frequently asked questions

Can I start in module 2?

Yes you can! You can start at any module, that has your interest. In some cases, people only follow one of some modules. That is possible too. Again, it’s recommended to follow all modules to get the whole picture and if you start with 1, it has a certain logic (skeleton etc/ body first, and mind (M5, M6, M7 later).

Can I pay in installments?

Yes you can, see the form below. If you wish to pay in different installments than what shows in this form or use another way of paying, we have to add up to € 30,00 administration costs.

Where can I find more information on the content?

Please, download this svastha-content brochure. 

Is this training accredited with yoga alliance or the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT)?

Yes, right now, it’s accredited with Yoga Alliance (500h) and we are happy to announce that accreditation will be requested for IAYT soon.

So – it’s NOT YET an accredited IAYT program. More information, directly via info@svastha.net and follow our email updates. We will announce the status of this proces here.

Is Network Yoga Therapy offering anything to support me during my studies?

Yes, we offer online case study, (online-) meet-ups and masterclasses. Check this page to see what’s happening now. Also we offer integration support/ mentoring. Email us for more information see this page.

Where will the training be held?

The training will happen at a beautiful, light yoga studio named: Tula Yoga, Bos en Lommerplein 175, 1055 AD Amsterdam (west).  Close to the highway, a parking and easy to reach with public transportation.

How can I find a good place to stay in Amsterdam?

We always advice to check bookings.com and airbnb, but what often happens as well, is that international students become friends with local students and they agree on staying with them (for free or perhaps for a nice price). We use the Network Yoga Therapy facebook group to try to make these arrangements.
