student is given multiple opportunities to put into practice what they have learnt (both theory and practical) ensuring you are a better prepared to teach once graduating. it also challenges you to be curious and think for yourself rather than rote learning.
2023 graduate

aida h.

be prepared for yourself to naturally change from within-but also most importantly, don’t be too hard on yourself, as this course will make you realise that yoga is not meant to be captured or learnt over 200 hours, it takes more than that and it takes incorporating all aspects of yoga in your life.

this program is not only about asana or beautiful poses, it requires a lot of mental preparations, deep understanding and thought process into yoga & life. the process is not easy but fulfilling in the end.
2023 graduate

eevon c.

kaa ytt offers you a deep understanding and exploration of what the yoga is. you will learn what yoga is not and appreciate it for what it truly is. ytt is a lot more to do with self-discovery than it is about teaching how to do poses so go in with an open heart and readiness to unlearn and relearn.
