Yoga Teacher Training - FAQs
Join us in our Matsya Studio located in Florianigasse 16, 1080 Wien, which serves as our home base for this yoga teacher training. We welcome students from all over Europe, and as such, the training will be conducted in English to accommodate yogis from all corners of the world.
Our 300-hour Hatha and Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training can be completed in an intensive 5-week course. For those residing in Vienna, we offer an individual schedule that can be customized to fit their specific needs and lifestyle, and the training can be completed throughout the year.
We've designed our training in a way that caters to the needs of everyone, including those with work or family commitments. Our aim is to meet you exactly where you are and support you along the way. We recommend completing the 300-hour training over the course of one year, as there are many topics to cover, and taking longer to absorb the teachings is beneficial.
Students have the flexibility to participate in the training whenever possible until all the necessary content has been covered. This approach allows for a personalized learning experience without compromising the quality of the training.
During the training period, students are welcome to attend any yoga class at our studio!
Costs and Certification:
The training costs 3600 Euros and includes all training materials. Accommodation can be arranged in our yoga studio subject to availability.

What is special about this Training?
At our Matsya Studio in Vienna, we prioritize quality in our yoga teacher training. For us, yoga is about growth, evolution, and a better world - and it all starts with you. That's why we're committed to providing you with the very best.
Our yoga teacher training is founded on deep yoga practice, but unlike other trainings, we also take a closer look at the philosophical and spiritual roots of yoga as well. This means that we'll not only explore the traditional texts of Kundalini Yoga, but we'll also dive into the root tantras of the Kundalini Yoga tradition - texts that are surprisingly unknown today. I'm truly excited to share their secrets with all true seekers.
In my opinion, it's essential to ground your practice in a firm understanding of tradition. This knowledge will give every graduate of our school the strength to continue their own journey safely and with confidence.
Our yoga teacher training follows a long tradition of yoga, going back to Satyananda, Shri Aurobindo, and the tantric lineage of Laksmanjoo. We incorporate the beauty and power of Hatha Yoga, as well as the energy and passion of Kundalini, and the essence of this teaching is simply your own heart - your most important teacher.
In this international yoga teacher training we offer all course materials, classes, and handbooks in English, so that we can include the broadest possible range of people.
Start possible at any time
We offer our 300-hour yoga teacher training in such a way that anyone, whether working or tied to family commitments, can participate in the training. It brings me joy that we can pick you up exactly where you need it.
The 300-hour training is best completed over the duration of one year (intensive is also possible), as many subjects are taught and a longer period offers the right framework to slowly get in touch with yourself. Students have the opportunity to participate whenever possible until all the necessary content has been covered. In this way, the training adapts to the needs of our students without losing quality.
During this period, all yoga classes can also be attended in the studio!
Structure of the 300-hour Training
The 300-hour yoga training is divided into five modules, each consisting of one week, from Monday to Friday. The first four modules of the 300-hour training are almost identical to those of the 200-hour training.
Each of the five modules also concludes with a test for self-reflection.
1.Module - Philosophy and History of Hatha and Kundalini Yoga
In this module, we dive into the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, The Bhagavad Gita, and the Ishavasya Upanishad, exploring the foundations of yogic philosophy.
We examine what yoga means today and how modern Kundalini and Hatha Yoga evolved from ancient tantra and spirituality.
2.Module - Yogic Anatomy, Chakras, Koshas, Prana, Western Anatomy
This 2nd module is all about the inner world of yoga - a world of vision and magic. We study the Manthan Bhairava Tantra and Purnananda's Sat Chakra Nirupana, discovering exercises for these inner worlds, exploring bija and sound in yoga.
We also learn about the planes of reality - the koshas, prana, the flow of life, and classical western anatomy.
3. Module - Class Design, Didactics, Asana, Kriya
The third module teaches us how to create a yoga class, from its structure and design to its didactics. We learn how to create a class in a natural flow and how everyone can develop their talents in the practice of yoga.
We explore the Pavanmuktasana and 42 Asanas and Kriyas.
4. Module - Pranayama, Bandha, Mudra
In this module, we study the Hatha Yoga Pradipika and the Goraksha Shatakam, both dealing with Kundalini Yoga and techniques such as Bandha and Mudra, as well as the breathing techniques of Hatha and Kundalini Yoga.
We learn the Maha Mudra, Ajagari, and Sukshma Vyayama.
5. Module - Tantra, Siva Sutras, Meditation, and Vijnana Bhairava Tantra
In the final module, we discover the beauty of tantric philosophy and dive into the mysticism of the Shiva Sutras. Then, we explore the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra, a journey to tantric meditation that seeks to make all possible experiences a vehicle for cosmic experience.
Join us on this journey and experience the transformative power of yoga.
