Here is an overview of the module topics, teachers, dates and descriptions of our full 300-Hr. Advanced Teacher Training program. Modules can also be booked individually. If you are interested, please contact us at info@peaceoutyoga.de.


Founded in the teachings of B.K.S Iyengar, restorative yoga offers students many benefits to the physical, emotional, and mental body.

In this module, students will gain a deeper understanding of how to create a personal practice for themselves and how to structure restorative yoga classes for different audiences of students.

Topics include: history, philosophy, background and benefits of restorative yoga. Yama and Niyama Principles in Restorative Yoga. Physiological, emotional and mental effects, setting intentions, preparing the body – with dynamic yoga poses and relaxation techniques, effective breathing and pranayama techniques, effective supports for different bodies, demonstration of poses in the studio and in online courses, student support – verbal, physical, energetic, effective teaching voice – Words and the power of silence, student emotions arising and how to deal with them, structuring different Restorative theme classes, practicing and guiding the 6 Restorative Yoga categories and the importance of a Restorative Yoga practice for teachers .


In this module, trainees will learn about the functions and location of many internal organs, as well as how the nervous system works and sub-divides into pathways based on location and function.

The students also learn how the internal organs and the nervous system work together and influence each other.

Finally we go through the aspects of the energy body and what similarities we can find between the yogic texts on the energy body and western medicine’s knowledge of the nervous and endocrine systems.

Once we understand how these systems work, we can see how we can support mental and physical well-being with yogic practices. The trainees are introduced to these topics with a 2-hour lecture each day, as well as easy to understand and accessible yoga practices tailored to these topics. These practices include kriyas, pranayama, asanas and meditation. We also adapt hands-on adjustments and partner work to make all this new information part of the daily toolbox that trainees can use when teaching.


The word “tantra” is associated by many in western society with spiritual sexuality, which is only a very small part. Tantra basically means “to change our energy” and Tantra Advaita is the central philosophy of the ancient tradition of Tantra Yoga.

It is also the knowledge of the non-dual energy of the Self.

When we think, read, or hear someone talk about the Self, we get a taste of pure being quite easily. This taste is experienced as a blissful feeling, which is an energy, but when the lecture is over or the book has been read, the blissful feeling is easily lost. When that special sense of pure being is lost, pure being itself is perceived as lost.

Tantra Advaita teaches us to understand and use these “changes” to bring back… and keep the unique energy of the Self.

This module provides you and your students with insight and practice on how to find your way back to the Self through conscious change in your energy and the means by which you can sustain the sense of Self within your energy.

Topics include: An Introduction to Tantric Advaita, Guided Meditation on Self Awareness, The Soul’s Spiritual Journey, The Power of Sound, Guided Chanting, The Power of Space, The Relaxation of Elements and Senses, The Power of Prana, Guided Pranayama, Rasa Sadhana in Integral Yoga, developing your rhythm, the meditation process and a question and answer session. Upon completion of this module you will have a deeper understanding of tantric advaita and how it energizes the practice of nonduality so that you can truly enjoy life in pure being.


This module is about learning about yoga injuries and how to prevent them through body reading & healthy movement practices.

The focus is on the shoulder girdle, spine and knees.

The focus here is first to review the functional anatomy and mechanical relationships of these body parts. More emphasis is then placed on the individual’s understanding of potential biomechanical vulnerabilities & enhancing the yoga student’s daily routine to prevent injury.

Knowing this, attending students will learn how to minimize the risk of yoga injuries for themselves and their students by strengthening these weak points through functional training methods that incorporate a mix of theory and hands-on practical approaches.

Ultimately, each student attending this module aims to provide the tools to assess their student’s risk of injury by assessing their functional status through static and dynamic observation and standard clinical tests that can be used in yoga classes and yoga privates.


As the oldest system of medicine in the world, Ayurveda is the sister science of yoga and a life science promoting healing, health and longevity.

This module is about exploring the world of Ayurveda and understanding the basics so that attending students can apply and practice Ayurveda more effectively in their personal lives and adapt it to yoga classes via the “Ayuyoga” principles.

Topics discussed and practiced in this module include: History & Philosophy of Ayurveda, 5 Elements, 3 Doshas – Vata, Pitta & Kapha and how to recognize their energies and qualities, 3 Gunas – what are they and how to interpret them , discover your own dosha constitution, sub-doshas, ​​3 pillars of the disease – nutrition, sleep, daily life, balancing the doshas, ​​Ayurveda & nutrition with the 6 tastes of Ayurveda, the stages of the disease according to Ayurveda, diagnostic tools & daily routines for well-being.

All of this is presented in a way to improve an attending student’s Ayurveda knowledge, their daily well-being as well as that of their yoga class students.


In this in-depth 4-day training, you will be provided with the skills to both better understand their own Yoga Nidra practice and to lead others with a heightened sense of knowledge, confidence and creativity.

You will experience first-hand how Yoga Nidra inspires and enlivens life. With many forms of yoga nidra evolving from the original version, a traditional approach to learning and practicing yoga nidra is discussed and practiced that utilizes the 5 sheaths known as Koshas in yoga.

In this traditional method, 8 unique stages of Yoga Nidra and their relationship to your koshas are explained. Students are guided first to understand, then to experience, and finally to guide other students safely through a Yoga Nidra practice.

This training uses visual, auditory, and kinesthetic methods to help students understand concepts more easily, making it suitable for all learning styles. A full list of topics covered in this training can be found here.


This module will cover explanations of breath control and some of the precautions students should be aware of.

Theoretical and practical aspects of breath control will also be the focus. Below is a detailed overview of the theory topics covered:

Functions of breathing and possible effects of respiratory regulation, effects of hyperventilation (breathing more than normal) and hypoventilation (breathing less than normal), breathing in yoga postures and other movements, The 12th “Bridges” between the conscious and unconscious and how to use them during breath control, spinal breathing (learning how to use the entire core of the body to breathe), understanding the kriyas, mudras and bandhas of traditional hatha yoga and traditional pranayama.

Practical exercises include: re-learning natural breathing in simple to complex postures and simple spinal movements, basic breath control exercises without complex muscle activations (breathing cycles between 20 and 60 seconds in length). Individual learning to lengthen and improve inhalation, exhalation and breath holding, breath control exercises with an emphasis on breath holding and the use of Mueller maneuvers (use of Bandha in the Nauli Kriya cycle of Indian Hatha Yoga), Intermediate to Advanced Breath control exercises that include the emphasis on inhalation breath holding and the use of Valsalva maneuvers (breath cycles between 30 and 60 seconds in length) how to approach more advanced breath control exercises that emphasize both exhalation and inhalation, breath retention and using Mueller maneuvers and Valsalva maneuvers (breath cycles up to 120 seconds in length), strengthening the pelvic floor with breath control, understanding the 6 Kriyas of Hatha Yoga and how to easily approach using the spine.

Movements to complex paths as used in the next section in Shakti Chalani Pranayama and combinations of hyperventilation and hypoventilation (rapid overbreathing followed by prolonged breath holding) with the possible incorporation of bandhas and nauli kriya (Shakti Chalani Pranayama). Time is spent recognizing where the participating students are presently in their breathing and pranayama practice and adjusting this module accordingly.


In this module, attending students will learn techniques to make yoga classes a larger part of their lives and ultimately make a living from it.

On this journey into yoga self-employment, topics such as business planning, calculation, sales, marketing and other relevant topics are presented and discussed interactively.

Opportunities and risks of self-employment as a yoga teacher and the tasks associated with teaching are discussed. Self-employment for yoga teachers (trainers, mini-jobs, small businesses, freelancers or commercial) is also discussed. Basic business knowledge is taught and the students receive valuable and relevant information on legal, tax and insurance options (this event does not include personal tax advice) as well as an insight into travel law in connection with yoga retreats.

The aim of this module is for yoga teachers to work with a solid structure, clarity, joy and satisfaction.


How do I give my yoga class that special something?

How do I engage and inspire my students? Where do I get inspiration from?

How do I design an engaging Dharma Talk and incorporate it into the classroom?

What does “creative sequencing” mean?

How do I plan my lessons in a time-saving, efficient and sustainable way?

How do I make my lessons meaningful, safe and engaging?

How do I adapt my lessons to different target groups (e.g. different levels) without great effort?

How do I focus on the different levels in mixed classes?

How do I work meaningfully towards a target pose (Maha pose)?

How do I find the right framework for my lessons?

In this module, we will go into these and other questions about planning Vinyasa Flow classes. The intent is not to pass on any particular type of sequencing as universal, but to share fundamental ideas, tips, and values ​​that can be applied to different types of lesson planning, designed to help students and teachers have inspiring, meaningful, and sustainable classroom experiences.

Each day begins with the practice of a thematically clearly defined and meaningfully structured lesson and its breakdown. Following this, students and teachers share previous teaching experiences and sequencing methods, and review the basic building blocks of Vinyasa Yoga sequencing and the teaching methodology for group classes.

The basic sequencing taught in Peace Out Yoga’s 230-hour Immersion & Teacher Training is briefly reviewed and then a method for freer and more creative sequencing of classes with a specific goal/climax and pose (Maha Pose) presented.

In addition to space for exchange and discussion, a high proportion of practical work will be part of this module. In addition to the pure “tools” with which teachers can plan the lesson, time is also spent on implementation (example: applications in the classroom).


In this module, students complete a certified Pre-Natal Yoga Teacher Training. Accompanying women during the special time of pregnancy, watching their bellies grow week after week and looking forward to the birth is fun and exciting.

With a yoga class, you as a teacher can alleviate pregnancy symptoms, offer women a small oasis in which they have more pregnancy space, reduce fears and strengthen self-confidence.

Through breathing and relaxation exercises learned through yoga, women can help themselves during childbirth, which is particularly helpful in times of midwife shortage, when the birthing woman is often left alone.

Topics related to pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum round off this module and make each individual class a very special experience.

The anatomical, gynecological and psychological background knowledge that you will receive in this training, together with applications and knowledge of lesson planning, gives you the necessary security to plan and teach yoga classes in a pregnancy-friendly manner.


“A key goal in adapting and supporting students is to adapt the yoga posture to the body and not the body to the posture.” – Quote.

This is an important foundation that you need to understand and practice for yourself and with students. As yoga teachers, we must first understand the difference between an assist and an adjustment. Once this is understood, we need to know when to apply an assist or adjustment to a student.

This decision must take into account things such as a student’s build, age, past and present physical and mental conditions, and a teacher’s level of experience. We want to develop a positive teacher-student relationship.

This can be accomplished by considering four factors: intimacy between teacher and student, trust, timing, and how “in their body” a student is, or how much kinesthetic intelligence they have. When a teacher goes too deep in a student’s adjustment, the risk of negatively affecting that student’s yoga experience in the future increases, especially if the four factors are not followed. Assist or adjust with understanding, mindfulness, and compassion, and the student will connect more deeply with their “inner teacher” because of your thoughts and actions as a teacher. The more effectively a teacher can guide a student to connect with their “inner teacher” through appropriate assisting and adjusting, the more positive impact this will have on fostering a student’s transformation into a life with a deeper sense of Ahimsa (being gentle) and Satya (Truthfulness), which ultimately guides them on the path to the realization of their essence. Yes, mindful assisting and adjusting can create this kind of chain reaction in your student.

Topics covered in this module are: Supporting and Adjusting Definitions, Differences and Reasons, Review of Supporting and Adjusting Basics, Preparing and Building Relationships with Students Before Classes Begin, Safe Movement for Yoga Assistants, Approaching and Withdrawing from students, effective communication of assists for different learning styles of students – visual, auditory, kinesthetic, effective verbal cues support. (Talk & Practice), Observing, Assisting and Adjusting Intermediate to Advanced – Standing and Core-Based postures, Arm Balances and Inversions, Backbend Postures, Seated and Back Twists and Forward Bend Postures. Time will also be given to support and accommodate hyper-flexible students and students with specific musculoskeletal conditions such as knock knees and bowlegs.


In order to receive the certificate of completion, the attending student must fulfill the following:

Final practical exam in preparing and conducting a 45-minute class or workshop on a topic agreed upon with the lead teacher. Passing the practical final exam.

Submission of a written thesis (DIN A4, 5-8 pages, Arial, font size 11, line spacing 1.5), in which the topic of the practical final exam is theoretically prepared. Passing the final written exam.


The teacher training team lead a yoga class with the attending students. This is followed by the graduation ceremony and certificate awarding in-studio.
