About this trip

Embark on a transformative journey with our hybrid (online and in-person) Yoga Teacher Training program. Beginning with online lectures in late October 2024, you can start your journey from anywhere in the world. We prepared for you pre-recorded classes which you can complete at your own pace and rewatch for deeper understanding. Complementary to that, we will also offer bi-weekly livestreams to connect and answer any questions. For the duration of the training, all participants will have access to Sara’s and Lenka’s online platforms with hundreds of pre-recorded classes and weekly livestreams. The online portion of the training will be followed by a 11-night, 12-day in-person immersion in India, the birthplace of yoga.

Training requirements:

We require that all students have prior yoga experience of at least 1 year, and are committed to deepening their practice. Please note that some students that attend our teacher training simply wish to deepen their practice and do not intend to teach immediately. This is fine with us, as what matters more to us is a student’s dedication, commitment to personal empowerment and openness to learning.

Yoga Alliance is considered the international standard for yoga teachers and yoga schools worldwide. This certification will allow you to be recognized as a professional yoga teacher all around the world.

The location and accommodation was amazing, and our teachers were devoted, and provided us their bests. We had tasty vegetarian food and 5 days packed with training programs. The practical training was very advanced, challenging and I learnt a lot in those aspects, however I was missing some more in-depth and better explanations on the theoretical side. I loved the photoshoots and the discussions on finding your voice and starting your teaching career.

The Wild Wisdom women's retreat was one of the best experiences of my life. Absolutely breath-taking scenery in an unbelievable location in Ibiza. The singing, the yoga classes, the ceremonies, the rituals, the dancing, all the emotions, each and every connection created with the amazing participants and all the great adventures will stay with me forever! The absolute Yin and Yang energy between our two lovely trainers, Sara and Klaudia, made this retreat to exceed any of my expectations. Sara and Klaudia, if you two are planning a future retreat together, please, already sign me in! If you are not planning one, you should ;) Thank you for these amazing experience!

I had a lovely course at Svata Mari - The atmosphere was beautiful, with calm lovely animals outside the window. The course was very intense and informative! It had both hard information and yoga practice but also lovely warm gatherings with the most wonderful yogis. The yoga classes were of great quality and also challenging. I loved the sauna and wellness area with cold plunges!!! And the ecstatic dancing :) Thank you so much!!!

I had wonderful time at Dvur Svata Mari. Very nice place with best people working there - food was amazing. Training itself was good planned. We learned a lot, but also had enough time to know each other a little bit, have fun together - taking pictures, going for a walk... I had such a good time I decided to take part at another training hold by Sara and Lenka. Thank you again for making this experience possible, I'm looking forward to come back😊
