Copenhagen Yoga educational program

WHY STUDY WITH COPENHAGEN YOGA?
Being a yoga teacher is the most noble profession in the world. When you teach yoga to others, your students will put their mental and physical health, as well as their open heart and spirit in YOUR hands. For many, being in a yoga class means opening up, being vulnerable, and discovering new depths of their own existance. We know how important this is. Just like you wouldn't put your physical or mental health in the hands of a doctor or psychologist who finished their education by taking a quick course. Yoga is more powerful form of therapy than most people realise, and to be able to provide others with this therapy, you need to be qualified. Just doing yoga doesn't give you the same knowledge as years of dedicated, specialised teacher training do.
The main reason you migh want to choose Mette Oerum and Copenhagen Yoga to guide you on your yoga immersion journey is because quality is our number one driver. In everything with do, we put utmost passion, knowledge and detail, and we never take shortcuts. To speak frankly, if your goal is to quickly become a yoga teacher in order to earn quick money, there are many training programs that are shorter than ours, and they are probably a better choice for you. Mette has dedicated her whole life to yoga, and it is her promise to herself and others to never offer inadequate yoga lesson or a teacher program just to follow the latest trends.
Just like any fine craft, yoga too needs time, patience, perseverance and a lot of practice to master. By having the same number of lecturing hours stretched through a longer period of time, you will be able to grow and mature in your own yoga practice.
Here at Copenhagen Yoga, we do things little differently. After our successful three-year training programs is coming to and end, and we have listened to the feedback. Therefore, from 2020, our new immersion education program will come in 2 parts, which will allow us to make it cheaper and more accessible to anyone interested. This puts you in charge of the level you want to acheive, and for dedicated students, there will always be options for further progress.
WHO CAN JOIN
Every three years, we begin a new season of teacher education. One season contains 4 levels of training programs and lasts approximately 3 years.
Anyone with 6 months of yoga experience can join when the season starts. This means if you have continuously practised yoga for a minimum of 6 months, you can join our Fundamental Training 1, and afterwards decide how far you want to take your progress.
If you have already completed a teacher training somewhere else, and wish to join the season after it has begun, without doing our Fundamental Training 1, you should get in contact with Mette, our founder, and the person in charge of the education. You will then together find the best starting point for you.
