KALAA Yoga Ausbildung Testimonial André

“After a 200-hour training in traditional Hatha Yoga, I consciously chose KALAA with its Vinyasa focus. It allowed me to significantly expand my teaching repertoire, but most importantly, my own practice. I regularly reached my limits and went beyond them. The 300-hour training at KALAA has accompanied me for over a year in the most intense moments of life. The yoga practice remains always present throughout the structure of the course and is excellent to combine with everyday life. All the teachers have contributed in a great way to the comprehensive training that has had a lasting effect on me. Thank you very much.”

KALAA Yoga Ausbildung Testimonial Katalin

“I completed my 200-hour Vinyasa Yoga teacher training at KALAA Yoga Berlin in 2019/20. After graduating I decided to continue studying and hence I was part of the 300-hour “Advanced Vinyasa and restorative practices” training. The course was delivered with passion and professionalism by Manu and Stefanie and the international guest teachers. I really enjoyed the opportunities to teach each other, give and get feedback from other yoga teachers, go deeper into my research topic and present it back to my peers. Since I finished the training I regularly teach at KALAA as well as in Hungary, my homeland.”

KALAA Yoga Ausbildung Testimonial Jan

“The decision for the 300-hour KALAA Yoga training was already made when I finished my 200-hour training in 2017 with Manu and Stefanie. I was delighted that there free spot for me in fall of 2020. The two have accompanied me in my own yoga practice for several years. They impart their profound knowledge of movement, philosophy, anatomy and the holistic system with an infectious, lively enthusiasm and collaborate with great guest lecturers. During the really intensive weekends there was enough space to individually refine one’s own teaching practice and to try out and exchange ideas. I found it very stimulating that the history of yoga and current developments were discussed critically and openly. Many thanks to KALAA and the other participants for the extraordinarily enriching experiences and the intensive time at the training.”

KALAA Yoga Ausbildung Testimonial Uli

“With the 300-hour training at KALAA Yoga Berlin, a journey into yoga has begun for me, which has deepened and enriched my knowledge and practice very much. I have gained a lot of insights to be able to adjust to my students as a yoga teacher even more confidently and flexibly. An intuitive trust in myself as someone who is aware of the responsibility it brings to pass on the teachings of yoga and to do so with joy and ease.“

KALAA Yoga Ausbildung Testimonial Katharina

“The 300-hour training at KALAA Yoga Berlin was perfect! The content was very exciting and definitely went beyond the usual. Especially inspiring for me was the thorough introduction to the “Somatic Practice” and the ingeniously conveyed yoga philosophy as well as the creativity in sequencing, which now allows me to make my yoga classes even more varied. I found the gradual structure of the advanced Asanas helpful, allowing me to teach mixed classes in a meaningful way for all participants. The critical examination of uncomfortable but important topics such as exclusion or violence in the beautiful yoga world was particularly remarkable.
The challenges posed by the pandemic were met with great resourcefulness, so that the training could take place as planned. The learning atmosphere was excellent, the interaction with each other cordial and cooperative. Thank you very much for the great time!”

Alan believes that a practice should be for life and so that an individual’s practice has to evolve with age and as life circumstances change. He prefers to teach self-practice because it empowers the practitioner, ideally making them their own best teacher. He teaches with an attention to technical detail but with an equal attention to joy!
