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, 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. 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.
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.
Germany-born but raised in Italy, Beatrice is coming from a design and communication background; creativity and curiosity have always been her life motive.
She discovered yoga in a period of massive change where finally she found herself grounding back into the yoga mat. In 2012, Beatrice completed Baron Baptiste Level 1 and 2 with Baron Baptiste, himself. Over the last years, she has traveled around Europe to expand her knowledge attending workshops with many teachers such as Kathryn Budig and Tiffany Cruikshank. Beatrice also supplemented her studies with a Pregnancy and Postnatal Yoga teacher training in order to fully help women in these precious stages of transition and development.
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 – cultivating acceptance, instead of using energy to try to change them. Beatrice is a advocate of using energy to plant seeds for happiness in all its meanings.
I’ve always been physically active, usually the more intense the training the more I’d love it. I wanted to know more about everything about physical activity and chose to start studying Human Movement Sciences. During my study I’d sometimes do yoga, but only if I could find a class that I thought was challenging enough.
Still the only practice that existed in my mind was a practice that made you sweat and got you tired. When I got injured, because of overtraining (who would have thought…) I started doing some more slow classes like yin and slow vinyasas. I always knew I could learn so much from yoga and really needed all it had to offer.
Noortje completed one of the first vinyasa yoga teacher trainings at TULA, and of course finished the anatomy exams with flying colours. Ever since then Noortje is the go-to person for anatomy questions and trainer of the anatomy module in all vinyasa teacher trainings.
Ruben Stelma is co-founder of TULA yogastudio’s and before yoga took over his live Ruben was an inspired hospitality manager. Working in all sorts of hospitality companies as eg. hotelmanager, F&B manager, sommelier and hospitality advisor he developed a keen sense of how to work with people and make sure everybody feels comfortable.
After his study international hospitality management Ruben finished his academic study in communication science making him highly experienced on how the communicate and build and maintain relations. His clear view on communication and acting as a teacher will help you prepare for your classes, strengthen you in your role as teacher and make you comfortable in engaging with students.
Besides communication practice Ruben will also share his knowledge about the business of yoga and being a teacher.

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.

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 2 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 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!”
