Why Choose Santosha for your Online Yoga Teacher Training Journey?


‘Such a Strong Sense of Community, Love and Passion through my Laptop!’ 

The four weeks training exceeded my expectations! Sunny and the Santosha team are so welcoming and kind, I never thought I could feel such a strong sense of community, love and passion through my laptop! The courses are well organized and very complete.

I have learned so much from yoga history to anatomy, the foundations of the asanas and breathing techniques. The challenging part for me was to deconstruct what I had learned in my own yoga practice, in order to teach in a safe way for my future students.

After four weeks I felt confident I could teach a small class. My life has been turned upside down with the COVID crisis. This training not only gave me new future perspectives, it also helped me go through a difficult time and listen to myself. I can only recommend!

‘Most Wonderful and Knowledgeable Instructors’

I’ve very recently completed my 200 hour yoga teacher training with Santosha. I’m so grateful that this opportunity came up and I was able to learn from the most wonderful and knowledgeable instructors from around the world. There is so much to learn and I have been fully supported both during the course and ongoing. My intention was originally to deepen my own practice, as I love that inner peace I would always feel when doing yoga, and I wanted to tap into that further. I’ve come away with such amazement at what I learnt as yoga is really so much more than I thought. I’m so happy to have found answers and I want to share my love for yoga with all.

Melanie Ceveri – Certified Online RYT-200 Yoga Teacher Training Graduate


‘All the Help and Support You Could Need’

Being able to get certified online with Santosha was a real blessing. Although online, the course was very thorough and all the help and support that you could need was available so you still feel totally held throughout the process. It was also great to be connected with many more yogis from around the globe. Now I have completed the training I hope to begin to teach specifically trauma informed yoga in order to help people heal. Namaskaar!

Erica Hands  Certified Online RYT-200 Yoga Teacher Training Graduate


‘Best Investment I Have Ever Made’

The Santosha 200hr YTT course is the kindest, most loving and most caring thing I have ever invested in for myself. I had been interested in becoming a yoga teacher for a long time and this course was more incredible than I could have ever imagined. It truly is a ‘yoga experience filled with love’.

Some questions I remember having when looking for the right school where ‘who are the teachers and what are they like’ and ’what kind of yoga do they teach’. I was so pleased to learn that Santosha teaches traditional yoga as yoga was intended in a safe manner that is accessible for every-body. Santosha teaches yoga that is true and honest, not any fad or popular craze, and in a way that is simple and provides a strong and safe foundation on which to build.

All the teachers and support staff of Santosha are absolutely incredible. The knowledge they have and the way they teach is brilliant and inspiring.

I did the 200hr course online and it was an absolutely incredible way to do it. I felt so connected to my group of fellow students and teachers. The pre-recorded lectures are amazing and the live Zoom sessions where the highlight of this course. I was able to self pace and fit the study into my schedule and the support from the teachers was amazing. I felt included and supported the whole way through.

I am so grateful that this course was made available online so that I could take part without having to travel or take time off work. I will be continuing on with Santosha for further studies. This online 200hr YTT course is the best investment I have ever made and can recommend this course, from the heart, to anyone interested in becoming a yoga teacher.

Katie McDonagh  Certified Online RYT-200 Yoga Teacher Training Graduate


‘So Much More than I Expected’

Having not studied for years I was worried about my ability to retain information and writing assignments. However, although the course is extremely thorough – the suggested reading lists, the online manuals and videos were great. Easy to understand. 

The staff were fantastic. Sunny showed me by keeping calm I was more focused and to use this not only in my practise but in my life. 

Now that I have finished the course, I can see that it has given me so much more than I expected. I enjoy my practice more and feel more committed to my way of life as I see and feel the benefits. I am much more confident in my classes as well as technology (I even managed online classes in the lockdown!) I’m now considering doing more courses with Santosha. 

It’s probably the best value for money I have spent in a long time.
