let yoga be free

*free of bullshit

Yoga Teacher Training in Berlin

The freistil Yoga Teacher Training course is built upon following core value:

Let Yoga be free!


Free of dogma, free of antiquated attitudes, free of discrimination, free of limitations of brands and styles. Demystify Yoga, get to the essence of the teachings and update it with evidence-based science wherever possible.


There is no point blindly following what is written in ancient scripts which were written in a context of entirely different times. Of course, knowing the rich history and philosophy of yoga is an important corner stone in the fundament of every yoga teacher. To paraphrase Zen master: regarding philosophy especially, it would be a mistake to confuse the means with the goal.

There is no sense in following one fits all anatomy guidelines. There are a few general principles which are valid in most situations, but the importance of everyone’s individual anatomy can’t be emphasized enough. This is why our training puts a very strong emphasis and the physical aspects. Since the majority of classes, you will teach will involve movement, you’ll need to be 100% certain what you are doing. Our training will get you there.

By following these principles you’ll get the knowledge to make informed decisions and be on top of your yoga game and become an excellent teacher.

Upcoming Dates:

Due to Covid-19 we're postponing and hope to offer a teacher training again in the beginning of 2022.
