2020 DATES: March 1 – 29,  October 1 – 29 

LOCATION: 

YogaKoh is offering an amazing opportunity for you to experience your teacher training on the pristine and awe-inspiring coast of Northeast New Zealand. 

‘The Farm’ is a 1000 acre idyllic country setting nestled far away from any busy city center on the Northeast coast of New Zealand, filling the gap between the stunning Whangaruru harbor and the mighty Russell forest. 

Surrounded by arguably the most beautiful and untouched beaches of  New Zealand, our location is a beautiful getaway for anyone treasuring harmony, connection, creativity, and joy, in the lap of mother nature. 

ABOUT YOGAKOH: 

YogaKoh teacher trainings follow the highest standard in yoga education. They are designed to help you understand and reach your highest potential. This one month, residential training offers a certification at the 200hr level that enables you to register as an internationally-recognized yoga teacher through Yoga Alliance. Our trainings are held at some of the most beautiful locations on the planet, offering you the most sincere life-enriching experience. 

What sets YogaKoh apart is our strong focus on anatomy and our ability to seamlessly blend the philosophy of the East with the most up to date research from the West. 

We deliver this in a way that easy to understand and pass on to your students. Becoming a teacher with YogaKoh is becoming a teacher with a difference. 

We are setting a new standard of yoga education making sure our students are ready and capable of passing on this practice safely. 

You’ll learn about how yoga affects your nervous system, how it can protect your joints when done with care, why we sequence the way we do, what to look out for in your students and how to prevent injuries. 

We will encourage you to find your full potential and we can ensure our students leave the training fully equipped to teach. 

Find out for yourself why this is a training with a difference. We laugh, share, grow and learn together. You might come on your own, but trust us, you will leave as part of a koh-mmunity.
