We Can Help You Become A Yoga Alliance Certified Yoga Teacher Within the Next 12 Weeks
Dear future Yoga Teacher,
We are Lucas Casanova & Kimhye Jin and we are the teachers that heart-centered Yogi(ni)s go to when they need help with becoming Yoga Teachers. Whether they want to start their own studio, work in a studio, host online classes, or expand their knowledge and understanding of Yoga to take their own practice to the next level.
In case you’ve never heard of us, here is why we are qualified to tell you about how you can become a world-class Yoga Teacher… when you follow our guidance:
✔️ Kimhye has built several 5-star studios within yoga, dance & fitness… and… She did it all in just 4 years
✔️ Lucas has been invited to talk about everything he knew about yoga and recovery at the prestigious TEDx and is writing a book about dealing with life-changing crises using yoga and meditation as practical and down-to-earth tools
And most importantly to YOU, as an aspiring Yoga Teacher:
✔️ Lucas has more than 3,500 hours of teaching experience and graduated hundreds of students as the headteacher at different international YTT´s
✔️ Kimhye has dedicated large parts of her life to studying how to transform blockages, negative emotions, and traumas into freedom and knows exactly how to support you. She also hosts The Tantra Rebel Podcast going in-depth on these topics with Lucas every week
But we ́re not writing this just to talk about ourselves. We want to show you how we can help you become a Certified Yoga Teacher …starting your own journey today!
Let´s face it – the world is becoming an increasingly more strange and complex place with each passing day… We are experiencing a massive increase in demand for the grounding and deeper connection that Yoga can provide… and there is a great opportunity right now to learn these tools and share them with others as a Yoga Teacher!
But Yoga is much more than the physical practice on the mat… We believe that to become a Yoga Teacher that can lift yourself and others up, you need to integrate body, mind & soul. This teacher training is a transformational experience designed to help you with that.

✔️ Classic Yoga Styles
An exploration of the classical traditions and their core philosophies, including Hatha, Tantra, Yin, and Vinyasa yoga. Learn about the roots of yoga and how it has branched out to where it is today.
We will go in-depth on the most commonly used yoga positions, how they should be performed correctly and how you as a teacher should adjust others. Knowledge of health benefits, modifications, and adaptations in case of injury. You will learn names in English and Sanskrit.
✔️ Meditation & Mindfulness
You will get a toolbox with powerful techniques and mantras that are not necessarily common in an ordinary yoga teacher education. We recommend daily meditation in the morning and/or evening during the training course and we will help you develop your personal meditation practice that you can take with you further.
✔️ Anatomy & Physiology
You will explore how the body works, and apply this important knowledge in safe and effective practice and teaching. For many, anatomy can be the scariest thing about a yoga education, but we will do our best to break it down as easily as possible.
✔️ The Chakra System
You will learn about the body’s energy field, which organs they belong to, and health benefits. Chakra literally means “spinning wheel”, and according to the yogic view, chakras are a symbiosis of energy, thoughts/feelings, and the physical body
The main philosophy of yoga is simple: mind, body, and spirit are all connected and cannot be separated. Yet there is a multitude of philosophical ideas developed by looking at the deeper dimensions of the body, mind, and spirit.
✔️ Breathing Techniques
Breath is the connection to life and the basis of all classical Hatha yoga practices. The breath has a profound effect on the nervous system and a profound effect on the quality of life, both on and off the yoga mat. You will learn breathing techniques that can be used in meditation, yoga practice, and various purposes such as relaxation or exhilaration.
✔️ Sequencing & Structuring
You will learn how to use the toolkit offered in the yoga system to create meaningful sequences. A good class is not just physically challenging with randomly composed asanas. With an intention and meaning in building and implementing the class, you will experience both more satisfied students and more joy in teaching.
✔️ Introduction to Ayurveda
A fascinating and practical science from ancient India that offers tools to better understand yourself and others therapeutically through the context of doshas, gunas, and prana.
✔️ Pedagogy & Teaching Techniques
We go in-depth on the most commonly used yoga positions, how they should be performed correctly and how you as a teacher should adjust others. Knowledge of health benefits, modifications, and adjustments in case of injury.
Getting help and support is just one click away! While some of you may be dreaming of attending a YTT in places like Bali – this period in time has given us groundbreaking new tools, and fundamental lessons… We are not bound by time and place to become great teachers… and the new tools actually let us support you better than ever before! So why not become a Yoga Teacher first – and then travel to Bali? 🙂

Another essential lesson is the significance of connection. Even with world-class training taking you step-by-step through the modules, this process was not supposed to take place in a vacuum. Sangha is a Sanskrit word that captures the essence of a spiritual community. In our weekly hangouts, you will connect with our Sangha. So you can share your experiences with like-minded people that are on the same journey as you.
And if you are shy, just turn off your camera – you will still feel a connection and find support in the community 💚
We also have a private Facebook community group where you can share your experience, get inspiration and ask questions.
Hangouts are not recorded – we want these conversations to be fresh, private, and “in the moment”.
Attending hangouts is not mandatory, but highly encouraged.
✔️ Connect with the community on weekly hangouts
✔️ Themed conversations led by the teachers
✔️ Get guidance from the community
Getting practice is an important part of your training. We encourage you to establish a daily practice! Attending our live-streamed classes is an excellent way of achieving that. You will join in with the teachers in a variety of classes that are held every week. In addition to getting more practice yourself, you will also be able to study the way they teach…
Inside the course platform, you will see the live-stream schedule in your own time zone. You simply book the classes you want to do and get reminders before they start. No other software or different login is needed.
You will get replays from the classes you book. You do not have to attend the classes live to get the replays.
Live classes are not mandatory.
✔️ Get practice on the mat with the teachers
✔️ Classes are streamed every week
✔️ Variety of different styles
Even before joining our teacher training, many people ask us about the exam. While this may vary from school to school, you do not need to fear the exam with us. Our take on the exam is that it should be something fun and uplifting. We firmly believe that you will be very well prepared after going through the course, and the exam is simply just a last “check” before we can hand over the certification to you! 🙂
The exam itself consists of theory and practice. The theory is a multiple choice quiz, and the practice is a 20 minute guided video class that you send to us.
The teacher training is hosted by The Shala Yoga & Mindfulness, which is a Registered Yoga School (RYS) with Yoga Alliance (YA). After completion of the theoretical and practical exam, you will be eligible to become a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT200) with Yoga Alliance.
Now that you are a Certified Yoga Teacher it is time to share your service with the world! Not everyone wants to go out in a “big way” with their practice. Some take the training mostly for their own part, and this is perfectly fine. But for those ready to actually become a professional – someone who makes a living by teaching – this is your section!
Here you will learn about marketing, social media, selling your services, and creating your website – so that you have a proven method of getting clients, and greatly increase your chances of being hired to teach in a Yoga studio.
We have been doing this for many years and this is a big passion for us… Because we know the impact learning these skills will have on your own life and the many lives you will touch! You can be a positive and uplifting source of energy in this world, you can do it for a living, and you can even make a great living by teaching Yoga 💚
And we want to show you how to do it effectively and ethically – coming from a heart-centered space.
✔️ The business of Yoga
✔️ How to market yourself
✔️ Creating your own brand
✔️ Basics of social media
✔️ Get your 5 first clients in 2 weeks (or less)

✔️ BONUS #2: The Asana Workbook
You will get high-res photos with Chloë showing the correct expression for each of the 42 poses that are covered in the course, with the English and Sanskrit name for each pose. Along with your own notes, this will become your personal “encyclopedia” to lookup in whenever you are unsure of the correct posture and alignment.
✔️ BONUS #3: Class Sequences
This is the holy grail of planning your classes, and immensely useful for new teachers fresh out of the course. With these 24 pre-made class sequences you will have everything you need to set up your first classes. Every sequence contains illustrations of the poses, names, timing, and cues!
