Unique Advantages of our
Yoga Therapy Greece Training

Our vision is to give the best Yoga Therapy Training possible and our graduates to be proud of their choice to study with us. Our philosophy is to empower our students to become the best version of themselves and for them to do the same for their clients, to facilitate their transformation from svabhava to their svarupa. By exploring the yogic tools for yourself through the assignments and by developing the most appropriate yoga therapy practice for you with personal guidance you transform to the best version of you and you gain faith in the power of yoga therapy to change lives.

The Online training is almost exactly the same with the live face to face program, however you do not have the cost of accommodation and flying/travel to Greece in the 1st year. We believe this gives our training the best value you can find. Even when compared to other similar online courses.

We have already given this online program with great success during 2020-2023 as you can read from the testimonials of our graduates who are now great IAYT Certified Yoga Therapists.

We have deliberately scheduled our 1st year Online training to be almost entirely over weekends to allow people to study around their work and other commitments.

We share most of the knowledge in the online weekends. Through the monthly webinars and through the assignments, case studies and practicum you learn how this knowledge is applied in practice and how to apply all the tools.

Film recordings are available of all the live online training sessions to enable students to go back over material for a whole month after each weekend and get the best from our teaching.

You uniquely have the opportunity to attend the residential program at the start of optional year 2 to become eligible for full Certification by the International Association of Yoga Therapy. Having the coveted title C-IAYT.

We limit the number of students to ensure you have the best possible supervision and mentoring from the start of the training to the end, given personally by Evi our Program director and lead instructor.

We sincerely share deep knowledge and huge experience integrating Yoga Therapy, Viniyoga (Krishnamacharya lineage), Tantra Yoga, Iyengar Restorative Yoga, Personalized Yoga Nidra & Meditation, Psychology, Neuroscience, the latest evidence-based practices through Research, Physiotherapy, Yoga Therapy for Scoliosis and chronic pain.

This unique integration is shared with passion by the leading instructor Evi Dimitriadou who is an experienced C-IAYT, who with the eyes of a yoga therapist concluded studies in Physiotherapy and in the Schroth method for scoliosis and is concluding a master’s in Psychology and Neuroscience of Mental Health at King’s College, London.

Due to this unique integration and huge experience in physical and mental health, our graduates are able to deliver safely and effectively yoga therapy in 1-2-1 and groups, for structural, mental health, women’s health and medical conditions and symptoms.

Every afternoon in the online weekends we practice group yoga therapy practices relative to the theme of the day (these are every morning in the 2nd year residential training). This means you take away with you more than 30 group / individual sequences that can be used for your own workshops. Including the very popular life changing Women’s Health and Mental Health practices.

Through our training and personal supervision you will learn to become your own yoga therapists which we believe is the best way for you to be a great therapist for others.

You will learn how to build a therapeutic relationship, how to give a motivational interview, how to ‘see’ people holistically, how to build personalized yoga therapy practices based on people’s goals and needs, using postural/movement and breathing observations, as well as all the Yoga and Ayurveda principles such as koshas, gunas, doshas vayus, choosing, incorporating and modifying all yoga tools such as asanas, pranayamas, yoga nidras, meditation, mantras etc.

Observation and Explanation of live Yoga Therapies.

Experience your own Yoga Therapy and take away a personal practice that is the most appropriate for you.

You receive comprehensive notes which when combined make up two well prepared Manuals of over 450 and 250 pages for the 1st and the 2nd year respectively to refer to and to support you for years.

A well selected updated Reading list that will further empower you as a professional Yoga Therapist.

Location of the 15 days Residential Yoga Therapy Training

The residential training takes place at a beautiful location on the northern slopes of mount Ziria in the Peloponnese area of Greece.

Helydorea Zen is a stone built guest house that used stone and wood from the local mountains. It is very distinct, with traditional decoration and attention to detail. It is created with respect of the natural environment and uses organic local products and business choices that support local farmers and reduce the carbon footprint of the house.

To get to the guest house from Athens or the airport you take a train for about €20 euros and then take a taxi for about €50 euros. Students can share travel information to reduce the cost of the taxi. Or you can share a transfer (coordinated by us) for the entire journey the price for which ranges from about €50 to €80.

On your days off you can share a 30 minute taxi journey to the sea for a swim, to have a meal etc. The taxi each way is about 25/30 euros.

Still have questions?
We have the answers!

Do I have to commit to Year 2 when I first enroll?

When you enrol you are only committing to Year 1 so you can decide as the course progresses if you would like to continue to complete the 805 hours training or just complete the 350 hours of Year 1. We recommend you take advantage of the early bird prices by giving a deposit for the second year by January 2025.

Do I need to be a Yoga Teacher to attend the course?

Yes. You will need to have completed the 200 hours of a Yoga Teacher Training programme and have one year’s experience. If you are unsure please get in touch.

When will I graduate and receive my certificates?

It takes about 12 months to complete the webinars, assignments, case studies and rest of practicum. So, you will graduate in summer 2025 for the 350 hours yoga therapy training. For the Yoga Therapy Training 805 hours you will graduate in September 2026. Graduation being dependant on completion to a pass standard the required coursework. Students must have also completed the required number of attendance hours.

What if I am unable to attend some of the webinars or online weekends?

Up to 30 hours can be missed from the Synchronous Distance Learning, although students must view the recording and complete the assessment for each topic missed.

Can you clarify the Accreditation of the Yoga Therapy Training IAYT application?

By concluding the 1st year training, you will take the Advanced Teacher Training Certificate for Yoga Alliance titled ‘Adapting Yoga for Everyone’ which you can then add to your 200 hour certificate to register with Yoga Alliance as a 500-hour Yoga Teacher – RYT-500. The certification of the 350 hours Yoga Therapy Training issued is not accredited by any association or board. The 350 hours Yoga Therapy Greece Training forms part of the Yoga Therapy Training 805 hours. The 805 hours training is accredited by IAYT. (https://www.iayt.org/). Once you have completed the 805 hours accredited training you are then eligible to apply to IAYT to take their multiple choice exam (for which you will be fully prepared) and achieve full C-IAYT.

Why can’t the 350 hours training be accredited by IAYT?

IAYT has extremely high standards and accredits only a minimum 805 hours training.

What if I decide not to complete the assignments, case studies and webinars?

In this case we can issue a Certificate of Attendance with the number of hours concluded only. However, we highly recommend that you complete all of the course as the assignments, case studies and practicum are a large part of the learning process, especially considering the personal mentoring that that you will receive. You also will lose the possibility of using this 350 hour training as a foundation of the 805 hour training.

What if I decide not to complete the 88-hour practicum?

Then you will be issued 262 hours of certification of attendance.

How does the supervision take place?

The personal supervision takes place through emails and online meetings. As soon as you send your clients completed Yoga Therapy questionnaire or practices you will get an email with guidelines and then we meet one to one online where we will explain the rationale and establish practices together. After the evaluation of your case study summary/write up, you will also receive feedback as supervision.

How many assignments are there?

In total you will have 10 assignments well spread in the 2 years training. For every assignment you get detailed feedback as tutorial support for your personal and professional development.

How can I work as a Yoga Therapist?

Upon completion of the 350-hour Yoga Therapy Training you can have your own private Yoga Therapy Clinic and give 1-2-1 sessions or work with therapeutic groups. Our graduates also work in Yoga Studios or in a complimentary capacity in health care centres, physiotherapy centres, and community centres in collaboration with homoeopathists, physiotherapists, psychotherapists, nutritionists etc. But you would have to check your countries specific requirements for certain health care jobs.

What if I have to leave for some reason in the middle of the summer training?

You are then welcome to join us the following year to complete your training. But unfortunately, we cannot refund the accommodation costs or the tuition.

As lunch is not included what are my options?

For lunch the local tavern offers a reasonable priced option of a light snack/lunch. Alternatively before you arrive you can buy fruits, bread, nuts etc.

What other costs am I likely to incur?

In addition to the ‘what is not included’ list above a student must buy their own study materials and have access to a computer or tablet with a good internet connection. You need to be able to convert documents to PDF.rnYou might need to print the manual sent to you in advance of the residential training in order for you to read it and be better prepared for the training. You will require about €60-80 for two books for your assignments.
