500-hour RYT Yoga Teacher Training with Aadil Palkhivala starting on the 12 September 2015.

We are happy to announce the first ever 500 hour Purna Yoga teacher training to be held in Europe. In fact, the first one ever to be held outside the Alive and Shine Center in Bellevue, WA, USA.
The course starts on the 12 September and is divided into three two week long segments (12 - 24 September 2015, 9 - 21 May 2016 and finally 3 -15 October 2016). It will entirely be taught by Aadil Palkhivala.

This is also a completely unique opportunity, since Aadil normally does not teach the full course! It is open to all teachers who have previously completed a 200 hour teacher training (not only in Purna Yoga).

Here a short message from Aadil:

The College of Purna Yoga offers the most holistic and detailed teacher trainings available. Created by worldrenowned yoga masters Aadil Palkhivala and Savitri, the college teaches how to live and teach yoga and meditation from the heart. Learn asana, pranayama, meditation, nutrition, applied philosophy, anatomy and physiology, speaking and presentation skills, teaching methodology and class control, adjustments, basic therapeutics, business and marketing, ethics, and much more. A 300 page manual written by Aadil Palkhivala is included in the price.

At the 200-hour Level you gain the knowledge, confidence and awareness that is essential for becoming an alignment-based yoga teacher. The course covers the foundational curriculum of Purna Yoga—alignment-based asana and pranayama, meditation, nutrition and applied yogic philosophy. You will emerge with the ability to teach a variety of classes; the confidence, caring and compassion that keeps your students safe and growing; and the inspiration that makes yoga a powerful tool for transformation. Be prepared to fall in love with your own personal yoga and meditation practice as well, since Purna Yoga awakens the joy of living from the heart.

As you learn the foundational curriculum, you will also explore:

  • Anatomy and physiology of asana and pranayama
  • How to see and understand bodies and give hands-on adjustments
  • The benefits and contraindications of asana and the use of props
  • How to deal with student's injuries and health conditions
  • The energetics of centering your mind and awakening your intuition
  • Delivery, presentation and class control, especially in teaching beginners
  • How nutrition and a yogic lifestyle affects your students, your teaching and life
  • Ethics, business, and the professional and energetic boundaries of teaching
  • How to apply timeless yogic philosophy to your classes and your daly life


Applicants must have an established asana practice (at least one year of 2-3 classes a week - or equivalent - in alignment-based yoga—any yoga system that emphasizes the alignment of the body in asana) prior to beginning the program. The strength of this foundation will support the entirety of the Teacher Training program.

For any questions please get in touch either through the contact page, by email at info(at)purnayoga.fi or by phone.


What previous students say:

I loved and enjoyed this teacher training to the fullest. As trainees we were guided by true experts and through their compassionate teaching I feel we could grow as a person and understand yoga on a deeper level, rather then just know how to teach a yoga class. The way the course was structured was just excellent. I feel very grateful for this wonderful opportunity having been part of this training. It was a gift indeed and so much fun!
