What does that include?


Join the world's only yoga teacher training offered in collaboration with a Tibetan Buddhist Monastery in the tiny Himalayan republic of Nepal. The training, offered by Heather Elton with Mahalaya Retreats, provides top-quality 200 hours Hatha and Vinyasa teacher training certification, and brings you to the place where the founder of Tibetan Buddhism attained enlightenment.

The course will be taught by leading international teachers Heather Elton, Emil Wendel and anatomist Andrew McGonigle, with special teachings from Rinpoche Pema Nangdrol, and invites students to live within a Tibetan monastery complex, with daily practice and study in the temple overlooking the rice paddies of the Kathmandu Valley—dwarfed by the awesome Himalayas and under the inspiring presence of Neydo’s 36-foot Buddha.

Certified by Yoga Alliance, this Vinyasa/Hatha 200-hour TTC will offer the highest levels of training in teaching, philosophy, anatomy and deep personal practice, and is a unique opportunity to study in the Kathmandu Valley where students will also visit some of Nepal’s most sacred temples, stupas and sites. 

This Level 1 training provides an overview of different aspects of yoga. It’s designed to give you a taste of what it means to be a yoga teacher and practitioner. By the end of the training you will:

  • have developed a skilful and varied asana practice;
  • understand basic yoga philosophy in a way you can integrate into your teachings;
  • understand basic anatomy and alignment so you can prevent injuries in your students and yourself;
  • have taken steps towards a genuine spiritual practice;
  • have had an experience that will provide you lifelong inspiration and context to practice and teach yoga;
  • be able to make an informed decision about what aspects of yoga you like, and what you want to practice and teach.
