, Alice and Eric, just want to say thank you for making January 2018 a special one for all of us. We hope to keep hearing from you and your future undertakings and wish you all the very best!
