“Vinyasa Flow Yoga Teacher Training (Y.A.I 200 hours)”

Train yourself with the best teachers and gain International Yoga Certification (Y.A.I 200 hours)

Palaiochora (Southern Crete) 20/10 – 10/11 2018


BFS Academy & Yoga in Crete, in collaboration with Ioanna Koliakoudaki and Panos Kontogiorgos, organize the professional training program “Vinyasa Flow Yoga Teacher Training 200 hours” in Palaiochora of Southern Crete. BFS Academy, well-established in the field of specialized alternative fitness and wellness programs, both in Greece and abroad, aims at people who want top quality education with international certification and professional recognition.


The aim of the course is to support the future Yoga teacher in all his/her steps and to provide him/her with the necessary knowledge and tools for his/her integration into the demanding professional environment. This intensive training program will offer you the unforgettable experience to obtain your international diploma within 22 days in a lovely setting in southern Crete.


The sea, the Cretan nature and the wonderful healthy food will be the best combination for the students of our educational program. The courses will be held in the hotel’s lovely grounds in nature, while high standards of their stay will help them to cope with the demands of the daily program.


In BFS Academy, we argue that a healthy and relaxed teaching environment can creatively enhance the educational process of the student, since the natural environment is an integral part of yoga. The daily occupation with the teaching of Yoga, and the precious time spent by the whole training group during this time, will form a strong knowledge and experience base.

The professional training program of BFS Academy offers:

International certification from Yoga Alliance International (India)

Upon completion of the training program, you immediately obtain International Yoga Certification by the official body of the Indian Government, Y.A.I.


The duration of certification is for a lifetime.
