Teacher Training
Hatha Yoga 200 hour


200h Teacher Training at The YogaCenter Montreux

Do you want to learn the profession of Hatha Yoga teacher or simply motivated by understanding and deepening this ancestral practice?

For this we have a team of passionate professionals who will be happy to support you during your RYS 200 and RYS 300 training at YogaCenter, a school recognized and accredited by Yoga Alliance International (USA).

First of all, the pillars of the YogaCenter, Patrick and Ardiana Nolfo. Patrick created his school in Montreux in 2001 after having spent 2 years internally at the Bihar School University of Yoga and obtained the mention of Master of Yoga. He has acquired more than 30 years of practice (Hatha Yoga, Pranayama, meditation, Yoga Nidra) and more than 20 years of teaching in Switzerland and abroad. He is a naturopath and studied academic medicine. His specialties: inverted postures and arm balance poses, strength, muscle cladding, gentle mental coaching, determination and respect for the yogic tradition.

Ardiana Nolfo practiced Kyukushin IFK (International Karate Federation) for 13 years and was in the Swiss national team before taking up Hatha Yoga. From a medical profession and already accustomed to being in touch with both the very young and the elderly, she has been able to integrate this advantage into her teaching at YogaCenter since 2008. Her feminine energy of kindness, listening, consideration of being as a whole and self-respect makes her an ideal complement to the energy of her husband Patrick. She especially enjoys alignments, stretching, muscle cladding, Pranayama and meditation. For her, the important thing during this yoga teacher training is to get out of your comfort zone so that you gain more self-confidence, be at ease and come out proud of yourself with your diploma in your pocket.

Both are precise, demanding and well-meaning in their teaching. They like a challenge and will expect a personal investment from you throughout your training.

François, physiotherapist passionate about the human body, will be there to teach you anatomy with humor and precision. He practices Yoga and is therefore particularly able to answer all your questions about the biomechanics of the body and its mysteries.

Carole is a Doctor of Ayurvedic Medicine. She spent more than 6 years in full immersion in India for her studies and practices in her Ayurvedic Medicine practice in Belmont-sur-Lausanne. She will introduce you to the basics of Ayurveda in a fun, simple and understandable way.

Christophe is a Truth seeker who knows philosophy like the back of his hand and has clearly integrated it. He has been practicing Yoga and meditation for over 30 years. He will be happy to share with you his immense knowledge: the Bhagavad Gita and its messages, mantras and philosophy in a global way.

As the quality is really important for us, we strive to provide you a very good Yoga Teacher Training so that by the end of your year of study and discovery you’ll be ready to begin or follow on the path of teaching Hatha Yoga. The enthusiasm and support of the trainers will be ideal to achieve this.

This 200h certified YOGA ALLIANCE (USA) training allows you to obtain a diploma recognized worldwide.
