Are you passionate about yoga and ready to take the step toward (further) personal transformation? Is it your dream to make a living by doing what you love? Would you like to deeply understand the teachings and practices of the ancient traditions of yoga or become more specialised than you already are? And does being a part of an inclusive and wholesome yogic environment sound good to you? Then the certified Yoga Teacher Training at Kawai Purapura is for you.

Kawai Purapura is a Yoga Alliance registered and recognised yoga school that applies yogic wisdom in all areas of life. It offers both 200 Hour and 500 Hour Yoga Teacher Training, that prepares you well beyond the mat, enabling you to actually live yoga rather than learning how to teach a series of postures. The supportive and nourishing environment encourages you to reach your full potential and experience true unification with the Self, the Supreme and the Universe.

The 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training is a foundation for teaching that covers all aspects of yoga practice and prepares you to start a flexible and meaningful career to help others. The training is designed to trigger your development and transformation, facilitating you to emerge as a practitioner and teacher of skill and wisdom.

The 500 Hour Yoga Teacher Training runs as two distinct 150-hour modules, that can be taken together or separately upon completion of the 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training. The modules are structured to provide advanced experience and understanding in all aspects of yoga, to evolve as a teacher and to facilitate teaching to all levels and conditions of students.


This 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training is dedicated to helping you establish a solid foundation to becoming an inspiring and skilled teacher. It trains you in the ancient traditional approach to yoga practice and extends your journey into the modern evolutionary pathways of yoga, exploring the richness of the relationship between body, mind and movement. You will gain enough in-depth knowledge and understanding of each of the eight limbs of yoga to be able to connect with the origin of yoga and the teacher within.

On the course, there will be a lot of opportunity to refine your practice, deepen your knowledge of many aspects of yoga, learn about anatomy and physiology and how yoga benefits the body and mind. You will gain the essential teaching skills necessary to confidently lead group sessions and also learn about the business aspect of yoga, along with the skills required to create a sustainable practice.

2x 9-Days Intensive
This Training is 2x nine continuous days of instruction, in which the 180 hours are completed, with a two-month break in between.
