There is time to walk in the countryside, meditate in our natural space in the woods, swim in the refreshing waters of the river or our sparkling swimming pool and visit local markets and attractions. Take this time to visit one of the most beautiful parts of France – the Dordogne region.

BECOME A TEACHER WITH A DIFFERENCE
YogaKoh is thrilled to be offering their first European based 200hr YTT. An amazing opportunity for you to experience your teacher training in the lush country side of the Dordogne Valley in the South of France. A creative space built with love by a community of artists that will become your home away from home.
This training is designed to challenge you from Day 1. We delve deep into the most important elements of the practice. Philosophy, asana, pranyama, meditation, energetics and specialty topics, but most importantly we focus on the art of teaching, finding your voice and the confidence to lead your own class by the end of the month. We combine the importance of tradition with the beauty of creativity and the support of modern science. Your experienced teachers are hands on and 100% invested in your success. We want you to shine, and will give you the tools to make this dream a reality.
Yoga is a way of life, and with our YTT program we give you the tools to find your own way, and encourage you to share it with others.
Find out for yourself why this is a training with a difference. We laugh, share, grow and learn together. You might come on your own, but trust us, you will leave as part of a koh-mmunity.
Step out of your comfort zone and join a month long journey of learning and exploration. Trust yourself to come into a handstand. Walk through the hillside in the late afternoon and see for yourself how this training will make an everlasting impact on you and your practice!
*THIS YTT WILL BE IN BOTH ENGLISH AND FRENCH*

MORE ABOUT THE INCLUSIONS
The Yoga Shala is quiet and calm, overlooking the Dordogne valley surrounded by trees and nature.
The large windows face east and open onto the land so you can feel the wind and listen to the rain.
Perfect for early morning practice, the room has a wonderful energy.
There is also a meditation space in the forest nearby, perfect for peace and solitude. Surrounded by trees you are quite hidden and alone. You can hear the wind rustling the leaves, enjoy the singing birds, and sometimes you may spot the odd deer foraging.
Yogis can expect three wholesome and nutritious vegetarian meals a day.
These meals are prepared
onsite and by our private chef.
Our chefs will be using local produce and inspiration, designing food to nourish and energy you for the month.
As this is a communal living space, meals are shared and it is the collaboration of the group to keep the living spaces clean and accessible for all throughout the month.
Led by Aurelie Poles
Aurelie first discovered yoga in London, where she lived for 9 years, as a way to recover from an injury during her time as a professional dancer. She quickly realized that not only it was the perfect physical practice for her body, it also brought her so much more: calm, ease and simplicity.
After a few years of practice, she went on to train in Bali where she received her 200RYT certification. This island dear to her heart is where she fell in love with teaching.
Ever since she moved back to France, she has worked as a teacher in various studios and started leading workshops and retreats while still dancing.
Aurelie then began teaching on trainings and is now thrilled to be running YogaKoh's first European based YTT! It is always with such delight and excitement that she goes to share her love for this practice with others looking to deepen their knowledge and search of a new path. She is so deeply grateful to be able to be joining the Koh-mmunity on future trainings.
Assited by Maud Leger
My name is Maud (she), I am a yoga teacher and yoga therapist. My approach is holistic and anchored in both the yoga tradition and modern science. Based in Melbourne for 10 years, and now France.
Tantra and Ayurveda are at the core of my practice, with more than 1300 hours of training. I am certified E-RYT 500, a Vedic Meditation practitioner as well as studying naturopathy in INH, Paris directed by Odile Chabrillac.
My purpose is to empower people through a tailored practice that balances mind, body, heart and spirit, incorporating movement (both intuitive/somatic and alignment-based), pranayama, kriya, mantra, meditation, naturopathy and lifestyle rituals. Through my commitment to the healing and empowerment of the people I work with I aim to bring about a more emotionally intelligent and livable world. It is my life's purpose and my greatest joy.
I’m thrilled to be joining Aurélie Poles and Yogakoh to lead people through a transformational
month of intelligent 200hr yoga teacher training.
