• Equip yourself with the tools to confidently share your knowledge as a certified yoga teacher.

Throughout your 200-hour YTTC, you will learn two distinct but complementary styles of yoga – Orion Vinyasa Flow and Yin Yoga. These two styles in combination will bring balance to your practice by combining an active (Yang) and a passive (Yin) practice. Restorative Yoga is a meditative yoga practice with slow, gentle and rocking movements. You will learn how to create a sequence that is deeply nourishing and guide students in a gentle transition from one asana (pose) to another by flowing seamlessly into a relaxing, deeply de-stressing and contemplative practice.
Through breath, the rhythm of the count and movement you will build a deep focus which manifests as a state of tranquility in the mind. Get to know the art of vinyasa flow (Tristana), learn perfect alignment in each pose and discover the joy of teaching challenging transitions so that you feel confident enough to guide your students on their path towards a real understanding of the Yoga practice on and off the mat. Experience dynamic meditation through movement and find an equilibrium between mind, body, and soul. Learn the art of intuitive touch and technical adjustment and understand how bodywork can become a vehicle for spiritual transformation.

Lead Teacher – Ewa Juszczyk
Ewa has been practicing yoga for 16 years, and teaching since 2004. Her yoga journey began with Iyengar Yoga in 2000 when she studied with Geeta Iyengar. Her yoga journey continued when she discovered Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and studied under Authorized Level II Teacher, Basia Lipska. Further studies brought her to Mysore to study with BNS Iyengar in 2012. The same year, Ewa studied intensively with Kamal Singh in Rishikesh, India.
Other authorized teachers Ewa has studied with are: Maty Ezraty, Tim Feldman, Petri Reisenen, Noah McKenna, Ajay Tokas, Kino MacGregor, and Bela Lipat. Over the years, she continued her yogic studies of Yin, Vinyasa, Pranayama, Yoga Philosophy, Alignment, Slow Flow, and Flex. Recently Ewa runs the Ashtanga Mysore Program at Yoga Maya and Yoga Therapy Programs for Dancers and Musicians at Codarts in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
Ewa views her yogic practice as Art, Philosophy, and Science. She personally follows the dictum that to be a teacher, one must first be a student, and knows the greatest lessons a teacher can learn come from experience with a variety of situations and students. She believes that as a teacher, it is essential to stay open to the continuous learning process, be aware of opportunities for growth, and practice with gratitude.
Philosophy – Swami Pujan
Swami Pujan (Stephan Kahlert) is a German-born Psychologist who studied Yoga Philosophy (Jnana Yoga) in India and Australia for many years. He received the title of “Swami” after initiation with his teacher, Bhagavan Shree Rajneesh, who is a world-renowned spiritual guide and teacher from Puma, India. Through his first teacher, he continues to transmit the message that spirituality is a joyful journey, filled with passion and the celebration of life. After the passing of his teacher in 1990, Swami Pujan pursued his interest in studying Theravada Buddhism and teaching Vipassana Meditation Retreats in Australia and New Zealand, as well as studying Soto Zen Buddhism under the Japanese master, Hogen Daido Yamahata.
In Australia, he was the staff teacher at Byron Yoga Center for over ten years and facilitated seminars and retreats all over Asia and Europe. He currently resides on Koh Phangan with his wife, sharing his knowledge in a very approachable way for Western students. His teaching style is fun and engaging, and he has the ability to explain complex Eastern philosophical concepts in an easy-to-grasp way for people of all levels.
Course Co-Ordinator & Assistant Teacher – Ben Makosch
For Ben, yoga has been a practice that very quickly became a passion, and soon after a way of life. His practice started in 2008 with Iyengar Yoga under Joey Mascarenhas in Zurich. Joey’s precise style, teaching, and careful guidance set Ben upon his path. After three years of Iyengar Yoga, he felt ready to dive deeper into yoga and to embark on a journey that would lead him to becoming a teacher.
Swapping his career in club management for a full time life on the yoga mat, Ben completed an intensive Hatha Yoga Training in Thailand and began his teaching journey. The instructions he experienced during his training were deep and profound, which inspired him to completely shift his lifestyle in a more healthy and sustainable direction.
His passion for yoga then took him to New York City to an anatomy-based, physical Vinyasa training. With these indepth studies of two uniquely different styles of yoga, he honed his skills and combined the modern aspects of Vinyasa Flow with the more traditional forms of Hatha Yoga – energy/chakra-balancing and meditative yoga.
Explaining the true meanings of asana, pranayama, and energy movement in a comprehensive way, Ben helps the practitioner understand the specific emotions or internal vibrations that are commonly triggered in each posture. Fusing these styles of yoga Ben offers a fresh approach to the ever changing forms of a modern-day yoga class which is designed for the benefit of practitioners on all levels. He strives to present yoga in its spiritual, scientific, and pure form in a way that is transparent and accessible for the variety of practitioners today, creating a blend of slow spiritual traditions from the East with the fast-flowing forms of yoga in the West.
