Parimukti Ethos

Parimukti Yoga & Meditation School is dedicated to teaching yoga and meditation to every single individual who wants to explore this wonderful ancient science in-depth. Parimukti Yoga is the path to freedom through realisation of what is and our ‘being’. Using the teachings and practices of the yoga tradition we go on an explorative journey to understanding the nature of our body-mind, the world around us, and investigate the relationship between us and that world. Gaining clarity about our conditioned beliefs allows us to live in freedom and joy.

Teaching yoga is an art fuelled by authenticity and creativity. Your personal practice and realisations that follow from that spark your inner teacher and sharing with others will come naturally.

Parimukti acknowledges that every student, and teacher, has his or her own unique presence, energy, and teaching style. We provide an environment for your learning and practice process, where yoga will be presented and practiced in depth.

In our teacher training programs, we proceed from the physical body (asanas/body postures) to the energy body, the mind and world around us. The Parimukti 200 hours Teacher Training, together with the Parimukti 300 hours Teacher Training is what gives you the foundational ground, connection and steadiness, enabling you to explore the endless possibilities of life.

Philosophy of Parimukti 200 Hours Yoga Teacher Training

In the 200 Hours Yoga Teacher Training we will study historical development of the philosophy of yoga and explore the body-mind – that what we usually refer to as ‘ourselves’. In the 300 Hours we will explore the relationship between ourselves and the world further. In this training we are inspired by the teachings of Krishnamacharya, which is reflected in the fact that the hatha yoga asana practice cannot be pinpointed to one particular style. Morning classes are mostly focused on developing bodily awareness, strength, flexibility while focusing on bodily alignment. The afternoons have a more restorative and yin character. Practices like asana, breath awareness, basic pranayamas, kriyas (cleansing techniques), mantras and meditation, will be presented and practiced within the course from the very beginning. Also we acknowledge the different bodily and mental constitutions, by giving a brief introduction to Ayurveda.

In this phase you will experience the relation between the body and the mind. By strengthening and stretching the physical body you will experience effects in your mental/emotional body, and vice versa. Starting from the most tangible in this 200 hours training we will proceed to the most subtle in the 300 hours training: from the physical body to the energy body, to the mind.

When you have accomplished this training with commitment and dedication, you will feel confident to share with others what you have learned through self-investigation and self-practice.

Course Curriculum The curriculum presented in the 200 hours training will give you a clear insight into the most relevant aspects of a hatha yoga practice in its broader approach.

Your practice is your foundation, your real teacher. In the training, you will commit to daily practicing asana, pranayama and meditation. Your practice will integrate into your personality, will open your mind and your heart and this will bring you to higher states of awareness. What you practice, you will understand. What you understand, you will be able to teach.

You’ll practise asana, pranayama techniques and different meditations 2-6 hours every day. Since a Parimukti training is demanding and challenging physically and mentally, we find it important to have a good balance between more dynamic physical practice and classes to restore and rejuvenate (yin, yoga nidra, restorative).

A variation of different pranayama techniques is integrated in our your daily practice. Consequently you will become familiar with key verbal instructions, function, benefits and contra-indications of the most important pranayamas. At the end of the program you will have integrated these practices and, thus, will be able to incorporate pranayama into your teaching, as well.

Meditation is a very important element of Parimukti trainings. In this 200 hours training you’ll develop an understanding of what meditation is and how other aspects of a yoga practise traditionally are used to prepare ourselves for moving deeper into gaining insight into ourselves and our relationship with the world. You will be introduced to meditation techniques like vipassana, dance meditation, dynamic meditation, buddhist meditations, etc. Also, every student can choose to have a day in silence during the course. This day you will receive teachings and practices silently, allowing yourself to observe your body-mind closely.

You will be introduced to chanting mantras. You’ll learn some of the most important mantras and understand by experience how sound can positively charge oneself and the environment. A couple of kirtan evenings are spontaneously organised to experience the joy of singing freely together!

You will have a daily alignment class, in which you learn the most essential asana postures addressing their alignment. These classed include Sanskrit and English names, key verbal, function, basic hands-on adjustments, benefits and contra-indications. All types of asana are covered: standing, standing balancing, sitting poses (forward bends and twists) forward bends, supine, backbending, core awakening, arm balance and inversions.


Proper understanding of anatomy is crucial for a yoga (asana) teacher. During this course you will study the functional applied anatomy of the major joints (knee joint, hip joint, shoulder joint, and spine), fundamental bones and basic muscles throughout the course. This will help you to understand and identify differences in students and corresponding needs.

We will introduce you to the subtle bodies: the yogic anatomy of chakras, nadis, kriyas, mudras, bandhas and koshas. This will help you to more fully understand the process and benefits of yoga.

You will gain insight into the evolution of yoga from the Vedic to these modern times. We guide you in how to apply yoga philosophy in your yoga practice, your teachings, and most importantly, in your everyday life. The foundational philosophy is mostly based on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, with a particular focus on the 8 limbs of yoga.

You will receive an introduction to the pillars of the science of Ayurveda. Yoga and Ayurveda are like inseparable siblings. The combination of these two sciences bring forth a system of healing, for physical, mental, and spiritual health and happiness.

Teaching is a great medium to learn about yourself and others.  Therefore, you will be asked to work with the other students, in groups, on teaching assignments from the very beginning. Our teachers will give you practical tools and constructive feedback that will help you grow rapidly and confidently. The Art of Teaching classes are a great platform where you can integrate what you have learned in the alignment, anatomy and philosophy classes. Above all you will be invited and challenged to find yóur unique way of teaching a class.

EXTRA’S An intensive yoga teacher training is a deeply transforming experience for each individual student. Therefore, we offer in-depth guidance and equip you with many skills for the journey of discovering your own innate nature and truth. For students with special interests we offer a mentor program which gives you personal guidance throughout the training. Also, after the training we can help you to set up your own center and mentor you on your further growth. And last but not least. Studying and spending almost a month with like-minded people will certainly will support you in a sense of community, camaraderie, and friendship.

  • Preferably you have practiced yoga steadily for a minimum of 1 year with a teacher
    You are willing to make a commitment of 4 weeks of studying and practicing yoga in depth
  • You have a serious interest in both practicing and teaching yoga and meditation. You might discover your love for teaching after doing this in-depth study
  • You are looking for a life transforming experience and ready to work hard on self-growth
  • You are interested in gaining understanding of your body-mind
  • You are willing to learn from fellow teachers and students as well as share your own wisdom
  • You want to study in a small group(max 15 students per class) to get maximum feedback from every teacher and make the training a personal journey above all
  • If you are an absolute beginner we recommend you to join the yoga teacher training course for a longer period of time; for example repeating the course at nominal cost so that you pickup a strong foundation and in depth knowledge of yoga and understanding meditation as it works for yourself. It is our understanding that you will gain a deep understanding and knowledge, and even a certificate to teach, but the true body wisdom, empathy and experience can only come from a sustained practice. A longer leisurely course will create a powerful physical, mental and spiritual transformation in yourself.
