The 200hrs Yoga TTC has no technical entry levels requirements, other than commitment, dedication and passion. However, regular active physical activity is need to endure the practice; once you have enrolled, we do recommend you practice as much Yoga as you can before coming to Mexico. This includes; asana, meditation and pranayama.
As the course is physically and mentally pretty intense, the fitter you are at the start of the course, the easier it will be on you. We do not impose a minimum experience in yoga because this is a foundational course and some students choose to join us for their own development, not for the teaching certificate. We believe that if you love and have a dedicated practice yoga, you will teach once you are ready anyway, whether you hold a registered certificate and can do a handstand or not. It is the experience and not the piece of paper that makes you a teacher.
Other special retreats do not require previous Yoga experience. Make sure to review each courses individual profile.
There are some of our courses that do require previous Yoga experience, only students that match the criteria are eligible to participate. Make sure to review each courses individual profile.
This only applies to certified courses, all retreats are not certified and open to the general public.
Our most basic course, the 200hr Yoga TTC is not only for future teachers. There are plenty of valid reasons to join a Yoga TTC, some students just wish to deepen their knowledge in order to transform the personal lives. While others look forward to share their knowledge in their communities or explore the world by doing so.
TRIMURTI is a certified Yoga School with Yoga Alliance USA. We offer various certification levels:
Please review each courses individual profile to verify the certification given at the time of completion.
Once you graduate from our course, you will get a certificate confirming that you have completed the certification (example: 200-hour multi-style yoga teacher training course) with Trimurti Yoga Mexico. This allows you to teach and get a professional insurance all over the world without further ado.
Our programs are recognised by Yoga Alliance in the United States. You can choose whether you want to become a member of Yoga Alliance US and be listed in their registry. Some employers may require that you register with a (national) yoga association such as the Yoga Alliance, but if you are your own boss, you don’t need to. Most yoga associations around the world will also recognise the Yoga Alliance US standards that our trainings are based on, so with our certificate you should be able to join most yoga associations.
If you wish to study one particular style in depth, including its philosophy, its teaching methodolody and other aspects, teacher trainings such as Yin Yoga, Prenatal, Sivananda, Kundalini, Iyengar or Bikram courses should be part of your learning.
Our 200-hour yoga teacher training program however is an foundational course that is open to everybody. We believe that broadens your horizon, even if you are dedicated to a certain style. It will give you insights into traditions that you may not have considered before and we don’t restrict you in any way. On the contrary, we encourage development of your own style. We focus on general safety, alignment and teaching skills that are of use in any kind of yoga teaching. Ultimately, all yoga comes from the same source and once your know that source, you should choose your own path.
Yes, if you are fit enough to participate in an intensive course of 12 hours per day. We would absolutely LOVE it if you could join, assuming that you are in a condition to travel and are willing to take full responsibility of your health during the course. We have no medical care in the vicinity, so you must be able to manage your condition and medication.
We certainly do not want to pretend that our program is lighter than it is, but we do believe that this world needs more yoga teachers that intimately know their own capabilities and limitations. As yoga becomes increasingly popular, we feel that the people spreading the passion and the knowledge of yoga need to represent the population average and this includes people with conditions and disabilities. Knowing how to deal with physical challenges gives you an enormous advantage as a teacher in terms of understanding, empathy and acceptance as well as determination and discipline. Karo, the founder of Trimurti Yoga, suffers from severe Type I Diabetes since the age of 17 and it certainly hasn’t stopped her from achieving her yoga goals!
Upon successful completion of the 200hrs Yoga TTC, you will be able to teach Yoga worldwide. Here at TRIMURTI Yoga, we extend the opportunity to grow within our family through internships and latter carrier opportunities.
The same rule applies for continuing education programs (Yin Yoga, Prenatal ) and for 300hrs Yoga TTC.
