Seriously the best decision I made in the last 10 years 🙂 I’m super happy with the training!
I’m not sure you know how much it does mean to me to have been part of this.
Is this program right for you?
Our registered 200-hour training does much more than deepen your yoga practice and help you develop as a teacher; it is a program intended to inspire transformation in your life. Through the study of asana, pranayama, lifestyle philosophy, ayurveda, anatomy and beyond, watch the changes unfold on and off your mat!
This program is suitable for any level of student. However, we do advice to have a self-practice of at least two times a week for at least two years. Our yoga style of focus is that of Vinyasa, however, the tools gained will be transferable to many styles of yoga.
After graduating from this Teacher Training (passing a written and practical exam), you are eligible for a Yoga Alliance Certification RYT-200 (Registered Yoga Teacher).
The amazing groups of
MOENA DE JONG
Practicing and teaching yoga is an art, connecting to the heart.
Moena teaches her classes the same way she loves to receive lessons: welcoming at all times, open to positive, transformative experiences. Aside from your unique individual experience of feeling more open and gaining a broader perspective of your possibilities, you feel the magic of a group synergy as the energy in class is uplifting.
As much as Moena has a razor blade sharp eye for Alignment she loves the fluidity of music that flows organically with the movements. As she has a passion for the Sanskrit language, she also has a lifetime love relationship with Mantra’s. She will surely share this with you with the use of her harmonium.
Her quality is to make all unique and different individuals feel welcome and connected. Dare to be different and radiate in your weirdness is her biggest source of inspiration.
“Moena really knows how to properly teach and to keep us engaged and concentrated throughout the whole day. She is also incredibly funny and witty. I absolutely loved her energy and teachings. She is very inspiring.”
Beatrice discovered yoga in a period of massive change where finally she found herself grounding back into the yoga mat. Moved by her curiosity, she undertook her first yoga teacher training simply to deepen her knowledge both spiritually and physically. After completing the course, she immediately started teaching to absolve the desire to share with others the benefits that yoga brought into her life, hoping that others could experience the same in their life too.
She continued to deepen her studies of life and yoga attending Level1 and 2 trainings with Baron Baptiste and over the last years, she expanded her knowledge attending workshops and trainings with many teachers such as Kathryn Budig, Tiffany Cruikshank, Annie Carpenter, Rocky Heron, Noah Mazè just to name a few. Beatrice also supplemented her studies with a Pregnancy and Postnatal Yoga teacher training with Uma Dinsmore and a Yin Yoga and meridians teacher training with Annie Au. But the journey as a student never ends!
In the last years she taught in Italy, Switzerland and Netherlands in lots of yoga studios, companies, public events and to athletes, making yoga accessible to everyone. Besides giving regular classes she is the lead teacher in multiple Teacher Training Programs in The Netherlands and Switzerland.
Beatrice’s mantra is “let it be” – this means living a life without attachment to fully exist in the present moment. Allowing people, situations, yourself just being as they are and, instead of using energy to try to change them, to focus into our actions to plant seeds for happiness in all its meanings.
“Beatrice felt like my mother figure in this training. Strict, yet also very warm. She really gave me a lot of confidence and helped me be authentic.”

The word “Ayur” comes from the Sanskrit word “Ayuh” meaning life and “Veda” can be translated as wisdom or knowledge. So basically, Ayurveda means “the knowledge of life”. In its essence Ayurveda provides you with the knowledge of who you are and how to live your life in harmony. For this you need to understand your own mind-body personality (dosha) and Ayurveda gives you the key to this understanding. On top of that, it is the first ever recorded system of healing the physical, mental and energetic body. Fundamentally, it is giving each individual the personal tools to live a balanced and fulfilled lifestyle.
Moena and Beatrice mindfully created this training and improved it over the years. Every training day will contain a yoga class (or two), theoretical study and practical studies. During the training there will be teacher assistants who will support you during teaching practice hours. These assistants are trainees from previous trainings, and are now teaching at Tula as well.

After this training, will I be ready to start as a yoga teacher?
When you’ve completed this training and have received the TULA certificate we trust you to be a capable yoga teacher. You’ve learned all the basic principles to provide a wonderful class, so you’re ready to teach. However, if this is your first training you will notice that there’s so much more to learn that doesn’t fit into one 200hour training. Therefore you can see your first training as a strong foundation to build on.
How many training days may be missed?
Of course we prefer you don’t miss a day, but if it happens you may miss two training days. When you miss more you can choose to book private yoga classes with the lead trainers. When you’ve missed to many days you can’t receive a certificate.
How much study time can I expect?
Besides the training days and joining yoga classes you may expect about 4 hours of studying per week.
I don’t think I want to become a yoga teacher, is that okay?
It certainly is. Usually halve of the participants join this training to strengthen and deepen their own practice. That’s totally fine. It will give you great personal insights as well, besides all the yoga information.
How can I know if this yoga teacher training is right for me?
We always advise to join one of the free introduction sessions at TULA, but also at other yoga studios. It’s very important that you feel a connection with the teacher(s) and the studio. If the feeling is not right you won’t enjoy the full potential of the training. We wrote a blog article about choosing the right yoga teacher training (in Dutch) that might be helpful > blog
What happens when there is a lockdown?
In case of a lockdown the Teacher Training will continue via an online livestream on the same days as planned.

What others say about this training
Judith (2019) “I loved the commitment and personal approach of the teachers (who are like the sun and the moon, both giving their different takes on yoga, which enriched my teacher training), I loved the dynamic of our heartwarming group, laughing and crying our way to becoming a yoga teacher.”
Sarah (2018) “Van oktober 2017 tot april 2018 volgde ik de Vinyasa Teacher Training bij Tula. De training was super goed opgezet en de docenten hebben een bak aan ervaring en kennis. Wat mij betreft is deze training de perfecte basis voor als je yoga docent wilt worden of meer wilt weten van yoga.”
Noortje (2018) “Na een aantal fijne yogalessen bij Tula, heb ik ook mijn teacher training hier gedaan. Mijn keus voor Tula heb ik vooral gemaakt vanwege de focus op anatomie en de juiste uitvoering van yoga poses, maar ook vanwege de sfeer in de studio’s. Tijdens de training is ook veel aandacht besteed aan een eigen stijl als yoga teacher en is ervoor gezorgd dat we het zelfvertrouwen kregen om les te gaan geven. Dit had ik aan het begin van de training echt niet verwacht! Ik heb geen moment spijt gehad van mijn keuze en ben hartstikke tevreden over alles wat Tula mij geleerd heeft 🙂 Dankjulliewel!”
