50hrs. Pre-Teacher Training,
by Beatrice Savaris & Moena de Jong
START July 2024
” The pre-teacher training was a great experience! It brought me a lot. Moena and Beatrice have been a huge inspiration to me and I loved the location. Next step: the 200hrs. teacher training! ”
The foundations of yoga
This 50hrs program is for everybody who wants to take the next step in their yoga career. This is the perfect training to set the foundations before doing the 200 hours yoga teacher training. The training is spread over 4 weekends were we will explore the foundations of yoga. Different aspects of yoga practice will be covered. You can think of philosophy, mantra, meditation, asana alignment and pranayama. This will give you the tools to integrate the gained knowledge in your personal practice on and off the yoga mat.
This program is right for you!
In the regular yoga classes we do not always have enough time to dive deeper into a particular subjects. Most classes are just 75 minutes and this time frame is too short to elaborate on subjects as meditation, pranayama or meditation. We need more time to guide you though these practices and most important of all, we need more time to explain and truly explore.
If you are a regular yogi or if you are thinking of doing a yoga teacher training, then this program is for you!
The yoga style of our focus is that of Vinyasa, however, the tools gained will be transferable to many styles of yoga.
We will not only explore the asana practice, but we will also have a closer look into the alignment of each asana, so you can take the next step in your practice. Furthermore we will take a deep dive into the yoga philosophy, we will chant mantra’s together and will take our time to learn about pranayama and meditation practices.
What others say about this training
Olga – “As a regular yogi I wanted to really dive deeper into the practice of yoga. This training showed me that there is more than just the asana practice on the yogamat. Thank you Moena and Beatrice for your guidance; it has been a wonderful experience!”
Ardjan – “I decided to do the Yoga Pre-Teacher Training before doing a Yoga Teacher Training. Honestly, this was really the best decision as it gave me the foundation I needed before starting a 200hrs intensive training. A big thanks to Moena and Beatrice; they are truly inspiring!”
Maartje (2021) “De yogalessen bij Tula heb ik altijd superfijn gevonden, maar al dat oefenen bracht ook vragen bij me om. Ik besloot de Yoga Development Training mee te doen om meer te leren over de yoga filosofie en verschillende technieken, zoals pranayama. Ik kom namelijk uit een burn-out, dus de ademhaling is iets wat me in de praktijk positief kan helpen. Deze training heeft met zoveel gebracht; ik voel me nu sterker, zowel fysiek als mentaal.”
During this program we will explore all the different aspects of yoga and we will dive deep into specific subjects. We will cover things which we cannot cover in a regular yoga class due to the lack of time.
This is your chance to learn everything you need to know about yoga. Subjects which we will cover are:
○ The practice of Vinyasa Yoga
○ The families of asanas through the study of the main asanas and alignments
○ Asanas modifications and how to adapt them according to your body and your needs
○ Different breathing techniques (pranayama)
○ How to be present through meditation to stay in the here and now
○ The philosophy of yoga through the study of the 8 limbi as from Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra
○ The knowledge of yourself through journaling and reflection exercises
This is a great program to deepen your own yoga practice and a great program to do as a preparation for a Yoga Teacher Training.

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.”

If you are considering joining a Yoga Teacher Training to become a teacher, this course will provide you with the essential and fundamental knowledge that will allow you to start that path with greater confidence and awareness.
