Our in person trainings are held at our magical homebase in Southern Spain, Suryalila, also founded by Vidya.

This incredible space features panoramic windows with views over the Andalusian countryside along with hand painted artwork on the walls inspired by Eastern yoga philosophy.

Other retreat centre amenities include a peaceful meditation garden, refreshing saltwater pool, cosy hand decorated bedrooms, airy communal dining hall and quiet secluded spots for study, rest and contemplation.

Advanced 300 Hour Teacher Training In Person

The Advanced Yoga Teacher Training programme is a wonderful opportunity to advance your yoga teaching, while enjoying the nurturing environment of Suryalila.

Module Sutra and Module Gita are 150 Hours Yoga Alliance (both USA and UK) certified. They can be taken together for a full 300 hours of Advanced Yoga Teacher Certification, or as a stand alone module.

This year, Module Gita and Module Sutra will run back to back so you can attend both trainings over a one month period, if you so wish. If you are already certified at the 200 hour level, taking both Module Sutra and Module Gita allows you to gain your 500 Hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Certification.

Between the two modules, we offer mentorship and help you to set and fulfil goals for further study and development. You can take them both together this year or several years apart. If you do the whole advanced training, please note that you will still have to complete 30 Hours of Homework after the training before we mail your certificate to you. This can be accomplished within a few months but there is no deadline for it.

The Advanced Yoga Teacher Training programme will be led by five incredible teachers – Vidya Heisel, Jennifer Yarro, Jennilee Toner, Lisa Dunn, Alicia Waters and Gilda Goharian.

Dates: 150 Hour Module Sutra: 20 NOV-4 DEC 2021 / 150 Hour Module Gita: 4-18 Dec 2021

Where: Suryalila Retreat Centre in Andalusia, Spain.
